Support everyone’s differences and encourage others to do the same. The qualities that make people unique should be celebrated. They make the world more interesting.
Make an effort to call people out for using offensive language. A lot of slurs are perpetuated because they go unchecked.
Call out gender policing that discriminates against a person’s level of masculinity or femininity when you see it.
