Can we all agree that parts of speech matter? Yes, adjectives can act as nouns, and nouns can act as adjectives, but for the most part, parts of speech aren’t randomly assigned with no import.
“Well, you just like such-and-so because you’re bias!”

bias, n. a particular tendency
biased, adj. having preference
