Rupp was born male and is still male.  He is not transgender.  You know that you are doing something right when you have critics.  When people are willing to take the time to throw shade your way, it means that you have been able to move them.  Whether they have chosen to say something positive or negative about you truly doesn’t matter because everyone is entitled to their opinion.

The nation’s largest companies are paying massive amounts of money to force people to pay them attention.  You outperform those companies when you’re able to successfully grasp someone’s attention.  When there are critics talking about you, encourage then to continue because they’re increasing you market value.  Keep up the great work Galen!
