In need of a redesign since 2011.

Wednesday, 17 January 2007


I was told recently that everyone, when maturing, goes through a phase where they are attracted to the same sex, and that if you become consciously aware of this phase while you're in it, you will react against this so strongly that you will become completely homophobic. So much so that the very thought of homosexuality will disgust you. Interestingly enough, if this is true, it means that homophobic people genuinely can't help the way they feel.

There may be hundreds of closet homophobes around the country, afraid to admit the way they feel because they fear persecution, even though it isn't their fault. Perhaps we should extend to them the same love and acceptance we ask them to show towards gay people.

On the other hand, maybe something happened in some people's developments that means they loathe and detest homophobes, and they really can't help that?

I tell you what, it gets confusing if you try and take free will out of the equation.
