When I tell people I don`t like gays, they call me a homophobic. I guess you could call me a homophobic, but only if you could call the Nazis Jewophobic."

^^HELL YA! i agree with this

The nazis WERE ANTISEMITIC, not jewophobic.

I like to call it utter stupidity though. like homophobia or xenophobia.

I came out 3 years ago as a bisexual.
Imagine how akward it was when I realized that I didn`t feel like I was attracted to men at all a few months later. Oops.

Now I know it`s for gay people due to the videos. But does the day have to specifically be for gay people. The title is so vague that it could be coming out an admitting your a check all that apply;
Atheist
White
Black
Not Black
Christian
Muslim
The Anti-Christ
(write in)___________

Why can`t there be a day about just admitting stuff you`re afraid of admitting and do something so the name relates back to IAB.

All right, I`ll come out...don`t laugh everyone...

I`m normal.. I don`t act normal so people can`t tell. I act insane, so people think I am crazy. I act gay so people would never guess that I am really straight. I do things so people would never find out about the real me.

I feel so ashamed! *runs and hides*

My dog is gay, and I`d walk in a pride parade for him. I don`t think gays should marry- of course I don`t think anyone should! Look at what marraige has become!

Be who you are, whatever that may be.

PANSEXUAAAALITY.

Does that mean I`m `out`? At least to the people online. Although I did stick a drawing on my wall by the computer saying `pansexuality`, so I guess my family knows.

Pansexuality~~

I`m gay.
You know what I hate worse than homophobes? The people that bash on homophobes.
If us gay`s want the right to voice our opinion, we shouldn`t have any problem with others voicing theirs.

my substitute teacher often asks this guy if he` gay.
then, to cover up the fact that hes picking on only him, he asks the whole class.
of course, he means he`s happy...
right?

If I have a gay child, I`m going to make sure that he/she never feels like they can`t tell me. There is nothing wrong with being gay. You`re born gay and as long as you are only involved with other consenting adults, then it`s your business. I`m sick of all the homophobes.

The term is anti-semitic, you twat. And I believe a lot of people did and DO call the Nazis that, on account of them being very anti-semitic.

"And for some sicko reason many straight athletes just get all weird if they know another athlete (teammate or not) is gay. There`s going to be homophobia in sports for a long time coming."

Yeah I know, and in a way I can understand where they are coming from. For instance in rugby, there are some "intimate" moments like in the scrum where the second row has to hold on to the waistband of the props. It can be a bit awkward and uncomfortable even for 2 straight guys let alone a straight guy and a gay one.

"This is wrong. They should choose when they want to come out, not make a day of it."

For most people, yes, but for some others, they just need to get some sort of motivation to get it moving. By having a `day` for it, these people can feel that they`re not alone. In theory at least.

And for some sicko reason many straight athletes just get all weird if they know another athlete (teammate or not) is gay. There`s going to be homophobia in sports for a long time coming.

This is wrong. They should choose when they want to come out, not make a day of it. I have friends who still are afraid of telling the people they love that they are gay. It`s unreal, but I still feel they should make it on their own time, their own day and in their own manner.

For me, my initial coming out reluctance was more about my fear about the way people would see me. I knew everyone would accept me, i was just worried that people would sterotype me into a more effeminate person that i am. I love playing sports (tri-varsity athlete thank you very much) and just hanging out with other guys down at the bar just shooting the breeze playing poker etc.. and i was afraid i would lose that if I came out of the closet. When i finally admitted to everyone i was gay there was a period where there was some awkwardness between me and my friends. However once they got over the initial shock and realized i was the same person, everything basically went back to normal.

for those out there have reservations about gay athletes on your team or playing against you, dont be afraid. We`re more about kicking your a** rather than looking at it

W00t @ gayness!

Seriously...I don`t understand why people are "in the closet" to start with. I know the are homophobes out there, especially in the USA (Not saying there isn`t any anywhere else, but the USA isn`t a 3rd world country). (Yet).

I don`t understand hate/discrimination I guess (maybe because I was raised right). I never understood racism, antisemitism or homophobia. I simply have it in my head that if I was part of the group, I wouldn`t want to be treated different just because I am different from them in some way. Unless I was retarded/Down Syndrome, then I think I should have been put down less than 10 minutes after birth, why ruin my parent`s life with my constant retard problems?

Well I`m bisexual and have been in a relationship with another woman for the past 19 months or so and am incredibally happy. But everyone in my life knew I was that way inclined as soon as I realised myself. I`m not one to keep things bottled up.
