So what did you tell her after reading this?
She hasn’t come online yet, but when she does we’re going to have to have The Talk. Her comments have been bothering me for ages but I always let it slide because I know she’s trying to be supportive in her own completely oblivious way.
But goddamn I’m gonna sit her ass down for five seconds there.
(love the cat) so you’re mad at her because she hasn’t given proper/valid reasons as to why homophobia is bad?
I am mad at our society because this child (and yes, at this point I don’t believe there is any other way she could be addressed) was raised in such a way that she finds her defence of her deeply exclusionary worldview acceptable and worth encouragement from actual LGBT persons.
I am angry because she wrote that “if you are kind and helpful then why should we mind if you don’t belong with the rest” (meaning you are only a human being when you’re kind and helpful) and that “sure, it might look gross, but hey if it’s being done in secrecy behind closed doors then no harm is done” and that “it doesn’t matter whether people’s preferences are normal or not.”
I am a blustering storm of unquenchable fury because at the age of seventeen this kid legitimately, genuinely, in her heart, believes that these are the very best things she could possibly say in defense of a gay person.
So, are you proud of her, or are you mad at her? I’m confused
I am very angry.

No, you see, this shit grinds my gears. A good friend of mine from back home, who is in high school, who is 17, is writing an essay for English class on, essentially, how Homophobia Is Bad™, and asked me to proofread it (no doubt for my involvement in the matter rather than my English proficiency). So far so good, right? That’s quite heart-warming, considering I’m the only LG(b(((t)))) person she knows (or knows that she knows).
Which is the problem.
I am the only goddamn LG person she knows.
