Because that's the NOM Crowd's new meme. Many of those who opine against marriage equality (with NOM leading that charge) no longer use "bigot" solely as a way to play the victim in their own tales of marginalized woe, but are now using the word to marginalize those of us who advocate for equality. They make it sound as if it is the definitive message on every marriage equality activist's lips—as if those of us who've jumped through such considerable hoops to connect the merits of our fight in so many different ways in so many different arenas have no bulletin points other than ones that question the character and motivations that guide our opposition.
