    I Couldn't Be

    That only reflects a fear on the part of the person expressing it. How can I fear them? I'm on someone elses radar ans someone to be feared too. I know how it feels. The derision, the words, the looks. It is not fun and it is spiteful and hurtful. No I'm not homophobic...

    Who You Enjoy Being With Is Who You Enjoy

    I don't get Homophobia. Sexuality is not contagious so the gender anyone is with really isn't important to me directly. How someone treats others is the only thing that I can go on as to who they are not who they are with sexually.

    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...

    Being Gay Makes You Cooler

    It wasn't until last night that I realized how cool I think it is for someone to be gay. I made that discovery as a result of my time on EP. This is my second EP account, my "real" account. My first one was a Fake Lesbian account ( EP Link ).  I told all of my friends up front...

    I Used To Be A Huge Homophobe! - But Then Something Happened...

    Like the title says, I used to be a huge homophobe. I would walk down the streets of my home town and just say hateful and spiteful things about homosexuals. I believed that all homosexuals were damned to hell. I never supported violence against homosexuals, as I am disgusted by...

    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...

    Not At All

    I'm not homophobic at all. I love everyone, straight, gay, transexual/gendered, bisexual...I don't see a 'sex' of someone defines who they are as a person. Everyone has a heart no matter what, and that's really what happens to matter, is their heart, their personality...

    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.

    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...

    No, I'm not. And I don't get people that are. Seriously. Can someone explain to me why one should be afraid of homosexuals? And don't bring up god or the bible because, come on, we all know that doesn't mean anything.
