The “right-wing” have often *defended* themselves from LGBT people using ridiculous claims like gays are pedophiles and if you allow gays to get married, gay sex will be taught to elementary students, etc. It’s a topic I’ve covered a couple of times here because I find their comments so ridiculous that repeating them only illustrates how insane their claims are. But the claims all have one thing in common, they are meant to belittle, insult and oppress LGBT people. They are purposeful in illustrating the “evil” of LGBT people. They intend to make us look like wretches and non-productive members of society, and if they could, they would draw images of us with horns and tails and proclaim us to be direct descendants of the devil (but most haven’t gotten that ridiculous yet).
Sometimes, comments aren’t “stupid” in the realm of homophobia, but outright hateful and unfathomable. What reaction should a gay man have to comments such as this one?
oh and by the way another couple of gays killed in my neighbourhood for being gay, that is music to my ears. from a proud homophobic. —firstname.lastname@example.org
Outrage? Fear? Anxiety? Hate?
