Individuals often refer to the LGBTQ community as “preference.” As a person of color, preference is not an alternative. Using ancient language demonstrates how out of touch this candidate for this judgeship is. Many necessitate education on sexual orientation. One may differ, but that is ok. Since one needs not to judge others’ destiny, one should implement this rule, love your neighbor, and respect who they are. All of us have someone in our family, who is a part of the LGBTQ community. They are in every aspect of professional life. “Judge Amy Coney Barrett, the president’s Supreme Court nominee, apologized on Tuesday for using the widely criticized term “sexual preference” to refer to LGBTQ Americans’ sexual orientations.” If someone mislabelled you, how would you respond or feel about that person?
