i’ve been thinking a lot about the extent to which you can be friends with someone when your opinions/beliefs are very different from theirs. i remember this girl in my english class once saying that she had a friend who was very homophobic, but that she was still friends with her despite their differentiating beliefs because everyone is “entitled to their own opinion”

and i remember being so angry when she said this, because you can’t play the “entitled to your own opinion” card when it’s a destructive belief concerning something like basic human rights. the reason she could maintain a friendship with the homophobic girl is because she’s straight and the homophobic girl’s hurtful opinion doesn’t oppress or affect the girl in my english class in any way. and looking past a harmful belief simply because it doesn’t apply to you is repulsive to me

and i know that it definitely limits the friendships i have, but i could never consider someone my friend if they believed something so hurtful and damaging and amoral. and people who play the “entitled to your own opinion” card with something like homophobia are trash. that sounds harsh but it’s true. denying someone basic human rights and dehumanizing them because of something they can’t help is not an “opinion”; it’s disgusting and destructive. and people who can look past that because it doesn’t affect them are just as bad, if not worse, because it means that they’re recognizing the problem but actively choosing to ignore it and do nothing about it even though they know it’s wrong
