Am I the only one...?

Who hates the word homophobic? It is not a phobia. Nobody is SCARED of gays. It disgusts me that people use that word, really it does. You are not homophobic you are a bigot. I think homophobic makes them think that it doesn't sound bad. Well I don't care how it sounds, let's call it what it is! HATE!

  • I think that the word implies some sort of trait of gays in themselves. A lot of time people who ardently go against it find themselves identifying with them.

  • I agree but it typically isn't those of us who disagree with the homosexual lifestyle that call ourselves 'homophobes' that would be those who do agree with the lifestyle calling us such.I am not scared of homosexuals you're right in that assumption.However,wrong in stating that I hate homosexuals.I do not hate them and realize they are also human beings.I just do not agree with the lifestyle.....the act.
