I was just called a bigot on Buzzfeed. It was in regard to an article on Raven-Symone rolling her eyes on some comment Candace Cameron-Bure gave on ABC’s The View. The topic was on a bakery in Oregon denying to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple and the couple calling out the bakery on the Internet.
I basically just said in my original comment that the show had gone down the toilet since it first began, and that ABC should do everyone a favor and cancel it. This is an opinion that many people other than me share, so I left it there. Hours later, I am alerted that there were comments, and I go to find that I am branded a bigot. Naturally, I had to defend myself. Especially since I was labeled as anti-gay marriage (see a previous post on that subject).
The definition of a bigot is “someone who is strongly partial to one’s own group, religion, race, or politics and is intolerant of those whose opinions differ” (The Free Dictionary). I don’t know if I am a bigot when it comes to Candace Cameron Bure’s opinions, but I definitely feel a strong sense of intolerance towards people who do not believe in equality for the LGBTQ community.
Okay, I am done talking now.
