What constitutes as "hate speech?" Please give examples.


There's slinging inappropriate and offensive racial slurs that I will not type on here. However, I find that some people get all riled up when someone simply disagrees with them, or offers a different point of view, and calls it "hate speech." Suppose someone regards the issue of transgender bathrooms in public places a bad idea. They have their own perspective and don't feel comfortable. Why would that be considered hate speech if no insults have been issued? Are people that sensitive? Perhaps we should create a "Hurt Feelings" report for those to fill out when they file a complaint.
