I guess people are just scared of being gay? (homophobic?)
I think it's really stupid. I mean in AUS, an old childrens song had words changed from "gay" to "happy" to make sensitive people feel better, even though the words had said "gay" for decades.
And Fairy Penguins had their name changed to Little Penguins.

Nah, it's not so bad San. It's not like people look down on me because they think I'm gay. It's just that I fit the image. If some of you nice people on the board saw me in person you might think I looked gay too. I just look the stereotype and act it a little too.

But, your point is well taken that many places in the US homophobia is a big problem. Check out this online game/test that tests if you are racist, sexist, homophobic, etc. The results aren't totally conclusive of course, but interesting nevertheless. Post your results if you take the tests.

I went ahead and took the test about attitudes toward different religions. My results were that I was slightly less fond of Christianity when compared to Islam, Buddhism, and Judaism. The other three ranked equal right above Christianity.

edit: And according to the homophobia test, I have a moderate automatic preference for straight people over gay people! This doesn't actually mean I favor straights over gays btw. It means that my automatic responses to images and words associated with gay/straight people shows an automatic, unconscious preference toward straight people. This could be because of the images I see in the media, familiarity (or not) with the two groups, and my relationships with gay people I know first-hand etc etc.

Now you guys try. And do be honest about the results...

@wiggles: Ah, how sad. Thanks for taking it anyway.

@Blue: The quizzes are titled "project implicit". A basic google search will get it for you if the link doesn't work.

Maybe you would like the race/ethnicity or straight/gay test Blue.

Nah I did the gay/straight thingie. My result: "Your data suggest a strong automatic preference for Straight People compared to Gay People."

Also, I did the weight test just for the fun and I got that I like fat people better. "Your data suggest a slight automatic preference for Fat People compared to Thin People."
Even though I am thin I think there's something to it.

I don't disagree neither do I agree with it. For me, sexual orientation is not the first thing I take into account when determining whether a person is worthy for my attention or not.

people think the same of me, i have long hair, i'm nice, clean, and i wear tight pants. most of the people that think i'm gay are jerks, not clean, and probably have never had a good girlfriend. gotta admit skinny jeans have some great sex appeal Very Happy

sometimes you just can't tell by looks alone.
behavior says a lot, as action always speaks louder than words.

we can never go wrong if we stick to respect. not only respect each other but respect ourselves. if someone is how they are because that's who they are (or at least choose to be) then more power to ya, but there's no respect when people act the way they do because they are trying to be someone else (not themselves)

trends come and go not to mention timing is everything... from powdered wigs to tight jeans ` just be yourself ^,^

A forum filled with teenagers. The administrator and maybe the moderators are the only adults there.
The whole forum's about kids crying and kids helping them. Usually the topic of their problems is about things they aren't mature enough to know.
For example: 14 year old boy saying he thinks he's gay. or Someone looked up what depression is on the Internet and thinks he has that.
Also, you can find topic there like "[sth] pride" i.e. "Communist pride" where someone claims he's a communist and he's proud of it and the whole f***ing world needs to know that. Of course, if you write this then you'll get warned for offensive behaviour, etc.
And, of course, topic to do with gays are always there.

My favourite was when in the gay/bi discussion topic someone linked a video then another someone commented on that video and another someone found that offensive and they began to discuss that. I joined in as well saying that "no matter what you write there always will be someone who finds it offensive or picks on it. Also the terms offended, freedom of speech, etc. are way to overused.". The next day I went back and all the posts regarding this were deleted. (Wtf) I even asked where did all those posts go and my answer was they deleted this post as well. Lol wat.

One other thing, here's my warning message:
You've received a warning for your offensive remarks regarding gay rights. Annoyed? Keep it to yourself.
Proud of something? Keep it to yourself for god's sake. Imagine what it'd be like if people were boasting about that they're a minority, wait I know a better one! I'm a majority and I'm proud of it! Let's have a parade as well!
You get it.

If ya wanna see such faggotry (sorry for using this word) first hand then register to this forum:
http://www.furryteens.org/forum

Wait, what furries are? The less you know about them the better. The majority has no life.

that's a bit drastic... well I sorta agree. I mean just cause you're gay doesn't mean you really need to have a month long parade dedicated to you. Aren't there other ways to raise your self esteem (like talking to other people?). Just cos they can. dont mean they have to. I don't think there's such thing as a "Annual Celebrate being a minority week".

idk, seems like some people develop this hatred towards the idea because of life experiences. Its popular and in the now to just flat out hate and not have respect with out listening to them first. And its this ever growing drive as a human to be part of the crowd for some reason. If your not in it but cast aside and refused entry then anger builds for it has to replace the sadness that accompanies the out casting.

He was sorta right, in a twisted way. If your proud of something then don't flaunt it and make it the goal of the others that surround you. Just be proud your able to be your self.
