so i read this post by @mehrjuanagrey today and boy oh boy is it messed up so here’s my response 1. you’re not part of the lgbtq+ community, so please stay in your lane, your opinions are not opinions, they harm a whole community, they are prejudices 2. homosexual people want their voice to be heard because no one listens to them as in the end the heterosexuals are debating our lives which is fucked up 3. the word homophobia was invented by a straight psychiatrist, George Weinberg, because he noticed his peers had discomfort coupled with fear around a lesbian friend 4. being an ally is not equal to being a part of the lgbtq+ community, being an ally simply means you want the same rights for the community as anyone else, and no one is forced into it ffs we live in a heteronormative world 5. please don’t use the religion card. you do realise homophobia arrived after colonisation? people were openly gay in a lot of muslim societies. and Lut’s people were stingy and they raped other men, they had no desire, they just wanted to assert their authority on them. they were not gay, they only did illicit homosexual acts. there’s a fucking difference. the word homosexuality was coined by scholars much after the quran was revealed anyway. 6. also i checked the seven deadly sins of islam on various sources, homosexuality isn’t in them. stop forging sahih ahadis. 7. also what do you mean “believing” in homosexuality. mate, gay people exist, and not up for debate. 8. the closet exists because of straight people. why? because straight people will not accept anyone who isn’t like them, we are scared of being rejected and killed; thus there being a closet 9. and why do you find it so offensive when the lgbtq+ community has justified anger? do you even know what people have to go through? imagine being illegal in 74 countries. no wonder the community is more susceptible to mental illnesses and ultimately suicide, that’s how shit life is. 10. oh and i feel bad for your queer friends. imagine being friends with someone who believes you don’t have the right to exist and you’re doomed to destruction because of something you can’t control. seems like toxic behaviour to me.
