Ok I wanted to make this post because a lot of people really have no idea of what homophobia is. They think that having a gay mate or knowing some-one that's gay disqualifies them from being homophobic. They also think that making statements such as "I'm not being homophobic or anything but...." means that they can say just about anything but because they prefaced it with that statement it means its not a homophobic statement. So here are some examples of what is and what is not homophobic behavoir If the word gay makes you cringe ..... you are homophobic If you believe gay people don't belong ..... you are homophobic If you see a heterosexual couple kissing and think "oh that's sweet" but at the same time see a homosexual couple kissing and think "oh that's gross" you ARE a homophobic Statements like "Ive got nothing against gays but why do they have to rub it in our faces" and "that song is so gay" or "don't do that that is soo gay" are all homophobic statements To make it short.... Anything that implies or infers that homosexuality is less desirable or less worthy as a lifestyle than heterosexuality is homophobic It's not homophobic to know your not interested in homosexual sex..... it is however homophobic to be repulsed by the idea.
