Ever since I was a small child, my parents taught me that blurting things out was wrong. They taught me to hold my tongue and think before I speak. They taught me not to say mean things about people. They taught me not to make fun of people, especially disabled people. They taught me that what is spewed from the mouth, comes from the heart.

One of the first thing most people teach their children from the time they can talk is to think before you speak.

Why is it that the #1 thing people say when asked why they support Trump is, “he speaks his mind”?

Since when is “speaking your mind” a good thing? Especially when it is offending others, insulting others, degrading others, being a bully to others, being prejudice and sexist and just outright mean.

Since when it that a good thing?
