- if you are looking for equality, please do not place yourself on a pedestal. the idea is that everyone is equally important and should have equal rights and equal value in society.
- telling everyone how proud you are to be x because x is so different is perfectly okay! having pride in who you are is awesome! but remember not to explain your pride in terms of “x > y”, because… it isn’t. nobody is > anybody. no group is > any other group. we’re all looking for a level of equality,
- one of the biggest problems I see in these sorts of debates is that x, y and z all really want everyone to know how difficult it is for them to do things and be themselves. this is fine. however, there are things that are hard for everyone, and everyone faces challenges. telling everyone how much harder it is to be you or your group is not a step in the direction of equality.. it’s actually separating yourself further.
- it’s hard to be short or tall or big or little or old or young or smart or stupid or any variety of x-, y- or z-sexual or any race that’s ever existed or any other factor that can distinguish an individual from any other individual.
- screaming about how difficult it is to be x or z in a y-society is all fine and dandy, but what if there’s a y that’s actually finding it pretty damn hard to be a y in a y-society?
- it’s hard to be a person! and everyone faces different challenges. and yes! some people face a lot more! but just keep in mind that the things that are hard for you might be hard for someone else too.
