True Homophobia


(paraphrased from Last Comic Standing last night)

"If someone's truly afraid of the dark, you don't call him a bigot. You don't shove him into a dark cupboard to help him get over it.

But, with homophobia, there's an entirely different stigma. What if the person literally had a traumatic experience growing up? Like, a homosexual jumped out of the closet and sat on them or something?

Give them time to heal."

Hey -- got your email awhile back. I would love to be as engaged in the debates as I used to be, but I'm just swamped. I'll get into it when/if I can.

Just didn't want you to think I was blowing you off.
