Homophobia should be classed as a mental illness Watch
Vote and discuss
I won't present my arguments as of yet, in case they affect polling results.
Only giving two options, so go for the one you're more for.
It's not mental illness; it's just plain bigotry and close-mindedness. Just as racism isn't a mental illness. This viewpoint not only forgives homophobia to some extent, but it also furthers the stigma against mental illness.
It was more of a thought-provoking thread, but I have to admit many homophobes perpetually stay narrow-minded. It does affect their day to day activities and life, to hold such unnecessary hatred. I was inclined for it, but this makes me feel guilty for those with mental illnesses.
I will mayhaps reconsider my stance.
