I think the important thing to remember kids, is if you don’t want to offend anyone, never express any kind of opinion anywhere it might be opposed.
Even if you do it respectfully, intelligently, or with humor.
Or — you can not worry so much about what other people think and simply move on. That works, too.
If people want to like you and look beyond your differences, they will. And if they don’t, they won’t.
You can’t simply turn the “tolerance button” on for other people. They have to do it themselves.
