Month Meme - Day 18

Ganked this from mrstater. Would love to see more people do it, if you've got any time at all!

Day 18: A question or comment people should never make to you
I don't know how to answer this one. I can't think of any one specific thing that people shouldn't say to me. I can think of lots of categories of things people shouldn't say around me. I have no tolerance for bigotry, so don't say anything sexist, racist, homophobic, etc. around me. I also don't suffer fools gladly and have a pretty low tolerance for willful stupidity, especially as it applies to politics and current affairs so probably best to avoid saying things that reveal that you have no brain in your head and take pride in that ignorance. Unfortunately for me several members of my extended family have tendencies to do both of these and my mother insists I keep my mouth shut for the sake of family harmony. Some nonsense about picking my battles and what's more important. What she doesn't seem to realize is that if I could pick my battles based strictly on my own priorities, I pick defending people against bigotry over family harmony and the only reason I even sometimes keep my mouth shut is because I apparently pick my mother over defending people against bigotry.
