If God didn’t like Breeders: GLBTQ Empathy.

Empathy is what it’s all about. Not sympathy—empathy is the ability to actually see yourself in another’s shoes‚ whether you’re a Republican visualizing a Democrat, a cool kid visualizing the class nerd, straight visualizing gay…or vica versa. Empathy is what defines our humanity.

This video allows us to imagine our own world, flipped: where breeders are the discriminated-against, made-fun-of, marginalized minority. It’s a fascinating, illuminating, enlightening exercise and approach—even kinda fun.

With thanks for the tip to Cris. Video:
