Not a Homophobe by crimsonsaphire Not a Homophobe by crimsonsaphire
Long story made short: I made a stamp because I saw a couple of gays picking on straights saying that they were better than them so I said on the stamp that they aren't. What I was implying was that no one is better than anyone.
The minute I posted it people were yelling at me calling me a hater and saying how it hurt there feelings. It went on and on until finally I took down the stamp and re-worded it.

I just want to say that not everyone does this but some people need to calm down and figure things out without jumping to conclusions and accusing others about something they did not do.

To me it is sad how everyone seems to be being accused of being a homophobe now because accusing others is a fashion statement. Honestly, grow up! No one is a homophobe just because they disagree on something. I understand that a lot of people are still against gay marriage but that doesn't mean you can take your anger out on others. Its starting to sound like people are hating everyone now online especially straight people.

I also would like to point out that its not a big deal if someone is a homophobe as well as long as they are not hurting everyone, I may not agree with people hating gays but everyone has a right to feel whatever they want to feel as long as they are not hurting anyone else.

Please understand that I myself am not a homophobe but I just want to point it out because I am so sick and tired of that word being used a lot.

I would also want to point out that I was talking sarcastically on the stamp, I know that not everyone is like this and I also know that there are gays who are nice people (I have some friends who are gay and are kind), i'm just saying it feels like this word is used a lot.

I hate the fact that gay people are mistreated, but I hate the fact that straight people are mistreated just the same. Everyone is equal. Just because I'm straight and Christian(I guess?) doesn't mean I hate you. God, I have gay friends! One of my favorite characters from a book is gay! I don't even believe that God would punish gays anyway(I don't believe in all parts of the bible, just some of it). People that hate on straight people is so hypocritical, and it really pisses me off. We should all be respected.

Like when I wanted my straight character to be straight, how does that make me a homophobe? Even though I support GLBT/LGBT (which ever way you wish it to be spelt) rights...They didn't even ask, they just assumed because of that. 

Heck, I even have a few male OCs who are Gay, now (They didn't become gay, they were always gay, I thought I should explain that because the now didn't mean they just became guy right this moment) and a few Bisexual OCs too. 

Assumptions cause a lot of problems.

 I agree that if someone is a true homophobe, that is not a good thing and needs to be dealt with. Hating someone and harassing them over their sexuality destroys countless lives and should in no way be tolerated. 

But to say that if you disagree with a gay person over something is homophobic?! I'm sorry, but if I disagree with someone who is gay over which character in Hunger Games for example is better, calling me homophobic is about as sound a accusation as calling someome racist for disagreeing with someone of a different ethnicity over whether a shade of blue is robins egg or periwinkle.

I think there's been a miscommunication, my bad

when I said "disagree with gay people" I meant "disagree with gay people being gay and living as gay", I should've been clearer

you're totally free to disagree with me on Hunger Games (I'm kind of eh on it personally)

Okay I get what your saying now!! In that case I agree that being a jerk and arguing and disagreeing with someone over their sexual orientation is wrong. 

Lol I like parts of the series, but by the third book I was skimming more then anything. I really liked the ending though.

True.
Somone's anti-gay marriage, but supports civil unions(basically marriage with a different label, from what I understand): Simply a conservative traditionalist, I'll respect your opinion.
Against civil unions: I lose 75%-85% of respect for you, as long as you still have nothing against gays period
Anything else (adoption, GAY AGENDR, etc): Homophobia

The more extreme portion of the LGBT community is insatiable, to the point of "You don't worship us? You're a homophobe, burn in hell while I act oppressed while being well off in my current living situation uwuwuwuwu" It's ridiculous.

I guess I sort of agree. Accusing people of homophobia because they dislike a gay pairing *COUGH* UNDYRUS SHIPPERS DEALING WITH APLHYNE SHIPPERS *COUGH* and other petty things seems to be all the rage nowadays. But if someone genuinely thinks homosexuality is wrong, evil, nasty, etc. They rightfully deserve the title of homophobe.

I know. Once I complained in a blog where the owner actually thought SonicxTails was canon because that pairing would be pedophilic and Sonic was not a pedophile and he and some other person called me a homophobe.

Whereas I actually have no problem with LGBT characters and/or pairings(Hell, I liked Ed Boon's decision to create Kung Jin in MKX), it's just that homosexuality and pedophilia are two very, very different things.

Most people don't hate anyone. God doesn't hate anyone. He hates sin because He's a holy God but because of His great love, mercy and grace, He calls us all to repentance. There's a huge difference between hating the person and hating the sin. If God didn't love us, then we wouldn't be able to be forgiven and set free from the LGBT deception from Satan. Jesus wants to free us all from all of the bondages from Satan. Whether theft, alcoholism, homosexuality, adultry, pornography, drugs and any other sin. Jesus will free us when we turn to Him.

"Phobia" implies that I am afraid of you. I am anything but. 

I just respectfully think you're misguided and participating in just another shade of sexual misconduct (I disapprove of fornication and cohabaitation just as much). That's a million miles from hiding in a corner in fetal position. I don't bash people for it but I do hope and pray they come around before they slowly destroy themselves.

Even though I support same-sex marraige I still think gay weddings shouldn't happen in churches. There's lots of churches which oppose same-sex couples and if they don't want gay weddings on their churches why we have to force them?

I wouldn't get church weddings as well, because I'm Atheist. And I think USA's current wedding law is unfair. If gays can once get married in churches then Atheists and multi-cultural couples should be allowed to get married in churches as well.

So, you think just because someone tries to prevent gay people from having equal rights, they're not homophobic and you shouldn't say they are.

Then you go on to sa ythat some people are homophobic, but you think that's fine.

Here's the thing.  Gay people don't have the same basic human rights you and I enjoy.  We need to fix that.

Im not trying to pick a fight here, but homophobes are judged by their opinions and how they express them. Some homophobes will try to harm others by their words, especially by picking on one certain person who is LGBT+ or a LGBT+ supporter. Others keep their opinions to themselves, which means they really arent homophobes, but they are still against it. Yet, I still agree with you on the part that everybody is randomly getting accused of being a homophobe due to their statements.
Homophobia encompasses a range of negative attitudes and feelings toward homosexuality or people who are identified or perceived as being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). (taken from wikipedia.) Yes, it is possible to be a "unharmful homophobe" (yes, i know unharmful isnt a word.) by keeping your opinions to yourself, but nowadays theres lots of people who express their opinions against LGBT+ people in a very disrespectful and negative way. 
I also agree that its not a very big deal if somebody is a homophobe, unless they are bullying others who are LGBT+ supporters or LGBT+ people themselves.
Just wanted to state my opinion here.

Um with the whole thing about homophobics not hurting anybody, its the homophobes who usually reject their children, try to force them to change, and as a result push their kids to suicide. So yah in a way the extreme end does hurt people. Personally you don't have to support it you just have to tollerate it.

Right now in my home state, people who are gay can be fired just because they're gay.  Similarly, they can be evicted or denied commercial services or expelled because they're gay and the person doing that to them could go on TV and explain tat they were doing it because they're gay, and it would still be completely legal.

There are also public officials who deny the rights of gay people to be married and to have the child custody, tax, medical, and inheritance benefits that come with that.

Let's be honest, it's also not uncommon for a gay person to be physcically attacked and beaten because they're gay. 

So you can claim you don't "hate" these people, but you're actively supporting a system where gay people are deprived of rights, safety, property and humanity.
