No. I agree it's a #ty comic, but that isn't what you should be concentrating on. It shows the contradiction in the way many gay people think. They want the majority to accept them and respect them, but then they go on a gay rampage on the streets of many cities around the world to show how gay they are. There is no need to do that and the public doesn't like it at all. That's not a way to get accepted...

I'm with you on that one. I don't CHOOSE to be repulsed by homosexual behavior, it comes naturally.

No its absolutely NOT possible.
You will be hunted down by the gay community as they try to convince you to like them OR at least understand and accept them, OR just maybe they will say how screwed up you are not liking them - they are like a raging band of mosqitoes at your BBQ.
for some odd reason its OK to be gay, but NOT OK to dislike them

No it irritates me when ever straight couples are all over each other in public too... I mean you dont see straight couples making out in supermarkets as a rule...so for your gay daughter and her girlfriend to do that only highlights how some gay people feel a need to make a public statement...to show the world how gay they are...straight couples who make out in public do it for the same reasons, usually one of them is highly insecure and wants the world to see they have a partner. Most regular people do not feel a need to make a show of themselves in public.
Yeah, my boyfriend is very PDA and not shy about it, but I on the other hand believe that certain things remain private between a couple. A quick smooch is ok, but leave the rest for privacy. So on that note, no, I don't care to see gays or straights kissing and all that in public.

Funny story, while out with friends, a group of men were on line for the theater just in front of us. Some of them were very flamboyant. What's flamboyant? Loud, sexually suggestive remarks every two seconds, feminine clothing, mannerisms (swishing in and out of line) even smells, I could go on, but there was just no mistake, they were advertising and putting on a show and being especially vocal about how if people didn't like it, they're just repressed.
I made a remark to my friends that I didn't like those kind of people. I was immediately accused of being a homophobe. This despite never having talked about the subject to them in our entire time knowing each other. The funny part was that while we were discussing it, the guys we were talking about picked up on it and confronted us, I unashamedly explained why I didn't like it, and to my surprise, one of their group said he didn't like it either and actually defended me, while others from both groups started in on the why I'm such a bad man.
By the time we were allowed in, we were all getting along and talking with each other just fine. Why? because I explained that ANY man acting that way would be annoying to me, whether they were gay or not. Same holds true for other groups, it's the BEHAVIOR most people dislike, not the person's sexual preference, race etc.
So am I a homophobe?
Gay Pride is not the LGBTQ community feeling accomplished or boastful about their sexual orientation, and it is not about parades and rainbows. It is about creating a safe space for LGTBQ members to commune together in support of each other, it is about welcoming those outside our community to join us and learn who we are to educate away the stereotypes, and most of all it is about personal strength. It means that I have overcome the shame, the ridicule, and the discrimination I once associated with being myself. It means I have allowed myself to transcend how other people’s insecurities affect me when revealing my orientation. And it means that I am proud that I have chosen to be honest with myself and others about who I am, that I will make no apologies for it, and that I will continue to be happy and successful by my own standards because I choose to do so everyday.
