so my nan was spouting some crap about how gay people aren’t really people because of what it says in the bible so I said “you think the only people who are people, are the people who look and think like you but if you walked the footsteps of a stranger, you’ll learn things you never knew” and she shut the fuck up
she had no idea I was quoting a song from Pocahontas
my faith in my generation has been restored
Something I’ve been learning as I’ve been learning more and more about race- most of the time as a white person you just need to shut the hell up and listen. Even if you think you know or you feel offended. Just listen a bit longer and you’ll learn even more than if you open your mouth.
