asians still don't feel comfortable in their own skin when being queers, i have a family that's very homophobic, it's just their mindset and they are too afraid to change things, or could it be their fucking stupid?

... or is it the white rice diet? white rice never gives much to the brain anyway, just adds too many calories and bloats you up

It's that difficult situation where most are afraid to come out, yet visibility is the biggest influence on promoting tolerance. It has been proven that attitudes change when you know someone personally who is LGBT. Not 100% of the time, but the great majority do.
Keep pushing forward, China.

Just leave them to it. Time takes time. There are more important things to worry about.
