"Homophobia"? Really?
Renew America ^ | March 31, 2014 | Gina Miller

Posted on 03/31/2014 5:29:46 PM PDT by WXRGina

Listen to an audio version of this column

Words and their meanings matter (yes, I know: "Duh, Gina!"). The Left also knows this and has spent decades hijacking, redefining and creating words to cloak the truth of their anti-Christian, anti-American, freedom-robbing agenda. One of the areas in which we see this quite clearly is the radical homosexual movement. The big, little word they have hijacked is "gay." Gay has nothing to do with homosexuality. It means "cheerful," and I can think of few words that more poorly describe the militant homosexual activist than "cheerful." One only needs to be on the receiving end of their vicious vitriol to wonder how they ever got away with hijacking "gay."

Another of the homosexual movement's hijacked words is "gender." Do you remember the real meaning of gender? If you attended school back when they were still teaching proper English, with reading, writing, grammar, spelling and – shocker! – even cursive writing, you may recall that gender is a grammatical term. It is a term used to classify words into categories of masculine, feminine and neuter. So, in come the wizards of dark to latch on to the word "gender" and use it as a replacement for "sex," because they know that there are only two sexes, period. Yes, even accounting for rare birth defects in reproductive organs, people are either male or female.

"Gender" misused is a very malleable word, as we now see! It can be used to deny reality till the cows come home. Are you a man with a mental disorder who believes he's a "woman" "trapped" in a man's body? Boom! You now have a "gender identity" that just happens to differ from your sex. What could be easier? With the hijacking of gender, these people can now create a plethora of genders limited only by their warped imaginations. They have buried the true meaning of the grammatical term gender under a mountain of deception and bogus psychobabble.

Another deception is the made-up word "homophobia," which is a prized tool of the radical Left, a bludgeon designed to silence critics of the militant homosexual movement. A phobia is a persistent, irrational fear. It implies mental instability. After all, if your fear is not rational, then there's something wrong in your thinking, and you are needlessly fearing whatever it is you irrationally fear.

I do not fear homosexuals, irrationally or otherwise. Anyone who speaks unequivocally of the immoral, unnatural and very unhealthy reality of homosexual behavior is invariably maligned as being "homophobic." Superficially it doesn't even make sense, but when you look a little deeper, it should occur to any thinking man that those of us who speak boldly against this diabolical movement are in reality the opposite of "homophobic." If I am unafraid to call a spade a spade, then how can I be accused of being afraid of the spade? It's nonsense, but homosexual activists don't let sense impede their wrong-headed assertions and twisted agenda.

While I do not concede the faulty premise of the sham term "homophobia," I can tell you that if there is anything close to "homophobia" out there, it is found in people who bow in subservience to the perverse demands of the homosexual movement. It is the people who run corporations who fear lawsuits by these activists, and who cast aside the rights and concerns of their employees to accommodate the small percentage of deviants who insist on imposing their degenerate bedroom habits on their coworkers and workplaces.

If "homophobia" were a real thing, it would describe the behavior of politicians and managers and leaders of companies, schools, churches and institutions who abandon their moral convictions and compromise their principles in obeisance to what they inherently know is wrong. Why do they do this? Their "homophobia" (which, in truth, is just cowardice) directs them, because it is out of fear of media attacks, lawsuits, loss of employment, even fear of the disapproval of others, that they step aboard the hijacked-rainbow express. But using the term "homophobia" to describe what is simply cowardice isn't right, because the fact is that "homophobia" is a phony construct of the radical Left. It is a word weapon with a false meaning.

We have allowed the Left to abuse and distort our language for so long that we may not be able to gain control of the national dialogue. We are also at a disadvantage in that the powers of the air – the media, entertainment, Hollywood, and the rest – are controlled by leftists, so naturally they determine the "memes" and the terms. Neither does it help our cause that the younger generations are being dumbed-down to the point that many of them leave school unable to write a coherent paragraph, much less have a strong grasp on the meaning of words and why it matters. But, that's just the way the anti-American, anti-freedom, Godless Left likes it. Dumb people are as malleable as the "new" term "gender," and they can easily be made to proudly and stupidly embrace their chains by the powerful, evil tyrants who have a very good grasp on the English language.

A Phobia is an unfounded fear.

I have no unfounded fear of homosexuals.

