After reading the Dan & Me and the Brene Brown Gun Rights articles, what are your general thoughts? How can you, personally, learn about other people’s perspectives (particularly in areas you know you will disagree), and still be open to learning?

The world has many people who have different characters and behaviours because they are raised differently. Sexually, people have different feelings and how they handle their sexual life; this is witnessed from the article, Dan and Me. In this article, it is seen that people like to criticize lesbians, gays and bisexual mostly (Windmeyer 1). These people have been disrespected and discriminated making them feel less important in society. However, that should not be how people need to learn to give others freedom and accept that we are all not the same. In the article Dan and Me, it is clear how the LGBT are unfairly treated; hence made it necessary to form an organization that can support them and make them feel free to practice their sexual life without discrimination (Windmeyer 1). Everyone should learn to accept that it is impossible to have the same lifestyle since people are different.
People are raised differently according to families, and each family has their code of handling matters. Some families are strict with their children, while others are not that strict; they allow their children to watch and access adult materials (Brene 1). Parents always determine the family’s rules and how the children will grow under those rules to get the best out of them. Children born and raised in hunting families have different gun restrictions, which are stated according to the father (Brene 1). Gun ownership is a critical aspect in many families, and it gives people the virtue of self-control. Authority has been in control for many years, and it is always needed for people to live well in society. However, many people use false dichotomies and lies during difficult emotional stress in life. This has affected society massively and made people live in a state of distrust among them.
