I see "homophobe" all the time, and that's fine? But no one ever says "heterophobe", that's strange.
What the hell is a hetrophobe?
Even the most flaming gay flamer with rainbows shooting out of their chest likes straight people...someone has to breed.
Plus, if someone criticizes say, Christianity, does that automatically mean they are a closet-Christian? No....
Arguably...a skeptic is quite often a closet wannabe believer, but they require solid proof.
hense why they are always discussing and demanding to see proof...a desire to believe in something, but not without their watermark of facts.
So how the heck are people connecting "criticizing something" with "secretly supporting it"? This is the lamest excuse of all, by far. It's such
a fad to repeat but it actually has no legitimate basis at all and is an insult. Highly inaccurate as well.
This is psychology 101
You can not like something, sure...I personally don't like homosexual acts and seeing a couple guys kiss sort of weirds me out still, hense why I
tend to look away when I see it.
However, when you have a core reaction that effects you personally enough to breathlessly try and oppose something, chances are, your deflecting
something...its a personal attack on you (as only personal attacks against you can effect you to such an extent)
China kills whales...that sucks
China wants to kill your dog specifically...oh HELL NO!
See, it effects you personally
So, some gay guy kisses another gay guy...and you have the oh HELL NO reaction...that means it effected you personally, and if you let your logic go a
little bit, then you know what its effecting...your sense of sexual attraction..something is attacking that and your defending it, and you only defend
things you feel is not strong enough to stand.
Countless examples of how humans react strongly to things that effect them personally..its a simple science...dislike, sure...passionately hate? only
if it effects you.
I find the playing field totally uneven here. And the information is also skewed and inaccurate.
The playing field is diminishing because education in western society is progressing past the black and white false mindset of the 50s and instead
progressing into an actual understanding of the human condition
aka, there are less morons around that know how to use a computer.
When I criticize the Government does that mean I secretly support them?
I think everyone supports the concept of government, and the more we want it to work well, the louder we scream when it works poorly...because we
expect more. But this is a strawman argument, so moving on...
How about if I criticize rapist or murderers, does that mean I am secretly a rapist or murderer?
We all are, or have the capability of becoming one. Can you criticise someone whom -wants- to murder someone, or considered just taking the easy route
and rapeing someone? no...they are just thinking, its when they do it is when its a problem..
But both acts are criminal and hurt others unwillingly, so another strawman argument. This is more about if someone had consensual sex and you were
flipping out about that (because being anti-gay is just that)..ya, that is a bit odd actually.
Give me a break people. Enough with this nonsense.
Ahh, but without nonsense, what would we do on this fine saturday?
Sorry for the book, waiting for my drive to finish a sweep.