I have no unfounded fear of their militant urges. either.

I do fear the bastardization of terminology however.... a fear that could in no way be described as unfounded .

This is pretty much exactly what I have been saying for years. No one is afraid of homosexuals. We are merely disgusted by them.

Sounds like the NYT bestseller right behind BipolarBobs "The psyche behind Americas liberal left and why it's so destructive".

I don’t fear homos either. They’re just biological freaks. What’s to fear? I don’t fear freaks.

How about “AIDsPhobia”, or “HIVPhobia”?

The impression I get is that liberals and gay activists are pissed off all the time. Just an observation. Getting nationwide homosexual marriage will not be enough. It would just move the goalposts, to set up more and more demands. And the cycle repeats, as the liberals will be pissed off that the next set of demands are not being met, because society is so homophobic, etc.

It all gets tiresome after a while.

Actually, when you look at the root of the words, you see that it is even more of a made-up word. As you note, phobia mean fear, especially irrational fear. But the correct meaning of “homo” is either “man”, as in homo sapiens, or “same”, as in homogeneous. So their word is either “fear of man” or “fear of sameness”. I don't fear man, nor do I fear sameness, so no matter what I may feel about homosexuals, homophobia is totally irrelevant as a descriptor.

I do not like the term “Homophobia” I work with a homosexual man. I am not afraid of him. My dislike of homosexuals has nothing to do with irrational fear. In fact I understand what they do quite well.

I dislike his lifestyle based upon assumptions that are dependable rationally, religiously and biologically. His morality is repellant and I do not condone it. We get along fine because I figure he has enough trouble with God that he doesn’t need any from me.

That said; he knows to never “flirt” with me and that if he does I will smack a sexual harassment complaint against him faster than he can change his skirt (Yes he will occasionally wear a skirt)

What they're trying to create is a web of secret, behind-the-scenes office-political relationships that will allow them to administer beatdowns to resistant, "non-reconciling" </cant and homolobby b.s.> heterosexual Americans.

By that I mean, someone tells you that you're a bigot because you're not down with homoagenda items X, Y, or Z. You tell them to eff off. Then your boss calls you in and fires you. Pretty soon people are self-censoring, and the guy who pulled the stunt is preening for his homopals and bragging about taking away your living.

The professional-negro network/lobby/cartel did the same thing to Paula Deen. It's a beatdown, economic terrorism in drag at the micro scale.

Some folks have been calling it a punishment of God.

In a broad sense, it is. I still do not believe, however, that it’s a curse out of the blue like the biblical leprosy. Rather it’s what you get when sinful persons get next to no guidance because the guides are blind themselves. When even Christendom has dropped the ball of sexual purity, figuring that God won’t really care whether anything goes, then God shows us that oh yes, He does care.

As the admittedly non biblical proverb goes, sometimes we do not miss the water until the well runs dry.

This isn’t just some nuisance. It’s bullies. Lust fills hearts with the devil’s own power. It’s a picture of how to go to hell. A little titillation, huge amounts of misery, and you’re stuck. The devil has employed you against yourself.

Of COURSE we should care for such people. Not even this kind of sinning is unrecoverable. The Cross is all-sufficient and never let anyone persuade you otherwise. But the way we should care for them is by daring to tell them that no, God does have a better way! And being willing to weather the opprobrium which we will get from the world, but not from heaven.

They’re confusing homophobia with gay bashing. I have no innate fear of homosexuals, although I thoroughly reject and condemn their errant and anti biological BEHAVIOR.

I observe that we do “fear” spiritual Typhoid Marys.

Choosing the fear of the Lord is the answer. And that is to hate all evil. We should much, much sooner snatch these offenders from this rightly hated evil, but if they absolutely insist on being identified with their evil, we should then take them at their word.

I don’t think America will necessarily take this lying down forever. It’s people who are stubborn about going to hell, not God who is stubborn about being unforgiving. But recovery will come in the form of recovering a larger good relationship with the Lord.

Homo bashing is either two weirdos beating each other up or them making a pass on the wrong person and getting a violent response.

Male/females fights can get pretty nasty so imagine two women or two men in a cat fight.

The author has a great point. Let's start using homophobia correctly - to refer to those who are afraid of homosexuals, and afraid to deny their demands, no matter how ridiculous.
