No Homophobes

Eine Website der University of Alberta, die nichts anderes tut, als in Echtzeit vier homophobe Schlagwörter zu zählen, die auf Twitter rausgehen. Und da kommt so einiges am Tag.

This website is designed as a social mirror to show the prevalence of casual homophobia in our society. Words and phrases like “faggot,” “dyke,” “no homo,” and “so gay” are used casually in everyday language, despite promoting the continued alienation, isolation and — in some tragic cases — suicide of sexual and gender minority (LGBTQ) youth.

We no longer tolerate racist language, we’re getting better at dealing with sexist language, but sadly we’re still not actively addressing homophobic and transphobic language in our society.
