I am so very, very done with the overuse of the word.
Every time I turn around, people are applying the term to other people, their actions, and beliefs in such a grand sweeping label that it is now just pissing me off.
You believe something that I don't like or disagree with? Then you are "hateful." That idea is "hateful," that ideology is "hateful."
People seem to be using it when they mean "thoughtless" or "different priorities," or "paradigm I don't like."
At this point the word means "hateful,' about as much as "literally" actually means "literally" in the mouth of a Millenial. (hint: it now can just mean "very," or "really".... it literally doesn't mean literally anymore)
Stop it. Stop using that word. The word HATE and HATEFUL. It no longer means ANYTHING.
