Being Culturally Appropriate in Macedonia
"They have 'gay day' here in Macedonia, so I asked a colleague what 'gay day' meant. He told me, 'it's a day where we bully people who are gay.' When I hear people say ignorant comments like this, I have to understand it is coming from a different society and a different culture. Without imposing my 'American views', I need to figure out how to say something culturally appropriate to show this is not right."
