yep the as long as they dont touch me criteria for acceptance has always puzzled me. i tend to like anyone up to the point of them trying to molest me, ive never been sure why some people would restrict this point to homosexuals

its almost on a par with 'i dont have a problem with them, we should treat them like they are human too'

i think its homophobia at its most innocent - a genuine slight fear or discomfort as opposed to a hatred.



Yeah I suppose; homophobia can be easy to...get over with, kinda. If people- whose actually a little bit scared of gays - go and talk to one (RL or online) seriously most of us are perfectly normal -__-; theres' nothing to be scared of...

at least, my friends didn't change a bit when i told them; I still get hit when i make fun of them, I still get hugs when i feel down, and i still get to leech food from them....etc..

Homophobic is the scary one -_-; it's almost like a person being taken over by hatred...


even then homophobics can be battling some personal inner demons. its true what they say that some people who arent secure about their own confused sexual feelings will channel that confusion into hatred. its like they externalise their hatred for themselves and put it onto 'out' gays that they come across.

then there are people who might have been molested by an adult of the same gender and dont realise that there is a difference between gay and paedophile.

of course some people are just hateful for messed up reasons of their own, and your sexuality might just be an excuse to 'gay bash'. it might not even have anything to do with your sexuality. they could hit you or yell at you simply for looking at them funny, or having a nose ring, or being thinner than they are, or better looking, or more confident. they are simply so angry at the world they will take any chance to lash out and the gay label is just a soft target.

i know several incrediblly happy lesbians and several very miserable heterosexuals.

of course some people just dont like them, i was just 'doing justice' to some people who might have actual issues. i do have to question though why someone wouldnt like someone who they dont have to know or sleep with. why not simply be ambivalent?

notice i also didnt get started on the religious argument. that one winds me up too much...

The same reason why a person could like something suddenly. One could dislike something suddely for no reason.
Or maybe they seen two guys kissing and recoiled at this.


i have two neighbours that im good friends with

my next door neighbour is a jehovahs witness (essentially he's part of a brainwashing cult) but is a nice guy. however, their opinion on gays is not good, although my neighbour personally wouldnt give them any grief unlike other members of his faith!

my other neighbour is gay, very gay

and in between is me (quite literally)

so my JW neighbour found out that my other neighbour is gay and says to me
"he cant be gay, he goes to the gym every day and has lots of muscle. and he bleaches his hair!"

i had absolutely no response to this......

by the way i think seeing two guys kissing would be a reason. not a reaction i would have myself, id probably just watch, but it is at least a reason. but as far as the distinction between disliking and hatred, i think there should be a distinction made between the two. my neighbour dislikes homosexuality, but doesnt hate any gay people.

people who actively hate gay people were probably the type of people i was initially commenting on more. and the reasons why they might have such extreme reactions to gay people. if something doesnt effect your life and you dont have to have anything to do with it, then dislike it as is your human right, but to actively hate on people verbally and physically is another issue.

Or as a Klansman's son said to me long ago.
"Its not that we hate Black people individually but to allow them to get what they want would harm America."

Some would hate a group to protect society. They decide to be Anti-Biotics against something that they feel would harm society.



that would be their claim yes, peoples reasons of course are not always based in fact.

and couldnt that also be explained in terms of an irrational fear? because AIDS isnt a gay disease, its higher amoung the straight community than the gay one. gay people arent more likely to be sexual predators than straight people. they arent more likely to start a war either. even though there is often a genetic component, you dont find families of gays in communities. being gay doesnt mean you have a gay child, just in the same way that multiple sclerosis is genetically predetermined but usually doesnt occur amoung children of sufferers. the human race WONT die out because gays exist, the fear being that they will spread and decrease the number of children born, because gay people have always have existed and our population is a big as ever, if not more so.

Why do you believe we'd go at you just because you have a wang o_o? Do you go after women for the sole reason that they have a vagina?

Sorry, but I think it is there choice and therefore I support whoever is that way. Point one though: Gay is a term for happyness or it is slang for what we are discussing, the real term is homosexuals... so use it.
