This paper will discuss homophobia. If you don’t know what homophobia is, it is a phobia of Homosexuals. This is a major issue in society and even though this has gotten better over the years, it still occurs. If you were born around 1930-1950, you possibly have been brought up in a homophobic society. A lot of religions speak actively against LGBT+, atheists do it too. If you don’t think being Gay, Bisexual, Lesbian, Pansexual etc. is right then think of this. What if being Heterosexual was the ‘Weird thing’ and every day, when you are walking with your girlfriend/boyfriend/wife/husband/by yourself, being looked at in disgust and stared at you. Society hates you. That’s how LGBT+ people feel when you look at them. Why do you think it isn’t right for someone to follow their instinct? I do not understand why you think that? WHY? DO NOT JUDGE PEOPLE BECAUSE OF THEIR SEXUAL ORIENTATION. What have they done to you? What? Nothing (Unless they’ve killed someone etc.). So, stop judging them. Take Christianity as an example (I am not singling out Christians I am just using them as an example). The bible teaches us that being gay is a sin. But the bible also says, ‘Love thy neighbor’ and even if you don’t follow Christianity or any religion, put that into practice. You may think ‘But you’re an atheist’ Yes, I am, but that doesn’t mean I can’t take passages from the bible I like and use them to bring peace to this troubled universe! If this hasn’t changed your mind and you still think a man can’t marry a man or a woman can’t marry a woman then let me say this: What if it was your son/daughter? Would you disown them? Kick them out and tell them never to come back? If you would, I (Frankly) think you’re a monster. Do you believe that the UK parliament/US congress shouldn’t have voted for gay marriage? Well, democracy has made it choice. The right one, and you can’t change that. Does this sound familiar: ‘God hates Gays’? In a modern 1st world country, we shouldn’t have to hear that phrase. Let me list some famous people who are/where Homosexual:

  • Stephen Fry
  • Jim Parsons
  • Ellen DeGeneres
  • Ian McKellen
  • Alan Turing
  • Leonardo Da Vinci

And many, many more.
