Let's just keep it simple. State your argument and we will see who wins

Homophobes don't dislike gays because of their beliefs or opinions. Homophobes dislike gays because of their homosexual behavior.. Disliking or disapproving a behavior is not "bigotry". Therefore, anyone who believes homophobes are "bigots" are delusional

Homophobia is rooted in unwanted sexual advances (Pirlott, Angela et al)

Homophobia rooted in disgust, not fear. (Olatunji et AL 2001)"

Bigotry -"intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself.

Delusion -" A false belief held despite strong evidence against it; self-deception.


You are pathetic.
You are a monster.
An imp
An Oxygen thief
The sort of person who leaves a prostitute dying in a gutter
You are what is wrong with the world today
Please take your own life before you reproduce and further taint this planet with your genes.
Debate Round No. 1


To prove that homophobes are not bigots, if gays suppressed their homosexual desires and forced themselves to be with the opposite sex only, homophobes would not have a problem with that. I know because I'm a homophobe. This is proof that homophobes are against the behavior, not the person. Disapproving of a behavior is not "bigotry".

Debate Round No. 2


1.Gays have called people "bigots" for refusing to embrace gay marriage.

2. Embracing gay marriage embraces homosexuality because gay marriage is rooted in homosexuality.

3. Refusing to embrace a behavior is not "bigotry"

4. The problem is, gays are delusional. They view themselves as if they were a racial minority instead of a sexual minority.

5. People are not bigots for refusing to embrace polygamous marriage and incestuous marriage, Therefore, people are not bigots for refusing to embrace gay marriage

6. Gays are trying to keep themselves out of the category of sexual minorities all for the sake of having grounds to call people "bigots." Therefore, they must create a delusion that gays belong in the category with racial minorities instead of sexual minorities. In reality, gays clearly belong in the category with sexual minorities but accepting reality is not good for gays politically or socially

>Reported vote: Peepette// Mod action: Removed<

6 points to Con (Conduct, Arguments, Source). Reasons for voting decision: Pro uses semantics to make an argument which does not hold water to what could be considered reason; but is delusional in its rational. His personal homophobia is a sickness that he possesses which he attempts to spread. There is bountiful research on homophobia as consistently linked it to negative mental and physical health outcomes exhibiting depressive symptomatology and symptoms of anxiety.

[*Reason for removal*] (1) The voter doesn't explain Conduct or Source point allocations. (2) The voter inserts quite a bit of personal bias into this decision. While I don't doubt that this is a difficult debate to distance oneself from emotionally, it's the job of the judge to be impartial.

>Reported vote: tstor// Mod action: Removed<

5 points to Con (Arguments, Sources). Reasons for voting decision: Pro actually debated for all three rounds. Con forfeited one round and typed a jumbled mess in another. Easy win for Pro.

[*Reason for removal*] While a forfeit may be sufficient for allocating conduct, it is insufficient for allocating arguments points. Nor is it enough to say that one side "typed a jumbled mess". The voter needs to be clear and specific as to what arguments were successful and which ones failed.

Have been following the last few of BlackHomophobicAtheists debates which center around homosexuals. I wish he would stop the bigotry and hatred of people based on what is done behind closed doors. They do not directly affect his life. His personal homophobia is just that, a sickness that he possesses which he attempts to spread like the HIV and STDs he's so fond of contributing to the gay community. Since he has such great concern over the spread of illnesses, BlackHomophobicAtheists needs to start with immunizing himself. There is bountiful research on homophobia as consistently linked it to negative mental and physical health outcomes exhibiting depressive symptomatology and symptoms of anxiety.

What you're exhibiting to others is a form of social sanction. That, I cannot endorse. Stop gauging your self-interest based on the welfare of society. It's pathetic.

So by your own definition of bigotry, slavery can not be classified as such?

Homophobia is an irrational fear of homosexuals.

Oxford Dictionary: Bigot

chauvinist, partisan, sectarian, racist, sexist, homophobe, dogmatist, jingoist

Enough said.

I would have taken the debate if I thought the person proposing it was serious, but I am sensing a poe here.

Funny, studies seem to show that Homophobia is rooted in being HOMOSEXUAL

That's sourcing. It's also more recent than yours.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro wins points for sources and arguments by default because Con did not use any while Pro did. Con also insulted Pro, losing conduct points, and he had really bad spelling.
