ignore them! you have to pick and choose your battles
Brylynn Smith (She/Her)
01:04:21
I feel like I'd say "Yes, that what my shirt implies" Then safely walk away
Brylynn Smith (She/Her)
01:04:29
*that's
Alana Dillette (she/her)
01:04:40
Yeah… honestly, my gut reaction is not to engage
Leanna Mae Dumenden (she/her)
01:05:33
they've obviously picked their side and it's not worth to fight with a rando :(
Brylynn Smith (She/Her)

01:05:57
They're already convinced in this scenario, so the discussion would just get heated
Leanna Mae Dumenden (she/her)

Brylynn Smith (She/Her)

Ask where their perspectives came from and try to talk it out

Thats genius!
Sam Williams (She/her)

I love that, such good thinking
Bianca Jordan (she/her)
01:10:17
really great way to approach it!
Alana Dillette (she/her)
01:10:33
I love that you all started with sharing pronouns as well - it sets the tone for others
Jason Lum
01:11:18
About misgendering, I usually just use they/them as a default if I’m not certain about a person’s pronouns.
Leanna Mae Dumenden (she/her)
01:11:44
^ good practice
Kayla Taliaferro (She/Her)
01:12:00
^^
Alana Dillette (she/her)
01:12:35
Yes! I try to do that as well Jason. Also, Zoom makes it so easy you can just use the persons name.
Jason Lum
01:13:48
I agree Dr. D! Using someone’s name is a good way to avoid misgendering them or just getting comfortable asking what their pronouns are in a non-confrontational way?
Jason Lum
01:14:03
. not ? lol
Kayla Taliaferro (She/Her)
01:14:32

Sam Williams (She/her)

I commit to reading one article a week on a current struggle faced by a marginalized group, and how to be an ally to the particular group
Kayla Taliaferro (She/Her)
01:15:11
Good point dr d!
Maria Crilly (she/her)
01:15:17
I commit to try and educate the people around me rather than not reacting or reacting with anger
Brianna Boling (She/Her)

“I commit to speaking up for those who have been silenced.”
Alondra Hernandez (she/her/hers)
01:15:28
I commit to dedicating thirty minutes to an hour a week to research marginalized groups in out community
Alana Dillette (she/her)
01:16:17
An idea for NSMH - to share once a week or month, a highlight of a group doing work on a particular oppressed group via your social media.
Jordan McCray
