#8 - Summary of Research
When I started this blog, I knew some of what was to be expected with my topic. People will point, stare, laugh, judge, and stereotype - but it is important to be ahead of them. For those who are discriminated because of an "offbeat" hairstyle, noticeable tattoo, or crazy piercings that are everywhere but your ears, they are not in the wrong. It is time that society moves past the stigma that tattoos are for criminals and piercings are for punks; if the thoughts and ideas of others are stuck in the past, progress in any way, shape or form cannot be made! Progress includes but is not limited to being humane. Treating others who appear to look different in a negative way does not say something about them, it says something about YOU. All in all, it is important that the prejudice, derogatory and primitive thoughts of the past be left there; what others choose to do to express themselves is their business, not yours. Stop discrimination today.
