"Other" is a term used to refer to something that is distinct from or different than what has been described or considered previously. It can encompass a range of diverse or alternative options, perspectives, identities, or elements that may not fit into predefined categories or norms.
The Other or Constitutive Other is a key concept in continental philosophy; it opposes the Same. The Other refers, or attempts to refer, to that which is other than the initial concept being considered.

It is my belief that we stopped listening to each other, we did n’t respond or react. We got frustrated with each other and we forced individuals like Jonathan Butler to take immediate action, unusual steps to affect change.
