perspective is everything
It took me like 16 tries to figure out what I was looking at.
The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”
"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.
The heart valve thing tho… No they havent “always done it that way.” Heart valve surgery has probably only been around a couple decades. Some dude had to stand up at one point and say, “you know, maybe leaches arent the answer to everything” so medicine could move forward.
