How can you be certain? Whit if it's not conditioning?Yes.
Alone, no. It could act as a justification for bigotry for the simple minded.
Why's it gotta be only the simple minded? Why do you assume the complex minded can't be homophobic also?
Please tell Lacez that you think it's normal.It's natural in the same sense that every human behavior is natural, including all manner of disorders, phobias, crimes, misdemeanors, and oopsies.
And please explain to me why you think it's a "disorder".
Really? You're gonna go there? You're implying that homophobia "causes" harm, not that it "can cause" harm. You're also implying that homosexuality "does not" cause harm....Natural does not equate to socially acceptable or morally correct.[/QUOTE[
I didn't say it does.
[QUOTE] Homophobia causes harm, whereas homosexuality does not.
You sure about that?
Excellent point. But you're implying that homoseuxality is as much of a non-choice as a person's height. Why?Would I hate you because you're taller than I am? Naturally I would, so naturally, I should never be hindered in any way while harassing you for your freakish height. RiversideRedwood, always the first one to know when it rains. Must get lonely up there, huh, Mr Periscope? That might seem silly, but that kind of prejudice can be constructed in a culture just like homophobia.
I agree. I'm just pointing out to Lacez that I think homophobia is as natural in humans as homophobia is.There's no good reason to be opposed to homosexuality.
