stop homophobia

@anon 

Firstly, I am well after talking to some people and thank you so much for the message Using one’s identity to diminish others opinion, saying “you have ZERO right to justify it”, “allies don’t speak for us and need to shut the hell up”, name calling, sending anon hate, lying about being blocked and making call-out post in a group are definitely blatant bullying, discrimination, and harassment. Attacking as a group makes people unsafe. Those actions are no different than sexist, racist, and homophobes. And using activism as an excuse is just nasty and disgusting. People that belong to certain identities had probably experienced bullying should know better. Furthermore, they are not babies anymore.


If you haven’t read it, this post where my wisdom anon also said some wise words.


I apologize for the terms used that might sound offensive, but I definitely stand by my views. I believe in equality. I am someone that fights for rights that everyone should be treated as the same individuals. NO ONE is superior to others. Everyone should be able to speak up their opinions no matter you are white or POC, straight or LGBT, man or woman. Everyone can have different feelings towards a statement. Everyone can fight for their rights, but being a POC doesn’t make you a GOD in race issue. Being a woman does not mean that every female issue you say is right. Being LGBT doesn’t mean you can happily call someone a homophobe because you feel like. Yes, being in that category makes you more knowledgeable but whether it is right or not isn’t up to certain people to decide. It is justified by facts and valid points like any other issues. Only GOD can decide whether is right or wrong. Period. 


If anyone believes talking over a queer automatically makes one a homophobe, just continue to be a sheep for the cults and please click the unfollow button. Thank you.


Also, I want to add that writing homophobes characters does not mean a person is homophobic. Writers write different characters. Good guys, villains, grey characters… They can get inspiration from many places. From other people, movies, etc. If anyone thinks homophobic fics are triggering, JUST DON’T READ ONE. No one forces you to read it.

having a gay otp doesn’t make you a lgbtq+ supporter

reading a lot of gay fan fiction doesn’t make you a lgbtq+ supporter

i once knew a girl who spent most of her free time reading gay smut, but she was extremely uncomfortable any time she had to interact with a lesbian because she was afraid they’d hit on her.

that’s not being a supporter. that’s fetishizing homosexuality. 

nobody cares if you ship destiel or johnlock or whatever, if you’re not okay with real life gay people, you’re still homophobic. it’s the same with guys who watch lesbian porn but don’t think that gay marriage should be legal. you can’t fetishize someone’s sexuality like that. that’s not okay and you are the worst kind of homophobe if you do.

Pete Wentz on Androgyny and Sexuality

“I think part of it is ’cause at some point when we were doing this band I was like, “You know what? I’m going to be the most androgynous person that I can possibly be. I’m going to wear girl pants and makeup.” I looked to David Bowie, Mick Jagger, and people like that, and I was like, “That’s what’s missing in all the bands that we’re playing with right now! You need this effeminate edge.” Did Mick Jagger and David Bowie make out? Probably. Who knows? 

And that’s kind of what I was going for, but people took that to the next level. We have a song called “Gay Isn’t a Synonym for the Word ‘Shitty’” [on import versions of Infinity on High], and people take it in a weird way, like no one could ever be pro-gay rights who isn’t gay — which I’m fine with, because it puts the issue in peoples’ heads and forces them to confront it, like, “Can I be into this guy who’s on the cover of Tiger Beat and who I think is gay?” 

But I think sexuality is a lot more ambiguous and more of a blurred line than people make it out to be. People are always like, “It’s black or white,” but I don’t really feel like it is. I feel like people come across all parts of that spectrum. I think there are a lot of people who aren’t necessarily gay or straight or even bi; it’s just whatever moment or mood you’re in, you find different things attractive or cool.”

if you are “uncomfortable” with gay couples, you are homophobic. 

if you call things “gay” as an insult, you are homophobic. 

if two people of the same gender kiss, and you say “ew”, but you wouldn’t do that if they were the opposite gender, you are homophobic. 

because no matter how many times you say “not that there’s anything wrong with that”, you are still repulsed by homosexuality, and that is the definition of homophobia.

Kim Davis will be jailed on contempt charges until she agrees to issue same-sex marriage licenses

BREAKING NEWS!

“Kim Davis, the defiant Kentucky county clerk, was found in contempt of court and taken into federal custody.

U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning ordered Davis, the Rowan County clerk, to be jailed on the contempt charges until she agrees to comply with multiple court orders to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

The judge ordered her held indefinitely because he did not believe fines would be enough to compel her to follow the law.

Her office refused to issue a marriage license to a same-sex couple as recently as Thursday morning, before Davis and her staff closed the office made the half-hour trip from Morehead to Ashland.

Davis, an elected official and Democrat, has argued that she should be exempt from following the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges because she objects to same-sex marriage for religious beliefs.

Four couples have sued Davis, and they asked the federal judge to punish the county clerk by imposing fines against her, saying that she continues to draw a taxpayer-funded salary “for duties she fails to perform.”

“Government officials are free to disagree with the law, but not disobey it,” said U.S. Attorney Kerry Harvey in a statement.”
