I ask this because it's happened to me quite a bit. For example back when I used the word "trannies" people assumed I was a bigot even though i had no idea it was a slur. Back when I had zero understanding of trans people I said ''If you have a penis you aren't a girl" because I wasn't being a bigot I just didn't know that for some people gender was in the mind and that it wasn't a physical thing.
I remember a few other times people assumed that I hated women and saw them as encubaters just because I was pro-life and assumed that I thought rape victims had to give birth to a baby baby even though I never did. I've had people tell me I was insane just because I was a Republican and I think that part of this problem is that a lot of people seem to forget that you are a human and think you are a stereotype. Or so it feels like that.
I guess what I am trying to say is that why do are a lot of people so quick to call bigotry rather than educated someone who is ignorant and why are a lot of grown men and woman so quick to stereotype others who are different from them even though their too old to stereotype everyone?
The reason I wanna be a better person and understand things better is because I wanna grow as a person and I wanna be the best person that I can be. I made a few mistakes here and there and learned from them. Yes I am misguided in some areas but I'm getting better at this with time. This is why I don't stereotype people, I will not judge them unless I know them a little better (though sometimes I mess up on this) and I won't assume someone is a bigot just because they don't understand certain people. Sometimes they just need to be educated.
By the way a grown adult has stereotyped you tell me your story and tell me how you dealt with it and took anything away from it.
