    express the depth of the contempt I feel toward you at this point. Why should anyone care what your ick factor is? Do you think people should live their lives based on what might be someone else's ick factor? It appears the reason you have a hard time with the term bigot is that you are one.

    •  Did I pass out, or something? Because I do not (0+ / 0-)

      remember asking your opinion.

      This is exactly what I was saying in my original post. I wrote something that you and others disagree with, and since I do not accept 100% the viewpoint that you and others espouse (no pun intended), I am the recipient of your contempt and scorn. I guess the fact that people can have differing opinions doesn't enter into your calculus. Received Wisdom!

      Seems to me you find it easier and more satisfying to yell "Bigot! I despise you! My way is the right and only way!" than to consider, even for a moment, that my background is entirely different from yours, so chances are I won't agree with you on a lot of issues. I expressed my ick factor by way of explanation. Accept it or don't; I don't care. But you do need to accept that a lot of people share my opinion and have legitimate reasons for doing so. If we don't happen to agree with you on this, or any other issue, such is life.

        on this site.  When you express opinions with which most kossacks strongly disagree, you WILL be vocally challenged and that is something you know perfectly well ahead of time.  You may have a right to your opinion, but certainly you have no right to express it here unchallenged.

        on the Internet learn to live with people responding regardless of you inviting or not. I don't give a flying fuck if you agree with me or not this isn't about your sensitivities it is about human rights.
