"Just live your life, other people’s opinions don’t matter"
Um… except they do
I mean you shouldn’t let them keep you from living, but the way other people see you affects the way you get treated on a daily basis. Because some of those people have power over you. Some of these people are your bosses, teachers, advisors, police officers etc.
So yeah, other people’s opinions do matter
And that’s why we need to actively work at getting rid of racism, sexism, gender roles, etc.
