Talk:Gay bashing

Return to "Gay bashing" page.

The term "gay bashing", in the real world, refers to physical violence against gay people, but this article is mostly about violence committed by gay people. I guess you can redefine terms as you see fit, but that doesn't make this site very "trustworthy," at least for people who live in the real world. FredJ (talk) 00:53, 23 September 2018 (EDT)

Wikipedia defines gay bashing as "Gay bashing and gay bullying is verbal or physical abuse against a person who is perceived by the aggressor to be gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, including persons who are actually heterosexual."
It is not Conservapedia's fault that most gay bashing is done by homosexuals.Conservative (talk) 03:50, 23 September 2018 (EDT)
Where did you find that statistic? (And isn't Wikipedia supposed to be unreliable?) FredJ (talk) 08:46, 23 September 2018 (EDT)
You presumably know that the internet is a big place, and one can find statements in support of just about any viewpoint, however outlandish or nonsensical-by-the-standards-of-normal-sensible-people they may be. If one spends huge amounts of time scouring the internet for wacky statements, one will find them.
"Seek, and ye shall find" -- Matthew 7:7. (Am I saying the internet is like God? No.)
There are a few people at Conservapedia who frequently do this, User:Conservative ("Cons") perhaps foremost among them. I still occasionally find treasure troves of this sort of thing, like this thing about someone named "cultofdusty", who posted some silly thing on youtube about how atheists own the internet. If a normal person came across such tripe they would simply move on, after promising themselves not to spend so much time clicking on asinine youtube videos.
On another topic, please be aware that posting {{fact}} tags at Conservapedia almost never ends well. Countering misinformation is not easy. Choose your battles carefully.
