And, if you're wondering, my "out of ignorance" reasons? As it turns out, you're gay if you:
- Like rainbows (personally, I think they shouldn't be a symbol of anything. If they must, make it ALL diversity, not just gay/lesbian.)
- Are asexual ("Are you sure you aren't just gay and ashamed?")
- Are transsexual ("Are you sure you aren't just making it easier on yourself?" It applies more if you came out as gay first, but if you like the same-gender/are bisexual it still can)
- At all act like the opposite sex.
- Hug a member of the same sex. (girls do that all the time! what about me is so dagg lesbian?! I'm not even attracted to girls)
Also, the term. "homophobia". phobia=fear. But it isn't used as in "afraid of gays" but "hatred of gays". Do we just have a shortness of suffixes or something? Why couldn't we at least come up with one that's accurate? You can hate something without fearing it, and fear it without hating it. (ex- I love spiders, they're fascinating, do not put me in the same room as one 'cuz I'm a total arachnophobe)
