What does it mean to be a "bleeding heart"?

I've seen that expression used a couple times on here. once at me (which didn't really make sense) and once at another. what does it mean?

Excessively sympathetic, liberal in a political sense, or both.

Ohhh alright! That's the best explanation I've got so far! Thanks! Yeah I don't get why someone called me that.... I am not overly sympathetic and I'm conservative. Thanks!

It used to just mean overly sympathetic, but it's become a sort of insulting phrase used by conservatives against anyone who thinks that the government's purpose is to help the less fortunate among us instead of giving our tax money to billionaires.

Ah. Well I believe in welfare helping people with physical and mentally disabilities like social securities benefits, and work programs for the needy. I'm middle of the road when it comes to welfare.

Well thank you! Just trying to defend myself here! I said I was conservative but that doesn't mean I'm a hardcore right wing! More middle of the road.

It means you are sympathetic toward everyone. Sometimes even at the expense of others.

Ka-how is that creepy? Sharing love could simply be a kind word or a helping hand... Not something gross... Clean up your mind
