This is a pile anti-PC articles about what are and aren't 'isms:racism, sexism, gender preference'ism (misnamed homophobia), and so on.

Racism, Sexism, Homophobia -

The more you dilute/expand and abuse a word, the weaker the meaning becomes. And the crybullies are abusing words like Racism, Sexism, Homophobia, Islamophobia, and so on, by either not understanding the meaning, or putting their agenda above the truth. This article tries to explain what is (and is NOT) an 'ism. Because obviously a lot of people seem to be getting their understanding wrong.
Fake Hate -

None of this is to diminish that there still is real hate in America. But it is rare, and often directed at the right, while here's a few dozen (hundreds) of examples of Faked hate for political gain. Fake Hate still feels like hate. The reason FakeHate happens is partly to incite violence and convince others on the left that anything they do back, is justified, because "they did it first" (even when they didn't). In order to instigate change ("progress") you have to convince people that things are so bad, that they need violence, revolution or change, so the left has always been more willing to go there. And the media has been willing to suppress the side of stories they don't like. The WSJ published a study that fully 66% (2/3rds) of "Hate Crimes" turn out to be faked, and only 1/3rd are real. That surge in hate crimes after Trump's election was more by the left than the right. If anything in here is News to you, then the News hasn't been doing its job.

Racism

Racism is the idea of thinking one race is superior (overall) to another. What it does not mean is what the left is trying to corrupt the term into: that pointing out there are any cultural or statistical differences between the races (cultures), is trying to oppress minorities, or that all differences in cultural outcome are the fault of Social Injustices or Institutional Racism by the white majority. Here's a bunch of articles on Racism. What is and is not racist.


Sexism

Sexism is the idea of thinking one gender is superior (overall) to another. What it does not mean is what the left is trying to corrupt the term into: that pointing out there are physiological, psychological (behavioral) or biological differences between the genders, is just toxic masculinity or trying to oppress Women. Here's a bunch of articles on Sexism. What is and is not sexist.


Homophobia

Homophobia literally means the unreasonable fear towards all gay people. What it does not mean is what the left is trying to corrupt the term into: any dislike or prejudice of any homosexual person or policy. Someone not liking gay marriage, or having a problem with gay-promiscuity, does not automatically mean they're homophobic: to understand that, you need to see how they feel about gay people and if they can differentiate between groups and individuals, and so on.


Conclusion

There are of course as many other 'isms' as there are special interests. Ironically (or not so ironically), the left is winning the culture war to the detriment of our culture -- but the left will virtually never complain about 'isms that they use regularly against groups they don't approve of. Bigotry against bigoted groups is still bigotry (an 'ism). So the left has a problem with White Supremacists (as do I)... but they will never admit that's bigotry. And just as assuredly, they will not criticize or go after black, Latino or Asian supremacists or separatists, because they align with the far-left post-modern Marxist agendas of tearing down the status quo and the establishment. People that lean towards that hypocrisy or the superiority of that which is new (traditions, institutions, cultures), over that which is old/established, is also an 'ism. You think liberals/left/democrats are morally superior to conservatives/Republicans, you prefer non-smokers to smokers, secularists over the religious, college-educated over farmers and tradesmen, gun controllers over gun owners, or a variety of left/right issues -- and you are as guilty of bias, bigotry or isms as those you accuse. And that's important to remember. If you aren't pure, then you don't get to wallow in the sanctimony in the moral high ground, and we all have a duty to point out their hypocrisy.
