I don't know how many times I've uttered those words during this election season (though more so when Perry and Santorum were still campaigning, because my uterus was screaming in unison with the rest of me). But really, as a bleeding-heart liberal who believes in education, health care, equity and dignity for all, how can I be the one spewing the hate? As a person who marched in SlutWalk 2011, stood by my homosexual honey's side at the Capitol for twelve hours in support of civil unions and is preparing to get Silence = Death tattooed on her arm, how can I be the one projecting verbal prejudice?
The answer is, I don't know. But my own intolerance has to stop.
