Charles Ingalls was a sexist, homophobic, knuckle dragging deplorable. Yet he had the capacity to care about other people. How could this be?
Straight , self sufficient white male, Non college educated. Worked with his hands in the sweat and dirt. Only had white friends. Did not support gay marriage. His wife was a stay at home mom. Christian, believed in the Lord thy God.. Didn't want a government hand out. Didn't whine that the government wasn't doing enough after a disaster. Still he was compassionate and gave to and helped his neighbor however he could
