A mature adult question about alternate sexuality
« on: September 02, 2020, 06:22:16 AM »
Greetings syntaxbombers.

I was reading my local news site link attached and I'm genyinely unsure why some men would bash another man over their sexuality especially when as I logically see it the heterosexual assaulter is assaulting someone who poses no threat to their procreation options?

?

I just don't get why it happens?

It happens because some people don't understand or know how to channel their hate in a way that diffuses it.

Indeed, also depending on an idiosyncratic religious upbringing, it's highly plausible such a thing could cause resentment to a persons sexual orientation.

I gave up trying to understand people a long time ago.  There's barely a day goes by that I don't watch the news, reporting on some dumb shit or other and say to myself "WTAF?".

Attacking someone for being black, gay, fat, spotty, ginger (Dabz, you know I love you!), disabled, or whatever else, is really just bullying - some total dickweed targeting others they believe to be easy targets because they're perceived to be weaker than themselves.  Some grow out of it, and some don't.  They'll just go through their entire lives, raging at everyone else for no good reason until they end up either in prison, or picking the wrong victim and getting knocked back down to earth.

Sadly, they also reproduce.  ::)

I agree with Gfk. I'm on Facebook, and you see someone make a sensible comment, only to be shot down by plenty of 50 something bigots spouting all sorts of poisonous nonsense.

I'm limiting my time there now, some people are pure poison. How did the UK and America become full of so many angry bigoted, racist, homophobic morons?

I think the arseholes have always been there.  It's just that social media, as it calls itself, has given them a channel for their hate.

I ditched Twitter for good recently - the whole platform is toxic.  Even moreso since it now insists on force-feeding you stuff that's "trending", as well as showing you what other people have "liked" or replied to.  You can't just follow decent people and that's ALL it shows you.  It pushes the world in your face like it wants you involved, and I don't want to be.

I do still have Facebook but I hardly ever bother with it and I've only got about ten people on it (and I'm related to all but one of them).

@Gfk I don't even have a twitter or facebook, I knew though's places would become pile.
I only lurk around twitter for game dev, but even using the hashtag brings up unrelated nonsense.

Side note:
Confronting bigot street preaches and pastors here is a sport for me.
I generally just mess with the local Jehovah witness elders lately .... A bunch a bigots that lot.
