this is the closest interpertation that I have heard yet from homosexuals and advocates. The irrational fear is good, however homosexulaity is incorrect, that root word refers to either members of teh same gender or the species, that is why it is so funny to hear people use words they don't even know the meaning of.

homophobia (&#716;h&#601;&#65 0;m&#601;&#650;&#7 12;f&#601;&#650;b& #618;&#601;)
