Do they include hating teh gays? Is it necessary to be conversant in the top 10 gay slurs in order to claim to be a conservative? Must you be able to use the term "queer", "homo", and "faggot" in while wishing your mother a Merry Christmas in order to lay claim to being a conservative?
No it is not required.
Now let me ask you this. Do you feel that your right to not hear the words
that you do not like trumps my right to say the words that I like to use?
IMO - no. But then my insistence on treating gay people with some measure of human dignity and respect has resulted in my being called both PC and leftist more than once especially on here. I see nothing wrong with ridiculing behavior - but the person is not the behavior.
And some people ignore other parts of their personality for the trait or behavior that is their personal bugbear.

I admit I didn't. But I sure as hell ain't sorry and I sure as hell will do it again. If people think they're going just let me swallow whatever bullshit they have to say about people like me because I'm on their side politically? You must be kidding. Libs are one thing, but I WILL beat harder, meaner and dirtier on someone that I think should KNOW BETTER.
"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. To be your own man is hard business. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." Rudyard Kipling - (1865-1936)
