Tolerance? Gimme a fucking break.
Homosexuality is simply part of humankind - it always has been and always will be - religious nut jobs like this woman need to get over it - but Christians can understand this or accept this simply because their holy book is so anti-homosexual.
(and she was probably bi in college - if she went to college)
This makes me feel so tired. I know this is nothing new...the accusations of "recruitment" have been lobbed at the lgbtqi community for some time. But it makes no sense...I guess they'll say anything to justify their fear. If I could wave some magical rainbow-striped wand to "recruit" heterosexuals across the "lines" into The Dark Side, I wouldn't, not for a second. I know that's politically incorrect and I'm supposed to embrace my diversity and blah, blah, blah...but because of groups like Focus on the Family, I wouldn't wish this on any child. Well, I guess this version of the conspiracy takes a slightly new twist: heterosexual allies of the gay community and fair minded educators must now be included in the ranks of the "recruiters." But why would a heterosexual teacher recruit a heterosexual student to The Dark Side? Straight teachers have no devious incentive to recruit for the other team!? So, what's going on here, hrrm, Focus on the Family? :-o
If God hates queers so much, why did he make them so powerful?
aren't they tired of being afraid of, and hating so many different types of people? I'm so offended, and I'm straight. This organization is going out of their way to target only homosexuals. Who the fuck cares, honestly, how does this affect them?
I just don't know what to do with this. I was going to send them an email saying how disgusted I was with all this slander, but it wouldn't make any difference. They honestly believe that they are doing the best thing that they can, and that's the saddest and most infuriating part of all this.
So children being exposed to even the idea of homosexuality is wrong and unfair because they're "just innocent children," but shoving the bible down their throats as soon as possible is acceptable? That makes sense.
Reading one these comments reminded me of something.
At a family dinner, somebody mentioned something about the political candidates and a social issue. I then went into homosexuality and their views on that as well. The moment I spoke the word 'homosexual' , my family flipped the fuck out on me and told me there were children around.
I could not have been more offended in front of my family before. They were trying to silence a discussion about something that is perfectly natural to speak about as if the word 'homosexual' had some hidden and magical power to turn their children into raging homo's.
Shhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! Don't talk about that around the children, they're too young ... !
AND my family is not Christian. It's so disgusting that homophobia is so rampant even among non religious people.
Well, some of the problem is homophobia, but not all of it. There is also hatred of homosexuals, for which we don't seem to have a word as glib as "homophobia," which itself literally means "fear of men or mankind," so even it is used in lieu of a more precise term.
Some may fear gays, but I'm sure some simply hate gays. This woman clearly lives in fear, but I think some of the bashing and murder of gays is driven by hatred more than fear.
And no, not all hatred is fear-based.
@Kris Feenstra Actually "homo" also means self, so "homophobia" also means fear of self. Well, I think fear and hatred are distinct enough to deserve separate words.
Anyway, the point behind the point I was making that gays all too frequently refer to the motive behind attacks as "homophobia," which to me means fear of gays, which is kind of bizarrely optimistic.
Sometimes, however, I think it's just hatred of gays. It's strange we don't have a word for that.
