WELCOME TO HUGTOWN, that anger IS unfair and unjustified, though. Hate Romney if you want, but don't take it out on people who happen to be in the same political party. we don't all agree with him and lumping us all together into a group of anti-gays and such is what's causing this problem. It's like hating all muslims because of 9/11. It's incredibly insulting.

It’s nowhere near as bad as hating Muslims because of 9/11 because that’s hating an entire religious group based on the actions of a few awful people, and that’s just the quickest possible explanation why

You need to take a step back a bit and examine how bad this “prejudice” actually is

You’re not going to be demeaned or oppressed or hurt for your opinions so don’t even begin to put your struggles on that level.

Mitt Romney is anti-gay, yes, and he’s anti-a-lot-of-things too! A lot of the Republican party is. And it’s not fair to assume that every single Republican is a terrible person. I’ve said that much.

BUT the Republican party has caused a lot of people a lot of really, really awful problems and I must reiterate; it’s not good to hate others and it’s especially not good to hate a whole group of people. But sometimes people are people and act on that anger. They speak up and they say mean things because they’re tired of being treated poorly. That’s human nature and if you have it within you to not give into that urge, then good for you! If you do give into that urge, it’s fair.

But you’re PROBABLY not going to be oppressed for your opinion. You’re PROBABLY not going to be discriminated against to the point where it affects your daily life. You’re PROBABLY not going to be hurt for it. This isn’t about race or religion or sexuality, it’s about politics. At the very worst people will be mean and angry. That’s not a good thing but it could be far, far worse.

I’m sorry if this is a lengthy and heated response, but your comparison at the end there bothers me. 

EDIT because I was tired and didn’t proofread this at all and I forgot to make a vital point: It’s highly important that you don’t group people in with each other and assume that everyone shares the same opinion. Mitt Romney being an enormous wad doesn’t make every Republican ever an enormous wad THE END
