I'm sure many will recognize the song from the hit Broaday musical 'Avenue Q' called 'Everyone's A Little Bit Racist' (see it here). This song got me thinking about an incident that happened the other day when I was talking to my good friend and mentor. Something came up sort of gay related in the conversation, and I noticed a little 'wince' in his expression - a little glimmer of uncomfortablness. It wasn't anything bad or offensive, either, and I think that's what made me notice it. I realized that even though we're great friends and he loves and accepts me just like I am - even though he's straight - there's a still a little bit of homophobia just below the surface. I think this is true for a lot of straight people - maybe most of them. Its just something I think straight folks have a hard time relating to. What do you think?
Is 'Everyone A Little Homphobic' when you get right down to it??
