Intolerance has an implied meaning for intolerance of XYZ.

It's like asking if you can go to the bathroom without going to the room we call the bathroom. you can go to the bathroom without going to the bathroom because bathroom=bathroom;false.

People often dismiss (what they perceive as) intolerance by shouting "bigot" when instead they should attack the (allegedly) baselessness of the intolerance in question.

So true, we have every reason to tolerate the bigot, for to be intolerant towards them is to assume that they cannot learn or change. This is not to condone their actions, still tell them what you think.
