I actually made a comic today about homosexual adoption. What a coincidence.
Wait, where's her mom?
...You almost got me. Goddammit.
And they can't make families of their own because it's fairly obvious that it only counts as a family if the children are the couple's biological children.
That's why we don't allow adoption at all, you see.
I love that!
You're a really good artist.
@Adonis: That was are really sweet comic. I love it!
Thank you both ahhh
Awh it made me cry why am I so emotional. ;u;
There's a new image post that the original comment got a TON of upvotes that didn't make sense...when and why did it do that? ( http://amirite.net/737619 )
I see... And I guess it's just Ant who can do that, then.
Probably either ActionMan made it like that for a short period of time, or it was Photoshoped/changed by a Chrome app by the poster.
Do people honestly say that? They might as well claim rapists are pro-fertility and robbers are simply attempting to stimulate the lagging economy.
I'm going to use that in every day talk but I wont give you any credit for it. Not because you don't deserve it but if I tell people I heard it from a flying guinea pig I might get institutionalized.
That is a perfect analogy.
Yes people do. Like fore example there is a political party in Australia that is called "Family First" and it is extremely homophobic, they call themselves "pro-family" but really they are just pro-traditional family.
Jesus, it's amazing hard how people try to come up with prettier terms for "hate"
I've never heard this
Exactly, like FlyingGuineaPig and AnneArky were saying, they're just trying to mask the fact that it's blind hatred by making it sound like a positive thing.
I hadn't either until today.There was an advertisement on the side of my news feed on Facebook and it said something like "Stand up and vote, be pro-family!" I figured it was something bigoted, so I looked it up and sure enough, it's a term for those against gay rights.
Oh, I see. Probably one of those things where they try to make it sound like a nice harmless thing, not preventing people from getting married.
Still horrible though.
This isn't the exact site the ad took me to, but it's kind of the same idea. If I find the original site I saw, I'll link it too, but it was mostly just a couple buttons where you could vote for/against stuff.
Here's another one: http://www.defendthefamily.com/ Ugh, it makes me sick. People like this are why everybody thinks all Christians are bigoted.
I'm not "pro-family", but youtube really shouldn't have banned it. whatever happened to freedom of speech on the Internet?
One more thing: http://ctrlv.in/115768
I think calling anyone that refers to themselves as 'pro-family' a homophobe may be crossing a line. Correct me if I'm wrong but an actual homophobe actively discriminates/bullies gay people... I feel like someone who's 'pro-family' uses that term because they believe in having a mother and a father figure, not because they hate homosexuals. I dunno
I don't know. I think if you don't consider it a family when the parents are gay, that's discrimination against homosexuals.
But it also has to do with the fact that everyone who calls themselves "pro-family" is homphobic. I've visited several "pro-family" websites, and all of them referred to homosexuality as a curse/disease/epidemic in one way or another.
k, well, let's not generalize, homophobes aren't actually as rampant in society as people seem to think.
I never said they were, I was only talking about this specific group.
What do you want them to do? Call themselves the anti-rights group?
Their views may be ignorant, but it's stupid and unrealistic to expect them to give themselves something besides a positive-sounding name.
They don't support gays so they are homophobes?
I don't support gay rights, but I'm not a homophobe.
I don't support native american rights, but I'm not a racist either.
However, both are bad. "I'm not a homophobe, but I disagree with gay marriage" is like saying "I didn't shoot him in the face, I just shot him in the leg." The latter being better, but not that much better, than the former.
I feel like if you go out to specifically vote against gay marriage, you're a homophobe. Being against them is fine and your opinion, but to actually restrict them by law is a different story.
I understand that, and I totally respect everybody's opinion on the matter, but the fact that they're calling themselves "pro-family" as if it doesn't count as a family when the parents are gay is what makes it homphobic.
Actually that's not how it works.
Homphobia=hating gay people and wanting nothing to do with them, thinking it's disgusting, etc.
Disagreeing with gay marriage=simply believing that marriage specifically should be between a man and a woman.
theres a difference between opposing gay marriage and opposing gay rights.
The latter implies also opposing gay adoption, civil unions, the belief that crimes against gays should be hate crimes, and so on.
I understand what you're saying.
The way I see it, as you said, gays already have every basic right except for marriage, so if you oppose gay marriage, you oppose gays having all equal rights, so that's what I mean when I talk about gay "rights". I can't speak for anyone else though.
Hurray for run-on sentences!
sadly, your not familiar with utah.
no civil unions, no gay adoptions...
the governor doesnt think that hate crimes against gays should be hate crimes >.<
i hate this state
Oh. Well I don't think people take Utah seriously anyways.
