Based on the above categories it might have already struck a chord with a few people. Of course disagreement happens and what is written can never replace the ability to understand what comes from being in person with someone.
But no matter in person or online there seems to be a growing trend for people to feel it’s right to restrict what people can say or how they can say it.
Before I go any further we welcome all people – races, ethnicity, conservative, liberal, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, male, female, transgender, old, young, rich, poor, and everything and everyone.
Words and phrases that are historically racist or derogatory are not allowed.
At the same time we judge what is allowed to be said based on intention.
Having all these people in the room gives us the opportunity to uncover assumptions and really find out why people think the way they do, and allow them to face the reality of their assumptions.
For example, there might be someone who disagrees with homosexuality – but sitting across from them is wonderful and kind person sitting across from them that identifies as homosexual. In order for both of them to come to an understanding, there might be certain things that are difficult to say or talk about.
Censoring what can and can’t be said doesn’t allow for this to happen…
Instead, it’s better to create a space for disagreements within respect and reason. This is the only way to have important discussions that allow people to build empathy.
