10: Discriminatory Beliefs   October 4th, 2019

High-res printable file - $3 a month on Patreon gets you access to all pages.

We have a new patron this month, JG Heithcock. Thanks for joining!

I've added a new tier to the Patreon. Now you can download the full-resolution pages in color, and the black and white line art, for $3 a month or more. You can print them out and color them and/or hang them up on your wall. It's easy to find the files for each page, because I've added links in the commentary. Sign up here. If you're already a patron, you can access this stuff by upgrading to the new tier.

If you'd like to order prints, I've added some of the pages to TeePublic. Check them out here. They're discounted until tomorrow. If you want to order a print of a page that isn't on there, you can let me know and I'll add it!

Now I'll bring attention to the comment policy, since this page may elicit some interesting discussion. There are rules for commenting and they may be stricter than what you're used to, so please read it before posting anything potentially provoking.

Lily: People say discrinimatory beliefs are inherently hateful, but I don't think that's true. Like, my friend Tyler doesn't believe in gay marriage, but he doesn't hate anyone, it's just what he was taught at his Christian school. And he believes it because he CARES about people and doesn't want anyone to have an eternity of suffering.
Simon: It doesn't really matter what their motivations are. That belief hurts LGBT people, so it can be considered a hateful ideology even if they don't actually hate anyone.
Lily: But that might give someone the impression that people DO hate them. And if people don't hate you then why would it help you to believe they do? Wouldn't it just isolate you more?
Simon: If someone disrespected a fundamental element of who you were, would you really care whether they hated you or not?
Lily: Yeah, I would. You don't respect my religion, and I don't want YOU to hate me.
(Simon and Lily look at each other)
Simon: I don't.
