Homophobia may be the go-to word for many on here, but if you want to gain a better understanding on the position of others, it may be time to discard these all-inclusive labels.
All the convenient, hackneyed, misused phraseology which has become de rigeur of today's intelligentsia needs a good overhaul. Blanket statements which put people in baskets, are desultory, and do nothing more than push even moderate folk back into a corner - with predictable results.
Think anything with 'phobia' or 'ist' (like misogynist etc) on the end of it - hurled at someone or some group you don't understand. The very folk who say, 'you don't understand the LGBTQI+ community' often have an intolerant and jaundiced view of anyone who does not show 100% vocal support of the LGBTQI+ community - and doesn't want to understand them. 'Us and Them' perpetuated.
We live in an information age, and we like to correlate the volume of our information with how enlightened we are. So like every generation we celebrate how emancipated we are. We have shaken off the shackles of the past. People who are religious are old-fashioned; at best, meddling do-gooders, at worst, hateful intolerant Fascists and probably pedophiles to boot. Yay for our new (non-religious) high moral ground.
Anyway - this is all very serious for a footy forum.
Time for some rainbow levity - if you dare:
