best tumblr 10/10
when you’re trying to research something and you end up on wikipedia and you’re like ‘this article looks familiar’, not just because you’ve seen it before, but because you edited it
I mean, most of the straight girls I know are actually pretty chill, while the dudes are super "no homo omg." I'd say like, 9/10 straight dudes are homophobic and like 6/10 straight girls are, if you include the ignorant-but-"well-meaning homophobia. Idk. Maybe i just have good not-a-homophobe-dar, but all the straight girls I've told/talked to about the topic are really chill about it. They aren't perfect, and sometimes they're ignorant as fuck, but they aren't as aggressively hateful about it.
Definitely not in my experience, and apparently also according to some stats/study/etc (does anyone have a link to that one?). The less gender conforming you are, the worse they are to you, too. Idk your gender conformity and exact orientation, but keep in mind that the more you fit gendered expectations, the more acceptable you are. I also found there is a distinct difference in hostility whether I was calling myself bi at the time, or now that I call myself a lesbian. Also, whenever I come out to a (relatively decent) straight girl now, I always get the, “Oh, well, it’s good you’re not one of those bull dykes! You know, the super butch ones?”
Here’s a couple free-access studies:
Raja and Stokes (1999): Heterosexual men and women were equally likely to be homophobic towards lesbians, but the types of homophobia were different.
Polimeni et al. (2000): Heterosexual women (and men) who held feminist beliefs regarding gender roles still scored high levels of homophobia. Heterosexual women were as homophobic towards lesbians as heterosexual men were towards gay men.
Hideaki Anno’s Neon Genesis Eddvangelion is truly the best anime ever produced.
