Yeah, putting your job at risk to avoid watching something you disagree with, seems pretty silly to me.
I mean, when my work threw an optional LGBT awareness thing, I went and listened to the guy. When he used the word ‘homophobe’, I raised my hand and asked him for a definition. He said “That’s someone with an irrational fear of gay people.” I told him that sounded like me, I had felt a little irrational fear in coming, and I asked him if he thought I was a homophobe. Guy stammered out a retraction pretty quickly.
Afterwords, I went up and shook his hand, and we talked a little about the only thing I could think of that we could connect on: X-Men 3 was coming out in a few weeks.
I mean dang - it’s not like I’m going to hell now, right? I didn’t ‘catch gay’ from him. My brain didn’t get washed.
I don’t get people who refuse to allow information into their brains. It’s not like they have to believe everything they hear. It’s not like they need to get offended or injured if someone tells them false stuff.
