Why has it become normal to be intolerant of others viewpoints?
We have DEMANDED acceptance and equality for all. We have DEMANDED that everyone be respected and gets a voice. But when people speak out against the norms, we label it, racist, sexist, whatever and shut it down. Im not trying to provoke anything, i just am trying to figure out why, when we speak of a country of freedoms, freedom of speech is acceptable as long as it goes with societal norms. I understand some beliefs held by others are offensive and ignorant, but are they not guaranteed a voice as well?
