Do you have something against people who are against gays? lol just saying... being judgemental is hypocritical xD
Let people think/believe what they want to think. I know a lot of racists/homophobes/sexists/what-have-you and they are perfectly cool people to hang around.
If you go around beating up homosexuals or asians or women, then yes, that is wrong. If you don't allow indians to shop in your store, then yes, that is wrong. These are actions based on thought.
That's like me saying that you're food-racist against vegetables because you don't eat them (example) and you're a weirdo-loser because you like some show that nobody else watches, and that makes me a bad person. It only makes me bad person if I DO something about it. Like...never invite you to a vegetarian restaurant or never want to watch TV with you.
People are entitled to their thoughts and beliefs, it's when you turn your thoughts into actions is when you are held accountable.
The measure of an individual can be difficult to discern by actions OR
Just putting that out there... I don't judge people for their beliefs, only their actions. My mum for example is somewhat homophobic but not so in a true sense (again, thought over action). She doesn't like/approve of gays, and would be ashamed if her children were gay, but it's not like she goes around with a sniper rifle or a Molotov, picking off the gays. She also doesn't really make public outlandish statements saying that they should be slaughtered either. However if anybody can honestly say that they don't want to like my mum because of her "bigotry" then you're just missing out on knowing a person with a heart of gold.
I'm sure there is ONE group of people that everybody generally dislikes for no apparent reason; whether it be homosexuals, hipsters, emo/goth kids, preps, Jets or the Sharks
I generally dislike hipsters and emo/goth kids but I've got three hipster friends and a goth friend.
