Reading through the homophobic article had me thinking how homo fanatic our society really is. At first it was taboo, (and in some places it still is), then it became disgusting, and then it transitioned into an awkward phase, and finally it’s accepted in more places than a Discover card.
Although the article does brush up on the fact that there is a huge degree of separation between the homophobic and society, I feel that converting a homophobe to homo tolerant is actually easier with music and certain influence.
Lil Wayne for example raps about the kissing his daddy or loving his crew and says “v homo” to stamp his heterosexuality. So Lil Wayne recognizes that kissing another man or showing love to his boys is gay for a straight male to do. He interjects his song or rap verse with the use of No Homo. Meaning he can do things that a homo sexual can do with out judgement.The fact that he is doing these things makes him comfortable around gay actions. Its only a matter of time before he’ll be doing theae things without the use of no homo. And it’s only a hop jump skip away from being ok with other guys being into guys (or girls into girls).
The reality of this is that tolerance from this particular phobia requires intelligence, education, socialization, critical thinking, and patience.
what do you think we need as a society to really get through to the homophobic?
