Gay Love Question

How can you be gay and have a homphobe for your best friend?!? I just don't get it! Don't you know the difference between a best friend and a worst enemy?!

Homophobes hate all gay men, men like me and you! That means if you're gay like you say, then they hate you too!! How can you have a best friend who hates you for what you really are and who can't accept you for being gay?! What kind of a gay man are you then? Or even better: Are you a homophobe yourself or have you just turned straight out of a sudden? I really don't get it!

Well, not saying that you should be best friends or even just friends with a homophobe, but I think instead of just shunning them you should get to know them and see why they think the way they do. If we could sit down and talk with them and understand why they view gay people in a negative light then maybe we can show them that gays are not bad and are people, too.

Homophobes are people too.
People can change. So if we treat them normally, they may find gay men pretty normal too. We have to give them room to come to this conclusion. I enjoy giving a snarky response now and then to homophobes, but really, there's a ton of people out there, all with different personalities and interests. We're not going to get along with everyone, but we might as well try. Lets hate each other for not our sexuality, but for everything else xD
