Gosh, no, I didn’t think that at all! I was apologising to ALL who have participated on the Wild West Forum. My responses (to some posts) were emotional responses.
And although I am white, I have faced (religious) bigotry. My older brother is gay, so I know the hatred that the LGBTQ+ community faced-faces, even today with more liberal views.
So when arguments seem based in fear-or anti-isms, I do tend to get cranky.
