I read recently on Instagram where a young actress called an old actor "old fool" because the man condemned transgender. The man may be old, primitive and Orthodox but he is no fool. Elders talk based on past experiences and they try as much as possible to avoid situations they have not experienced before.
The first shot that came towards my goal, trust me, i could have sworn i saw a lion coming towards me instead of a football and so I fumbled it.
People will talk, no matter what you do so give them something worthwhile to talk about...
