As one of the most brilliant women ever implored us:
“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
Every day we are learning.
Every day we each have an opportunity to know more and do more to improve this world.
Come along with me for some new things I’ve learned.
I am a proud ally of nearly* every group of people out there. I do my best to support them, amplify their voices, and contribute financially when possible.
I do not pretend to truly understand anyone else’s life, but I am adamant that recognizing and respecting their words and labels (if they choose to use them).
One of the basic ways to support ANYONE is to use they language they prefer.
Regardless of your own choices and biases, showing another human being respect the absolute least you can do.
*My saying “nearly” is excluding those groups who choose ignorance,
choose to harm other individuals, and other harmful and dangerous choices.
Over the past few years, I have done my best to learn how to be more inclusive in my own language. With Trans Visibility Day yesterday, there were still many things didn’t know that I didn’t know. But I continue to take in the information and bring it into my own life.

Something VERY new to me is the language that the Autism Community prefers. I did not know the preference of the symbols used had changed.
These two posts are very helpful and important.
