Probably because a lot of those bigots are also hypocrites.

I don't like yaoi and stuff like it, but I don't have a problem with it.

I think it's because generally girls are closer to each other than guys. They hug and kiss each other, hold hands, they say "I love you" to each other, they don't seem to have any problems with being touchy fealy or being around each other naked. Obviously there are exceptions, not all girls are like this, but most of all the girls that went to my high school seemed to be like that. Whereas men generally don't hug and kiss each other or be all touchy fealy and all that other stuff, so when two girls kiss, have sex, etc it is less weird than two guys.

No... do you hate or fear straight people? I suspect not, so you're likely not a heterophobe.

I personally don't mind seeing quick kisses or hugs between people (in fact it warms my heart), but I think making out in public is rude and a bit yucky, too.

Sometimes I fear what some straight people want to do to me, but those fears are generally well-founded.

With me, I don't see the big deal. If the dudes and ladies wanna be gay, let them. I'm not gonna hate them and tell them it's wrong, because it's not my place to say anything, I'm trying to live my own life. I'm not worrying about what some other dude is doing with another guy, or what some chick is doing with another chick, to be more specific, I'm indifferent. I don't really care, I just don't want anything to do with it, and I don't support it either, but that's something you wanna do, then more power to you. I just wanna be able to live my life and be able to freely live the way I choose, like as an American, without being called a homophobe, or racist or whatever. Hopefully that makes sense.

As soon as you call folks opposed to homosexualtiy "homophobes" then you lose any real argument you could possibility have. Does that then make homosexuals "heterophobes?"

Homophobic feelings has nothing to do with most of the people who are opposed to homosexuality. You can be against something and not be afraid of it. I oppose homosexuality due to how it tries to redefine marriage and a family and I have had gay friends. Do I hope their lifestyle changes of course. But that does not stop me from being a coworker or friend to them.

I disapprove of your yucky heterosexuality and wish you'd stop pushing it in my face all the time. It's like I can't even turn on the tv these days without heterosexuality being shoved down my throat. The heterosexual agenda is trying to redefine my family and convince my child that being a heterosexual is a good way to live. We need to make laws to protect the natural homo family unit and keep the heterosexuals from bringing their propaganda into our schools and playgrounds.

Okay, so in all seriousness, I do kind of think straights are a bit yucky, and I do really hate it when they grope each other in public and expect me not to care. Earlier in the thread I was determined to not be heterophobic, by the way. But the above paragraph seems ridiculous because it is ridiculous - and it's how people like you sound to people like me, including your "gay friends". If they haven't told you so yet, it's because they're just too polite.

A lot of homophobes I know are also men, I think that probably has something to do with them not caring if there are lesbians because they won't like them or harass them etc. :/ If they are female I think they tend to dislike men and women both. I like yaoi and I'm a straight girl, but yuri isn't my thing.

Forget the bible, this is how homosexual acts were stopped.

Equating homophobia to fear is an etymological fallacy, semantic variant.
(Details on the fallacy can be found here: www.fallacyfiles.org/etymolog.html)

Merriam-webster defines it as "irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals." Note the word "or," indicating that fear (as implied by the etymology) is an option - not a requirement.

You may have gay people that you know and are not hostile towards, but if you "oppose homosexuality" then calling them friends is an insult to the very concept of friendship. Also, it's not "a lifestyle." Clubbing or celibacy are 'lifestyles,' being attracted to members of one's own gender is something far more complex.

As far as male homophobes, I think they think lesbians are hot. They have this image in their head of lipstick lesbians making out. As far as gay men go, many of us were actually brought up in a society that made fun of gay men. I remember as a kid I was called gay and f*g as an insult as if it were a bad thing. As I got older, I became enlightened and moved past those ideas.

I think if you love someone then it doesn't matter if it's a man and a woman or two men or two women. Love is love. Not everyone lives their lives the same way we do.

I think I may go the rest of my life wondering why people are so against letting gays and lesbians marry. I honestly do not see what the big deal is.

Are you seriously arguing over the fact that I used the word correctly?

The "I have gay friends" line gets old. Not only is it pointless, it doesn't justify anything. Great you have gay friends, the only thing you proved was that ....well you have gay friends. Though you might want to reconsider your words. You might think they are your friends but chances are, you're probably not theirs. Btw I don't have gay friends
