International Day Against Homophobia - Blog Hop



Welcome!

Homophobic discrimination is a serious issue in every single country on this planet, no matter how big or small. Some countries are more advanced in GLBTQ rights, while in some countries the penalty for being a GLBTQ person is death. All over the world, GLBTQ people are shunned by society, beat up, tortured, raped, and stripped of human rights in various ways. What makes people believe that they have the right to strip someone of their human rights is beyond us.

The Hop Against Homophobia is an attempt by over 250 m/m authors, reviewers and publishers to stand together and create awareness of homophobia. Each participating blog will feature a message on homophobic discrimination in its various forms. The date, May 17th, was chosen in honor of the International Day Against Homophobia and we're hoping to get people more involved with this day by inviting them to our blogs, where the visitors have a chance to win prizes.

  4. I never understood how people could cast aside their children for being gay and still consider themselves good Christians.

  7. As a parent, I really don't get it. When I got pregnant, I didn't realize that it was something I could opt out of later if I decide I didn't care for something my kid did or who they were. Where I come from, it's forever, even when they are driving you up the wall.

  8. How could a parent's love be conditional? Even now, it happens too often. Great post.

  11. One parents love should never be conditional and it's sad that it takes so little for some to abandon their children.

  12. Thanks so much for sharing. I agree, parents' love is supposed to be unconditional. Your kid comes out and you disown them. They were born that way, you chose to throw them away. Who's the real failure? Anyways, thanks for participating!

  13. I really don't understand parents who throw away their kids because they aren't straight. What are they afraid of? That people will talk? Who the hell cares? Your child needs you.

  14. 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!
