Homophobia and straight people
So I totally understand why bisexual and homosexual etc people are homophobic because there are heteronormative pressures for them to be straight. But I don't understand why if a person if straight there homophobic that really doesn't make sense there's really no reason for them to be against homosexuality or bisexuality or any sort of same-sex attraction of any kind.

They're convinced it's wrong, some sort of crime, and a lot of ignorance about gays, many think we're plotting to make humanity go extinct or some shit like that. So it's like hating a criminal for them.

But yeah, there is no real reason, just ignorant hatred

RE: Homophobia and straight people
I have never understood why this causes them such angst. Like Nach said they think it's wrong and I find that is almost always from religious indoctrination.

The unknown/ignorance leads to fear....fear leads to hate....hate leads to suffering, or the dark side, or something like that.

RE: Homophobia and straight people
I wouldnt consider myself as 'homophobic' , but for some reason the flamming and militant in your face gays make me very uncomfortable to be around. Other than that, I dont care what someone elses sexual preferences are.

My idea is to live and let live, its your life.

No - not the dark side. We have cookies on the dark side.
Homophobic is irrational bullshit; a hatred against something that has Zero to do with you, zero threat to you and zero future for you. Kind of like Chippy's irrational fear of Wicca.

They're not scared of homosexuals - they're being assholes.

That's true too.
Assholes? Check
Irrational fears? Check


both seem true
(I have to type 'seem' for I don't suffer homophobia and can only guesstimate by observations)

RE: Homophobia and straight people
Nobody is born hating anything.

People can be taught to hate by their parents/guardians and certain parts of society.

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.
