Would you have been anti-gay if you had grown up straight?

    Would you be anti-gay? Considering your background, surroundings, upbringing, family, etc. if you were never gay do you think you would have turned out to be anti-gay?

    I am not sure....but I would think I might not be particularly supportive of gays given everything. I also think I might be considerably less 'liberal' in my attitudes and beliefs.

    What about you?

    I grew up in a very diverse and pretty forward thinking community. Even my religious community was on the progressive end the spectrum. I don't think if I were straight that I would have developed anti-gay views. I grew up being a people pleaser so I genuinely tried to like everyone.

    The way I was raised, no. But based on my surroundings and people I use to hang out with, and let's say I went that path...absolutely. I'd probably have a couple of baby mamas and selling drugs too.

    As a person who loves science, I would be pro gay. And probably would have either a baby mama or a previous marriage by now. I'm sure of it.

    I imagine Id be pretty solid in my support for equality. I just know that Ive always ALWAYS hated bullies, so I can't imagine not looking at things the same way.

    And I know 100% id be married to some fine azz black woman w 2.5 kids, a dog, etc.

    This is an interesting question. Aside from general homophobic ideology that everyone gets by virtue of living in this world, my family is pretty open, so I wouldn't get any serious hostility from my direct contacts. It would probably take some additional effort, but I'd probably still lean progressive.

    There is also an age thing related to this I think. Growing up in the 60's and 70's was much different than growing up in the 90's. There was virtually nothing positive about gays in most of America in those earlier times. Younger gays have some benefits from growing up in more enlightened times(fortunately). Kids/teens could find virtually no good info about gays-there was no internet, not even cable tv-three or four tv channels and that was it for most.

    I think I'd be pretty progressive. My family are all pretty gay friendly (I have two lesbian aunts, in fact) so I'm pretty sure I'd be the same. Heck, even my grandparents, who are Jehovah's Witnesses don't have an issue with gay people, granted, I'm pretty sure they believe anyone who isn't baptized as a Witness is doomed anyway, so they just love all their heathen relatives while they can lol.
