In our quest for the "facts" about what has happened in the past, one centrally important fact is that Jane is a human being. She is a 16-year-old girl who looks up to Janet Mock, who imagines going to prom, and who wants to be loved. Those facts matter a lot. In my favorite speech delivered by historian Vijay Prashad at an event on mass incarceration held at the Riverside Church in Harlem, Prashad closed with this call to the audience: "We live in freedom by necessity. We must reshape our world. We must love one another, or die." By attempting to take away the humanity of another person and cast them instead as a monster, we endeavor to justify horrible societal abuses. We truly must love one another.
