homophobia

@AvrisIT on Twitter: no. unconditionally respecting everyone's beliefs implies that everyone can just make up any unscientific, baseless, harmful bullshit and expect it to be taken seriously. that's not how reasonable society should behave. @BunCatGirl on Twitter: When a gay doesn’t respect beliefs like - they respect lgbt why the fuk not respect them or just shut yo mouth 🤔🤔🤡

So apparently I'm supposed to respect the belief that there are witches who have hexed the moon, because otherwise it would justify other people's homophobia.

What a pile of absolute bullshit.

Bart Staszewski bringing president Duda pictures of queer youth bullied into suicide

I keep running away from Polish homophobia. Geographically, I've left five years ago. But online? I'm trying not to read the news, not to engage with homophobes on Twitter, I'm unfollowing Polish accounts…

But I can't keep it up. The extent of queerphobic hatred, especially recently, is terrifying. I can't just idly watch my queer siblings suffer.

Homophobes get offended when I compare their anti-LGBTQ bigotry to racism.

Good.

I know, I know, all this will be pure speculation. But does it not sound really likely?

Imagine that you have a partner of opposite sex, but you don’t really have the greatest relationship... And your conservative parents or grandparents are constantly nagging you: “when is the wedding?”, “when will we get grandchildren?”, blah blah blah... Then you turn on TV and you see people there who cannot get married or have children, but they would very much want to. How would you feel about it?

Wiem, to wszystko będzie czysta spekulacja. Ale czyż nie brzmi prawdopodobnie?

Wyobraź sobie, że masz (różnopłciowego) partnera, z którym no jesteś bo jesteś, jakoś tak siłą rozpędu... a twoi konserwatywni rodzice czy tam dziadkowie ciągle suszą wam głowę “a kiedy ślub?”, “a kiedy wnuki?”, bla bla bla... Włączasz telewizor i widzisz tam ludzi, którzy nie mogą wziąć ślubu ani mieć dzieci, a bardzo chcą. Co byś czuł?

Allah loves equality

Religion is bullshit – that’s a claim I can get behind, defend and back up with solid arguments. However, one has to have some empathy and understanding for people who do believe in it.

I’ve recently realised that many conservative catchphrases can be answered with a simple challenge: “get naked then!”. How come?

Schwulen Beratung - Refugees welcome

I got into a nasty argument with a friend of mine, who was basically screaming at me for joining the “crowd of stupid, crazy people that get naked and have sex in the middle of the city”. Seriously.

Just FYI, I’ve never seen anyone publicly have sex during pride. Neither did he. He just doesn’t like pride celebrations, so he used every stupid argument he could think of to justify that.

His whole angry rant could be summed up like this: we shouldn’t celebrate, because there’s nothing to celebrate. Nothing, really?

Neil Patric Harris with family

It is a scientific consensus based on tons of studies: children of same-sex parents are just as happy, healthy and successful as the ones in “traditional” families.

The only difference is that they have to face the discrimination because of who raises them.

So if you really cared about children’s well-being so much, you wouldn’t deny them the chance of getting adopted by some loving same-sex parents. If you want children to be happy, science tells you to stop discriminating LGBT people, not the opposite.

I’ve recently stumbled upon an intriguing comment on Facebook, which I now, regrettably, cannot find again. But I’d like to respond anyway. It was about a guy called Milo Yiannopoulos and it said something along the lines of:

Haha, how come the greatest enemy of the left is a gay, jewish guy?

Well, here’s a really simple answer:

Don’t get me wrong – of course homophobia is a serious problem, and of course I constantly support the fight against any form of discrimination. But guys, please, stop seeing it everywhere!

The Chancellor of Germany has given an interview recently, where she managed to fit two sentences that totally contradict each other. What a shame for the Empress of Europe to lack in consistency so much...
