This is part of a college project so please help me by filling it in! It will hopefully help me determine today's social perceptions of homosexuality and peoples views to homophobia.

  • 2
    I understand what LGBT stands for
  • 3

  • 4
    I have never witnessed homophobia
  • 5
    I have never taken part in a homophobic attack
  • 6
    I am aware that common statements such as 'I accept it as long as it's not in my face' or 'why are you gay?' are deemed highly offensive
  • 7
    The government do as much campaigning for gay awareness as they do racial awareness and global warming issues
  • 8
    I know that names such as 'poof' and 'dyke' are branded as homophobia and by using such terms I could be charged by the police
  • 9
    When I was first introduced to same-sex awareness, it was promoted in a good light

    I think same-sex education in schools is as important as common sex education
  • 11
    The police and the government deal too lightly with homophobia
  • 12

  • 13
    Two men/women should be able to walk down the street holding hands without being stared at or challenged about their relationship
  • 14
    I believe the day will come when a gay/lesbian couple will walk down the street holding hands and it will be seen as natural as a man and a woman
  • 15
    Full equality should apply to both heterosexual and homosexual relationships in things such as: adoption, marriage and rights

It's not wise to try and ignore points of view that make you uncomfortable, the reality is that millions of people think that homosexuality is wrong, this is a fact and no amount of legislation will change this. Do you really think that a bit of legislation will change thousands of years of religious teaching in Islam and Christianity? of course it won't.
Personally I believe that gay folk should be left alone and certainly not persecuted for their sexuality under any circumstances, but I do think that marriage is not for homosexuals and can't ever be, if you believe it can be you simply do not understand what marriage is or what it means, I do however I fully support civil union for gays and lesbians.
I think the current UK government have done much to harm the gay community by legalising "same­čĺŚmarriage", it has taken away much of the individuality and uniqueness that gays and lesbians used to have, but worse than that it has stirred up a lot of anger that could have been avoided, I truly feel that David Cameron's party have harmed the gay and lesbian community in a huge way.

It says correct answers which is silly because it's all a matter of opinion i.e. there is no "correct answer about whether gay marriage is right or wrong it's simply a matter of opinion and both sides have valid viewpoints. This test is a little on the fascist side for my liking.

How could I even be a tiny bit homophobic?
