Hi, i have something say. Im a 20yr old straight female. And just a moment ago on facebook someone that doesnt even know me called me a homo. At first i took offence to this but maybe not for the reasons you think. First of all no guy or infact no other human should talk like that to someone else asthough its an insult. Seriously why do they think its an insult in that way. Also what does that say for everyone else out there that is homosexual, thats no fair on them. There sexual oriantation should NOT be thrown around with the intent of hurting someones feelings.
