I’d seriously like someone to explain to me why that “tolerance” BS only goes ONE way.

So I hate faggots! TOLERATE it, beyotch. I’m not gonna change. I was born that way.

Hate should never be tolerated.

You were born with an opinion? Unless you have video with your first words being "fuckin' faggot", shut up.

Most people won't have a problem with you having those "opinions", you just shouldn't in any way act on them.

Intolerance towards intolerance is a self-defense mechanism of modern pluralist democratic societies, and even though it doesn't make any logical sense on paper, it works.

Things is, he is indeed allowed to have this opinion. However, expressing it in a way that would promote violence against the group his hate is directed at is not covered by freedom of opinion.

Come out of the closet, Tick. It will get better.

So us hating bigots is an infringement on their freedom of speech.

But bigots hating gays is not an infringement on the gay people's freedom of speech?

Ok, I hate people like you. Tolerate it, beyotch. I'm not gonna change. I was born that way. See how that works.

You might not change, but you could. That's part of the reason your situation isn't comparable to tolerance towards "faggots", as you so eloquently put it.

I will borrow a quote from Karl Popper. Even though I am fairly certain that you don't have the intellectual sophistication to understand it.

"Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them. — In this formulation, I do not imply, for instance, that we should always suppress the utterance of intolerant philosophies; as long as we can counter them by rational argument and keep them in check by public opinion, suppression would certainly be unwise. But we should claim the right to suppress them if necessary even by force; for it may easily turn out that they are not prepared to meet us on the level of rational argument, but begin by denouncing all argument; they may forbid their followers to listen to rational argument, because it is deceptive, and teach them to answer arguments by the use of their fists or pistols. We should therefore claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant. We should claim that any movement preaching intolerance places itself outside the law, and we should consider incitement to intolerance and persecution as criminal, in the same way as we should consider incitement to murder, or to kidnapping, or to the revival of the slave trade, as criminal. "

Jesus-fuckin'-christ; suck a dick already.

Sure thing. You're perfectly free to hold that view and even blather it in public.

Just like the rest of us are free to call you out as the bigot you are.

Your ilk IS being tolerated, as evidenced by the fact that no one is going around killing you disgusting people for your repulsive views.

Tolerating you just means we have to allow you to exist, not that we need to show you any respect or pay any heed to your shitty opinions.

10/18/2012 4:46:30 AM


You can hate whoever you like for whatever reason you like, I will never stop you. However, if you act out that hate I will be on your ass with a vengeance. Keep your bigotry contained and you'll be the only one who suffers for it.

"Waaaah! They're not tolerating my intolerance!"

Maybe you should just come out of the closet already.

And yet another data point that helps prove that human garbage, does indeed exist.

So basically you're pissed off that people frown on you acting like a barbarian? Poor you.

"I’d seriously like someone to explain to me why that “tolerance” BS only goes ONE way. "

Ok, I'll explain it.

Your post is BS. Your intolerance only goes ONE way. You are intolerant to others but you whine and cry when your intolerance is pointed out.

10/18/2012 5:29:57 AM


Okay, you can hate whoever you want. You can announce your hate whenever and to whomever you want. I will uphold your rights to do so.

However, when you are talking about imposing laws that needlessly restrict other people's freedoms, THEN you've got some explaining to do. "I hate faggots" is no justification for such laws. Lies about how all gay people are child rapists are no justification. Thumping the bible is no justification either. And if your lot has anything else on its side, you've never been able to demonstrate it.

So go ahead Nervous Tick. Scream your hate all you wish, or just sit and stew in it. It makes no difference either way, your side is still losing.

You know what, NT, you're right. You absolutely have the right to hate people, for any reason, and I should (and do) tolerate your hatred. Part of the cost of living in a society free from "thought-crime" is that people will have thoughts and hold opinions that I find detestable, hateful even.

But hating someone isn't the same thing as acting on that hatred. I don't need to tolerate you harassing someone, or oppressing them, or bullying, beating, discriminating or persecuting them. That isn't part of your right to an opinion, your "right to hate", that is a actual physical and mental harm to individuals.

To quote Zechariah Chafee, “Your right to swing your arms ends just where the other man’s nose begins.”

10/18/2012 6:27:59 AM

I will tolerate your hate. But I can still call you a fucking idiot.

10/18/2012 6:41:59 AM


I'll tolerate you so long as you keep your bigotry out of politics and don't bother gay people. If you want to be a hater and talk about how much you hate gays then go right ahead. However, you also have to tolerate my absolute disgust of you and your hatred.

"I’m not gonna change. I was born that way."

...Nervous Tit said in a sterotypically 'Drama Queen'-esque way, whilst climbing into his closet, wearing leather chaps & fabulously flinging a pink feather boa round his neck, and carrying artworks by Tom of Finland.

Classic example of Closet Case Syndrome. Proof?:


He couldn't have telegraphed it more, if he'd also had a neon sign over his head, with rainbow flags, and speakers blaring out 'I Am What I Am' by Gloria Gaynor. >:D

Ok, fine. I accept that you are allowed to have that opinion. However, you are not allowed to use it to deny others their rights, just as I would be wrong to deny you your rights based on your beliefs.

The Crimson Ghost

You're entitled to hate whomever you want; & to say it. Just be prepared for the backlash.

The fact that you typed "beyotch" marks you as an immature idiot not even worthy of acknowledgement.
