Quote# 75783

Alot of people find homosexuality unnatural and gross. How are the people who believe this any less entitled to their opinion than those who find it hip and cool? Tolerance is a two way street. And if you want to come on here preatching tolerance, maybe we should start talking about tolerance for people who um, want to be with animals too lol Let people believe what they want to believe, and stop throwing around the intolerance card, you call people who dont support your views of homosexuality intolerant but what does it say about "you" when you are as intolerant of their views as they are of yours. Something to consiter.

I find a lot of things people do gross. But as long as those things don't do any harm, I shut the fuck up and mind my own goddamn business. You should try it sometime, symach.

I'm not intolerant of homophobes, I am intolerant of cretins who think that homosexuals are responsible for every ill in society and should be locked up or shot.

There is a difference.

No one's trying to take away anyone's right to bitch, just the imagined right to perpetrate violence on & take away the rights of others.

You are using your right to expose your ignorance. Of course we're tolerant of that. Without people like you, this site wouldn't exist.

I support your right to find homosexuality unnatural and gross. You can find the image of two guys fucking as gross as you want.

You are not, however, entitled to persecute them for doing it.

See the difference?

You know, it's ok if you think homosexuality is gross. I think coprophilia is gross. I don't go on about it though, I just don't do it - for me that is opposition enough. I also don't claim it means those people who do practice it don't deserve the same rights as anyone else, or that they are evil, mentally unstable or paedophiles. That's the intolerance the thinking people of the world take issue with, denying rights to homosexuals because "it's icky", people feeling it is OK to discriminate because they don't like what someone does in the privacy of their bedrooms, people who feel a need to speak out about things that are none of their fucking business.

In summary: shut up, twerp.

Two consenting adults =/= Man fucking a barely sentinent animal

But what you'd expect from fanboys, they have strong sense of "My tastes > Your shitty tastes"

I think blood and gore in games and movies is gross. I think mushrooms are gross. I think tattoos and body piercings are gross. But I'm not going around trying to ban those things, or persecute those who like those things. I don't pitch a hissy fit, act like a drama queen or cry that I'm being persecuted everytime I see someone eat a portabello. I accept that other people like those things and respect their right to enjoy them.

That's the difference.

You are not less entitled to your view. You are less entitled, as are we all, to carry out human rights-transgressive actions. Actively hating and proselytizing against a group of individuals over an integral part of their being is bloody well intolerant, in the bad sense.

If you no likie homosexual sex, don't have any.

I find people who have blonde hair pretty unnatural and gross, but I try not to hold it against them and I don't ever tell anyone (outside of anonymous forums) because that would make me a HUGE JACKASS.

He has a point; we do tend to call people who disagree with us intolerant. Which is a bit hypocritical. But personally I think when someone tries to limit someone else's rights or verbally abuses people because of an "icky feeling", then fuck tolerance, that shit has to stop.

Fix your shameful stupidity, and your problems with spelling, logic and tolerance alike will all go away.

People who find it "hip and cool"? Seriously? So you're looking at some peoples' sexuality (for which they face discrimination, hatred, and in most places a lack of equal rights) and the beliefs of allies that that discrimination is wrong, and equating it with some passing fad or fashion? Pokemon was cool, Tamagotchis were cool, hoodies were cool - they would have been hip, except I'm not that old. The struggle for equality is rather more important.

I was going to post a long discussion on opposition to opinions not being the same as opposition to words and actions, opposition to something that one personally dislikes but which is harmful to no one not being the same as opposition to something which oppresses and harms a large group of people, and sex between two consenting adults not being the same as sex between a human being and an animal incapable of informed consent, but really, the "hip and cool" part bothered me most.

Exactly. The "hip and cool" thing was what pissed me off the most. Saying that a sexual orientation is "cool" is like going "fuck yeah, esophagus!". Homosexuality is something that occurs naturally, and therefore any opinions along the lines of like/don't like regarding it make absolutely no sense.
Also the whole "reasonable" and "benevolent" tone of the statement ("something to [consider]", etc) is extremely annoying.

One day, a homophobe might conceivably succeed in talking about homosexuality without making any reference to bestiality, and we'll all require professional treatment for shock.

FUCK YEAH, ESOPHAGUS!

whatever

Well I was going to make a comment here but entropius and LDM have done it for me, they both echoed my exact thoughts. Except for the mushrooms... I quite like steak and mushrooms. Yum.

They can hold whatever opinion they want, but forcing it onto other people is unacceptable. Also, being disgusted by something isn't an excuse for acting like an asshole when other people engage in it. I am utterly revolted by onions -- should I run around whining about the fact that numerous people enjoy eating them?

9/3/2010 4:19:22 AM

"Unnatural and gross?" "Hip and cool?" The vast majority of us don't care what gender you're attracted to one way or the other. That's what "tolerance" means.


ETA: Why the fuck is a video game site talking about homosexuality anyway? Off-topic much?

9/3/2010 4:27:59 AM



nobody in the world finds homosexuality "hip and cool"


theres people who know its a natural sexual orientation, and insane dumbasses like you who discriminate against homosexuals.


its not a matter of opinion, you are just a dumbfuck who chooses to believe that they chose to be homosexual because the invisible badmen in your head are tricking them.


just like they tricked you into raping your daughter.

it was her fault for acting so sexy. little babylonian whore.

"A lot of people find homosexuality unnatural and gross."

True but I'm guessing you're one of the ones who is ashamed to secretly find it arousing.

Some people find interacial relationships gross too, should we deny interacial couples the right to marry or hold hands in public?

As for the 'with animals', which part of consenting adults do you not understand? Are animals suddenly able to testify in court too?

You just don't like tolerance because you're a bigot.

The funny thing about tolerance is that you can't be tolerant of intolerance. The concept you're looking for is enabling; you want people that are going to be enablers to your bad habit of hating people. You want others to just sit back and let you have your way. Truly tolerant people not only tolerate those that are different from them, they also defend them and that requires standing up to bigots.

Atrocious grammar? Smug attitude? Why yes, you are one giant asshole. Tell your mother that she was great last night.
