the thing with straight people is that even those who don’t seem homophobic ARE. case in point: there’s a butch lesbian at my work who is a pain to work with. she’s lazy and increases the workload of those around her. a straight workmate, who i previously really liked and seemingly was cool w lesbians (shes nice to me and i’m one), takes this as an opportunity to call her a man behind her back. to talk about how “ugly” her and her girlfriend are. she says this to me, a lesbian. they say to me “you don’t look like a lesbian, i wouldn’t have guessed”.
see, it may be more frowned upon to act on your homophobia in 2016 than it was 50 years ago - but the homophobia is STILL THERE. whether it’s “progressive” people telling lesbians to fuck dicks, or straights believing they can justify outright homophobic things if gay people piss them off; homophobia just manifests DIFFERENTLY, and if you think gay people in anyway have it easy, you’re fucking wrong.
