So I was chatting with a user on Flight Rising and she told me she was homosexual. Alright, I get it. I’m still pretty young and I was never taught about homosexual relationships so for a large portion of my life I was unaware. So when I told her I understood, I just needed to get accustomed to…
nice makin yourself the victim also this post is a train wreck also delete your blog you homophobe
I can’t tell if sarcasm but if it isn’t…
Wow! I spotted the “tumblr-user who ignores the point and calls people names to try and support a moot point!”
… Oh no, I’ve been spotted!
you dont need “time to get used to” the fact your friend is gay
you’d need time to get used to something thats terrible or weird or shocking
but guess what friend!!! gay people exist and are quite common!!! someone being gay isnt terrible or weird or shocking so why would you “need time” to get used to them?
why would who they want to fuck affect you so much. theyre not a completely different person now that they told you theyre gay
By the way, are your tags calling me homophobic or is that just for separation? Just in case: I am bisexual and proud, so no homophobia here! And yeah, sorry for being really sassy/sarcastic earlier.
Is being shocked a negative reaction? Because that’s the reaction in the context. The org author themselves stated that they have never encountered a homosexual because of where they live. (culture)
Thus they are shocked when they hit it, because it’s not the usual.
Just because [thing] isn’t the usual where they live does not make them a hater of [thing]. They haven’t even made an opinion yet of it because it’s something new and different.
A person is blind, so they cannot talk seriously about their favourite color: they’ve never experienced this. So when they can see it, they’re shocked! Does this mean they hate a color? No.
How does this relate?
A person is in the [location], so they do not encounter this orientation; they’ve never experienced this. So when they see it, they’re shocked! Does this mean they hate it? No. It’s just culture differences.
This means they are adapting to the new information that is given to them, which is perfectly human, natural, and not discriminatory in any way.
ok WHERE did op say they never encountered a gay person because of where they lived. tell me exactly where in that paragraph they said it. all they said was that they weren’t taught much about gay people in their childhood. they also never said they were shocked, for that matter.
i said op is homophobic for “needing time to adjust” to their friend being gay. as if someone being gay is a big deal that needs adjusting to.
another thing that should be addressed is that op doesnt understand that “homophobia” is used to mean a hatred of gay people, even if that hatred isnt a literal fear. they’re trying to say that one can’t be homophobic if they don’t literally fear gay people, which is obviously silly
“ I’m still pretty young and I was never taught about homosexual relationships”
Okay, I made a mistake. And I freely admit that I did. But, you’re being very rude even after I apologized, even just looking at you tags and words.
# ”sorry for being really sassy/sarcastic earlier.” fuck off
Yes, because telling to fuck off for apologizing for my rash actions proves that you’re a stable, very reasonable, calm person who I should be having a discussion with in the first place.
Make no mistake, I don’t expect you to accept it the apology. That’s your choice. But telling me to fuck off? No thank you. If you continue to treat me this way, I will leave the conversation. I have better things to do than deal with someone on the internet.
“as if someone being gay is a big deal that needs adjusting to.”
This is where I disagree. You’re jumping to the conclusion of many different possible conclusions. Lets look at what they give us:
They are young, and needed to be informed of this way to live through someone else. They were introduced to it later on, and asked for time to “process” it.
Possible conclusions based off what we were given:
- User may of not personally dealt with this before, therefore needs adjusting (My org conclusion)
- User has dealt with this, but they’re still uncomfortable with the new thing they’ve learnt (which isn’t the same as being homophobic, uncomfortable =/= hate)
- User has dealt with this, but they’re against this way of life (your conclusion)
So we both could be right, when we look at the information presented and possible solutions. and they could be homophobic, but I don’t believe you have enough information/data to make that conclusion quite yet.
