    So you are saying you respect homosexual people and tolerate homosexual behaviour but surely you cannot expect me to respect homophobic people and tolerate homophobic behaviour?

    You do realise that is what your asking me to do, right?

    Because that would be speaking from the 'other side' to the one that I am on.
    I am not telling you to respect homophobic people and homophobic behavior.

    I clearly said having an avatar literally saying you support homosexuality is fine, except to those who are homophobic of course.

    Yes but I don't care if I offend homophobic people with my avatar because I believe their opinions on homosexuality are wrong.

    Well there is nothing wrong with homosexuality, I don't respect a lot of opinions, homophobic ones are one of them.

    That's exactly my point, which is why having an avatar saying "I support homosexuality" is fine.

    But having an avatar displaying homosexual activity is offensive to many people who aren't even homophobic, but just dislike the activity.

    If you are happy with offending these people, myself included, keep your avatar.

    Guys, who cares about what homophobes say? Homophobes will be homophobes, no matter how well you argue your point. Forever ignorant and hateful. Don't stoop to their level

    Well I'm not taking it down because it offends you. That's like saying I'm going to pull down my skirt because it offends you. I don't see why I should have to change my actions that I deem perfectly appropriate because some individuals find it offensive.

    It's not mine or the gay communities fault you find their perfectly appropriate expression of love offensive.

    Do you see my point?

    I clearly said, if you are happy with your choice, then keep your avatar. I didn't tell you that you must change anything, I just told you how I feel about your avatar.

    I know you find it offensive, but I disagree so I won't be changing my avatar.

    There are people who are offended by inter-racial couples but surely you wouldn't be against that too?

    Sexuality, like race, is not a choice. (: Why be offended by something that is not in one's control?

    I'm going to make a massive speech again over this, but someone who is biologically homosexual should not have to pander to the beliefs of religious people who CHOOSE their beliefs.

    God I can see this kicking off again.
    "Biologically homosexual"?

    Bruh.

    That's the problem. Not everyone believes it is not a choice.

    So people in Uganda for example, choose to be gay because they're treated so wonderfully there?
