"I don't hate gay people, I just can't stand it when they tell me they're gay.."

Does anyone actually agree with this sentiment? Please explain to me why you feel this way. Does it upset you that much that there might be people all over the world that feel love and attraction to a subset of people that you may not empathize with?

Can you explain to me why this upsets you so much
?

Isn't it a bit late to be yelling at chairs?

There are several posters on this board that appear to do so, along with many public figures that have expressed a similar sentiment

Maybe some people just can't help it. Being homophobic isn't a crime, attacking others is a crime.

Every belief is made up of both fact (the explainable) and intuitive feeling (the intuitive feeling that something is this way). The idea that homosexuality is a bad thing (or considering heterosexuality as a bad thing), is not one of the most ridiculous beliefs people have in this day and age. Some people believe any tv is a bad thing, you have all kinds of superstitious beliefs. It's not up to you to get in the face of people who are quietly homophobic. If homophobic means feeling a little uncomfortable around male homosexuality, then I'm homophobic.

I suspect if you wanted explanations, this board wouldn't be the best place to gather them. First, because of the audience. Second, it's too tolerant to allow dissent.

I can agree to it in a way because [...and I could use just about any demographic here] "I don't hate black people, I just can't stand it when they tell me they're black..", ...because it doesn't matter to me. I don't try to see people as anything other than normal people and when they tell me they're gay or black or jewish or muslim it is like they are telling me that this arbitrary thing is the thing on which I should be base my impression of them.

Even in my job as an overnight counselor in a mental health residency, I try not to look at the case files of new residents for like two weeks because I prefer to build an initial impression through my interaction with them and not their diagnosis or the rough patches in their lives that documented way more than the right things that happen in them.

So the racist misanthropic conspiracy nut is also homophobic? Stop the presses!

You must get annoyed dozens and dozens of times every day if you actually go out in the world, then
