We respect you by Sanslet0n We respect you by Sanslet0n
Edit: Wow, this is getting hate even though this is an lgbt positive stamp. I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

Edit #2: Okay yeah that comparing homosexuality to smoking thing wasn't the best comparison. I've removed that part of the description.

- rant ahead -


So, one thing that really pisses me off is when people assume you hate gay people just because you're Christian. I'm sure every Christian has had someone assume this about them. Sure, some "Christians" may claim to hate them and want to kill them, but they aren't real Christians. One of the ten commandments say "thou shall not kill". If God loves everyone, then so should Christians. 

I know Christians in the past have done horrible things to gay people, but guess what? That was in the past. People who bring this up look equally as stupid as the feminists who say all men are responsible for what some men did to women 100 years ago.

Sure, some Christians may disagree with the act of homosexuality, but that doesn't mean they want gays to be oppressed or seen as inferior to straight people. As a Christian, I am all for gays being free to go in public without fears of being harassed or killed. I respect gay people just as much as I would respect a straight person, because hating someone for one aspect about them that doesn't even affect you is incredibly stupid.

No joke, I've had people assume I want gays to be oppressed just because I respect those Christians who peacefully disagree with the act of homosexuality. Like.....what the heck??? The stupidity of SJWs never fail to amaze me. Apparently, in order to be a "true LGBT supporter", you need to attack anyone who has an opinion differing from you, even if they're peacefully stating it.

I just wanted to rant about this, it's been bothering me for a while.

True, so true. Christians should love LGBT people. But it doesn't mean they should support and accept their lifestyles. We should defend them, again, not support their way of choice. We don't hate you. Yes, it looks like it but it's not the case.

The Bible is seriously so big on loving other people, but "Christians" like to take a few sentences and pieces of scripture that says "hey, don't be gay" and put THAT above one of the Bible's main themes. It just makes no sense to me.

I'm pansexual, but I'm still harassed regardless simply because of my faith. Apparently being Christian means you're stupid, crazy, or someone who belongs in a mental institution simply because they don't think you have the right to your own religious freedom.
Now I know this is normal after hearing the prophecy of God's return. Christians and Atheists may end up hating each other during this time.

My granny is a Christian, and doesn't agree with homosexuality, but there's a hairstylist in my hometown who does my aunt's and my mom's hair when he's working. When my granny sees him, you know what she does?

She stands up and gives him a hug, because she loves him as a person.

THAT'S what Christians should do.

"Everywhere I go, I hurt someone
But there's nothing I can say
to change the things I've done
I was childish and raged at a person
Who has done nothing wrong
But from my heart, I say this
After crying long

diamondtapir, I am sorry
I forgot you are a human
and I am sorry
I thought I was diplomatic,
but I hurt you instead
I feel great sorrow, and inside
I'm feeling like I'm dead

Can you forgive my mistakes?
If not, that's fine, too
You're allowed to hate me
But I wish that you saw this
Can we live our lives in peace?"

Nevermind the homophobia in the Bible proper. Fuck that "but REEEAAAL Christians don't do that" bullshit. Real Christians have done bullshit on behalf of the Bible. Also respecting homophobes who "disagree" with gay people's existing is fucking horrible. You don't support us if you support homophobes. Disagreeing with gay people existing as gay people isn't a harmless opinion. And of course you're complaining about SJWs, lmao.
Also using the word "h*mosexual" just shows how out of touch the person who made this stamp is.

Listen, OP, you're probably a kid. I have a hunch about that. Let me tell you this: Christians disagreeing with people being gay (aka the supposed "act" of h*mosexuality) is homophobia and it is harmful. "Peacefully" disagreeing with people existing isn't peaceful, and respecting homophobes is not supporting LGBT people. Most "SJWs" are just people with critical thinking skills and basic empathy who don't just mindlessly agree with the internet hivemind. It is important to recognize the harmful things certain groups have done because it still effects us. Christians have been doing harmful stuff to gay people since forever and still do, and men have been doing harmful stuff to women and still do. Just pretending that this stuff doesn't happen today is just naive and foolish. H*mosexual is considered a derogatory word today to describe gay people, so please just call gay people gay and lesbians lesbians. If you really want to be supportive, you should be open to listening.

