And your comments are a great example of why I no longer comment a lot on these types of things. Unless people toe the liberal/woke party line, you're just a hateful, narrow-minded, homophobic, xenophobic, misogynist bigot.Funny you consider being scared of a minority group 'worse' than not liking them or being against their rights.
As a side note: Being an editor, it's disappointing that many people don't really understand, or properly use, the word "phobia." It means "fear," but it's now equated with any sort of disagreement. Someone thinks immigration law should be enforced—"Xenophobe!" Someone thinks marriage is one man and one woman—"Homophobe!" That's nothing more than a cheap demonization tactic that way too many people have been getting away with for years, usually used because their actual arguments aren't valid. So if you want to go on demonizing people and slapping negative labels on them, have at it, but you're not fooling me.
As to the first part of this sentence: Did you mean to say "being labeled
as being scared of a minority group"? Because I never said I was scared of a particular group; in fact, my point was the opposite—that being against something or someone doesn't make me afraid of them. I'm pretty sure you and I are on opposites sides of several big issues, but I'm not afraid of you, or afraid of engaging with you and discussing those things.
As to the second part: I didn't say anything about "liking" or "rights."
I also have no idea why you are allowed to say things like you don't believe in gay marriage on this site (especially since this thread is not related to that at all).
Because there's only one topic banned from these forums, and it's not gay marriage. Are you wishing to censor me?
As to why I brought it up in this thread, it was because I was accused of a particular phobia, which, in my mind, relates to the larger issue of people being inaccurately accused of various phobias, homophobia being one of the more glaring examples.
But of course you are playing the victim perfectly in your post above.
I was accused of being something I'm not. Do you think false accusations are victimless?
You must love the ads pertaining to good vs evil and persecuted priests.
I can take 'em or leave 'em. Some of them are a bit over the top, and I'm not Catholic, but I do believe that good and evil are real things.
