“If you don’t hate abortion you are just as bad as the people who flew planes into the twin towers on 9/11 because God hates abortion.”
On Tuesday morning current WWE champion CM Punk tied John Cena’s 380 day title reign as the longest championship reign of the past 25 years. He was then rushed into emergency knee surgery.
“I know what it’s like when people tease you relentlessly about (being gay), and I know what it’s like when society assumes that you’re something when you were born differently,” said Abe Sargent in his article The Kitchen Table #394 – Ending Homophobia In Magic.
This article describes a personal story of how sometimes words can negatively affect someone and how even though words have been somewhat “socialized” into our culture. This article attacks the idea of how words that are used in the game magic to insult someone can actually be really offensive slurs that will demean an entire population of people. Terms such as “Gay” or “fag” have been socialized to be just an insult to someone versus what it actually is, a word that is used to insult a whole community of people; the LGBT community.
In the end Abe uses a P.S. to explain his disdain with the word homophobia and how it is incorrect on both suffixes. Homo implies same so it is does not encompass Trangendered people and the suffix phobia implies a fear which justifies their actions. This short paragraph correlates with the other article referenced in my previous blog post.
If you look at the term homophobia in a literal context it means the fear of something that is same. If you look at it by what it implies it is a fear of homosexuals. If you look at it in it what it actually is it is an ideology that promotes hatred as something that can be justified.
In this article the word homophobia is looked at and explained in a numerous of ways. It looks at it historically, literally, and in application and explains why it should not be used. By calling something a phobia you are explaining someones actions as an irrational fear they can’t control and are therefore almost justifying their actions. This article focuses on how the term phobia has been removed from the Associated Press in political and social context because it is used to justify political and social actions that are otherwise not justifiable.
