24. I am with you
I have been for the rights of every human being everywhere for many years now. I get queasy when someone shows a hateful side toward someone else just because of their gender, sexuality, race, religion and anything else that is just plain wrong.

Unfortunately, I have a hard time feeling sympathy for an individual's cause when they throw the same bigoted remarks in the face of others. Saying "let me guess, you are a white straight male" or "too bad that child wasn't a white blond girl" and many of those types of remarks shoots a person's argument down with me.

If a person is honestly for equal rights for everybody, they would try to refrain from calling out other nationalities, genders, sexuality and such. Yes, white males have pretty much had a monopoly on the power for quire some time. But truthfully, I'm not one of them. I am still a liberal and to see those comments all the time here at DU is disheartening also. It's Ok to bash men and white people here I guess, but it does show that when you do, you really aren't for equal rights, you seem to be more out for yourself. (Not you specifically, of course).
