Sorry it took so long to respond, I had to take a call.
But I can’t believe I already got my first message ever like this.
First off, I agree with you: homosexuals have it worse than heterosexuals in this world. This is because of oppression and gay rights and etc.
Secondly, how did I even offend anyone? I claim that heterosexuals are people as well, which is 100% true. They are biology creatures who breath oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide and live and have a brain and their mentality includes responses and emotions. Just because you are a part of an oppressed group does not entitle you to being an asshole to anyone of your choice, regardless of race, gender, sex, sexuality, etc. Not everyone who is LGTB+ is bullied in their life (although it’s possible) and not every straight/cis person is a bully (although it’s possible). But possibility is not the same thing as probability.
Lastly, I fail to see anyone “playing the victim”. All I saw was a post that said “oh no… i offended a heterosexual” which i interpreted (most likely correctly) as “i said something that hurt someone- but it’s okay because they’re heterosexual”. Heterosexuality is not defined as “person devoid of feeling or ability to be hurt”. A heterosexual is someone who has sexual attraction for the opposite sex.
For all we know, OP (meaning “original poster” bc idk how common this term is on tumblr) could have walked up to some heterosexual person they know from school and say “you’re so stupid” and the person (who happens to be heterosexual) was hurt. This is a valid reason to be offended. OP could have also walked up and said “ew you’re straight? you and your sexuality are scum to me”, which is ALSO a very valid reason for the person to be offended.
Either way, the person could have said that what OP said is offensive. Calling someone out is not “playing the victim”, and expressing your feelings of hurt or discomfort doesn’t qualify for that ridiculous phrase either.
No, heterosexuals are not victims to society, but any individual can damn well be a victim to a hurtful phrase or bully.
