That's a good point, but I don't think modern homophobia is based on religion.
It's not in all cases, but in many cases it is. Take a look at this series for example, you'll see how because of religion, Uganda has tried to pass bills that would imprison and kill gays, and since these missionaries went there from USA, newspapers have leaked the adresses of gays and dozens of innocent people have been attacked by christians in the country.

So... Uganda is wasting it's funds on killing innocents instead of supporting itself?

Homophobia rocks...

Why would anyone let this thread die




I got into a pretty heated public debate with a homophobe. Nobody "won", he just sorta gave up on it.

actually, he did. I said no, but then he kept implying that straight people cannot defend/socialize with gays etc.


His arguments didn't make much sense and he ended the debate saying "gays are weird".
If my theory is correct, then yes, genetically speaking LGBTs are very strange, but Japanese cartoons are (very) weird and I don't see them get rejected from society and discriminated, do you?

...?

Anyway, I think the only reason people my age are gay-negative (hey a new word: gayneg) is because they are influenced by the stupid ass nine year olds in the YouTube comments.

Also because lgbt orientations aren't considered normal because of heteronormativity. It's usually set out as straight being normal and lgbt people outside that as something else entirely.
If every orientation were introduced to people on an level playing field, rather than just focusing entirely on heterosexual relationships as the norm, there would be less homophobia/transphobia in future generations imo.
Also more people need to be willing to accept mistakes and change because some folks can be homophobic without knowing.

Because it only emerged around secondary school as a curiosity, then there was denial and a need to fit in so i would still call people 'faggots' and the like. Then I just didn't care and came to terms with it and stopped saying stuff that I wouldn't like to be called.

I think whether it's normal or not is actually completely irrelevant.
People with red hair or green eyes are not the norm. Virtually nobody has a problem with them, and neither is there any reason to.
But define the group a little differently - people with eyes or hair, and you have a norm.
The people who think they can make an argument against LGBT people because they're not 'normal' are as clueless as someone who would make an argument against someone with green eyes because they are not 'normal'. And if people are so bothered with others not being normal then just find a word for a group including heterosexuals and LGB... problem solved.

Huh, apparently homophobia amongst younger people is based on the same thing anti-Islam is: ignorance.

For instance, the homophobes my age think that the only thing gay people do is, well, what gays do that separate them from heteros.

My, my, what a glorious generation. 




Desperate times call for desperate measures. I'm wearing this modified shirt at school tomorrow; such bravery no?
