I Do Not Understand Homophobics

    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...

    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...

    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.

    I'm straight as an arrow,

    but I just cannot see any sound-minded, logical reason to hate anyone from the LGBT community for their sexuality. I have plenty of gay friends who are nice people who live normal lives like any other human beings, and I've dated bisexual women. Sexuality in general isn't a...

    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 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.

    "Please be straight" I have never really

    imagined this coming to my inbox. This is just so insulting. And why is there a need for people to always use GOD against the LGBTQ? God created us to love one another. Nothing more, nothing less.

    When I ask homophobes exactly what their

    problem is, they give this vibe like they think it's contagious. It's not contagious, if being around a gay man makes you want to suck ****, then you ARE gay.

    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...

    The reasoning makes no sense.

    "It's a sin" A lot of things are sins. Women wearing pants, make up and dying her hair are sins. Eating shrimp is a sin. Playing with pig skin is a sin. And a lot of horrible things are not sins. "How do I explain two men kissing to my kids?" Easy. They love each other. "They...
