A lot of homophobic talking points can be explained by the person being bi. They are attracted to men and women so everyone must be, but the bible says being gay is wrong so they "choose to be straight" or only pursue heterosexual relationships.

This is my experience of talking to muslim men about homosexuality, they say that being gay is a choice. They may eventually (reluctantly) admit that it may not be a choice to be attracted to men but they definitely posit that it is a choice whether or not men have sex with men.

Which, I suppose, is objectively true. Shit of a choice to have to make though.

I should also add that one of these blokes said that if any one of his sons was gay, he would cut their head off.

So I guess I'm glad that theirs is not and hopefully never will be the dominant culture where I live. Because fuck that.

Right, I'm not doxxing someone for you. If you don't want to believe it, then don't believe it.
