Good accept people and their sexuality. Those who condemn people on what they are into are the evil ones in this world.

Not all christians are bad. If some christians Were more accepting of someones sexuality we would have less anti homophobes.

Homophobia is definitely real. I hear it everyday at work. So is racism. It's amazing what you'll hear when you're a straight married white guy working with a bunch of straight married white guys. Most of em are, well simply put, pigs.

Homophobia is a made up word that is used improperly all the time. Phobia is a fear of something, the people who do not agree with gay lifestyle are NOT afraid of gay people, they simply disagree with what they do, so I would even say hate them, but they are NOT afraid of them, therefore it is not a Phobia. They are also NOT ignorant which gay people like to call them, Ignorance is a lack of knowledge on a subject, and it is not that they lack knowledge, again they do NOT AGREE with you, that is not ignorance. So Please all you LGBT folks, try to use proper English from now on, K?

We really have more important things to worry about than impressing you with our grammar skills, now don't we? I don't care what you call it, it's wrong, and history will show it as such! Bigotry will never win, no matter the belief or reasoning behind it.

Websters defines homophobia as the irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals.

So yes, it's a real word, try to learn proper English, K?

Is your organization sponsoring the HIV screening at the university? You should be involved as the very behavior you are advocating is chiefly responsible for the epidemic, and its drain of resources away from research for other diseases.

Anyone with a high school education should have learned in a basic science class that BODY FLUID TRANSMISSION is responsible for spreading STD's, including HIV. IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT GENDER YOU ARE. So are you homophobic or just stupid?

Hey Rump ranger Webster defines Phobia as ": an exaggerated usually inexplicable and illogical fear of a particular object, class of objects, or situation " We are nor afraid of you, we are grossed out by you.
