You know what I'm sick of? People who think "freedom of speech" means that if they say something bigoted, disgusting and factually incorrect, it means that nobody has the right to call them out on it.
We do, and we should. It's our own freedom of speech to let bigots know that they won't be tolerated any more than they're willing to tolerate others.
Look at this shit:bogleech.tumblr.com/image/3580…
"Slavery got work done." Jesus.
I could link to many more people who've said this sort of thing and worse, but the point of this journal isn't really just to call out a couple of assholes. What I'm really posting for is just to remind you that it is ALWAYS OKAY to fight back against this shit. When you see statements that are obviously prejudiced, you can and should REPORT THEM. Deviantart doesn't care and doesn't do anything about it, but it feels good! It is also your right to tell them exactly what you think of their ignorant views. Never feel like it's wrong to show the intolerant some intolerance of your own. When they cast the first stone, they deserve the avalanche.
