Only bigots believe prejudice is universal

I grew up in a household where we were basically allowed to develop our own opinions about prejudice. I’ve never been a racist. My prejudice of choice was against gay men. Something that I’m still ashamed of having felt, even though I’ve since let that go. When I became an adult, I realized how foolish prejudice in any form is, regardless of the excuse. Not saying that I’m anything special, or that I love or trust everyone, but I judge people based on their character rather than race, gender, income, etc. And, yes, stereotypes are prejudice. When people say that everyone fits in a particular category, then they’re only revealing something about themselves. Prejudice is Not Universal
