comparing homophobia to racism is a prime example of white gay privilege
Hmm. I do see where this is coming from, but I think that’s a little bit of a leap. I don’t know of any “gay privilege” regardless of race, and I think that people put homophobia in the same category as racism to show that homophobia is just as wrong. It’s not necessarily trying to diminish the importance of racial issues. Gay rights, equal rights for all races, gender equality - they are all human rights and I think it’s important to recognize that.
It was one of those crazy things where you look at the guy, and that’s it, you’re done for, and you can’t quite figure out why.
