Would you respect someone who is racist towards you because you’re black?
It’s hard to respect things like racism…or homophobia. And you are proud to be homophobic.
I don’t really like politically correct things because it gets to a point that is very annoying, but there’s a very big gap between being politically incorrect and a hater of X, Y or Z.[/quote]
Racism is an irrational hatred of another race, so no I wouldn’t. On the other hand, if what someone said had basis in fact or reality, then yes I would. I read on a site somewhere that black men committed over half of murders in the US while being only about 6 percent of the US population. I can’t get mad at that person for stating a fact that can be proven. Now if I wanted to shut him up, I could accuse him of being racist. But stating the obvious doesnt equal racism, sexism, or homophobia.
Like if I mention that AIDS is a disease spread that stems mainly from homosexual behavior, you can call me a homophobe all you want, it doesn’t change the fact that its true and has been proven. Now if I went off on a rant about how much I hate gays and how they ought to burn in hell, then you would have a point for calling me a homophobe. The same way if someone just went on a rant and said how they hate blacks and all blacks should burn in hell, that could be considered racist. But stating facts doesn’t equal homophobia or racism.[/quote]
AIDS can not be spread, HIV does. The most common source of HIV is homosexual contact, this is true, but that shouldn’t affect the rest of homosexuals.
We had a short argument about homosexuals in SAMA and, if I remember correctly, HIV was not involved at all. So…
Newsflash you naive clown. Youre being trolled.
God youre one of the most awkward people on this board. [/quote]
I give people the benefit of the doubt.
Don’t. It’s the Internet. NO ONE gets the benefit of the doubt here.[/quote]
I don’t care.
I’m tired of seeing people with honest, although stupid, concerns being treated as trolls when they are not.
