The No Homo Phobes Dot Com website demonstrates just how often people will use homophobic slurs on Twitter with a ticking tracker and a never-ending parade of the offending tweets below. The English purists may also get irked by the number of times people write your a fag -- albeit, I personally think that ignorance and homophobia go hand in hand.
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.
