    Just So We Are Clear!

    Someone on here seems to think i am.....Though I'm not sure....She makes very little sense. But just to be totally, 100% clear. I am not! Love is love, regardless.   I am also a supporter of gay marriage.

    I Dont Understand Why So Many Guys Freak Out About It

    i am a guy and i am in no way homophobic. i dont think that its wrong either. i dont think its a choice. i have seen first hand that it is not. it just doesnt bother me at all. just because you are talking to a gay guy doesnt mean that everyone thinks your gay. i dont get it.

    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...

    I Am Not Heterophobic

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Is That Going to Be a Problem?

    Easier To Accept.

    It's clear that many people can't deal with things they're not used to. People judge tattoos, wild hairstyles, you name it! Personally, I find it easier to be who I want to be, and be cool when everyone else does the same. Why should anyone have to be uncomfortable to show their...

    See to me there are different types of gay

    people, there are the ones that you would never guess to being gay, and then the very flamboyant type, that let everyone know they're gay, and will flirt with any man regardless of their sexual preference. In reality I don't care if someone is gay, I don't want to know if you...

    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.
