Google gay panic.

People with gay panic, out are st8 out stupid. And, are a result of our stupid ideas about sex. And toxic masculinity and shame over sexuality. Grow up America.

The same respect?

Why would I be that much of a dick, just because I'm gay? I don't appreciate the headline's insinuation that I'm a pig.

2020-07-15 2:46:41 PM  
Sweet, you mean that they might quietly check me out, not call out anything, maybe mention something to their friends, and be too shy and awkward to bother me?

Cool. I hate when they're rude and make catcalls as I go by. This will be a nice change.

Used and successfully used or two different topics.
fact of the matter is, just bringing it up as a defense is disgusting. Regardless if you win or lose.

I can still use it as a defense against murdering jesters, though, right? After all, there's pretty clear evidence of them making people gay.

FTA: " Another measure he signed simplifies requirements for minors to change the gender on their birth certificate. They will need to present a statement from a licensed health care provider that their gender identity does not align with the one on their original birth certificate, but they do not need to provide proof that they have undergone transition procedures "


At this point, why have that designation on the certificate at all?
 
2020-07-15 2:53:28 PM  
If you have to start whaling on someone of the same gender that hits on you, you might as well be screaming "I don't want to be as gay as I am!" at the top of your lungs while you're doing it.

Because if being propositioned sets off fear in your head, it's because you're afraid its true and you've been taught that it is bad, so you're violently repressing it as well as the person who triggered those thoughts in your head.

According to this source 107 since 1970 but the numbers really aren't the point.

The fact this defense even exists was a way to dehumanize the LGBT community - "Judge it wasn't my fault I killed him, it was his fault for being gay."

I get that and agree. I'm just curious to know if using the defense is rampant or if a couple of rednecks used it as a cobbled together excuse to hurt people.

Imagine being driven to murderous rage because someone finds you attractive?

I mean obviously it's one thing if it's rude.
Nobody should put up with sexual harassment/catcalling/stalking but if a person just comes up to you in a bar or whatever and are polite about it and you aren't into them and they accept the rejection without turning into a douchecanoe, why would that send anyone into anger? Sometimes people are going to be into you that you just don't want to date. I've never understood flying off the handle over it. (Again, unless the person is harassing you but that's not the same)

Humans are weird.

The last time a gay man hit on me, some *cough cough* number of years ago, he was trying to impress me b/c he drove a Nissan Altima. At the time, I thought I was Audi or better, but then I looked at the women who I was sleeping w/, and realizing no, a Nissan Altima was probably a little high for my league.

What about hetero men who don't treat women we're attracted to like that?

Are we gay?

I agree with you.
The portrayal of the article along with the headline here that starts with "Dear heterosexual males" tells me the use of the defense was rampant instead of very,very few cases across 50 years.
Is it wrong, yes.
Does the majority or even minority of heterosexual males use this defense, no.

Hopefully something like:

"My friend Brad used to be a happy, popular, manly dude with big muscles and a beard until one night at a bar he picked up girl and took her home, but when he got there it turned out 'she' had a package. Because he wasn't allowed to beat 'her' up, by law he had to sleep with this person and he turned gay instantly. This is what Brad--now 'Becky'--looks like now. Please don't stop us from beating up transgendered and gay folks. They're the most dangerous people out there. Don't end up like Brad."

I don't think panic, stupid ideas about sex, toxic masculinity or shame can be applied to a whole country when there have been 107 instances of this defense used over 50 years. America is a BIG place.
