I don't like the feeling I get when someone says something bigoted, even if their words or attitude don't affect me directly. It's like no one's in there, like I am talking to a dangerously malfunctioning machine, an empty shell, or like I am confronted by one of the laws of physics and only my abilities to reason as a human being could save me and my fellow humans from its effects, from evil, madness, or cruelty. I guess the feeling could work both ways, but for different reasons.
