Language that degrades others, even unintentionally, is violence. Misogyny and ableism are baked into English, so we must be careful. Avoiding these expressions is a small way to be kind to others but it also frees your mind from a fettered way of thinking.


There's racism in the mix too. There's probably nationalism and religious ideas, too. All of the -ism's do the same thing: othering someone who's just trying to live their life.
