In today's very politically correct society,should you have an opinion that disagrees with the standards of being politically correct or cliche,you're automatically labeled negative terms:
What are YOUR personal definitions of the following words:
Ex 1: Someone states that they dislike illegal immigrants and illegal immigrants need to be deported,they are automatically labeled as "racist"
Ex 2: Someone says they do not support same-sex marriage,they are automatically labeled as "homophobic"
Ex 3: Someone says that Hilary Clinton and Sarah Palin were not fit to be presidents,they are labeled as "sexist"
Ex 4: Someone says that illegal immigrants harm the economy more than having positive effects on the economy,they are labeled as "ignorant"
Say your definitions of the words listed above,and do those scenarios justify describing the people who have stated such opinions?

my definitions might be boring because I use the real definition of said words not someone else's made up definition and certainly not the media's definition. the media brainwashes enough people already.
racist- the belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherit superiority of a particular race.
homophobic- irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals.
sexist- prejudice or discrimination based on sex.
ignorant- lacking in knowledge or education; unenlightened.
ex 1. people are idiots to label someone racist for that. if you want to put an end to illegal immigration then crack down on employers hiring said illegals.
ex 2. it's not necessarily homophobic to be against same sex marriage but it's incredibly stupid.
ex 3. hilary clinton might be qualified although I think bill would be running things behind the scenes in that scenario and he's one of the reasons this country's as f***ed as it is. sarah palin's as dumb as a rock and unqualified for washing my underwear.
ex 4. I don't think immigrants harm the economy as much as some people in the media portray, corporate ceo's putting their money in offshore tax shelter's is far more harmful than poor immigrants trying to live day to day for the most part.3
