Homophobia--What Does It Really Mean?
October 21, 2007 6:13am CST
I hear the word "homophobia" a lot in the media, and it makes me wonder about the definition of the word. In the pure sense, a "homophobe" would be someone with an amplified or morbid fear of homosexuals. Here is my question--and I'm asking people to stay on point--can a person truly believe that homosexuality is not natural and NOT be a homophobe. Does the term "homophobia" refer to all people who do not accept gay or lesbian as natural?
