Are you homophobic?

I'm not but people seem to confuse homosexuals with pedophiles. I overheard a conversation between a bunch of moms and one said she wouldn't let her son near Santa if she knew he was gay. Do people not realize the difference between a gay guy and a pedophile? Gay guys only like GAY GUYS. Not children. I think people are just ignorant.

  • I know the difference. Like you said some people donot. I have talked to my DH about the same thing, about gays not allowed in the army. Gays do not want to rape or hit on, straight guys. So I do not see the problem with gays in the military. My DH is retired army/Field artillery.

  • No, but my husband is a hemophobe! lol . . . he faints at the sight of blood! lol

    People are ignorant and narrow minded. I have some very good friends who are gay and I would trust them with my daughter. Only an idiot would confuse a homosexual with a pedophile.

  • Well, part of intolerance is ignorance. Can you expect much out of ignorant people.

  • This is exactly what I tried to explain to my SO! Just because a guy is gay, that doesn't mean he is going to try and hit on every single guy he sees. Gay men have standards too! And gay doesn't = pedophile.

  • Peole who do this do it out of pure ignorance, or because they were taught to beleive so. They beleive being gay is wrong so they tie it up with a pedophile's disgusting ways.

  • Not at all. Whatever makes a person happy, it is really none of my business what someone does in their own life. There are just too many ignorant people in this world.
