I cannot in any way relate to anyone who would hate themselves for being gay. I was totally accepted by my family, and mostly so by my friends. Those friends who didn't approve I just dropped from my social circle. My advice to anyone in this predicament would be to just walk away from organized religion as fast as their feet can carry them. There was a time when being ashamed was predictable and understandable. Now that time is over. No religion based on love can at the same time teach one to hate oneself for the way they were born. Religion only strives to enslave their followers and to donate money to keep the hate existing. And the only cure is to cut off their flow of money. And if you must be religious, find like-minded people who will share your beliefs. They are out there.

Well, the systemic inculcation of self hated is obviously far deeper than just the advisable action of just walking away from some cult alike, misogynistic or fundie religion would repair. We know this because we can all easily think of individuals and of social indeces which reveal self hatred amongst racial minorities, religious minorities, women.

It's the overt and covert imposition of self hatred onto various minority groups which is the "multi-causal developmental disorder." Talibangelicals are very sick, lying defamers.

Thanks to great organizations like Hope for Wholeness, homosexuals who want to be cured and become normal, decent people have a place to go for help. Conversion therapy has a proven track record with thousands of ex-gays to serve as as a testament to it's success in curing homosexuals and allowing them to become normal productive members of society.
There are many gay people who are normal, productive members of society.
You are a nobody.
Your homophobia is caused by your inability to deal with your own same sex lusts in a healthy way.
Wonder if there is a way to cure your homophobia.

What does being on welfare have to do with race? Unless you're inferring something I wasn't.

There is no sickness of homosexuality.
Homophobia, that's another matter.
There is nothing wrong with being attracted to members of the same sex.
But there is something wrong with obsessing over the romantic lives of others, to the point of hatred, like you do.
You are a homophobe.
What you need to do is stop feeling guilty about your same sex lusts.
Realize they are normal.
Orientation is analogous to handedness.
Just because a person is right handed, it doesn't mean they have no ability to use their left hand, IYKWIM.
Get help.

But surely not every two or three weeks as you have required for the past nine years?

There, fixed that for you. You're welcome.
