Let’s stop pretending that pretending does no harm. It hurts the person you think you are sparing of hurt feelings and it hurts society and others around the situation like the child in this story.
Let’s stop pretending the level of wrong in a situation is relative to how much it might hurt someone’s feelings or inconvenience them in some way.
Society cannot and will not survive with morality being subjective. That is anarchy. The only reason such insanity is even possible is because our western societies shield humans from the consequences of their choices. Once that society breaks all that will be left is hard reality. When the west is like, say, some of Africa where you wonder if you will eat tomorrow or if someone or something will kill you, you will not care about your pronouns, your race or any other attribute you might use today to gather woke points.
We must all stop giving into this nonsense because the societal collapse that will follow if we don’t will be swift. You won’t see it coming, you won’t be able to prepare and it will happen all at once. Either we all work together to unify and enhance society and stop being concerned only for ourselves or we all end up being unified in our suffering.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” –John 13:34
