What's so wrong with being Gay?

Why are so many people homophobic? What do you have against a man loving another man or a woman loving another woman? Love is something that every person in this world feels or is capable of feeling. So what if that love happens to be directed at someone of the same gender? Big whoop.

Now I, myself am straight, but I support Gay Rights. Why? Because I was raised to be accepting of people who were different from me. Not only that, I also have homosexual relatives.

Speaking of which, I do understand that some people were raised to be intolerant of difference, but that explanation only goes so far.

Is this all merely an outward reaction to the insecurity (conscious OR subconscious) in one's own sexuality? Or is there something else to it?

Now, I'm gonna be honest here because I'm sure someone out there is gonna read this and start throwing bible passages in my face: I, not being religious, haven't taken the time to read the bible. But if you do start to throw bible passages in my face, I will verify your words. The internet is a vast encyclopedia of everything, including every version of the Holy Bible of the Christian faith. Just FYI.

So, again, will someone please explain their reasons behind their homophobia to me?

@Baldimo,
Okay then, let me restate that: Why are so many people against homosexuality?

That better?

No it isn't.

This isn't a loaded question?

@RexDraconis111,
Most of the homophobic bitches allow ignorance to get in their way.

@jcboy,
Good point, but then that begs the question: Why don't they bother to educate themselves, thus dissolving their ignorance?

Education is the last thing the homophobic wants to hear about.

Sure, that's a loaded question, but then that wasn't the statement that I was commenting upon.

@edgarblythe,
Another good point, but then they just start pissing people off again. Not that I would force them to learn, as that would go against my beliefs as well as another topic of mine in this site:

This could be asked of any ridiculously prejudiced mentality. And edgar answered it perfectly.

Yes he did. And if you read the comment right above yours, you'll see that I gave him credit for a good point.

Seriously, though, other than ignorance, is there actually a logical reason why people seem to think that being gay is wrong?

Perhaps they fear the gay potential, deep within themselves, and are afraid their homophobic world will find out about it.
