    Homophobics. I really don't understand.

    Why are they afraid/disgust from us? I'm a Bi. I told my friends that i like both girls and boys. And they were like you are so gay. They commented how you can like a thing(that is same love) like that.I just quote "Being a hater doesn't make you straighter".They still doesn't...

    What's the Point?

    often, when i react to another person's homophobic remarks, people will say to me, "you're not gay, so why do you care?" while it's true that i'm not homosexual, i don't see why i shouldn't care. i've always looked at it like this: as a straight girl, if i'm in a...

    When I was 12 I started to come to the

    realization that I liked girls. So to my group of friends that I had, I told them I was bi-curious. Most of them were very okay with it. But I had this one friend who wasn't. Every single day, she would tell me how wrong I am and how I was going to hell. She wouldn't let it go...

    I Could Never Understand Homophobes

    I have never had an issue with people in the LGBT community. At ten years old my favourite tv couple was an LGBT couple. Since then I became more and more aware of LGBT rights and the problems they face. Even at that age I could not understand how people could treat others...

    I have a friend who is a bisexual.

    Her parents are homophobic. They told her that if she ever gave them a reason to doubt her sexuality, they would disown her. How can they not understand that it's not her fault that she is bisexual? It is the way nature made her.

    Homophobia Is Gay

    It's hard to understand human hatred at the best of times, especially when your hatred stems from a time where the people who lived through it have been dead for centuries. But homophobia? That's just silly. For one thing, it's not a phobia. You're not afraid of gay people. You...

    This is what I don't understand.

    Homophobia is a phobia, a fear. People don't see a gay, lesbian or bisexual and run away from them like some people would with arachnophobia. No, it's literally ignorance. I hope I don't sound sexist, and I'm sure this is the same with girls, but I've met a lot of 'homophobic...

    I believe that GOD will not turn down

    or frown upon any type of love, despite who's giving or receiving it. As long as it is love, I think he smiles. Seeming GOD has no gender himself, I don't think gender preference is a pressing issue for him. His love exceeds gender lines, so why would our love on earth not be...

    Beloved, let us love one another,

    for love is of God; and everyone who loves has been born of God, and knows God. He who doesn’t love doesn’t know God, for God is love. By this God’s love was revealed in us, that God has sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 1John 4:7-9

    I don't get homophobes.

    Ok first of all those who say being gay is a sin, the bible says a lot of things like don't lie, don't cheat.. etc and 99% of the religious people have done that, so thats not an excuse to hate gays. IF being gay is a sin then they are bigger sinners. If I do go to hell for...

    Homophobic's are generally insecure about their

    own sexuality. It's something they have not come to terms with. The good news is it's their problem, not yours.
