When Twitter user @polNewsNetwork1 posted a photo of a Muslim woman and a drag queen riding the subway next to each other on Wednesday, and proclaimed them as “the future that liberals want”, we’re pretty sure they weren’t expecting the response they received from the Internet.
It turns out that those unassuming travellers are exactly the future most people want.
Cultural diversity, freedom of self-expression, and co-existing happily with fellow citizens? That actually sounds wonderful, especially if we can do it without being secretly photographed.
The majority of the Twittersphere memed and one-lined the event into absolute oblivion, and the results were refreshingly hilarious.
