Except for that it's not discrimination to have a no-tolerance stance on bigotry. It's like saying that the Brits were intolerant of Nazis because they killed millions of people who didn't fit in with the Hitler guidelines. If only they'd open their minds and meet somewhere in the middle. Does that mean the Nazis would've only murdered 3 million jews?

Actually, it is. It's like giving a murderer the death penalty.

"You can have an opinion, as long as it agrees with mine!"

"It's not discrimination when I discriminate!"

This is a great example of an argument lacking nuance.

And then the follow up death penalty, lol. Such a poor comparison.

No, it isn't. It's like having laws against murder for the sake of keeping the peace and calling that discrimination. You can call anything discrimination if we all listen to your guidelines, because context apparently doesn't matter.

I doubt they mind at this point.

Bruh the Jews were behind the Holocaust. Hitler was their puppet.

Yet, it still hasn't been refuted.

You guys are saying that it's okay for YOU to discriminate, but not for others to do so. It's not rocket science. It's hypocrisy.

If someone doesn't want to associate with others based upon their gender or sexual orientation, that is their decision. It may not be a GOOD decision, but they have the right to make it. For you to say that they don't have that right is ridiculous.

The death penalty is not one individual's decision, it's based on several people's decisions following a due process. Comparing that to murder is stupid unless you can link up the due process of murder.

You don't choose your gender or sexual orientation, but you can choose to be prejudiced against them. False equivalency out the ass. The whole argument is just a wishy washy way to dismiss stances that you don't agree with.

Yup. let's kill people who kill people to show people that killing people is wrong. Can't go wrong with that logic.

And? You of all people should know that individuals have the right to be a dick. Doesn't make it right, but it's the truth.

Say you see two gay men kissing. They didn't choose to be males or to be gay. Well, I didn't choose to be offended by it. I didn't choose for it to gross me the fuck out. Wasn't my choice, so you can't bitch about me not wanting to see it.
