I am really ashamed asking this, but as a girl growing up boy-girl relationships have always been a no-no. I don't even talk much to guys, unless necessary. Upon encountering romance - TV, movies, books, - I always rolled my eyes because I hated romance, seemed too stupid, dumb to me.

Then I read a book where two guys feel you know in love and I thought it was the first time I did not want to continue to see what happened - I though the mm couple was cute. Now I always think they are cute? I am a girl so naturally I dislike lesbians and stuff, but ....ugh.

I wish I could be disgusted by them but I am addicted, not wholly, to gay books [Only YA stuff, not any uter haram erotic stuff, ew] . I've vowed never again to seek out a gay book but if I see two gay guys, I still think Awww. Please help!

  • What is YA stuff. I need to take a look at them before writing a answer. Commented Mar 5, 2017 at 8:41
  • This is indeed a remarkable question. I was thinking about this question quite a lot. Hope you get a good answer.

  • Would this fall under "reviling the religion"?

    Does this answer your question? Does Islam tell us to hate what is Haraam?

I wouldn't suggest befriending homosexuals but you are still expected to treat them kindly as fellow humans. Regardless of sins committed, a human is still a human and should be treated with fairness and honesty in Islam.
