did you mean Ben?
I don’t believe that you should fight hate with more hate. But the fact remains that homophobia - like racism and misogyny - is something awful that needs to be eradicated from the world. Homophobia isn’t an opinion, it is an act of discrimination. No I don’t believe it’s good that your homophobic friend should be insulted, but at the same time, their “views” and “opinions” are acts of fear and hate, and no one should ever be expected to put up with them and ignore them. I would like to tell your friend to get past the constraints of their religion and grow up and realise that all humans deserve equal treatment.
