I'm a part of the LGBTQ+ community, and if you are against the LGBTQ+ community, then what are you doing here? I'm not saying you have to love diversity, I'm saying that if you dislike LGBTQ+ then you are free to do so, I can fully respect that, but not if you express your discontent with the LGBTQ community in a harmful way. I briefly argued with a homophobe, and I'm going to paste my reply here because if you're a homophobe, please read this and reconsider. Try to understand what you hate/dislike:

///Oh, great, a homophobe, it's been a while since I last saw one of you...
Ok, here's the deal girl, or dude, or whatever pronoun you want me to call you by; there are a couple of hundred species on earth that can be homosexual, homophobia exists only in one, can you guess which species it is? Yes, it's the human race, the human race is the only species on earth that can exhibit the trait of being homophobic.
Here are a few sites I found with a quick search in my URL:
1,500 Animal Species Practice Homosexuality (it's from 2011 so it's a bit outdated)
Do Animals Exhibit Homosexuality? (This page was last updated 2012)
List of animals displaying homosexual behavior (this page was just updated yesterday)
How many species on earth can be homosexual? (I don't know when this got updated last but here ya go)
Those were only 4 of the many pages I found and bothered to actually click on.
Homosexuality is natural.
I accept people who are homophobic, but I don't accept the way they express their disgust and/or hate towards homosexuals. And if you dislike Alex and Altair in a romantic relationship, then why did you bother replying to my comment? The picture does not display them being romantically interested with one another, I just ship them, you are free not to, but in that case; why did you bother replying to my comment?
Please do enlighten me, I am very curious.///
(The links I linked I cannot link here for some reason, but just believe me that those pages exist and I didn't even use google to find them, I used Ecosia) People all over the world get bullied, get mauled, get tortured, get killed, all because they are attracted to another gender other than the gender that is their opposite. Personally; I think humanity became so scared of homosexuality because some priest figured out that homosexuality would prevent people from reproducing and that could lead to the extinction of our species. Well, you know what? Straight people fuck and reproduce faster than rabbits do, we are not going to go extinct even if 50% of the planet's population suddenly becomes homosexual. Or it could simply be the power someone lacks in their life that they think they gain by bullying others because of their differences.
And another thing, homophobes/racists/nazis and all of those who think there are several types of different species within the human species: you are stupid. There are only one species of human, and just because someone else has a different skin color than yours is probably because of where their forefathers came from. People from central Africa or something like that have dark skin because of the sun; they have stronger skin because of the amount of sun and heat where they live that they are exposed to. If someone has a different sexuality than yours, it is probably because of a chemical difference in their bodies (more/less testosterone/estrogen).
I, myself, am a nazis' WORST nightmare. Their picture of a "clean" human is;
3) No mental disorder
4) White skin and do not belong to any indigenous group
I break ALL of those 4 points!
1) I'm not Christian
2) I'm not heterosexual
3) I have mental disorder/-s
4) I, myself, am from an indigenous group, and I will tell anyone who's asking from which one I am if I trust them
And that was all I had to say. If you're the same gender as me and you don't want me to jump on you? Don't worry, that is most unlikely to happen. I am mentally/physically unable to feel romantic and/or sexual attraction at first sight. Sorry for the rant, I needed to get that off of my chest.
