Homophobia exacts a chilling price as hate crimes climb Gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgendered people: be wary of bullying homophobes in the United Kingdom. People will hate for not a reason worth believing in. Homophobia makes me feel bad as a person. However, I believe in the LGBT cause!! Sexual minorities are more open about their lives than before - resulting in increasing tension from homophobes. THIS IS NOT YOUR FAULT. It's the fault of a stunted society that believes only a certain type of love and sexuality is allowed. Do not fear them, do not listen to them. If you're LGBT, do not stop showing it or even try to stop "being gay" just because someone's harassing you for it. BE YOURSELF AND LOVE YOURSELF. DO NOT LET THESE PEOPLE STOP YOU FROM THAT. Realize your potential as a human being, people!
