The word "Bigot" is not in my vocabulary! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Just because they're wrong doesn't mean that I try to insult them. But that's the individuals, the institutions are merely being conservative. They want more proof or convincing. Some, like CAMH in Toronto are really stuck. But most are coming around. No longer do we hear stories of commitments and the legalized torture being masked as "Therapy" . When I was young, one had to be careful what you said and who you said it to. You could wind up in a institution with no way out.

Bigots do exist .They are people who refuse to acknowledge or accept any proofs you may offer because of their ideology and /or beliefs and continue through willful ignorance to discriminate,hate and perpetrate violence to other human beings who disagree or take issue with their positions. A person can believe whatever they want but once they commence in violating the rights of others or doing willful harm to them because of their opinions they become bigots.
