    It is interesting reading this after just leaving my three house class on theoretical perspectives of social justice studies. Today we talked about how the thought “Everyone has a right to their opinion” is a familiar misconception. Opinions are not useful or interesting, without informed knowledge and purposeful ‘grappling’ with the material.

    Despite this, “hearing someone out” is a social skill, and also promotes the creation of a space in which people, having felt heard, are more willing to hear out other views. Or at least sometimes! More than if that space doesn’t exist at least.
