Just because I’m a homophobe, doesn’t mean I think any less of them as human beings. Sleeping with another man is a thought that disgusts me….that’s all.

Being a "homophobe" connotes disgust with the person, not the act. You're digging yourself in deeper trying to rationalize / re-explain an attitude that's very clear to others already....

The slang doesn't help despite the fact that we understand you were not the originator of the terms....

Merriam - Webster Online Defines: Homophobia as irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals.

So stating that you are a homophobe but yet you don't think any less of them as human being is rather confusing to me. But now that I clearly understand your feelings on this topic, I really do recommend not attempting a business venture in California.

Don’t put words in my mouth or make your silly, half witted assumptions based off your never ending anger at the world.

First off, calm down a bit. Secondly: Who is this Peter with never ending anger at the world? Cause I sure as hell don't know him.

I think I met him once, but he was really, really drunk at the time. Or maybe that was me.

Yes, but that's only temporary anger. I'm trying to figure out when never-ending came into it.

I mean, cause everyone here knows, Peter is an excessively serious and ill-tempered person.

I'm sure Spiff would have a few things to add if he was reading this thread....

Out of curiosity, how many of you have seen the movie? I enjoyed the movie but I have to admit I was a bit shocked at the tent scene, I don't think it did anything to enhance the film, and I don't think you could call it a gratuitous sex scene, so what was the point?

I think the point of the scene was to evoke a response from the audience. I can't say I didn't feel awkward during the scene, but I certainly didn't "chicken out" and let a little man on man action ruin my enjoyment of a fine film.

Also, would we be talking about this movie if that scene didn't exist?

Haven’t ever looked up the definition of homophobia before. I just figure I was one, seeing how I’m very uncomfortable around homosexuals. Now that you’ve all taken the time to gang up on me and point out what that definition is, I do not believe I am one - as defined. But, please feel free to call me whatever you wish that makes you all feel better. I support the team culture, even if it is at my expense. Go TEAM!!

Mark S Johnson. I expect tactics like that from Peter and his loyal buddy Adam, but I thought you were bigger than that. Trying to twist my words to mean something that I clearly did not mean is wrong. I meant what I wrote. If someone’s sexual preference is the same sex, then so be it. I do not approve of it, but I do not hold the person in disgust. It is the act that I find disgusting, which is exactly what I wrote. I do not understand it, I don’t like it, and I don’t want my children exposed to it. That does not mean that the gay community in a whole is one that I am disgusted by. And by the way, go back and notice the parenthesis I put around fag drink. They actually mean something. Like….maybe I was quoting someone. You wanted opinions; you got one form the straight guy. And believe it or not, my opinion on this subject is not the minority.

For Peter’s anger, just do a search on his posts. Enough said. But you are all pretty tight, so I doubt you’d ever see him as anything but a wonderfully nice chap that never has anything derogatory to say to anyone.

Thanks for the advice Dennis. I’ll stay clear of California.

Let the flogging continue…………

Here in Portland, you'd be labelled much worse than a Homophobe. I haven't heard the terms, "fag, queer and negro" mentioned in the same breath since I was stationed in Mississippi.
