“Other” can make people squirm. So can “different.” It’s the cause of much misunderstanding and strife. Watch this hilarious video about the reactions of some commuters listening to a dad talking to his daughter about her first period. Their perspective is very unlike his. It’s seriously funny. Period.
Best case scenario? Someone else’s perspective is wonderful when it illuminates ours.
Worst case scenario? People who look at the world differently from us, people who have another view (opposing or not), can seem odd, weird, unusual, strange even.
