Thought: We can’t be angry at people who display bigoted behaviours and thoughts. Bigotry can stem from a lack of knowledge. We can’t be mad if people don’t know something. We need to teach them. If after teaching, displaying the facts (white is not superior to non-white, men are not superior to women, “normal” is not superior to “abnormal”), and still a complete disregard is still shown, that is when we should be upset, not for ourselves but for that person. It must be hard to live in a head that can’t stop hating when living in a world that is showing us how important it is to love each other.
One of my amazing friends and fellow Madvocate has written about her hateful experiences while attending Canada’s top theatre school. No words I say can describe the stupidity of what Flossie experienced but she does it amazingly and will make you laugh while enraging you! Although these people ended her theatre career she will not let that stop her! She still acts in Canadian film, tv shows and commercials and is looking to change how theatre is taught to aspiring actors!
