Hop Against Homophobia: Freedom of Expression — 9 Comments

  1. I showed a bunch of these post to the teens in my family to show them how hurt some “innocent” remarks are to many others. I get so annoyed when my nephew says “you’re so gay”. ERRRR drove me crazy. I know he didn’t mean anything by it but it is so wrong to use that as a saying. I think that these post have helped. Thank you all for sharing with us!

  2. Thank you very much for reading the posts. Sometimes people don’t realize they’re being hurtful. Making them aware can sometimes make a huge difference. Thanks again!

  3. Just stopping by to say hello to a my fellow blog hop participants.

    Great post which pinpoints the problem exactly. If everyone just lived and let live the world would be a much nicer place.

  4. Great post. Anything that can be done to wipe out bigotry, injustice and hatred is good IMO. We owe it to all of us who wish to live in peace and safety to keep plugging the message.

  5. Thanks for taking part, Kate!

    Thanks for sharing your post. There’s another side of the “Freedom of Expression” that has to do with the GLBTQ rights battle (I’m sure you already know what I’m talking about). It’s those homophobes and haters spewing out nonsense with intent to hurt and damage. They say it’s “Freedom of Expression”, but they forget that freedom of expression is limited, because they can’t say what they want if it harms another person/group, especially if it rallies people into action against that person/group.

    Yeah, you probably knew that, but I wanted to say it anyway in case there’s someone here who didn’t know 🙂

  6. Hi Erica,

    Thank you for starting the blog hop. It was a great idea and I’m happy to have taken part in it. There were so many great posts on the various blogs.

    I know what you mean and I agree people shouldn’t abuse their freedom and use it to hurt others. Unfortunately you can’t have true freedom by silencing those who don’t agree with a particular point of view. You just can’t lose the hope that people will see that hate isn’t the way.

    Thanks again!
