A person who thinks all men are better than all women is an example of a bigot.
Origin of bigot
- French excessively religious person, religiously intolerant person from Old French Norman person, excessively religious person of unknown origin
From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition
- From French bigot (“a bigot, hypocrite”), from Middle French bigot, from Old French bigot, originally a derogatory term applied to Normans for their frequent note of the Old English oath bī god (“by God”). It is not known, however, whether the precise Germanic language of origin is English: compare Middle High German bī got, Middle Dutch bi gode.
- An alternate etymology (Liberman, Grammont, et al.) derives the Old French word from Albigot (“Albigensian heretic”) .
