    Why I’m happy to be a liberal snowflake

    It’s beyond frustrating that things like empathy, tolerance, manners and kindness are what get you branded a ‘snowflake’, ‘SJW’, or some other snide description. How about, instead of laughing at someone, take a minute to understand why they’re offended? I’m not saying I’m perfect (by any means!), but I’m learning as I go. While we’re on it, can we also please stop using ‘liberal’ as an insult. Wanting equality, and respecting others, doesn’t make us ‘whiny pussies’. Times are changing and we need to change with them. We need to listen to survivors, victims and minorities, and learn how to be better. Being open-minded and accepting of others takes nothing…
