Athena / by Susannah Kay

"Some people understand immediately and just naturally support it, while others have a really hard time. The human condition has been taught for so long to think negatively toward certain people, whether it's their religion, color of their skin, their sex, or their gender. So, it's learning how to undo those necessary fears, and we have a long way to go."
