I'm pissed off at those who trash my ignorance.
Jul 14, 2019
- I don't get involved in posts about societal evolution even though I am curious about certain sensitive subjects because people think I am dumb or I don't have the right to discuss certain things because of my beliefs. I don't enjoy being labelled as a bigot when people take my comments to posts the wrong way, as I am definitely not a bigot. I live by the Lord's teachings of loving Him and loving others as I love myself, but my personal processing speed in terms of absorbing new ideas and learning new things is really a lot slower than most people's. Just ask people who know me and grew up with me; I have always taken longer to learn and understand things than others.
See, being a person with a disability that grew up in the late 80s, 90s, and early 2000s meant I was sheltered a lot and things were introduced to me slower. I honestly never knew about anything relating to LGBTQ until just a few years ago and all of this information is coming to me so fast that I am getting overwhelmed. People take my ignorance as bigotry and I get attacked or they accuse me of lying about my ignorance. I want to follow God's teachings and learn to be more inclusive and kinder, but I get smacked down by others when I try, so is it really worth it to try? I want to be a better person, but it depresses me that people won't help me grow out of my ignorance and then attack me for not doing it. Growing out of ignorance is not something I can do alone. Why don't people understand that?
