People who claim they aren’t homophobic but use the word gay as a slur «««<
Smh at my mothers ignorant comment.
My dad was walking around our street and a lesbian couple, who lives on the same street and whom we know, asked my dad that he should come have dinner with them. My dad told my mom and I this when he got back and my mother was like “NO!” I already knew what she was implying. I asked “Why not?” and she said “It’s just sick!”. Now a couple of posts back on my blog I confessed I think I am bisexual and in that post I stated that my mom is a major homophobe. I LOVE my mom dearly, she is my best friend, but when it comes to gay issues and homosexuality she turns into an ignorant asshole. My mother doesn’t know about my sexuality, and she never will, but when we get into debates over the LGBT community and equal rights, I always come out on top (this is the only argument I know I can win over her). Of course when I say my point and turn her words against her she dodges the subject. smh. My mother is a major Bible thumper, but not as extreme as some. She ALWAYS quotes the scripture where it says marriage should be between a man and woman and homosexuality is a sin (I’m paraphrasing here). Now I love God/Jesus and I pray to Him all the time but I get sooo sick of people using the Bible against the LGBT community. I can find a lot of stuff in the Bible and use it against them. People, including my mother, are hypocrites. How are you gonna say that Blacks,Hispanics, Asians, Middle Easterns, etc. don’t deserve to be discriminated against, and need to have equal rights, yet you are doing/saying the total opposite with the LGBT community?! My mother grew up in the Civil Rights Era. She dealt with racism, ignorance, and so on, but when it comes to LGBT rights she seems to forget what it was like to be judged, hated, and discriminated against just because of the color of her skin. This is no different when it comes to sexual orientation. People like to praise God and say we should love everybody, but in their minds everybody excludes lesbians, bi’s, gays, and transgenders. The God I know loves ALL of us despite color, sexual orientation, etc. because we are all God’s children! People need to stop being such ignorant hypocrites and get a reality check!
