My rant is about how extremely ignorant it is is to use those words as insults when someone acknowledges their homosexuality. It's all I can do not to tell those stupid insulting asshats to get better material. Hello, yes, these people know their own orientation, and by choosing to insult them in such a way, those who participate in that behavior are merely showing their own limited intellectual capabilities. There is nothing original in saying those things. Such terms are merely a derogatory method of restating what the people you insult freely admit to. For heaven's sake, would it kill them to employ a dictionary or thesaurus? Homophobia on its own is a blasphemy to me, but the sheer and utter lack of originality present in homophobes somehow makes it hurt worse.
I consider myself of open orientation. I also come from a family that is in many ways very homophobic. Now, don't get me wrong. I love my family, but the homophobic, racist garbage is what I can't stand. and a lot of it is just as unoriginal tripe. Sometimes I have to stop myself screaming: "God, save me, I'm related to judgmental homophobes!" I suppose it's quite a talent to be both boring and hurtful, but somehow this particular subset of people manage that rather well. Sad to say that my relatives, whom I love, have something in common with the net trollers I can't stand, but it's the truth. Not only is it boring, but it leaves me wanting to hide even more. Homophobia sucks. Love is love, no matter what. God bless anyone who doesn't agree, because obviously their brains malfunctioned somewhere. That is all. Please leave those of us with working brains alone, or at least find insults that are more creative, because the ones you use lack entertainment value. *Snort*
