If I say or do something that you feel is discriminatory,
feel free to call me out on it. I want you to. I don’t like it, though sometimes I don’t realise I’m doing it. It’s not how I feel, a person is still a person, regardless of gender, race, sexuality, anything that makes them who they are. You can go to town and tear shreds off of me. My immediate reaction may not be pleasant, but the message will sink in.
You’ll probably find that the discriminatory things I say are from this white, male privilege place that I was raised under, that many of you have probably grown up under. What I want to do is separate myself from that, so that I can set a better example than was set for me.
The only exception to this rule is if I’m calling someone a hipster, however, I expect this to change at some point.
