No Homo?.

I found a link to this site whilst tumbling on Tumblr and found it extremely interesting. NoHomophobes.com documents Tweets that carry some of the most common, offensive, homophobic  language. Here, you can select to view different tallies organized by “Today,” “Last Week,” and “All Time” (pictured above). The Tweets that use the listed terms (“Faggot,” “So Gay,” “No Homo,” “Dyke”) also filter in right below the visual graphs in real time.

The point of this site is to point out all Tweets that use this homophobic language, even if it’s not directly uses to “mock” homosexuals. I know that language like this has been common and are horrifically in trend, but I was still shocked to see that “Faggot” is literally used in at least one tweet per second!

Now, keep in mind that this is ONLY Twitter and that the number would be incredibly higher if it took other social media sites into account.