Homosexual isn't a slur. It's the actual scientific name for it, just like heterosexual is the scientific word for straight.

The h slur was a word coined to medicalize being gay and heterosexual people never had to fight for the right to not be called het. Gay people specifically want to be called gay and lesbian. Like, even if it wasn't a slur (and it's recognized as one, because it is) is it really so hard not to call gay people the word they don't want to be called?

Actually, the proper term used by Psycologists back then was Inverted Sexuality. The idea was that their sexuality was flipped from what was normal.

Homosexual was termed from a German man, Karl-Maria Kertbeny, trying to legalize homosexuality in Prussia and several other countries.

It wasn't coined by a homophobe, but it was thence used violently by homophobes to make it sound like a medical condition. Gay and lesbian people back then literally wanted to be called gay and lesbian... Those were terms created by the community; self-chosen. The perception was that their sexuality was inherently sexual, and gay and lesbian people didn't want that connotation in their name. 

Just don't call people the h slur. I promise you gay and lesbian people are gonna be happy being called gay and lesbian. If some people consider it a slur IDK why you'd all want to argue up and down about how you should be able to call 'em it anyways.

Hm, pride in words is good, but some words have bad connotations and just shouldn't be used if you aren't part of the group who was targeted by said word. You're bi, so I don't think you should be using the h slur uncensored, even in conversation like this.

I guess you assume I'm gay cause I'm saying the h slur is a slur. Nah, I'm bi and autistic too. I just know the h slur has an extremely bad history, I know a lot of gay people dislike being called it by default and I see a lot of people (mostly straight people though, which figures) using it as if it's just a noun. It's kind of like the q slur in some ways. They're both words people are expected to label with in some cases that many people just don't wanna be called. Some words just shouldn't be used as an umbrella term. People should be able to proudly identify with whatever label they can use, but nobody should be labeled something without their consent.

It's pretty refreshing though to actually get to discuss with another LGBT person with this. The last time somebody discussed this with me, it was with three straight Christian homophobes who liked to project their own bigotry onto me.

It was used by violent homophobes to pathologize gay people by saying they were ill and the like. A lot of gay people find the word offensive and don't want to be described by it, so it's best not to use the word if you're not gay and it's always best not to use it to describe all gay people. You can find some articles online that will go into much more detail. I am bi, not gay, so I cannot tell you from experience why the word is bad, just the explanations I have heard from gay people. It's considered a slur because of it's history.

H*mosexual is a slur, or at the very least considered distasteful for modern use. There are lots of LGBT people who don't want to be described as "queer", just  as how there are many gay people who don't want to be described as h*mosexual. I hope you respect that. Also being gay isn't a lifestyle. If someone disagrees with my existence, then does it matter if they "hate me" or not? They're still an asshole who doesn't want gay people to exist as gay (I.E., themselves.) My sexuality isn't a lifestyle. Nobody's sexuality is a lifestyle. LGBT people do not inherently live differently than anyone else. This is not a choice that somebody can just disagree with. This is something inherent that is literally bigoted to disagree with. Would you think it okay for people to just "disagree" with the adjective-lifestyle of any other minority?

I can understand not liking the word "queer," but "homosexual" is the clinical and scientific term. Even if there are people out there who genuinely do use it derogatorily, all that banning that word will accomplish is make them replace it with another word (and, come to think of it, it will also just give them another word with which to annoy you).  As I like to point out, words and phrases are only insults or swears so long as they're treated as such.


Look at it this way. Suppose some guy starts robbing his City's banks while wearing a ski mask, and City hall responds by banning ski masks.  Do you think that's going to stop him, or do you think he'll just wear some other sort of mask?

diamondtapir Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2018
Yeah, the clinical and scientific term defined by straight people to pathologize gay people. Look, you don't have to agree, all you have to understand is that lots of gay people find the term offensive and don't want to be labeled by it. People are going to come up with more slurs no matter if people stop using the h slur or not. All I'm saying is that at the very least we could respect gay people's feelings and not label them by default with a term not all of them like. It's the very same logic for why you shouldn't label all LGBT people as queer. Maybe the next time a slur is created we can, as a society, react to it better instead of making it socially acceptable to say and synonymous with the very group it was used against.

