I like the way you think, but still don't like people tagging phobia at the end of everything.

Hey is calling somebody a homophobe a microaggression??? LOL

Only you are taking it to that extreme.


Furthermore;

No fear involved.


No, not really. Only in your eyes would you call a reasonable disagreement about certain facets of the agenda "phobic" aversion.

Again, we are coming to same loggerheads that we have with the definition of gender. With the left, all things are relative it appears. If I simply disagree with anything, I must therefore be "phobic" in my aversion. It helps you to label people who disagree in such a manner because then you don't actually have to spend time thinking about the things we say.

You can simply dismiss it out of hand and write pithy three line, three word comebacks.

But I get it, your time is valuable.

I have a phobia of people who have phobias of other people having phobias about them.

Where can I poop?

This is so true.

I coach two lesbian softball players and I treat them the same as all my other players. I don't care that they are lesbians and it has no relevance to playing softball and being part of the team.


But you're "repulsed" by them.

So full of # it's unreal.

Now I could qualify as a homoerotophobe. I do have a strong aversion to gay porn.

Your right, I should start treating them like crap to make you happy.

I don't need a diatribe, I can say what I'm thinking quite succinctly.



because then you don't actually have to spend time thinking about the things we say.


I have thought about the myriad of "reasonable disagreements" and I have yet to be convinced what is reasonable about them.


Maybe you could put it in terms that make sense where others before you have trodden and decided to go with words like "mental" "repulsive" and "abomination".

I think gays are a genetic abnormality.
I'm not scared of gays but don't tell me it's right.
That being said I believe they should have equal rights.

So if I'm homophobic, well so be it. I'll sleep fine tonight.

You could start by not describing homosexuals as repulsive.

But you're probably not man enough to do that.

In fairness I find 99% of cosmetic surgeries to also be "repulsive" and an "abomination". If you were not in a fire, nasty accident, skin cancer, any other manner of insert tragedy here, surgery is butchery. That does not make it a phobia.

Why bother? You've just labeled me as a homophobe. That hardly signals anything reasonable or open minded about you from the start.

Not to mention the use of diatribe which carries connotations all its own.

Your biases are showing.

Didn't say you were a homophobe. I said if you have a problem with the way someone is born you are ignorant. It's not a lifestyle choice. The way you dress is a choice who you are attracted to is not a choice!

You have an aversion to cosmetic surgery...
That's a phobia.


I don't care if you disagree, the Oxford English Dictionary takes precident over your feelings.

Phobia means fear - Source

I am sick of these "phobia" buzz words, islamophobic, xenophobic, transphobic, homophobic... it is ridiculous, in fact it is beyond ridiculous! Arachnophobia involves primal fear! The entire idea of a phobia involves primal fear! I would be willing to bet 99 times out of 100 the person accused of insert inane pseudo phobia here has absolutely zero fear of this "phobia"! So my PC "friends", let come up with a new word shall we??? That way I can avoid having to invent a new word for hating PC ###hats!

Rant over!


My diagnosis is that you are a Phobiaphobic.

Again, you and the MSM are labeling people without justification.

Keep going and watch how the voters vote in November
