well, in my opinion, anyone who is deliberately cruel to another does not value respect and deserves none in return. it may be our right to express our own opinions with words and or actions, but when our intent is to spread hate then we are in fact spreading hatred. i, myself, have no time for hatred of any kind, yet i voice many truths that appear as hatred.
on one hand, we can love and respect one another and on the other hand, we can hate and disrespect others.
this choice is, ultimately, our own.
