On Tolerance

I am very tolerant of folks that have different opinions than I do as along as their opinions do not include rhetorically stomping on people that are less wealthy or a different color or happen to love people that are of the same sex.

I do not tolerate sexism, racism, homophobia(we need a better word for that because they are NOT afraid) and a lot of other stuff that I consider hateful because well I consider it hateful. I have kicked people out of my house for dropping n-bombs in a context that showed they seriously thought that people with more melanin in their skin were inferior.

I don't think that makes me intolerant.

If you do then I think you have redefined the word.

This little jabber was inspired by this.

Not moderated but I do delete spam and I would rather that people not act like assholes.
