    This is a sore subject

    for me. Why are people homophobic. What purpose does it serve to them? Do they really not have anything better to do with their life?! Seriously?! I'm not homosexual. But I know so many people who are! My nans best friend is a lesbian. She had a civil partnership with her...

    Oh, so you like having sex with people of the

    same gender? Great! As long as you don't force anything on me, I'm fine with it. A lot of peopel have gotten upset because I just don't react when they come out. Honestly, I don't care. Go do what you want as much as you want, as long as it's not hurting anyone.

    But I Know Someone Who Is

    My old stepfather is extremely homophobic believing homosexuals are the lowest form of life on earth. I took a class in college where the professor stated that those who speak out against gays or are homophobic have a repressed desire for it. Looking back on him and his actions...

    I Was Not Placed On This World to Judge

    It doesn't matter to me what people do and how they wish to enjoy a relationship.  If you really get right down to the bare facts of life, each and everyone that says that they love someone is for what ever reason could be accused of being to a degree in love with someone of...

    Laughable!

    This is laughable to me. What's to be afraid of??? I mean, REALLY! Anyone who knew the true me would know that I am the last person in the world to be homophobic. For one thing, I have a brain and I'm pretty much fearless when it comes to most things. And this is just a...

    Me and my mom were watching 19 kids

    and counting.. And I asked her "I wonder what would happen if any of the duggars came out as gay." And her answer was "I don't know, they'd disown them, being gay is a choice, it's a sin and they should ask for forgiveness, it's nasty and people aren't born gay." I got really...

    It's Funny.

    It's funny. I spent a fair portion of the past hour trying to think about what to write as a story for this group. I've had experiences seeing homophobia and its consequences, and I could ramble on about its consequences, but I'd rather not. Instead, I'll say this: It's funny...

    I Have Never Have Been Homophobic And Lost Friends Due To Homophobics

    I am the only one in my family who isn't against LGBT which is quite hard but I am proud to say out loud I support LGBT! My best friends were gay and dating, and they got bullied badly for it until one day, I lost them to bullies T_T. That broke my heart because I miss them so...

    Homophobic people need to get

    vasectomies/hysterectomies so they can never become parents and brainwash their children. They have no right to be parents.

    Nope

    Everyone is made a certain and way and nothing can change that. I except everyone for who they are and have nothing wrong with someone for loving who they want to. I actually have a gay relative and he's a cool dude!

    No One Is Homophobic

    Homophobic was a term made up and than assigined to anyone who disagreed with the homosexual lifestyle.  Just because you do not agree with someone does not make you phobic of them.  Many really good people are treated poorly simply because thier point of view is...

    My One Regret

    I've never had a problem with anyone's sexuality.  From a strictly practical standpoint, the world is divided into People I'll Sleep With, and People I Won't Sleep With.  The first group consists of my husband, and the second consists of everyone else.  So what...

    Is That Going to Be a Problem?

    Growing up in Cali we are very open to new things, and homosexuality is just a part of everyday life. I know lots of couples who are gay and have a few close friends who are too and we chat and talk about out relationships like there is no difference. I really don't think this...

    I hate the word "Homophobic.

    " It is not a phobia! You're not scared, you're just a disrespectful ******* who can't accept people for who they are. To me there is no difference between a different sex couple and a same sex couple, the idea of love is the same for each and is just as valuable.
