I believe that so called, "hate speech," while often rude and annoying, is a form of free speech and should be protected just as any other speech is. Pretty straight forward.

Definition:

Hate Speech: Speech that offends but does not call to violent action, nor is easily classified as illegal. (like yelling "FIRE" in a crowded place)

Free Speech: Anything that is currently legal under general rule and law. Including, "micro aggression," "mis-gendering," and "Nazi rhetoric."
