Emily has her Own World, by Persephone + the Bear
"I know this isn’t going to be a popular opinion, but I’m gay, and I don’t think there’s nearly as much discrimination as people claim. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve experienced discrimination. But it hasn’t been a huge factor in my life. I feel like a lot of people bring discrimination on themselves by getting in people’s faces too much. They like to say: ‘Accept me or else!’ They go around demanding respect as a member of a group, instead of earning respect as an individual. And that sort of behavior invites discrimination. I’ve never demanded respect because I was gay, and I haven’t experienced much discrimination when people find out that I am."
Has a point.

- Galileo Galilei and the moons of Jupiter
- Isaac Newton: the motion of objects and spectrum of light
- Charles Darwin and descent with modification via natural selection
- Nicola Tesla and the age of electricity
- Albert Einstein and spacetime
The world needs roughly a thousand more of these, so please get to work Mr. Kennedy. I love them so much.
