Day 126: We all mess up sometimes.

Everyone says sexist things. Everyone says homophobic, transphobic, cissexist, heteronormitive, just plain ridiculous things. It happens. What we need to do when it happens is recognize we were wrong, sincerely apologize, and attempt not to do it again. If we see or hear others do it, we need to call them out on it. We also need to let them know that their words can be very harmful and we need to be careful of what we say. That’s just my two cents.

One thought on “Day 126: We all mess up sometimes.

  1. I totally agree with you! And it’s always important to remember that when you (anyone reading this) think something sexist, racist, homo/bi/pan/trans/whatever it is phobic, that’s just what you’ve been told countless times by society; but when you think twice and decide that your first thought was wrong, this shows that you care and that you really are a good person.
