There are 7.7 billion people on Earth. All of these people – every single one of them – have beliefs that conflict with yours. All of them. Recognize you have different beliefs and opinions and preferences from everyone else, even people with whom you have many shared beliefs. Recognize that they have the same right to hold beliefs that conflict with yours, as well as the right to express them. There’s no harm to you when other people express their opinions. It’s only when one wishes to impose their beliefs on others should someone take offense, or, in the worst of cases, outrage. Try not to be offended by ideas expressed by others that don’t conform with your own.
