  • Someone that hates them or wants to see them dead.
    Like the Orlando shooter or Westboro Baptist Church.
    Other than that, I don't like their lifestyle and what they do in the bedroom either and I'm an atheist. Doesn't make me a terrible person.

      yeah same here it's not like we hate them

    • 3mo

      Something you should keep in mind is that people automatically assume when you say "gay lifestyle" that you believe homosexuality is a choice. It isn't. It is a birth defect.
      Try to separate their affairs in the bedroom to the way they behave in public.

      Some gays are annoying as fuck since their sexuality is their whole identity while others simply keep it between themselves and their partner and act like normal people.

  • I hate that word. Phobic or phobia is a fear. Now obviously I think it's safe to say that the majority of people out there are not "afraid" of homophobic people. So... it's a label to shame people who do not agree with the homophobic lifestyle.

    I don't agree with it for example. But I treat them the same, befriend them, love them, so on. We just agree that we disagree. Not a big deal for us. Nothing more than that. However people love to label someone such as myself as homophobic and intolerant. Can't please em all.

      "I'm a Christian="You're a bigot!""
      Thats because they are judging all Christians the same.
      Their are a broad variety of stances, some very loving and accepting, some that hate the sin love the sinner like you , and a few like the Westboro baptist church who are raging bigots.

    • 3mo

      @Waffles731 agreed! Very true.

  • All of the above. "Not agreeing" with their "lifestyle" might not be exactly homophobic but there's still quite a lot of arrogance in that statement. Being gay is not a lifestyle. It's just something that was given to you, like the color of your skin. So it just sounds silly when you say "I don't agree with their lifestyle" because that's like saying "I don't agree with being black". it just makes me think uuhm okay? Good for you?

    Since you claim to have some gay friends, I'm sure you know that their lives do not differ from other people's lives in the least. Their lifestyle is exactly the same as yours. The only difference is that they find members of the same sex attractive. Now, if you are one of those silly christians who argue that it's okay to be gay but you shouldn't "live" your gayness, then I suggest you go right ahead and show us how easy it is to live a life without any sex and without any romantic love. Good luck.

      "My holy book doesn't hate gay people" hahaha wow... now it really doesn't make sense to argue with you anymore. You're so massively ignorant. How about actually READING your holy book instead of just believing it? Wow, what a crazy suggestion. I recommend starting with the chapters Exodus, Leviticus and Deuteronomy where god openly calls his followers to kill gay people and calls homosexuality an abomination. Have fun educating yourself.

      the things written in the old testament have changed in the new my friend, when jesus came to earth he showed us how to love eachother and not despise anyone because of their actions, he talked to prostitutes and diseased and posssessed people and told everyone to love one another because no one is without sin.

  • I rarely guess when a person is homosexual. If it's clear of if they mention it, I just don't care: I wouldn't do what they do but why should I care about what happens between consenting adults in their sleeping room or in public?
    (Yes, i've been approached a few times by guys exposing their family jewels in a rest room. So what? I shrugged. I just wasn't interested)
    It's their life, not mine and in my life I've seen many things. Violence is MUCH worse and upsetting than sex, exhibitionism or PDA.

      A homophobic person just can't deal with persons thinking/feeling differently.

  • I don't think someone is "homophobic" unless they openly criticize homosexuality and try to force everyone to agree with them and shun gay people.

  • Some people are so uptight and aren't happy unless you are guiding one into the other.

    But, I only consider someone homophobic if they are actively criticizing or threatening (or actually commit) violence against someone solely because they are gay or think they are gay. That's about it, I think.
    You just have to tolerate that people with other sexual orientations exist.

      Or if you refuse to engage with a homosexual for that one reason. But again, there's a difference between just dealing with a person that you don't like and outright refusing to talk to or work with them.

What Girls Said 14

  • A person who hates homosexuals. It is neither of what you say. But others who hates Religious people or people who doesn't agree with the lifestyle or sexual orientation of the people will think so. Very immature of these people. Overall they hate you too, and don't care that you treat others right. If your against their agenda or what they believe in your an enemy. Always have always we be in their eyes. As long as you have friends who are homosexuals who love you, has understanding and care about you regardless if you disagree. Don't worry about other people. As long as other people don't threaten you, put a hand on you or try to kill you. You are at liberty to believe what you want. You what your reasons are. I am the same way. I respect them, and I love them. So for those who say that its something else better stay where their at. Because they don't know me, don't care to. If I never knew that person was into another man/woman of the same sex, it wouldn't have to matter. They chose to advertise their business when it isn't for us to know. Same with straight people who's advertising their sex life. Its nobodies business unless your making it their business.

      @Asker That's the whole point. Immaturity! The same ones who's claiming their 'defending' LBGTQA rights are the same ones who is torturing other people. I even hear in on the news a few Christians actually getting beat up by those who isn't even LBGTQA or Homosexual for that matter, who's actually straight, just like you and I! Yet some may have never went to jail for it! Hardly anybody helped! If this isn't hate against Christians, what is the phobia called for that! Yet were homophobic? They need to stop grouping everybody together who has individual believes! For not everybody is a brother or sister in Christ who believes the same thing!

  • To me you're homophobic (in terms of how that's colloquially defined). "I don't approve of their lifestyle".. that can't be interpreted any other way.

    Imagine if I said.. I like Black people as friends but I don't approve of their skin tone. I think their skin tone is less desirable my skin tone. Would that make me a racist? You betcha.

    It's your right to be homophobic. I don't personally care. I would be friends with someone who was homophobic. Cuz I don't give a fuck. But realize that kind of thinking and those kind of comments are pretty antiquated. So it's not socially prudent.

I also dislike it when people smoke, do i dislike people who smoke then? NO, it's about their actions but it's stil not a reason to hate anyone because it's not my freaking business

  • I'm bisexual, and what I consider homophobic and what another person would consider homophobic is going to be different because we have different experiences with homophobia and how it affects us.

    I think someone is homophobic if they dislike gay people and don't want to give them the same rights and want to treat them differently. Someone who opposes gay marriage, for example, I would consider homophobic. I would also consider someone homophobic if they shouted gay slurs at people in the streets or thinks gays should be locked up.

  • I will never understand people who say "I don't agree with their lifestyle". What do you want them to do? Ignore any romantic/sexual feelings that they have? That indicates that you think being gay is a choice, and while by definition you might not be a homophobe, you are an uneducated asshole in my eyes.

    What does it mean to not agree with someone's lifestyle? It's none of their business so there is no need to agree or disagree. If it doesn't appeal to you then don't live that kind of "lifestyle." I don't even think being gay is a lifestyle, it's just a sexual orientation.

      A person can't disagree with the lifestyle, they disagree with the sexual orientation and that's not something a person has control over. So yes that person who "disagrees" is homophobic...
