Perhaps above all, better recognition and respect for the things that make us different, as well as the things that unite us all, can bring us towards a more understanding society, better at helping everyone to realise their potential and less likely to leave people isolated and unsupported.

In many ways the internet, and the social sciences, have helped us start collectively coming to terms with how much we vary and what it means, but we have a great deal of work to do to build a society that makes the most of this understanding.
