Yeah, I'm a Catholic myself, and I've only ever met a few homo/transphobic in the parish, and the ones I have met are waaaaaay too traditional (my grandparents)
And before the homophobic Catholics come to say that it's in the bible that it's bad to be not straight, that was a MISTRANSLATION.
In the old days, only the priests knew Latin to read the Bible, and so they could make it into whatever they wanted and nobody would know.
Also there was a line in the bible with gay people and everyone was ok with it
Remember that line in the Bible where some men wanted to rape a male prophet? That’s wrong.
And there wasn’t a mistranslation anywhere, that’s what it means, people seem to interpret it in their own opinion nowadays tho
I’m friends with a girl who, at her school, was bullied for not being gay. You were either gay or completely ostracized. So she started acting like it and thought she was gay until she realized that she was changing herself to be what society wanted her to be. And another person who was walking by a group of people who started calling him heterophobic slurs and homophobe and things like that, and then beat him even though he didn’t say anything at all, he wasn’t mean at all and knew better than to be rude. It was so traumatic he was later diagnosed with ptsd. So he’s a bit biased now after that but managed to recover after a few months
I used to want to die because I thought something was wrong with me for not being attracted to anyone at all in any way shape or form but now I have a supportive group of friends and apparently this stream where I can come for some peace and quiet!
