Is challenging a guy's manhood the same as being homophobic?

    For example, If a guy says to another guy, "You're such a girl" ... Or "You're being such a pussy about this" is this automatically homophobic?

    How about if he says, "I didn't like that movie, probably because I have testicles"?

    No! The guy is not being homophobic; instead, he's telling that the other guy is weak.

    May be sexist but again tone, situation and context are always a big part in how things mean.

    Sharpton saidYes, if someone is a misogynist then 9/10, they are homophobic.


    That's very untrue. I know many out gay men (who love homos) who are very misogynistic. In fact, I see it more among gay men than straight men.

    I think the guy is trying to prove his OWN manhood.

    Homophobia and sexism have the same roots : patriarchy

    Anyone who would automatically view those statements as homophobic is homophobic for automatically viewing those statements as homophobic.

    I don't think so
    or rather hope not, as I do it all the time.

    I had the misfortune of actually watching the last "Bachelorette--what a bunch of pussies.
