I think it’s probably the parent in me, but even the football hooligans could in theory change. I in no way disagree with your opinion of them but if my targeting their behaviour rather than them themselves leaves the door open for a change of heart, I’ll do it.As I said, I wasn't aiming the word at anyone in particular. Maybe I failed to convey that well enough.
But there are certain people where the word is very apt...Westboro Baptist church folk or rabid, frothing at the mouth MAGAs, or if we take a UK perspective, people who graffiti NF /Swastikas or football hooligans...
Idiots the lot of them...at best.
Of course, I’m still pretty sanguine about the chances of that distinction making any practical difference….
