Aw shucks, you’re making me blush.

I agree, of course. I am of the mindset that if you don’t love all types of people then you really just love (duplicates of) yourself, but the less altruistic, self-preservative version of “when they came for me there was no one left to speak out” which I think you reference is also valid.

I have a serious problem with people who don’t speak out on behalf of “others” causes. I know way too many men who say they believe in the right to choice but don’t do a damn thing to support it — along with whites who decry racism, straights who decry LGBTQ bias, yadda yadda yadda, but say nothing. Silence is assent, and it makes the Trump of this world possible.

Sorry for the rant, I know I’m preaching to the choir. Just something I feel strongly about, now more than ever.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
