Melissa Etheridge wrote “Tuesday Morning” to pay respect and give recognition to the LGBTQ* individuals involved in the events of September 11th. The song pays special tribute to Mark Bingham, a rugby player from San Francisco, who along with others overpowered the hijackers on Flight 93.
“The world is not divided into sheeps and goats. Not all things are black nor all things white. It is a fundamental of taxonomy that nature rarely deals with discrete categories. Only the human mind invents categories and tries to force facts into separated pigeon-holes. The living world is a continuum in each and every one of its aspects. The sooner we learn this concerning sexual behavior the sooner we shall reach a sound understanding of the realities of sex.”—~Alfred Kinsey, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, 1948
