OPD: Other People’s Drama

This story's gonna grab people. It's about this guy,
he's crazy about this girl, but he likes to wear dresses.

I may not seem like the most tolerant person in the world, but that’s a function of the context in which this communication takes place. Outside of this context, I am in complete agreement with Alexander Pope’s observation that whatever is, is right, and you can’t get any more tolerant than that. 

What can be wrong in a dream? How could wrongness even be possible? Sure, there’s misalignment and wrong-knowing and wrong-action and that sort of thing, but they’re perfectly right to be wrong. Just because we adopt a context in which something is wrong doesn’t make it universally or inherently or intrinsically wrong. Nothing is wrong in and of itself, independent of context.
