Directed at no one and apropos of nothing, let’s take a minute out of our day to look at the word bigot:
Main Entry: 1big·ot
Inflected Form(s): -s
Etymology: Middle French, bigot, hypocrite, from Old French bigot Norman
1 obsolete : HYPOCRITE; especially : a superstitious religious hypocrite
2 : one obstinately and irrationally, often intolerantly, devoted to his own church, party, belief, or opinion
You’ll notice the definition lacks any mention of race or ethnicity. Granted, you’ll find other definitions that include them, but they’re being used as examples. I’ve been working my ass off today and haven’t had any time for distractions, which always ends up with me thinking about random shit like this. It’s only February 2nd, but I’m gonna go ahead and say that knowing exactly what this word means is going to be more important than usual this year.
