Racist Homophobe of the Day – HAPPY TO DISCUSS. GOODBYE.

Here we go again fellas! On today’s episode of “IGNORANT RACIST HOMOPHOBE ON GRINDR” we have this dude:

And here’s the conversation I had with him:

Yet again we have a white privileged arsehole who is “entitled” to give his “preferences” without “copping an ill-informed spat from me”. Don’t you just love it when the white privilege just dribbles out of a bigot’s mouth like horse-shit?

Well instead of psycho-analysing the racism and the homophobia today, I thought it might be a nice change to give you a conversation I was having AT THE SAME TIME with an Australian Asian. I think his thoughts on the subject offer an excellent counterpoint to the douchebag above, and also show that the language used in these profiles IS OFFENSIVE to others, and DOES HAVE a serious negative impact on the well-being of those this shitty language is directed at.

As for Mr Douchebag above, all I can write is GOODBYE.


I’m cute and I’m funny, and I’m a homophobe with an intense dose of white privilege, so that’s a plus!

This guy told me he “doesn’t subscribe to the view” that the term “straight-acting” implies that to be “gay-acting” is bad (frightening flaw in his logic as we all know), and anyone whom he offends can basically just suck eggs for all he cared. 

So in this guy’s mind, just because he has decided that the meaning of words don’t apply to him, it’s everyone else’s problem if they are offended. It’s like white idiots who call their mates “n****s” and argue that they aren’t offending black people because they simply “don’t mean it that way” or in this guy’s language “don’t subscribe to the view that the word n**** is offensive in that context”.

Yet another person of white privilege who is so unused to being challenged that he couldn’t contemplate changing for even a millisecond, because in his mind he has a born right to express whatever he likes no matter how negatively it affects another individual or group – the rest be damned.

A shameful example of a gay man right here.

When will the heteronormative media stop the subtle but clear demonisation of homosexuality? I have seen this countless times in the mainstream propaganda press: a gay-related story stuck side by side with a story relating to pedophilia. It’s no wonder our younger gays come out of the closet with such underdeveloped emotional and psychological self awareness. It almost guarantees that the internalised homophobia presents itself in comments like “no pedos”, “no dirty old men”, “no filth”, “straight acting” (as though there are no heterosexual pedophiles, because heterosexuality is so “good” and “normal”). Here we have it once more, in 2012, by the so-called left-wing newspaper THE AGE (I know, I know, it’s embarrassing that such a rag could be called left wing but there you have it).

It’s hard to see racism when you’re white.
