say something nice on the internet day

When I officially “joined the internet” 5 years ago I was ignorant to racism, sexism, ageism, ableism, slut shaming and fat shaming. I’m ashamed to admit that at one point in the beginning I actually wrote “If you want us (white people) to listen, then you need to say it NICER.” Thank you to all the people, complete strangers, that did not allow my ignorance to stand. Thank you for those who challenged me nicely and those who challenged me not so nicely (I learned from you both). Thank you to those who took the time to explain, especially when I didn’t deserve it. Thank you for turning a privileged white girl into someone I can be proud of.
