Teaching about the evils of racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia and other social ills is very important in these days we live in. For our society to advance you have to peel back the curtain that some would rather keep closed because that means they are complicit in making life hard for others. Without these lessons those who seek to take the country back to a dark place will win. America should be a place for life, liberty and happiness for all. Future generations depend on that promise. Teach our children well because their lives literally depend on it.

Absolutely agree with what you’ve posted. Teaching such basics like homophobia, gender equality and other basic rights is so important to set the foundation right for the future times. I’ve personally been in conversations and situations where I was surrounded with people with low or no sense of these terms. I feel such a sense of loss for them and hope that the future generation or even present realize and progress gracefully.

Absolutely. Children aren’t born hating others–it’s a learned behaviour.
