Where? October 22, 2007 7:01 AM

Heck, where is there NOT homophobia? I think it's nearly impossible to find any social group on the planet that does not have some degree of homophobia -- it's been conditioned within society. And as a queer myself, I've noticed that sometimes the most homophobic people are gay themselves. Or, perhaps a more appropriate term for those in the business call it: "internalized homophobia". Of course the most harmful and damaging of homophobia in my opinion is the homophobia that begins in the church -- filling children's heads with lies about what 'god' thinks about homosexuality should be a crime. Yet 'christian' groups all over the nation still blatantly demonize homosexuals and everything and anything that is even remotely 'gay'. Which is one of the reasons why I think it is so counter-revolutionary for us queers to buy in to the lies of X-ianity. Yet still, even in Care2, there is a substantial community of 'gay christians' that are not smart enough to figure out that the Jesus myth is nothing but Santa Claus for adults. What made you think there was homophobia is Care2?  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
thanks ........and o my October 22, 2007 8:12 AM

well due to fears i now have i would prefer to only discuss in a pvt format ......... while bringing this idea up i have been accused of flaming ,being a loose thread ,and off topic in a topic i have brought up .. i have been blocked from 2 groups one because i called the group on its homophobia as well as some other issues i saw ......i was invited back to this group if i promised not to attack those posting bible quotes ....and i perceive this as saying come back an put up with the homophobia another group moderator blocked me and said they would allow me to come back if i never brought the topic up again " IS THERE HOMOPHOBIA IN CARE2 GROUPS ???????" mind you this in a group stating it is a glbt rights group ............now i must add here that i wrote to the person asking if that is what they meant no reply from them at this time .......... i am now sure there is homophobia on care2 that is accepted ,not questioned and with no recourse if you are a victim of the practice .......other than joining another group or forming your own .. which seams like a waste of space there is also other issues i am now seeing ......... am i not a human and do i not deserve to not be exposed to hate by those that claim religion as a reason  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
religon is an cage October 22, 2007 3:10 PM

I have witnessed it (and twice before I came out of the closet out of fear of being exposed) participated in it. I admit to that and have been punished beyond measure more than once for these actions. Few people are true friends that seen past the assault inwards to the scared out of his wits homosexual male. To those friends thank you. You have helped me come out and be more man than I could have ever even thought of being three years ago. I make no excuses for my mistakes but now wear them as a badge to show where I was and where I am changing for the better. I pray to those harmed they learn true forgiveness and realize that we all are Persian rugs! Brian r.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Got Your Point October 23, 2007 7:21 AM

Hey Elgin, I got your point, and I DO think it's incredibly homophobic the way these hysterical christians get this ridiculous notion in their heads that just because they are 'believers' that it somehow frees them from criticism because of their superstitious beliefs. The part that is SO sad is when you realized how lost these people can become when swayed away from Truth and taught the Jesus myth insanity. To me it's even a worse form of homophobia than the idea of 'Ex-gay' because many of these people were taught the Jesus myth since they were children, so what you and I see as a massive LIE, others (even some GLBT people) actually believe that tripe. Hey --> Why don't we start a Care2 group called 'Rational LGBT Persons United Against Christianity and Lies'? Perhaps then they would get the point. bob  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
