People in my school I swear are either prejudice or homophobic. We have a gay couple in my class, and people don't want anything to do with them. They throw insults and they even bully them! That is just sickening. Now, if they were a lesbian couple, most of the guys would be getting kinky because the like the sight of two girls kissing.

I know that they wouldn't have it any easier because of what the idiot guys do around them to egg them on. The poor girls can't get a moment of peace.

my best friend just told me she's bi today.
to be honest, i wasn't very surprised. she's been dropping hints, and i've known her long enough to kinda guess. but i have to admit, i'm not sure i belive her. she's one of those people who.... well, sometimes gets the truth a bit mixed up. hey, if she's really bi, then i support her. i just think that she's more confused than bi.

I'm bisexual myself..But when I confessed this to my best friend, whom I've know since 7th grade, freaked and started crying....(I told this to her in my Junior year of High school because I thought she'd be mature enough to handle it, but I guess it wasn't the case)

Anyways, I applaud you for being so mature about it and supportive of her..even if she might be bi-curious..

thanks ^_^

about your friend, that sucks that she freaked, but i can understand why she might have. it's upsetting when someone you thought you knew really well turns out different than you thought. the main reason i didn't freak out when my friend told me is because i've kinda been wondering about it for a long time. the other reason is, of course, because i love her no matter what her preferance is.

As long as homos are good persons, I don't mind them and their love and don't get disgusted at all. No. If they love each other, I wish them best :)

Then you might want to refrain from using the term "homos". That can be offensive.

I agree. Most people would rather be called gay then be called a homo. That is how sensative the situation can be sometimes. And I'm not trying to sound like a bitch when I say this.

I didn't find your post insulting at all. Normally, I associate the word "homo" as a slanderous kind of word, because I've normally heard that word as an insult. Me and my ex-girlfriend, we used to get insults all the time (mostly from guys, if you can believe it), and they used to yell things, like "YOU'RE A FUCKIN' HOMO!" or whatever. So yeah, I don't particularly care for that word, either.

I dislike the slang usage of homo. Not because it offends me, but because it makes it impossible to reference the latin word "homo" in any form (homo sapiens, homo faber, etc.), without some twit getting giggly about it. Now, I'm all for lame jokes, but it can, and does, get old pretty damned fast. Especially in a debate.

It's kinda like how you can't play older songs with the word "gay" in them anymore, without it becoming The Joke That Wouldn't Die. e_e;

Um..she's stating that Sailor V's post wasn't insulting, not yours. Neon Heart DOESN'T like the use of the word "homo". She wasn't complimenting you.

Joey: The question is, Rachel, does he like you? ''Cuz if he doesn''t, then it''s all just a moo point.
Rachel: Huh...a...moo point?

"Homo" sounds ignorant or offensive in English, but Dr Tomoe is from Estonia so he probably didn't realize that. Just pointing that out.

Anyway, Christian Chavez from Rebelde (RBD) came out this week. There's my contribution.

A couple days ago, someone started a topic on IMDb about the use of the word ‘gay’ as an insult. The topic’s been deleted, I suppose, because I can’t find it. But it basically said that "it's stupid to get offended when someone uses 'gay' as an insult. Since it’s already been changed from 'happy' to ‘homosexual’ it doesn’t matter if someone changes the meaning again and makes it mean 'stupid'." (something along those lines.)
...what do you think of this statement?
