Wisdom In The Form Of Twitter Screenshots

We’ve seen strong public reactions to the recent deaths of celebrities, and although there are limits to how intensely we should mourn the passing of strangers we can still appreciate their contributions.

In a positive way, David Bowie, George Michael and Prince contributed to the ways we view gender and masculinity.  Here are a few Twitter posts reminding us of something which shouldn’t go on the back burner.  Many young people have been forbidden to think of themselves as individuals worthy of respect.  Depending on where they live or whom they associate with, they may receive no support. The messages they get from pop culture can be a safety net.

These screenshots were shared on Buzzfeed’s site.  Click the images to enlarge them.
