No Homophobes on Twitter


Diese Website der University of Alberta, macht nichts anderes  als in Echtzeit vier homophobe Schlagwörter zu zählen, die auf Twitter gezwitschert werden. Ist verdammt traurig, wenn man das so sieht.

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.
