What's worse being Homophobic or racist?

Racist

Homophobic

I'd say both are detrimental handicaps that hold society, and and the human race as a whole, back.

Gays don't hold us back people like you who think its wrong and are against. why can't straights and gays co-exist, why can't society let them be themselves. What your doing is like saying to child, who was born blind, that they can't have a service dog to help them.

"Gays don't hold us back"

I never said that they did. If you look at my original argument, you'd see that I said HOMOPHOBIC people hold us back.

Both are pretty bad. Ironically, both conditions are held by the same type of person.

No one can help what race they are, whereas someone chooses to be in a gay relationship with someone.

They can choose weather or not to be in a relationship, however they cannot choose to be gay. Whilst i agree that racism is worse, due to its greater social effects, i dispute your logic.

Being gay, they are going to be in a relationship with someone of the same sex at some point with as much likellyhood as you having a straight relationship.

If by homophobic it's the hatred of people who simply ARE gay, then I think it's just as bad as racism.

But if it's mere hatred of Homosexual acts, then racism if definitely worse.

no one can help if they are gay, or straight. i bet if you were to ask a gay person if they choose to be gay they would tell you no. now to all those homophobes out there i say this to you "GET OVER IT!"

<__< I've asked before, and some WILL say that they chose it.

Side: homophobic

I DO support that homophobic people need to get over it, because it IS a choice, and a personal choice that anyone has a RIGHT to make without being criticized or bothered for it.

100% WRONG.

It's the act of homosexuality I oppose, not homosexuals.

I hate smoking, but I don't hate smokers.

I don't believe we choose to be hated by everybody. If you were a homosexual or bisexual I think you might understand. It's what we like, not who we chose to be. If you like french fries and not curly fries, it's not like you CHOSE not to like them, right?

No, it's more like (as I said before) smoking.

A lot of people hate smoking, and get mistaken for hating smokers.

If you were a homosexual or bisexual I think you might understand.

Precisely. I am gay, but I choose to remain celebate. If you were a homosexual or bisexual you would know that not everyone chooses to lie with someone of the same sex, even if they desire it.

Side: racist

As a person who encounters racism more than problems with homophobia, I am inclined to say racism is worse, but I DO realize that both are horrible and atrocious.

I WILL say that, as a Christian, I AM in disagreement with homosexuality as a lifestyle. However there is a very STRONG line between disagreeing with something and actually causing harm to another person for having a difference in opinion.

I DO however believe that homosexuality can be a choice. I have good friends who are gay, and even they can admit that they made a choice at some point in their lives. I think that it will depend on the person. [I STILL don't think it's genetic though. I think it's more of a mindset that one builds over time.]

I also think racism MIGHT be worse due to how much more it effects the world we live in. Racism has caused so many problems to a WIDER population that homophobia, and it dictates so many things in our daily lives, like how we treat and see people before we get personal with them.

Racism is an INITIAL response, but homophobia seems to be(form what I've seen) a gradual response.

Either way, I DO believe that racism is worse than homophobia.

When you are racist, you are limiting yourself from a wider range of people than being homophobic. Yes, there are a lot of homosexuals but when you are homophobic to a homosexual black man, you are limiting yourself from him, and not a whole race. (And i am not saying black people are homosexuals). In other words, what would you rather choose: have lots of opportunities of benefits and friends, or have less opportunites and friends. Well that depends on you, but i will choose the first option.

If your phobic to something, it is fear. Not hatred. Racism on the other hand is stale and stupid. It's immoral. You don't need no more a reason to like it or dislike it.

You are saying that racists tend to be gay? A ludicrous statement.

There is something wrong with being a homophobic, it is having a phobia towards a type of person. A person whom cannot help who they are, but are attacked both verbally and physically due to their orientation.

To the debate question at hand: both due nothing to help the human race, and are nothing but detrimental. I would say both are equally in a state of worthlessness.

Yes. Not gay as in i take 'it up the bum' gay but gay as in 'you're a fag', gay.

If there's something wrong with being a homophobe then there's something wrong with being a homosexual. Neither of them can help who they are.

There is something wrong with being a homophobe. It effects people. It makes people want to kill themselves. I'm bisexual and i've had to deal with homophobes becauseof it. Homophobes are the type of people that are just afraid of what's new; what's different. Just because someone likes their same sex doesn't make them a bad disgusting person. it makes them an honest person. people don't get to choose if they are gay or not. the only choice they have to make is whether they want to be pretend to be something they are not or be honest and happy. Homophobia is actually somewhat similar to being racist because they might not be against them because of a skin color, but they are against people for who they are. You can't help to be who you are.

I think it would be more appropriate instead of the word 'homophobic' that "sexual discrimination against homosexuals" would be a far more appropriate term.

That said, they are just a bad as each other; the only difference being that race/racism was alot more open and easy to identify. Homosexualality has only become accepted within the mainstream in the last 10 years.

I actually think it would be appropriate for us to call them homophobes when they call us homo's. Name calling is a thing that no one ever gets over. This is not to start an argument it's just to say that if we should respect them by saying the have sexual discrimination against homosexuals then maybe they could try and call us homosexuals for once. Not homo's, not faggots, not gay, homosexual.

Being Racist, because it's evil. Hating fags is pure and patriotic.

So when scientists do locate the gene that alters the human orientation, I wonder if you will retract that statement or continue on being an idiotic homophobic extremist.

Are you familiar with the saying ignorance is bliss?

I'd say it's worse to be homophobic because racism has been around since (and even though i do not believe in it i shall reference it) bible times. Being a homophobe is pretty sad. It's like putting a whole group of people in exile for preferring yellow to blue.

I only went with Homophobic because there was no there as bad as each other button!! Hating someone for who they are is ridiculous, I am a strong believer in live and let live

Side: Homophobic

Homophobia is today's 60's racism.

There is honestly no difference between the two versions of discrimination, the only difference is that racism isn't as big a problem these days, and homophobia is.

So right now, it's worse being homophobic, because you are contributing to the active problem of today. Being openly racist will get you hated by many and liked by few. Being openly homophobic will get you hated by few and liked by many.

Side: Homophobic

I will say homophobic because it is a strict hatred toward a group of people and the hatred is so severe that some homophobic people wish death toward homosexuals.
