Boundaries

Everyone has boundaries: areas you can’t or shouldn’t get to. They’re personal. If you do happen to push too far into these areas damage is likely, sometimes irreparable damage. It could just be damage to a relationship. It could be personal damage. Why not be sensitive to the potential, or at least likely, boundaries of others?
When someone makes a gay joke on television how do you think it makes the kid at home with two dads feel? More importantly, what kind of damage does it do? Might that damage show up later, much more dramatically? Maybe he will violate your boundaries. It’s prudent to be a tolerant society (within reason).
It takes a little effort to be careful, but it’s worth it.
