How do you feel about people you deem "different"?

The Myth Of the "Other"

"Otherness” is a constructed hierarchy that categorizes humans as "superior" and "inferior" based upon gender, race, ethnicity, faith, mental and physical ability, and more.

Otherness seeps into our world during childhood. We are taught by "Us vs Them" rhetoric, bigoted "jokes", and fear-mongering tactics used by politicians, pundits, religious leaders, tastemakers and often our parents, teachers and peers.

Why must we reject this myth?

Othering is at the root of white supremacy, sexism, ableism, transphobia, fatphobia, xenophobia and all prejudiced antagonism.

Othering is leveraged to sway public opinion into supporting war, genocide, enslavement, exploitation, theft and disenfranchisement.

It is used by ruling classes to divide people, expand powers and amass wealth.

It perpetuates fear-based world-views, scarcity-mindsets and limiting beliefs.
