    So "disagreeing" with a certain race is fine as long as you're accepting of it, too, I assume? Since it's natural?
    I see your point; but disagreeing in OP's case is in accordance to personal belief, they aren't denying the existence of homosexuality nor do they believe that anyone is "superior" or inferior based on their sexuality. Nor do they mistreat anyone based on their sexuality. Calling them "homophobic" would group them in the same category as the uneducated ****bois who call everything "gay", throws around slurs like it's no tomorrow and wouldn't be adverse to bullying someone whose sexuality they don't "approve" or understand. OP doesn't have a perfect moral slate and clearly has different opinions than most the people on this thread, but i wouldn't go as far as to call them a raging homophobic.

    you're homophobic, genius. "disagreeing" with something someone can't control and was born with isn't having an opinion. it's being an intolerant, discriminating, awful person. if you don't want to be called those things, don't "disagree" with homosexuality.
    your not born a homosexual lol

    It must be so because it says in the Quara and Bible. Most definitely.

    What makes you so certain that people are not born homosexuals? It exists in animals, it existed since the beginning of humanity, and really, no one would choose to be a homosexuality given the stigma that exists even it western societies.

    So...?

    Yeah, change sex. Then I'd be attracted to the same sex, so I would've changed my sexuality from straight to gay - no?
    Just answer the question - could you yourself right now choose to become sexually aroused to a handsome man in front of you, i.e. get an erection, get the butterflies in the stomach feeling, etc.

    You can't disagree with race because there is nothing exclusive to a particular race..

    They do, you just don't understand.
    What I am saying is that there isn't a particular behaviour than one entire race engages in that another does not, so what would you have to disagree on?

    Yes, because it's absolutely none of your business to express a negative view about something which does not affect you nor indeed anyone else. Add to this the history of appalling abuse and persecution gay people have face over ages and you might appreciate why posts of this type are a remnant of former legitimised intolerant times.
    what

    the dude literally asked for him to express his opinion.

    He sees people as equal, sure, but let him believe what he likes. He hasn't abused anyone, he is tolerant, he just doesn't think it's natural probably, which is his thoughts, and he's not hurting anyone, so let it be fam

    Homosexuality is not a "behaviour" or a "lifestyle". It's an innate part of someone's being, just like someone's race.

    Wow

    Homosexuals engage in a behaviour that differs to that of the majority, which is why some people would disagree with it.

    There isn't anything that one race engages in that another does not, so there isn't anything to disagree on..

    of course not! For instance, I am a practising Christian,therfore I would not agree with any other religion i.e Islam. Does that mean that I am islamaphobic-no because I still treat them the same and I have very close Muslim friends that I would even call my sisters. We are free to have opposing ideologies as we are living in a liberated system. So essentially if a person has a right to agree with homosexuality we also have the same damn right to disagree with it(this does not mean belittle them etc)

    You could disagree on the fact that all races are born equal, and that would make you a racist. In the same way, disagreeing on two men ****ing each other in the butt because it's not "traditional" makes you homophobic, because everyone is born equal and one kind of sexual behaviour is not any better or worse than another. It just exists, and you should accept it.

    Homosexuality is the state of being sexually attracted to a person of the same sex. A gay person could in theory (and many have done) go their entire life without engaging in homosexual sex. So it is clearly not a behaviour.

    You're seriously arguing over a technicality? If the word behaviour offends you then replace it with something else, my point still stands

    Yes, because it was the whole basis of your argument that homosexuality cannot be compared to race in that sense. Both are innate characteristics.

    Gay people engage in sexual acts with the same sex. Some people may disagree with that for whatever reason.

    What do black people engage in that white people do not? What do Asian people engage in that mixed race people don't?
