The way you say everything makes me want to agree with you until I die.
Yea. One of them gets brought up way too much on this site. And the other one is racism.
I love you
Uh racism has to do with hating on race & homophobia with hating on sexual prefernces of people. Race does not equal sexual preference.
annd, i know people who are racist & not homophobic & vice-versa.
on a fundamental level they are the same - they are irrational fears or hatred expressed in whatever way. But yes, of course in a more precise sense they are not the same. And it's not the same as "hating" lettuce, because that's (usually) not based on prejudice, whereas the things in the OP are more often than not founded out of some ill-gotten prejudice.
:) i understand they're both forms of hate, but so is hating lettuce. thats a form of hate as well :b
You can hate lettuce....
yeah, but not based on irrational prejudice, haha. Perhaps on an irrational fear of it though. I saw that Maury Povich with the woman who was scared of pickles. Anyway, I don't really fundamentally disagree with the OP. I just like being difficult. :-P
Its all good :P I was being nit picky on facts on the distinction between the two on the POTD.
yeah that post was...interesting
i don't like lettuce. Dx
They have similar aspects.
I completely understand that, oppression and looking down upon others for what they are.But, I just need to know that these two things are in fact separate. Because seems like a may be wrong according to a lot of people.
No, racism and being homophobic both mean being anti homosexual. Totally.
Nice POTD response... I guess...
