A Florida man, who's now 21, was sentenced to 24 years in prison for killing a mother with her 1-year old daughter while street racing illegaly. But just recently, a video in TikTok sparked the curiousity of users, but to many's surprise, some users defended the criminal, just because he is "handsome."

If the criminal were to be, what society perceived as "ugly," surely, the reactions would have been different.

And this case is a proof of one of the horrid flaws of society. Those who look good in the outside are seen as the "good guys," while those who aren't are the opposite.

Stereotyping. We see people based on what we were used to. For example, those who are covered in tattoos are criminals, those who support other country's products are not patriots, or even those who fail at school do not have a future ahead of them.

But this should not be our way of thinking! In our present world, where all our differences infuse, we should learn how to finally break stereotyping.

If before, you are considered part of society only if you live and act like the rest of its members, at present times, we should try to adjust our mindsets, and think that in our diverse and fast-changing world, people should be who they want to be without being determined by others' opinions.

"No labels attached."

Be a doctor who doesn't wear a lab gown! Be a successful person even with low grades! Be someone who can work even those meant for their opposite sex! Be a man who loves a man, or a woman who loves a woman! Be whoever you want to be, and let it be the new norm.

This petition may come a long way before turning into a more legal matter, but what we need first is the cooperation from all of us, and the desire to live in a better and more respecting society.
