lib·er·al Pronunciation Key (lbr-l, lbrl)
- Not limited to or by established, traditional, orthodox, or authoritarian attitudes, views, or dogmas; free from bigotry.
- Favoring proposals for reform, open to new ideas for progress, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded.
Stop using this word that stands for tollerance and good as a slur against people. Stop using it as a blanket word for anyone who isn't right wing. Start using it correctly.
I say to you all: Claim this word back.
Use it correctly, post this in your journal (if you have one), correct people who use it without thinking. Make a damn stand. This is your language as well. Language is about progress, it evolves, don't let that evolution be one of hate.
