Thread Name: Homophobia in Playground Rhymes
Subject: RE: Homophobia in Playground Rhymes
I find the term homophobia inappropriate for the discussion as well.
The chants/rhymes show that children do descriminate, but there is a difference in discriminating between different lifestyles and discriminating against different lifestyles.
Many people (particularly those who are in minorities) seem to assume that any discrimination is to their disadvantage.
