sexuality politics 

why do people think it's ok to be actively against straight people
that's EXTREMELY cringe
y'know people don't choose that, right? would you just prefer nobody ever gets born?

re: sexuality politics 

@riku Why can't people just let everyone be whatever they want

re: sexuality politics 

@enigmatico like these people are against all types of, let's say, homophobia because "being gay is not a choice", so why are they against heterosexuality which is ALSO not a choice?!

re: sexuality politics 

@riku Because they probably think that everyone who is not like them is the enemy because they think they are against them.

i.e straight people is against homosexual/bisexual people.

sexuality politics 

@riku gender is a spook

re: sexuality politics 

@riku tbh a lot of people around here think heteros don't actually exist for other reason than LGBTQstuffphobia and are actually unaware pansexuals

which sounds paternalistic to say the least ngl

@riku

Yeah I really don’t get those people also it just gives *phobes more reason to hate so their just doing the opposite of securing belonging

Like if you want to own them you would act opposite of the prejudiced expectations

re: sexuality politics 

@Meeper mmm yes fighting phobia with phobia, amazing

re: sexuality politics 

@riku I thought it was the other way around! I thought straight people be hating on minorities like gays and lesbians. (/s)

sexuality politics 

@riku Some people have felt so much pain that they choose a lifestyle of hurting others 💁🏾‍♂️

Not an excuse just an explanation

sexuality politics 

@riku Agreed. Love people for who they are. We're all different.

re: sexuality politics 

@riku My theory is that people think that all straight people hate them. It's not really a justified or rational fear, but when people don't feel accepted, it can be very easy to adopt a defensive stance that acts offensively. The irony here is that I'm sure there are also straight people that feel like people that are not straight hate them and the same thing happens.

The only solution I see is for people to genuinely let others know that they accept them. Sometimes you'll hit some rocky patches with this, but over time, good will win out.

If you try to break this social barrier of fear and it doesn't work out, I accept you and I'm proud of you for trying.
