Deviant = a person whose behaviour, esp sexual behaviour, deviates from what is considered to be acceptable. I got that from the dictionary.
I don't care if widespread tolerance isn't obtainable. Get to the point where homophobes are a miniscule minority. Definitely seems as if homopobia still runs rampant not only on this website, but American society in general.
My support for homosexuality is because I consider myself a decent human being who hates seeing any minority group oppressed. Not any of the reasons you listed.
You paraphrased that from the dictionary but close enough.
Here you go using words you don't comprehend again. Widespread tolerance? There is widespread tolerance as it stands. Who doesn't tolerate homosexuality? What does not tolerating homosexuality look like? Becasue i disagree with it, it means I'm not tolerating it? As I mentioned, I treat everyone how I want to be treated. No ones trying to make it illegal or justify discrimination.
allow the existence, occurrence, or practice of (something that one does not necessarily like or agree with) without interference.
Only a miniscule minority do not tolerate, or more acurately, attempt to not tolerate homosexuality.
Homophobia? I'm fearful of homosexuals? Like I get anxiety if I see gay people? Thats not an accurate descriptor.
The implication of your last sentence is that support is based in decency and lack of support is based on, ....indecency? The implication is that because I disagree with it I want to see people oppressed and marginalized. It's not either fully accept homosexuality or oppress and marginalize all homosexuals, although the all too familiar hegelian dialect that plays out in the media would have you think so. You are young and/or uneducated. I can tell.
