Today, my boyfriend told me that he is homophobic. This wouldn't be such a big deal, if my mother wasn't a lesbian. He doesn't know this yet, and I'm afraid to tell him. FML

I really don't understand why people are homophobic. It's like a gay guy being afraid of straight guys... just doesn't make sense.

Your mothers' sexual preferences are not of his business.

well this could get awkward....

lol, I'm loving the name #1. And I agree with 3... I thought guys liked lesbians... I don't think he'll take it too horribly.

That sucks, people can't control phobias. but maybe you can help him over come his phobia?

Homophobia, more often than not isn't a phobia in the sense of extreme fear. I'm sure there are cases, just like there's cases of people fearing their own voice, but they're rarely more than hatred. Think of the way oil is hydrophobic, while other chemicals are hydrphillic. It's more of a "disdain", to put it in more humanized terms, of homosexuality, than an actual fear.. A rejection, if you prefer.

haha...tell him quick

if u don't want him to worry tell him your cheating on him then tell him your mums a lesbian

#2, I'm just curious, is your profile picture of some semen on the floor? it looks like it on the app.

It looks kinda like a white tattoo to me? idk

44-I looked now I wish I hadn't......It's an extremely linty belly button. *gags*

Surprisingly not true my boyfriend thinks they are completely disgusting and takes the time to loudly display his feelings in public places....this is one of my many fml's lol

lucky!! none of my fmls gotten posted..

I'm straight but I refuse to date or socialize with anyone whom is anti gay.

I think he'll be ok with it. he is most likely against the idea of gay guys and probably not actually even phobic which would mean he's truly afraid of homos

All men like lesbians? Aw man, what else do you know about immense groups of individuals that are too large to be accurately generalised?!

Yeah it's completely nonsensical. It's like they think they're gonna catch "the gay" or something. I had a homophobic coworker once discover I'm Bi by looking through my texts w/out me knowing. He tried getting me fired on the grounds of sexual harassment, but he got the axe instead for invasion of privacy lmao.

He got what he deserved, 19.

Oh dang. I think you need to tell him, and if he can't can't take you and your family the way that you are, you shouldn't be with him.

If he shows no signs of willing to grow as a person and accept your mom, then DTMFA. You deserve better than that. As for most of you saying "all straight guys like lesbians"...straight guys typically like the girl/girl scenes they see in porn, which has little to do with real-life lesbians.

Yeah if he breaks up with you because your mom is lesbian, he's not worth it. It would've only led to later problems if you disagree with his homophobia now.
