Guys, I do not have English as my first language obviously
and not being an academic and not into Political Correctness
the word bigot is something I would need to look up.
bigot means according to the FreeDictionary
One who is strongly partial to one’s own group, religion, race,
or politics and is intolerant of those who differ.
a person who is intolerant of any ideas other than his or her own,
esp on religion, politics, or race
bigot - a prejudiced person who is intolerant of any opinions differing from his own
Oh so that is what the word refers to.
That is why Babies need to be socialized into the culture
that their parents wants the baby to belong to?
Here is my very biased example. Rebecca Watson joking about
how utterly bad science that Evolutionary Psychology produce.
Everybody happy to ridicule a whole diverse group of scientists
instead of realizing one can not condemn all of them based on
selected bad apples?
Should I see her as very bigot then? Or that she has a political agenda
to be partial and to be intolerant to other views than her own group?

One can see PC as a literal usage or implementation of bigot practice?
What would a Humanist way be? To do reliable research on what it is
to be a Human. Jonathan Haidt try to do that. One don’t have to agree
with every nuance in his take on the result and if one see much flaw
in his research method then why not do better research and to present
the result from that one. I hope Haidt would welcome such competition.
To just dismiss him like some Politically Correct supporters do is to be bigot
in my biased view.
I where a strong supporter of Political Correctness from say 1955 up to 1975
when I noticed them went deep into bigot ideas about science being bad?
What we need is good reliable science not to dismiss all science as bad.
