I'm not, never have been. Actually until a certain age I thought it was normal bussiness 'cause I went to two weddings when I was little: one was a 'regular' wedding and the second was a 'gay' one.

I personally I've never seen the problem. It's natural and as long as they love eachother and it's a healthy relationship, what is it to other people what they do with their love lives? I mean there's so much hate already, why hate love? And it's not even like people choose who they like O.o

I do know people though, like my niece, who dislike same-sex relationships. Not bad people per say, it just uncomfortable for them. I don't mind that, but it changes the moment they go treat them differently, bad mouth them or even bully or attemp violence.

On the other hand I don't like it when gay people -man in particular- take on this persona and excagerate things. It feels forced. I have a friend who did this after his class found out his sexual preferences and he started being picked on. Soon he changed his demenour, acting overly feminine, speaking in a different tone of voice, in a different manner. It was quite ennerving to see him change like that in a matter of weeks. Only when he's not in public he seems to act like his old selve. Kinda like he's hiding under a different kind of mask now. Hence why I don't like it.

Ack, nuuuuuu, why did he have to change? ;A;
From what I suppose, I'm pretty sure there are some type of homophobics that take it too seriously, insulting and bashing gays and lesbians and all that. Those are bad people in my definition.
I'm not saying they cannot speak their opinion out loud but when you start to hurt someone, that's just the line where you have to stop. You can be homophobic or not but there is a line where you don't have the right to cross over.

Again, I agree everyone has the right to speak their opinion but just no hurting anyone, please? ;3;

I agree with everything Yanguchitzure said. People like to jump to conclusions, because we're people. 

If we as a human race are meant to get along we need to base each other off something that we all can have. And that is character and integrity. We can't all have the same melanin levels, or the same height, weight, abilities, talents, skills, sexuality, wealth, health, intellect, background or life style. But we all can have character. The more we gear ourselves to judge on character and not on any of those other things we can better get along Llama Emoji-60 (Snug or Hug) [V3].

People are not perfect, there is always going to be injustice and prejudice, but creating more of it won't make it go away. And it won't go away completely either. You soften hearts with kindness, not blaming, calling names and condemning others. Condemning and hating people as a whole just because they disagree and calling them hateful just for disagreeing doesn't help anyone's cause.

Totally agree with everything she said too XD Personally, I say everyone has the right to have an opinion and stick with it. To me, it doesn't matter if your opinion makes you homophobic, as long as you're nice to me, I'll be nice to you back~

Aaah, how do I phrase this? It's really just the way you look at the word? I don't see the problem with being labeled "homophobic" either, like I said to Yanguchitzure. It only becomes a problem when you either take the wrong way or they say it like an insult. I mean, people are so different, some people can take 100 insults a day and never stop smiling, some just can't Shrug 

So basically, I'm just saying that, yes, "homophobic" isn't a label anyone should insult. The same thing with the label "gay", "bisexual", "lesbian" and so on. But there is nothing wrong with the label. There is only something wrong with it if you feel that there is something wrong with it.

//End rant o3o

I find it very disturbing that people think they're so entitled to other peoples' lives that they need to make their love life their own personal issue. As long as the people in the relationship are both of age, consenting to the relationship, and are not being abusive towards each other, people need to keep their opinions to themselves and stop trying to stifle love with their hatred, IMO. I'm usually very laidback about people having different opinions but homophobia invalidates, hurts, and endangers and entire group of people for something that's as much of a choice as their gender or skin tone, and that's not okay.

Hmmm, you mean you don't like the label "homophobic" right? O: Just asking to clarify 'cause sometimes I understand things very slowly XD
Well y'know us humans, we just gotta have a name for everything I guess o3o

That is correct, I don't.

People like to create names for people they don't agree with. Most humans have some kind of name for ones they see as different from them, whether it's really an accurate name or not. The mass grouping of people who may even only agree on ONE thing, it happens all the time.^^'

There are many many phobias that have strange names :'D Like that one where you're afraid of holes o3o

I think it's just human nature to give everything a name and label so we can address them as a group, not having to name them one by one... I know the "homophobic" title can be somewhat hurtful but even if I do have a friend that is homophobic, I don't see it as a problem. I can still be friends with them, just because we can't talk about the latest yaoi manga or something like that doesn't mean I have to hate them and they have to hate me ovo'

What I'm trying to say is that labels happen all the time and it's up to people to decide how they want to react to them. But personally, if my friends were to hate gays and lesbians, I would never snap at them D:

People are different, and so I guess everyone is doing their best to classify every type of person so they can understand humans better. Maybe even understand themselves better...
Look at me going in to rant mode jkhflakjfhdsakjfhls wtf

Yeah I guess that's true :'D Some people can take it better than others, all I know is that everyone thinks differently about someone who is "homophobic". Personally I find people can vary even though they all fit under one label. It starts to turn into a bad thing when everyone supposes that "oh, a homophobic is a bad person. Period. No argument." D:

But to me, if I have a friend that's homophobic, I don't find it bad at all XD Just switch the topic~
I suppose if you're saying to get rid of all the labels that are hurtful, then that would mean getting rid of the words "gay", "lesbian", "black" etc etc. 'Cause those can be hurtful words/labels too. It really depends on the person and how they take it. There is really nothing wrong with these labels in particular, it's only wrong when you think it's wrong, in my opinion :'D

I dunno, I've haven't been in this world long enough to know as much. I tend to want to stay neutral to everything ;v;

Well then that is very true O: I usually float from side to side 'cause in debatable topics like this, both sides have very good points OTL
Maybe people should change the word into something else? Or maybe get rid of it all together D: 

You think that would be a bad thing for the English dictionary? Shrug It's not something I use or think about every day, pretty sure all of us could live without that classification o3o
Now that I think of it, it does sound like a very unbalanced word. Compared to "gay", "lesbian" and "black", people can literally be proud of that label but I don't see how some people could be proud of being "homophobic" D:
And yeah, I totally agree that because I've been on the internet for a long time, I've started to be a little more open-minded about things XD It's really cool to learn about WHY others think like that. You just get the chance to sit back and think~

EDIT: Also, can I just feature all of your comments 'cause they are just brilliant omg
