565. That's hilarious
You're decontextualizing the term and then saying, "See? It's not bigoted!" You entirely miss the point of my point. No one argues for the slavery of another person in a purely sterile way. There's no way to acknowledge a person as a human being--of the same and equal as the arguer of slavery--and then make them a slave. To argue for a lesser place for another human being ALWAYS strips them of their humanity and makes them DIFFERENT, something a human being can handle without losing any sleep at night. During the 1860's slaves were inhuman, they were cattle. Just like today we're supposed to be pedophiles and degenerates, simply because we don't love someone of the opposite gender. It is inexcusable back then to argue for the cattlefication of a human being; it's inexcusable to support the idea--in any way--that the LGBT community is nothing but pedophiles, sick, degenerate and disgusting people. "Pet issues" regulates our identity, our safety, our souls to that of tax rates, funding the arts, or what flag gets flown or if it's able to be burned or not.
