The clearest example is the repeated use of the word “tolerate.” Students would write that we must not persecute homosexuals, prostitutes, mental patients, and others, that we must be “tolerant” of them. But one tolerates only those that one considers less than equal, morally inferior, and weak; those equal to oneself, one accepts and respects; one does not merely allow them to exist, one does not “tolerate” them.

Fuck tolerance. I want more. I want to be embraced as I am. And I don’t want it to be a big fucking “gimme cookies, I accept you!” thing. It should just be the way it is.
Why I hate the word “tolerance”.
acceptance > tolerance. always.
