Stop mistaking harmless ignorance as downright disrespect, not everyone in the goddamn world is educated of the 500000+ different gender identities. You spend 99% of your time sitting on your ass browsing a website built from the ground up on social justice concepts; don’t expect others to be aware of the deep abyss of the gender universe when some people aren’t even aware that gender and sex are two different things.

The cause of racism is often fear of the unknown - lack of knowledge about other cultures. Travel, explore and learn - open your mind.

I will ALWAYS, ALWAYS, reblog this every time it comes up on my blog. This is the BEST statement, I’ve ever seen. 

I really love this. So many are dead-set on the view that people cannot better themselves but that simply isn’t true. Everybody deserves a second chance and everybody has the ability to better themselves. 

Part of what I like about this is that the hatred was solved by kindness. Everyone he meets is nice, or at the very least decent. Of course we know it doesn’t work this simply in real life - he probably would’ve been cruel to quite a few people, and vice versa upon learning about his racism, but I think in terms of smaller-scale issues this kind of scenario is totally plausible (since I fear a member of a group as powerful and frightening as the KKK or the Nazi party would probably take a bit more than kindness to change their ways).

A homophobe finding out her best friend is gay and subsequently meeting all of his really nice queer friends, with none of the “political agenda” or “perversion” she’d assumed they would have. A sexist being sent to a summer camp populated by mostly girls, and learning very quickly through campfire discussions that their plights of catcalling and sexual harassment aren’t nearly as rare as he’d once thought. These are things that can and do happen.

Nobody’s mind was ever changed by meanness or a snide tone.

Over three years James Mollison photographed fans outside different concerts for his project The Disciples. As I photographed the project I began to see how the concerts became events for people to come together with surrogate ‘families’, a chance to relive their youth or try and be part of a scene that happened before they were born.”
