I am puzzled by the evident obsession some (a vocal minority) of heterosexuals have for attacking homosexuality. I cannot recall ANY homosexuals attacking heterosexuality
. Note: I not saying homosexuals don't attack heterosexuals based on the heterosexual's opinions on homosexuality. I am saying homosexuals don't attack heterosexuals merely on the basis that they ARE heterosexual.

So what is the obsession about?

Religious bias, prejudice, and homophobia. Those are the reasons that I have personally observed. And I've pretty much listed it in order from the most likely to do it to least. In all cases it's pure ignorance.

There are vocal minorities of all kinds that attack many things with vigor. What is it with people's obession about pointing out that it also happens to homosexuality?
The wise have eyes in their heads, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realizethat the same fate overtakes them both.
Then I said to myself,
"The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?"
I said to myself, "This too is meaningless."
For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!

You make a valid point. So let's expand the question to why they are so obsessed with attacking minorities?

Yes indeed !!! Who and why? What are their motives? Is it just bullying? Arrogance? Low self-esteem ? What do they hope to gain?

Oh just people in general? Well it's because they're easy targets. They aren't generally as integrated/accepted/powerful in society so for any number of reasons a person who must attack others will logically pick an outcast or minority group out of ease.

Why, there are many reasons for this sort of bullying and singling out of minorities. There is the common one: jealousy. There are others such as hatred and low confidence. But in this case, people bully homosexuals due to our inability to accept others' differences. Humans' ignorance and stubborness keeps people from accepting anyone who is different: whether of a different sexuality, ethnicity, gender, or religion.

Religion, and fear of that which is different. A gay person is probably going to see tons of heterosexuals, so he's used to them. Simple, unfortunate, but true.
