"I hate Muslims". I really hate it down to my gut when someone is so racist. Terrorists are bad, yes. But not every Muslim is a terrorist! I've not dated guys or been friends with certain people because they said ignorant, racist shit like that.
I literally blush and sheepishly smile when a character does something embarrassing. I feel their embarrassment. So that forces me to also close the book and blush. And blush. Till my red cheeks turn back to normal!
