  •  Yep. He doesn't accept or even recognize that (0+ / 0-)

    heterosexuality is a sexual orientation. Actually, he may not even accept the concept of sexual orientation; homophobes will often adopt an attitude that's close to being a parody of strict Skinnerian anti-mentalism and argue that attractions and desires and hopes and aspirations are meaningless concepts; only behavior counts, and only acts involving the genitals qualify as "behavior" (with the exception of kissing and hand-holding, the latter of which, particularly when two women are involved, is referred to as "fondling"). "Speech acts" are dealt with using the logical fallacy of special pleading: a boy who says a girl is "hot" isn't engaging in behavior, but a boy who says another boy is "hot" is.
