Initially, Sarah tried to smooth things over with Janice, explaining that they were just like any other couple and that they had every right to live in the neighborhood. However, Janice remained hostile, making snide remarks about their sexuality and implying that they were not welcome in the community.

Feeling frustrated and hurt, Sarah decided to take a different approach. She knew that confronting Janice directly would likely only make things worse, so she decided to reach out to the other neighbors instead. She explained the situation to each of them, asking if they could have a word with Janice and let her know that her comments were not acceptable.

They All Helped!

To Sarah’s surprise, all of the neighbors she spoke with were willing to help, and they each followed through on their promise to talk to Janice. They approached her in a calm and respectful manner, explaining that her behavior was hurtful and that it was not in line with the values of the community.

However, Janice did not take kindly to being confronted. She became defensive and lashed out, accusing Sarah of harassing her by sending everyone to talk to her. She made it clear that she did not approve of Sarah and her wife’s relationship and that she did not believe they belonged in the neighborhood.

This commenter posted, “Janice is a bigot. Nobody is under any obligation to keep their opinion of her bigotry to themselves. If she doesn’t want to be called on her bigotry, maybe she shouldn’t say bigoted things.”

Another person commented this opinion, “YEP. Community action at it’s finest. No one is being hateful or harassing, she’s just finally realizing how many people in her neighborhood don’t agree with her worldview and feels threatened by that, so she’s mad and throwing legalese around.”
