You’re scared. I know. You’re afraid if your friends find out they won’t accept you. You’re afraid to be called derogatory names, that your very character will be judged, and that you’ll never escape the labels.

Conservative ideals are automatically labeled as racist, sexist, homophobic, and bigoted without a second thought.
