What’s Your Problem with Gays?

27 Feb

It has always baffled me exactly what the reason is that homophobes hate homosexuals.

The first thing people say is, “God says it’s bad, it’s in the bible!  It’s a sin!  It’s an abomination!”

A sin?  Well it’s not one of the Ten Commandments.  And we all know how much conflicting stuff there is in the bible.  Somebody said eating shrimp was an abomination in there too.  You can argue about the meaning of “adultery” whether it’s sex with married people… that you’re not married to, or if it’s sex between any people who are not married to each other (i.e. both single).  If that is the case, why aren’t people out protesting against adulterers?  Why aren’t people banning adulterers from military service, marching in parades, getting medical benefits from each other, or getting married?  Murder and theft are also sins, why aren’t people banning murderers and thieves from getting married and marching in parades?  I know they have trouble with getting jobs and renting apartments sometimes… funny so do my homosexual friends.

OK let’s ignore the “Bible” excuse.  What’s the real problem?  You think it’s gross?  So is 7/8’s of the stuff that goes on in your own bedroom or porn movies and mags.  I’ve had men ask me to do stuff that I think is disgusting… I didn’t go and tell them they can’t get married or adopt kids or visit their loved one on their deathbed.  I say no thanks, not for me and move on.  Did that hurt anybody?  I think perhaps the things they wanted to do to my “exit in the rear” would hurt a lot more than saying “no thanks”.

Fun fact: I know a guy who says he’s not a homophobe because “he has no problem with ‘them’ as long as they leave him alone” and liberally uses the word fag and faggot as a demeaning term… guess what his favorite thing in the world to do with women is?  You guessed it… anal sex!  Explain that one, macho guy…  And one time I asked him what would you do if a gay guy hit on you in a bar, he said he’d punch him in the face.  I then asked what he’d do if a woman whom he wasn’t interested in hit on him, he said he’d politely say “no thank you”.  Wha?!

Let’s not even start with the latent homosexual theory.  I don’t know if it’s that they have homosexual stirrings and are self-loathing and fighting them or they fear if they are friendly toward gays they will some how lose their virility card.  I don’t know, we’ll have to take that up with Dr. Freud another time…

Who gives a shit?  Really?  Seriously?  How does it hurt you?  Don’t give me that marriage integrity crap, that’s gone out the window along time ago with Liz Taylor’s 8th marriage, Newt Gingrich’s 3rd marriage, and Larry King’s 7th marriage.

Some of the people that have enriched my life the most and loved me the most in my life have been gay.  If I was judgmental, look at the joy I would have missed out on?  Not to mention the great hairstyles, floral arrangements, and interior decorating I would have missed!  I’m kidding, I’m kidding, it was a joke!  My gay friends joke about the stereotypes all the time, oy.  As my friend TJ says, “Hey Girl!” is American Gay for “Hello”.  🙂

It just bothers me when people stubbornly stand by principles that are not hurting anybody else.  Who made you judge and jury?  Who made you God?  If there is some problem, God or whatever higher power will judge them.  Maybe there is no judge even?  If there isn’t then who cares?

Live and let live I say.  I’m so tired of people and their damn self-righteous bullshit.  Let he who is without sin cast the first stone… as they say.

    Ha! Don’t know where I’b be without all my gay guys 🙂 Fact is they are just people and sexual preference doesn’t change their hearts. Never understood the prejudice either. Other than, men might feel uncomfortable because they know nothing of THAT world. But they need to wake up…because gay people live in THEIR world…OUR world…and they need to get over it.

      Exactly. Just people like everyone else and they are your neighbor, your doctor, your mailman, your elected officials, your pastor, etc.

    You won’t get an argument from me. Apparently, now you won’t even get an argument from the Governor of Arizona. Somehow, I’m not feeling encouraged by Jan Brewer. I think her vetoing of the anti-gay bill was done purely out of her realizing that it could be an economic disaster for the state — not to mention costing them the Super Bowl — but — whatever.

      Yea I think Jan Brewer totally caved to pressure and not conscience.

    Prejudice regardless of it’s form is ugly. I have never understood the need to point out who is or isn’t “normal”. What is normal anyway. Is it the guy who hates anyone that’s not like him?… who may prefer a same sex mate… who doesn’t seem to have the same issue with the “normal” guy? I guess what I’m saying is, it’s just plain stupid. It’s really none of our business. It should only matter if it causes harm to others. I really can’t see where this does. Sigh!

    The second person at my bedside after my shooting was my gay boss (the first was my father). He has stuck by me longer than either my husband at the time or my husband since then. I don’t know, I think he has a loyalty gene no one else has.

    i am with you on this one.

    You put a strong and comprehensive case and your readers including this one agree. Any sexual preference that involves no coercion is no-one else’s business. Top 3 reasons why straight males should appreciate our gay friends 1/ They have a very low rate of pedophilia. 2/ Some are happy to discuss fashion and shopping with our girlfriends and thereby relieve us of the job 3/ They slightly improve the odds for the rest of us !

    I love that this is tagged “don’t be an idiot” extreme homophobia just makes no sense to me! I don’t understand it, like you said, can’t they just mind their own business? But perhaps you could say it’s human nature to find the outsider and devote a lot of energy to hating them- history certainly implies it. Sad, so sad. BUT it is wonderful to see just in a few decades the great strides that have been made for gay rights!

      Oh yes absolutely happy at the strides we have taken. Gives me hope!
