An extremely narrow minded person who cannot think for themselves. They can make a lot of assumptions and are self-reightous. A lot of the time selfish, and hates anything they do not understand.

Bigots typically include homophobes, xenophobes (hater other races), and even haters of pedophiles aka pedosexuals can be bigots. Apparently bigots think that pedophiles endorse sex with children. Most in fact, are against molesting children. Although they are sexually oriented to children, it is a sexual orientation they cannot control like homosexuality.

Bigots are more common than one would think. For example, 30 years ago homosexuals would go to prison, yet not many people objected to that. Today, pedophilia is the main taboo, and bigots are now active in preventing pedophiles from expressing their sexuality - even though most pedophiles do NOT want to molest or harm any child, but a simply attracted to them.

Some bigots frequently think that their race is superior to others, and that their ways and methods should be the only ways. Thus, bigots are very selfish people.

Bigot is first recorded in English in 1598 with the sense “a superstitious hypocrite.” The origin of the word has strong ties with religion.
Bigots are homophobes, xenophobes and even pedophile haters can be considered bigots.
