    Jesus H Christ they are the scariest lot on the

    planet! I had an encounter with a guy who quoted Milanov Vitaly at me last week. "To be homophobic is normal and admirable". He then went on to regale me with stories of how good Putin is for Russia with the anti-gay environment that they created over there to uphold the good...

    to be honest, sometimes I don't understand

    why people think it's wrong that two girls or two guys would be together in a relationship.

    I am frightened by homosexuality.

    I was raped by a man, and am a boy. All the time he kept saying we're a couple of fa___ts, that's what we are. You're a qu___, and I'm a qu__r. You're gonna be one for the rest of your life. It happened last year, summer '014, and I am still tryna heal from that. It's very hard...

    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...

    I just learned that Homosexuality is found in a

    lot more species than we thought - over 1500, and that it's important for the actual survival of the species. If a youngsters parents die, homosexual animals tend to adopt them as their own, compared to their heterosexual peers who's busy producing their own kids. Just thought I...

    I don't like the way the expression confuses

    being afraid of someone and disliking someone. Those are two very different emotions. Homosexuals wouldn't have an issue if it were a phobia - a fear of gays. If there were someone truly and literally homophobic, that would be a curiosity - not a big problem. By homophobic...

    Well, actually I think I do.

    Studies have been done to show that they are actually gay themselves. It is entirely possible they realize this and act out against it to allay suspicion. It is also entirely possible that it is a subconscious thing, for the same reasons. William Shakespeare coined the phrase...

    It really annoys me when a person comes out

    and someone asks them "When did you decide that?" Homosexuality is not a 'decision' it's a way of life! It's scientifically proven that people are born with their sexuality and only discover it later in life. Someone doesn't wake up in the morning and think "Hmm I think I might...

    Who cares what another person loves?

    Just focus on yourself and stop hating others choices. They choose to do what they want to do, and if their sexual preference bothers you, (which it shouldn't), you're obviously a very ignorant person.

    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.

    Homophobic people criticize people

    who have DIFFERENT orientation, but they like people of a DIFFERENT gender Are you seeing the point? They criticize difference but they love difference at the same time. There is no coherence.
