Hop Against Homophobia
An abbreviated list of actual things that have been said to Mj and/or Piper:
"Ew. Girls together freak me out."
"Don't you think you're being greedy?"
"You're bi? That's hot. Do you and your girlfriend do threesomes?"
"Sweeet. Bi chicks are sluts."
"You'll just cheat on me with a girl/guy."
"Just admit you're a lesbian."
"You have to be straight. You look too girly."
"There's no such thing as bisexuality."
"Get off the fence."
"You're just doing it to get attention."
"Can't you just be straight? It's easier."
"That should be illegal."
"Do you really.... well, you know, with girls? Ew, I could never do that."
"I can't believe you've touched penises."
"No man will want you if you sleep with a woman."
"Gay guys are hot but girls...that's kind of gross."
Here's what we have to say. Homophobia of ANY type is bullshit.
(And gross douchey comments aren't much better)
Respect love of all sorts. In the end, it's pretty much all we have.
In celebration of what we hope will be a step towards ending homophobia Piper and MJ are giving away an e-copy of any of our combined titles (Moonlight Becomes You, The Luckiest, One Small Thing). The other ones are free anyway:)
