    I have a friend who told me he was homophobic recently, i'm okay with people making jokes about races and homosexuals as long as they aren't serious. but this guy is serious and now i'm thinking alot of my friends are actually racists and homophobes. Which i cant stand since i think racists and homophobes are ignorant and i cant stand having ignorant friends. so i'm planning to find out how serious they are about their jokes and if they are then im burning bridges. Has the same thing happened to anyone else?

    No, I never made friends like that. I've had acquaintances like that, and that is why they stay acquaintances and not friends. And to be quite honest with you they are barely even acquaintances. People like that and me usually meet once or twice, and I never see them again, for whatever reason. I swear people like that suck your soul dry. Run, RUN FOR DEAR LIFE!!

    The second I find out that a person is a bigot, I keep away.

    I have no time or patience for ignorance.

    I'm pretty quick with my decisions when it comes to suck folks; i make myself scarce. Like it or not, if you hang out with them, it rubs off on you.
    I mean, we are all entitled to our opinions but no one has to stay friends with bigots.
    Go on Theaussieone, light the fire to those bridges.

    Is it yours? If so, you are in a bad place and will have to keep talking to her. :sad:

    I have had to drop bigots once I found out that was what they were. And sometimes I have done it with deliberation and telling them exactly why, sometimes I just faded out and got away. You will have to judge with your so-called friends what the best way is to handle this.
