  • LOL there is so much intolerance by ppl who claim to be tolerant I don't think that work can be used when talking about reality.

  • I agree with it.
    It is right to be tolerant of other peoples choices, but to be tolerant of other peoples hate is different. So a tolerant person should be tolerant of abuse of people because by nature they are tolerant?

  • I do agree. If someone is being intolerant, is it wrong for a tolerant person to have a problem with that? Not in my opinion.

  • I am usually tolerant. The only thing I have intolerance of is stupidity, And I mean choosing to be stupid of a subject. Like a person believeing what they are told by someone else without researching it for themselves. And no one ever said tolerance had to apply to everything.
