“UNDERSTANDING” AND “AGREEING WITH” SEXUAL ORIENTATION
The homophobe’s first problem was thinking that another person’s sexual orientation is something that you need to “understand” or “agree with.” I don’t fully understand or agree with heterosexuality. A lot of it baffles my mind. Do I think heterosexuals should be stoned? No. Why are so many heterosexual relationships miserable? It’s not like they don’t have an entire society cheering them on. I remain confused. Does my failure to understand miserable heterosexuals, in spite of society privileging them, mean that I hate them? No. There are many things that I don’t understand about heterosexuality, but I don’t use that as an excuse to hate them. Maybe I should? Why do so many heterosexual men abandon their children? I ask these questions. Lack of understanding only equates to hatred when you are a hateful person. Stop using that as an excuse to be hateful.