I'm not in the mood for another whole pointless debate where you inevitably call me an evil queer for saying apparently controversial things like, "slurs are bad" and "you shouldn't disagree with people's existences." You can clearly see this was discussed elsewhere, so there's no point for you to come here and try to start a redundant discussion. If you're a straight person, I would especially not like to start a discussion with you because I have been dealing with two straight people demonizing me because I'm saying they're apologizing a brand of homophobia I dealt with growing up and they clearly have no empathy for that. Please. I'm not trying to be mean, but I would like to not do this again.

3 out of 4 stamps are made by a gay person, so your comment is unreasonable.

"homosexual
ˌhɒmə(ʊ)ˈsɛkʃʊəl,ˌhəʊmə(ʊ)ˈsɛkʃʊəl/
adjective
adjective: homosexual
  1. 1.
    sexually attracted to people of one's own sex.
    • involving or characterized by sexual attraction between people of the same sex.
      "homosexual desire"
noun
noun: homosexual; plural noun: homosexuals
1.
a person who is sexually attracted to people of their own sex.
synonymes: gay, lesbian, gay person"

Acient Greek ὁμός (homo; same) + Latin sexus (sex) = homosexual
A slur huh by tultsi93

If you think your own sexual orientation is offensive, go burn all science books. They use term homosexual, both as an adjective and as a noun. And how it's offensive again? Is it because there's word homo in it? Are homoromatic and homoerotic
also slurs? Here comes a little fun fact for you: Gay and lesbian are also used in offensive manner in our society. So, according to that logic, you shouldn't be called anything. Stop erasuring your sexual orientation. It's so homophobic. Wanna see slurs? Go check this list. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category…

The definition to homophobia is "dislike of or prejudice against homosexual people", not disagreeing with homosexuality. People are allowed to disagree with homosexual lifestyle as much as they want. Disagreement doesn't hurt you, killing hurts you. I've even met people who support gay marriage, even though homosexuality is against their morals. I disagree with Islam and its ideologi a lot. I don't still hate Muslims, because I believe in Freedom of Religion. As long they don't hurt anyone and obey the laws of the 1st world country they're living in, I let people do whatever they want. Get to know people first before judging.

One gay person does not speak for all gay people, just like how one LGBT person saying queer isn't a slur does not speak for all LGBT people, some of which do not want to be described using that word.

Also here are a few links telling you why h*mosexual is a derogatory word, since you like showing me definitions like that changes something: www.google.com/search?q=homose…
Wikipedia also mentions that it is considered distasteful to use.

I like how you're trying to guilt me, a person you think is gay (I'm bi), into accepting a word considered to be a slur by calling me homophobic for... Not accepting a word that many recognize to be a slur. You're a hypocrite for using that "queer is a slur" stamp while also trying to force me to accept a word that has been use to pathologize gay people. Also one of the things on that list is "no h*mo", which has the derogatory word h*mo in it which stems from the word h*mosexual. Why do you think that phrase is included on the list, genius? It isn't even a complete list of words so... What are you trying to prove? 

Disagreeing with the existence of gay people is, guess what, prejudice! If you disagree with a person existing, then you're an asshole who doesn't like a certain type of person. "Disagreement" can lead to people getting hurt, getting discriminated against, people killed, because people who disagree with the existence of certain minorities can be violent about it, especially if being a certain kind of minority is against religious morals. What part of, "it is bad to disagree with the existence of living, thinking, feeling human beings" do you not understand? Disagreeing with Islam is also not disagreeing with Muslims existing, so not comparable. A religion is an ideology, and being gay isn't. Try again.

You say that you're LGBT friendly on your profile, but so far that just seems to be words since you seem to be just fine with people disagreeing with the existence of gay people and using derogatory words against them. Also you're straight, so where do you get off thinking that your opinion means anything on this subject? Why is it your first reaction to a LGBT persons saying, "this word is a homophobic slur" is to, as a straight person, say, "no it's not! You're homophobic for thinking so!"? A cishet person tried to guilt me, a LGBT person, into liking a homophobic slur by calling rejecting it erasure. Wild. Do you think saying shit like that is progressive or something? It's not.

Pretty sure that if she thought gay people didn't exist then she wouldn't be arguing, say, that "It's okay to call them homosexual," she'd be arguing, you know, that "Gay people don't exist."  Life advice #452: don't read into other people's words any more than you intend for them to read into your own.
