There’s another issue that comes to mind when reading this. People lack nuance and seem to think the Other Side is full of baby eating, weapon wielding, jalapeño flavored barbarians and not simply human beings. I like to use the analogy of cavemen, who has stories of what’s beyond the forest. Stories of giants or seductive mystical creatures, when at best all you can find is another tribe with a scary story. There are 7 billion different ways to be, and probably just as many Other Sides.
I thought about sharing this with my followers on Twitter then realized I may be sharing it because you confirm what I have been saying all this time! 😉
