    Why is it that whenever someone speaks out against gay marriage, they’re considered a “homophobe”?

    • Laura

      Because we don’t agree with them. They preach “tolerance” but they don’t practice it. If we don’t think or believe in the same things as they do, we’re considered homophobes, racists, bigots, judgmental etc. They’re hypocrites.

        When polyamory (marriage of 3 or more persons) becomes legal what will people who oppose it be called? Polyphobes? And to oppose adultery is to be an adulterophobe? Gambling and abortion are legal but many oppose. So – gamblophobia and aborphobia? It is a calculated shamimg, intimidation strategy that should be seen for the infantile absurdity that it is.

          Polyamory my ass. What does homosexuality have to do with polyamory? The gay and lesbian couples I’ve know have been with the same lover for 30 or more years. They may have more than one friend, but they usually stay with the same partner.

        Frankly this doesn’t sound like “homophobia.” Phobia is defined as an irrational *fear* of something or someone. When someone uses violence, intimidation, and threats against someone, that sounds more like an irrational *hatred* towards someone. Why that hatred, I really don’t know.

    I just said the same thing a few minutes ago I the comments section of a homosexuality-themed article on the Huffington Post website.

    I don’t consider it homophobia. Phobia is defined as an irrational fear of something or someone. What some of these celebs have is an irrational *hatred* for homosexuals. Why the strong hatred, I don’t know. They’re no different or worse than anyone else. They simply happen to be attracted to the same sex. What’s wrong with that? If a male-female couple can marry each other, why can’t a same-sex male couple, or a same-sex female couple? It may not be “normal”, it may not be “natural”, but so what? What’s so *wrong* about being attracted to the same sex?
