Description:

BE LIKE US. It's only polite. If we wear hats, you should wear a hat, too. BE LIKE US. It angers and confuses us if you're different. It doesn't make sense. Everyone knows WE are right. WE know what's good. WE know what's proper. BE LIKE US. It doesn't matter … (read more)

BE LIKE US. It's only polite. If we wear hats, you should wear a hat, too. BE LIKE US. It angers and confuses us if you're different. It doesn't make sense. Everyone knows WE are right. WE know what's good. WE know what's proper. BE LIKE US. It doesn't matter if you've lived a different life than we have, grew up somewhere else, experienced different things, overcome different challenges, lived by different values. Those values are obviously WRONG if they're not like OURS. BE LIKE US. And if you can't be like us, if you won't be like us, then you should leave.

[FUCKING BULLSHIT.]

[Sorry. I know this is a tender subject, but I don't feel like I should be quiet and just let it go. I CAN'T just let it go. Bullshit must be called out.]

Don't BE LIKE US. Be LIKE YOU. If you respect us, we'll respect you, whoever you are. If you love us, we'll love you back.... Unity. Acceptance. Working for mutual benefit. Fuck conformity. Fuck greed. Fuck hate. Fuck racism. Fuck homophobia. Fuck sexism. Fuck narcissism.

It's only polite...

---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool and Mad Hatter)
