It's funny when a guy says he's so masculine but yet all the manliness disappears once they see guy kissing another guy or even having something more intimate. At least now we know their biggest weakness and can make plans for it

I think it's because a lot of society view a man who likes a man to be "submissive" - of course this is totally untrue and an uneducated stereotype. Society views females as submissive and as the "inferior" sex therefore it is more frowned upon by society for a male to be gay. Also a lot of men are scared of homosexual men as they have to experience what women have to go through nearly everyday - the fear of being hit on/dominated. They get it into their heads that gay men will lust for every man they see. Society is just extremely prejudiced at present, I believe it will get somewhat better in the future though.

You're making generalizations. You don't know ALL lesbians, therefore you mean SOME lesbians.
...hence why I said "I dislike the ones who..." rather than "I dislike all lesbians"

I didn't have a problem with lesbians before because I never actually knew any. Then, I found out that my cousin is a lesbian, and I've noticed how she's constantly posting sexualised images of women on social media and it just seems like all she's interested in is the sexual aspect, rather than the emotional side to it. I've also noticed how persistent and stubborn she is when it comes to straight girls.
It makes me really angry how lesbians think that they can just force their sexuality onto straight girls just because a minority of straight girls are comfortable kissing each other on the cheeks etc, and also they think that it's acceptable to objectify women just because they themselves are female, not male.
I wouldn't say that I'm scared of lesbians, I just dislike the ones who don't understand that there are boundaries, and that liking women doesn't make them superior to straight males nor does it give them any extra privileges.
Much generalising

A phobia, I.e, homophobia, is a fear of something.
technically true but that is not what it means in society.

Read my above reply. And if anything, everything being said on this thread is a "generalisation".

I did read it but that doesn't change what you said in your op, that bit was not the part that was generalising.

Ugh I went out with a girl who sounds like your cousin. I kind of dismissed all the worrying signs at first and went along with it but eventually she turned out to be a right four letter word. And she seemed to think she could 'get any woman' because 'women love it' and all that bravado-y stuff. I think those kinds of lesbians are messed up. But not all lezzas are like that lol.


In response to the thread, not all guys are scared of homosexuality, some are open about it and others are like 'oh I'm not gay but I respect those at are' which is cool. HOWEVER I have tended to find those that really hate on it, get all defensive at even the slight suggestion they might be gay, and use abusive language like 'OI I'M NOT A FEKKKKKING POOFTAAAH MATEEEEE, YERRRR FACKIIING QUEER' are the most insecure men. Those are the most hateful and weak men and the ones that are most afraid of themselves. They are practically always the ones that womanise and control their women too. So yeah, I think those kinds of guys need to cling onto this really masculine facade, because they are so scared of being revealed for their true weaknesses.

Actually the Oxford dictionary definition of a phobia is "an extreme or irrational fear or dislike of a specified thing or group".

Therefore, homophobia doesn't necessarily have to be defined as anyone being afraid of homosexuality, simply dislike it

Whilst I undertand your frustration with your cousin I think you are generalising heavily.

Not all straight people are nice. Therefore not all gay people are nice.

Lesbians often get annoyed with straight girls that think we fancy them. (We hardly ever fancy or crack on straight girls anyway) if a lesbian flirts with you, politely decline and explain that you are straight, just like you would if a guy you didn't like hit on you.

Problem solved. Lesbians aren't so scary now huh?

That's not when you generalised. Look at your post, 'I hate it when lesbians....' That is generalisation

Jesus Christ. It's obvious from her post that she meant a certain group of lesbians when further down she says "some". Stop having a go, people would rationalise that she doesn't mean every lesbian, no need to be so pedantic,

Some people would rationalise it that way, they are wrong. The post clearly contained a generalisation. I didn't have a go at the poster at all. I merely pointed it out and explained something to her. I also said I understood her frustration with her cousin.

I don't think I'm the one being pedantic here. Its a little but irritating to be given a ticking off for having an opinion that many rational people would share.

....homosexuality.
From my experience, women are nothing like as scared and paranoid about lesbianism as many men are about homosexuality. Some women even kiss their friends and get intimate with them to turn on their husbands and boyfriends. Moreover, much of 'straight' porn consists of endless lesbian sex, whereas the men in the films seldom even touch each other.
Gay men behave differently. They also pushbfor gay marriage and want to raise children.
