How?

Look up the definition of homophobic.  It should be pretty damn apparent if you have an IQ above 80


This is known as the "Orson Scott Card" argument. It's pretty childish. They like to hide behind dictionary words so they can pretend they aren't bigots.

Confabulat: ginandbacon: I think homosexuality is illegal in all of those countries but I have a lot of gay friends that have had wonderful vacations in Morocco. (Admittedly not lately.) They are all predominantly Muslim I believe except for Ethiopia and Eritrea? It still seems odd to not include them in "a map of Africa."

I dunno though. The wording is poor but Africa is really really really big. At some point you have to scale in further or you may as well just put everything on there and call it Earth. It's not like the USA or Australia or Russia or China or Canada or other big places either, at least those places are united by a single government. These are small volatile nations that probably have a million blood disputes with each other, or they don't even know each other exist. Even the countries listed have about zero in common with each other after awhile, I'm quite sure.

It seems kind of pointless to lump them all together anyway.

I haven't lost anything, dude. However, you've been a pretty interesting case subject on the backwards confused dimwits on the wrong side of history who never heard of gay rights until the read about it online. That's you, right? Never had any close gay friends in your life? Never seen the struggles they've been going through? Cause I'm straight, but I've grown up around gay people my whole life and for me, this is a very personal subject.

You really never had any gay friends, huh? Was that because they were too scared to tell you, or because you were busy beating them up?

You want to fight over the vague meanings of various words, when the fact is, you're still an really shocking example of American ignorance in 2013. I think I'll let you obsess over your little wordplay if it comforts you.

They should be able to have relationships.  They shouldn't be able to get married.  They shouldn't have to worry about being fired.

The Italian Farker: Exactly, I point out that the word "Disapproval"  is actually a synonym for "Aversion" listed under the Merriam-Webster thesaurus page and all he can say in reply is.

I'm sorry you don't realize how much you suck at English.  Can a person disapprove of drugs, while being able to tolerate being around them?  Yes, yes they can, and that means that "aversion" as its relevant use, is not applicable.


Well I would rather suck at English than have to take a word that has more than one meaning and only use the meaning that seems appropriate and ignore the other ones because they might contradict his point.

BraveNewCheneyWorld: Hickory-smoked: If it just means you don't like having sex with men, then I think your disagreement is 100% supported by everyone across the political spectrum. If you mean you "disagree" with other men or women who think they have the right to consensually love each other, then you're an asshole. There's no other way to put it.

There are people who don't like to use heroin, but think it should be legal, and there are people who don't use heroin and think it should be illegal.  Neither one of those groups is necessarily being led by hatred or bigotry, and neither one is inherently an "asshole" because of the views they hold.  It's a shame that you can't see how your logic would (not) apply to many similar consensual activities.  How can you claim to be fighting for tolerance, when you are intolerant of those who do nothing more than disagree?


First, it isn't bigotry to dislike bigots. Don't be stupid.

Second, you are an asshole troll. Your views are that of an asshole Your distraction of how big an asshole you are via dictionary games is that of a troll.

That would make far too much sense and not be trollish for him to actually respond to you. Notice how he responded to my comment though, not with any sort of refutation of his behavior and responses, but yet another troll comment. I'd like to say he's just trolling us for fun, but given his profile I'm going to guess he actually believes that gay people shouldn't be allowed to marry, etc. But hey, I'd love to actually see him actually come out and say what he is actually for/against rather than just trolling about use of language.

Maybe I should make it easy for him and give him a multiple choice set of answers:
a) I feel that gay people should not be allowed to marry, or that they should not have the same set of rights as others
b) Whatever people do in their houses is fine, but they shouldn't be allowed to get married because. <Feel free to insert reasoning here>
c) I feel that gay people should be allowed to marry, just as long as it's not to me.
d) I'm disturbed by the idea of people being gay, but as long as they don't try to have sex with me it's fine
e) Gay is a choice and therefore they are just weird and I don't like weird people
f) <Insert answer that is not a troll comment about language and is actually what you believe. Then people can have an actual discussion with you, regardless of what your viewpoint is. Just... friggin have... one.>

I'm going to hazard that he won't really, because it gets in the way of folks interfering with the "great freedom" to be dicks to people.

And that's the problem. Like the fact that some folks aren't into the same things that you're into or not, it boils down to basic rights. The freedom of consenting adults to be consenting adults.

You don't want to marry folks in your own church, I have no problem with that. You want to prevent other churches from doing so, then there's issue. Minding your own dang business is the ultimate lesson here, and some folks just can't stand to see others not choosing their own path. Be as hateful and cranky as you want within your own church, preach to the Heavens and all your congregation about the ebbil and sins of folks, but maybe step back a bit when it comes down what consenting adults do with other consenting adults, and maybe step back a bit and consider that "religious freedom" doesn't mean dictating what others can or should do within their own...

I like when it comes to words like phobia and theory, conservatives decide that words are allowed to have one strict definition and one definition only, ignoring common usage and any other recognized definition. Specifically with homophobia, it has very commonly meant any negative feeling or attitude towards homosexuals, despite the roots of the word. It reminds me of the rednecks that live near me who try to claim (falsely) that the n-word originally meant something other than a black person, so they were not being racist by calling black people that all the time.

There's nothing especially weird about it.  They're in Africa geographically.  But Egypt, at the very least, is culturally and politically part of the Middle East.  It's not that different from México being part of North America geographically yet part of Latin America in all other regards.  Or the way Turkey both is and is not part of Europe.  Or Australia and New Zealand being "Western" nations.

The painful punishment is only symbolic of their sin - Dante's depiction of Hell is the prime example of Ironic Hell. The actual punishment of Hell is not what's happening to them in the various Circles; it's the total isolation from God. You are in Hell because God does not give a shiat about you. There's no redemption, no forgiveness and no way out once you're in there. All the souls in Hell feel this isolation from the Divine, even those that don't understand it, and that is the true source of their pain; the punishments are symbolic but ultimately incidental to the actual torment of Hell.

BraveNewCheneyWorld: Look up the definition of homophobic. It should be pretty damn apparent if you have an IQ above 80


From Wikipedia:
Homophobia encompasses a range of negative attitudes and feelings toward homosexuality or people who are identified or perceived as being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). It can be expressed as antipathy, contempt, prejudice, aversion, or hatred, may be based on irrational fear, and is sometimes related to religious beliefs.

From what I understand, "disapprove of homosexuality" just sounds like a more polite synonym than an actual distinction. So on what grounds can you "disapprove of homosexuality" without being homophobic?

Morocco, Western Sahara, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya and Egypt are apparently not a part of Africa... Nor are the island nations generally listed as part of Africa (Madagascar, Comoros, etc).


That is so weird. Do they think they're in the Middle East?

And woza Tutu!!!!!! What a truly great man!
