    Homophobia: How much of a problem is it?

    Your thinking of the racism thread I thought I'd do one on something which is also stereotypical such homophobia.

    Yes, he's saying that your copying that other thread.

    Anyways, for mine the most obvious example of ingrained homophobic behaviour is when people use the term "gay" to describe something bad, stupid, lame, etc.

    For me it's when they use the word gay as an insult.

    Catch myself doing that sometimes, I really should know better tbh.

    Anyways, re: the thread title, it rears its ugliest head in the gay marriage debate as an implied reason of why certain people take certain sides.

    One of the last commonly acceptable prejudices, and causes so much pain unnecessarily. Honestly, who gives a monkey's what two consenting adults do with each other...

    Yes but this isn't a debate about wether it's right or wrong it's a debate on how much of a problem homophobia is.

    Gay marriage is the obvious one, as Gelman said. Compare it to objecting to interracial marriage or secular marriage, and the sort of stir that would cause. It's an absolutely indefensible issue, and yet the majority of people in a number of prominent liberal democracies continue to support it.

    And certainly, it's a lot more socially acceptable to just not like gay people than to, say, not like Asians.

    Not in my area in my area we were talking about people taking over l.f.c and I said "I heard this asian bloke's richer than abramohovich" T which one kid replied "I don't care we shouldn't let a **** own our club."

    From an entirely selfish perspective, I wouldn't say it was much of a problem unless you were actually homosexual.. For some reason, I don't get offended by it like I do racism..

    I'm pretty deadset against homosexual unions and adoption, so perhaps it's just as a result of my very conservative viewpoint..

    When you say homosexual unions do you mean groups like the i g l h r c.
