Whether it is the experience of People of Color, Women, or the Queer community, too many people refuse to believe stories from lives so different from our own. Why? We mistakenly believe that we see the world as it is, or understand how the world works. We don’t. We tell ourselves stories. Every new piece of information we get, every new story we encounter, we both compare to our existing narrative and weave it in, but that weaving is the problem.
