The full moon was high in the sky as the werewolf pack stalked towards me, their eyes blazing with betrayal.
"Hey, c'mon... It's not that big a deal," I asserted.
The Alpha stood, growl-whining at me, "You only... pretended... to throw.. the ball!"
"So how can I make it up to you?"
"Throw!" the Alpha barked, the rest of the pack echoing.
I pulled back my arm and hefted hard - they bolted after nothing, again.
Risky, but hilarious.

If we *don't* let them face the backlash for their words and actions we're prioritizing comfort of the privileged over the discomfort of the marginalized. We trade accountability for continued oppression.
When someone expresses racism, xenophobia, or authoritarianism in public, they SHOULD face backlash. We do not need sympathy for those facing such backlash -- that's things working as they should! Reserve your sympathy for racism's millions & millions of victims.
