What a bunch of bullshit. I learned how to be a good person from my parents and who the fuck uses social media to learn those lessons?
Chris (he/him/his) @ChrisYoung
Here's what I've learned so far about being a good person. Much of it I've learned here on Spoutible. And only now have I been able to organize my thoughts around it coherently enough.

If you're a white person you're a racist by default.

If you're cis you're a transphobe by default.

Some folks have shitty parents, so SM is their first real exposure to people of all stripes. Don’t be so dismissive; your experience isn’t everyone else’s.

Shitty parents aside, how about teachers? Peers? The local waitress? Using SM to grow some empathy is ridiculous and that guy was trolling like a motherfucker. I only regret I took the bait.

I don't even like cats. I also don't like statements that describe people in absolute terms; "by default" is a bunch of bullshit.

Hi @Tsquared2001
Some of us thought we were being anti racist when we hadn’t exactly examined our behaviors. We might not have been taught how pervasive racism is, or how it feels
Maybe we weren’t exposed to people that had very different lives than we had.
Life long learning….
