It matters because I’m an American, damnit. I live in what is supposed to be the greatest nation on earth, a nation presumably built on justice and rights that are equal for every citizen, not just the privileged. An assault on the rights of one of us, for any reason (race, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status…any reason) is an assault on the rights of all of us
For the men, my only advice must be…don’t be some toxic hard-headed butthead.
People are fighting hard for their rights, which might seem like a lot of work, but they are only working hard because of the people working so hard to make our society hostile towards them.
How much time and effort has been wasted on what seems to me to be an obvious truth; that everybody is the same? How much talent, intelligence, and creativity have we discarded because the source had the wrong skin color, or because they were the wrong gender, or because their God had the wrong name?
