I Don't Like People Who Make Fun of Gays and Lesbians

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,018 People

    I was speaking to a friend of mine

    and my sexuality came up, unfortunately this is a regular occurrence. She said "why can't I have a gay best friend? I know you're bi but I want a real GBF. You're just not gay enough." I felt so offended by the random stereotyping of me "not being gay enough" considering I'm...

    Honestly, I'm surprised

    that the human race still holds onto values from a book written so many years ago... Who cares if someone is gay... They're happy... Shouldn't we want that?

    I really don't like how they portray gay people

    in the media as these really flamboyant and fashion savvy men with heavy lisps and these butch lesbians with short hair, deep voices, and aggressive nature. I know some might be like that in some ways, but that's not how I am. I'm a guy that likes other guys and I don't act like...

    Being Gay Is Not a Choice.... It Is a Blessing

    If my son turns out to be gay,

    all I will do is hug him and say its okay. I would never say, "I'm not proud of you because you're gay," its like saying, "I'm not proud of you because you have brown hair or blue eyes," THEY ARE BORN WITH IT

    Yesterday, my mom and her friend were talking

    Most human beings have lost all humanity.

    To the point were we become just like Hitler except we are targeting people by their sexuallity. All of us are worth the same no matter our religion,race,or sexuallity. By the way I'm not gay but I think that the people who make it public are awesome.

    I don't like it either.

    You know people say that people fear what they don't understand especially if you can't understand yourself or don't want to, ignoring your true sexual desires and branding them as disgusting is a true homophobic thing to do, not only are they discriminating against gays, but...

    And bisexuals. And poly / pansexuals.

    And transgender people (though trans people really have nothing to do with the rest of the LGB spectrum as they're based in gender identity / expression and not sexual orientation).

    What's annoying is when people try to use the

    term 'gay' as an insult. It's very ignorant to even associate someone's sexual orientation as something negative. We don't substitute the word 'stupid' with 'straight', so why is it okay to say 'that's gay'?

    Why do you have to hate on other people just

    living their lives? Homosexual people aren't some alien species completely different from heterosexuals. We're all just people, doing our best to live in this crazy world. Not need to make anyone else's life any harder for no reason.

    I support gays and lesbians.

    And this is my thought: imagine if we, straight people, were always judged because we are showing love to our bf/gf, how would we feel? Put yourself on their shoes, be empathic. I bet you would hate it to the point of hating yourself. So respect their decision and respect them.

    I do not see a problem with same gender

    relationships. But I do have a problem if a man tries to make out with me. I am straight, but 50% asexual. It doesn't mean I don't want sex, I just don't want as much as the other guys.
