Intolerant

Enough with tolerance, I want to be intolerant.

I don’t want to tolerate those who would discriminate against me. I don’t want to tolerate those who would harm me and mine through word or deed. I don’t want to tolerate people who spend every waking moment trying to think of ways to hold us back, or, even worse, who are indifferent to the suffering they see around them. These people don’t deserve tolerance, they deserve to be actively opposed, and told they are wrong, and fought tooth and nail at every turn.

Because if they’re not opposed, they’ll run right over us, with not even a pretense of tolerance to smooth over the destruction they’ll leave behind.
