I am really enthusiastic about this article. Not only is it clever and light-hearted, it really speaks to the damage done by the Golden Rule: when we act based on pre-conceived notions of how others should feel, rather than how they actually do.

It could potentially reduce the need for frustrating conversations such as:

--I didn't mean to make you feel X, why do you feel X? (in the article itself)
--Intent isn't magic, or: consider the intent but acknowledge the impact
--If I don't treat everyone exactly the same, isn't that bad?
--If I see people as different, doesn't that mean I won't respect them all the same?
