Today’s open thread has been brought to you by your beluga best friend, who says:
People are rude sometimes, arenâ€™t they? They think Iâ€™m strange because theyâ€™ve never seen anything that looks like me. But even if Iâ€™m unusual, I still exist. And I donâ€™t deserve to be singled out like a giant freak just because Iâ€™m a little different. Or a lot different.
The same is true for you, friend. You donâ€™t deserve to be harassed or humiliated for looking or acting or moving differently. You can tell those people, â€œHey, shut up,â€ or â€œDamn, you guys are jerks,â€ or you can say nothing, or you can just walk away. But no matter your reaction, always remember that you didnâ€™t deserve it. Thereâ€™s nothing about how you look that gives anyone the right to harass you. No exceptions.
Love, Your Beluga Best Friend
