Homophobia is Beautiful

Antwan Bradford, Staff Writer

Satire: the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues. 

Honestly, sincerely, “homophobia is beautiful,” said a man in Russia, obviously way ahead of his time. No really, if someone finds out that you yourself are interested in anything that has to do with intimacy with the same-sex, they have the right to show their disdain by scooting away from you to distance themselves.

I have a disease, if anything I’ll just infect others with my own propaganda of not conforming to herterosexual society, the mainstream society. I shouldn’t even have homosexual thoughts at my age, it’s too soon to tell whether I want to condemn myself or not.

Heaven forbid that I’m a homosexual, even to the extent to where I must downplay my feminine mannerisms in order to keep conveying the fact that “I’m not too gay” for someone to be around. I must downplay who I am to let others be satisfied with my behaviors. I must downplay every hand movement, roll of the neck and pronunciation of every word to not be “too gay.”

When I’m doing behind-the-wheel training, it’s ok for me to agree with the talkative instructor that a girl is pretty because if I say otherwise that I’m not interested, I might have to find a new instructor. It’s ok for me to hold my tongue from saying how I really feel about a certain someone because it’ll honestly be my fault that I get mugged or jumped for my unpopular opinions.

The majority does have power over the minority; therefore, the majority can choose what the minority rights can be. That seems to be working spectacularly, it’s a godsend that we have standards of what love is thrust upon us because it’s not like we can figure out what love is.
