Homophobic And TransphobicAlright, so today at school, me and my friend were talking about school. Then I brought up the topic of gay people. I asked him if he had a best friend who you found out was gay, would he still be friends with him/her. He said yes, but he then proceded to say he would also try to make them "Ungay"
I asked him why he would try to do that, so he began a 2 minute long rant about how "Gayness" is wrong and is shunned on by God and should be destroyed. I looked at him in disgust and asked him if he was homophobic. He then stared at me, and
said how homosexuality is bad. I asked him how and he stated three very biased opinions.
After that, I moved on to the subject of transgender/sexual people. He then stated that being trans is wrong and humans should stay their gender. I then told him you could do by using hormones. He said "ewww..." He didn't even know the hormones were natural. He then brought up God again even though I told him some people feel too uncomfortable in their body and have to change genders to be happy. He then said humans were wired for their gender and nothing could change that.
Do you guys have an idea of how to explain to him about how being trans is not wrong and is equal to any other human?
