it’s science. there are at least five notable vestigial organs in the human body to date. of which the heart is not one. the heart is not the coiled tailbone, incapable of grasping branches or the wisdom teeth, biting down on secrets.

that means that if a trans being walks into the bathroom you’re in, you may feel the wisdom of their heart. if you hold a door for a Muslim neighbor, you may sense her life’s story. if an immigrant sits next to you in school, you may learn what he’s passionate about.
we humans are wired for compassion. show the beauty you were given.
