to mean "accepting" very stupid?
Honestly, that is just dumb.
They're not the same. I mean I can't stand when people say "tolerant" to mean "accepting" like really?

Well, what do YOU think "tolerant" means?

Tolerant means to agree to deal with something. It doesn't mean you like it. Like you can tolerate Mexicans living with you. Doesn't mean you love being around them.

Doesn't mean you won't find a way to screw them over. As opposed to accepting them.

Pardon me, I should have said "deal" with a quote, as I love Mexicans. I'm just saying that's what tolerant people feel.

People get confused with the words tolerate, accept and support. The words are pretty straight forward in what they mean.

Tolerant means to agree to deal with something. It doesn't mean you like it. Like you can tolerate Mexicans living with you. Doesn't mean you love being around them.

Other than the fact that tolerance has meant to be accepting since its first use, your use is the same as accepting. You're accepting the fact that people are different. You are accepting other people's lifestyles, despite your personal opinion on the matter.

Tolerance doesn't mean loving difference. But if you love difference, a fortiori you are tolerant of differences. Which is why we say tolerance is the acceptance of other people's differences.

I'd also point out that I am lactose tolerant.

Is that not the point? Those that want you to be tolerant, don't care if you love or hate them, they just want you to leave them alone and not harm or discriminate. If you want to go into your living room every night and mutter hateful things to yourself (one of my favorite past times), that is fine.

Accepting something doesn't mean you have to like it either. I'm getting old and I have to accept that.
