Being called a homophobe is the 21st century equivalent of being labeled a heretic in the Middle Ages.
You can tell it was invented by some ignoramus. It either means man-fear or same-fear. It certainly doesn’t mean fear of homosexuals which would be homosexualiphobia or homosexualiphobic.
A phobia is an irrational fear and abnormal.
Actually, the left is in danger of cheapening that word to the point where it has no effective meaning, the same way they have done with "racist" and "nazi." People on this website are begininng to do the same with "RINO."
It’s even worse than being a heretic. It’s tantamount to cannibalizing babies alive.
