So fucking powerful.
Poverty has became so normal people just accept it now. But when someone attacks the poor, they get angry.
This is the most important thing to understand: something that may seem innocent to you may be painful to others
I recently had someone say to me, “Well X group can’t just expect us all to be mentally updating our list of words that are insulting to them.” I was like “Yes… they can?” It’s not “ooooh evil political correctness,” it’s basic human decency.
the one thing that has stuck with me every day since my English teacher told me it in middle school is:
"When referring to someone, always say who they are before anything else about them, because being a person always comes first"
Instead of saying “the mentally ill man,” say “the man with a mental illness”
Putting someone’s characteristics (especially negative ones) before them is dehumanizing and rude. Don’t do it.
Parenting done right.
they had one of the ninja turtles tied up tho
way better than that elf on a shelf bullshit
