Azizi....."Birds of a feather ,flock together".
I am sorry,my friend,but history teaches us that ,whichever way you look at it,from a purely anthropological point of view,those who do not, cannot,or will not,for whatever reason,conform to the "Norm" in any society,are going to be sidelined or even excluded,and certainly discriminated against,and,quite probably,feared.
Having said that, I think that it is wrong to use the word "Homophobia",as most of us "straight" or "normal" guys are not actually AFRAID of homosexuals, we just find the thought of what they do DISGUSTING and REPULSIVE ! I mean, I don't want to do that kind of thing with a WOMAN, let alone another man-----YUUUK !! And most women I know wouldn't want me to,or let me,even if I did !!So try and understand why the MAJORITY are against it ( it's called "Democracy" in some cultures).And try to understand why kids are kids,and not sexually orientated, or disorientated,adults----they'll find out which way the wind blows,in the fullness of time !! Let them be kids first, eh ??
