Anybody who has played multiplayer games online with the voice chat function has heard someone say something homophobic, sexist, racist, transphobic or otherwise laden in ignorance and bigotry.

Most often we assume it's some 12-year-old just using their new favorite words. Very rarely is there any pushback in the moment.

According to The Daily Dot, unfortunately, the conversation between the young man and his friend did not go constructively and both kids were "pissed off" by the end.

But they still had hope.

"It's not that difficult to explain these things to kids. A lot of younger kids, after you explain these things to them, are way more polite and will follow pronouns more than older adults."
