Back when Trump started his campaign I began noticing a lot of “social justice warriors” shouting about all these apparent phobias that are plaguing our society today. To this day I still don’t know what some of them even mean and I really have no desire to find out. I would like to focus on two that I do know however and feel I actually am suffering from these phobias. One is homophobia and the other is transphobia. Before I go any further I want to make a few things clear. When it comes to homosexuals I feel that they are born that way and there is nothing they can do about it. In regards to transgenders I think that they have a mental illness and 90% of them don’t choose to be that way. I feel they should have the same rights as every American citizen and I would never wish them harm. I would also never be unkind to them if they were in my presence. So let’s get to the phobia part. Last week I was walking to my truck and a kid in probably his mid twenties comes walking by. He was probably 6’4/6’5 and went close to 250. Gangly type of kid wearing men’s gym type clothing and curly hair. He had on women’s earrings that almost dangled down to his shoulders and had on makeup. He reminded me of a creepy clown. In fact most of them do. When I was 8 or 9 my dad let me stay up one night and watch the movie Poltergeist . Do you guys remember the scene of the toy clown coming to life and dragging the son under the bed ? Ever since then I have had a phobia of clowns. Because of this I can’t but be creeped out by transgenders because every time I see one I think of a creepy clown. There is absolutely no way I can sit next to one and feel comfortable and short of getting hypnotized I don’t think that will ever change. On to homosexuals. I don’t care what people do in the privacy of their own homes I just don’t want to hear about it or see it be it two men or even a man and woman. Watching people in public being overly affectionate with one another grosses me out. It’s bad enough if it’s two of the opposite sex but two of the same sex (men) would make me want to either vomit or pass out. I can’t help feeling this way. It’s kind of like how someone can’t take nails on a chalkboard or having a food add version that makes them sick to their stomach. Even with not seeing displays of affection I still struggle with simply knowing. If I told someone I like to eat a dog crap sandwich once a week they would totally be grossed out knowing that and I wouldn’t blame them. To me two men being together isn’t much different but in our society it shouldn’t be and I shouldn’t feel that way. Well I can’t help it. I just can’t completely shut these thoughts and feelings out of mind. Over flamboyance in men also bothers me a great deal. Mainly because I never really had the patience for people who make a spectacle of themselves. To me it’s very narcissistic and abnormal behavior that I don’t have the time of day for. It’s not genuine it’s a act. So what am I to do ? In this day and age more attention is being given to these lifestyles than ever before and I have a few of the phobias everyone is shouting about. Am I a bad persons ? Do I deserve some sympathy for having to function in a society where my phobias are becoming more prevalent ?
