Bigotry comes in multiple shapes and sizes. Not every bigot attempts to smash somebodyʼs head in the public lavatory or holds the sign “God Hates Fags!”; quite often bigotry in todayʼs society camouflages itself for protectionism or tolerance politics. While it is impossible to create a check-list of the ways to identify bigotry, one can do a next best thing and set up series of red flags (which will indicate that something may be bigotry).

Protectionism

See the article on protectionism.

There are a lot of problems with protectionism at it exists, but often it will come together with bigotry intertwined in its approach. People will claim that they (for example) support gays, but only “good gays” who do not express themselves in public. Many of the responses to Fuck For Forest at A-Kongress incident are examples of that, people claimed that they were “protecting” the women by disallowing anyone from being nude.

Fundamentalism

Fundamentalism of any sorts (whether religious or political) often leads to bigotry, often we hear about the need to be accepting of other peopleʼs views and cultures, without at the same time any demand for those views and cultures to be accepting of diversity.
