bigot : Gay & Black Glossary
Someone who likes persecuting groups of people such as gays, blacks or Jews. He
collects stereotypes to justify his persecution. He also seeks out the worst
behaviour of the worst behaved of each group and claims it represents typical
behaviour. He is not above making up hate stories. A bigot is often a homophobe as well. Bigots are often religious fundamentalists. A bigot
is someone with such low self esteem, the only thing he can think of to feel good
about himself is that he has white skin, was born heterosexual, or was permitted to
join some Christian sect. Further, his self worth depends to pushing others down.
"It has always been a mystery to me how men can feel themselves honoured by
the humiliation of their fellow beings."
