You really don't think I'm going to click on your link, do you?? Dumb A$$. A whole complete package huh? But each package is complete with instructions to engage in sexual perversion. Which in turn, make them pretty much, all the same.
Except we don't think about it night and day like you do. What's the matter? Can't get laid?

Nothing is as disgusting as the beast that mated with dogs, squatted down in an alley and crapped you out on a garbage pail lid and then let you run wild with coyotes till you turned into the hater you are. I HOPE she was neutered before reproducing anymore like you.

No. Here is the definition of the word from Dictionary.com
homophobia (h&#601;&#650;m&#6 01;&#650;&#712;f&# 601;&#650;b&#618;& #601;)— n
intense hatred or fear of homosexuals or homosexuality
[C20: from homo ( sexual )+-phobia ]
'homophobe— n
homo'phobic— adj
So, in fact, the rest of your post proves the point.
That's just the colloquial definition, not the meaning it was (badly) coined to convey, and which the Social Sciences have confirmed. The colloquial definition places too much focus on a couple of the symptoms.

Let's say that Luke's points above, 1-5, at least, are true (I'll leave 6 for a moment). Ok? What does that have to do with anyone but people willing to have anal sex? There's no doubt that anal sex, whether with a man or a woman, is riskier than other types... and riding a motorcycle is riskier than driving a car. Two (or more) consenting adults having risky sex is their own business, and their choice, just as the super-macho motorcyclists are imbeciles for risking their lives on their bikes.
As for 6, I'd like to see the actual paper so that I know whether the author is controlling for pre-adult homosexuals, as only one possible confounder. Should we condemn 15-17 year-old hetero boys from having sex with available girls or older women? If not, we can't condemn homosexual boys from having sex with other boys or older men. Horny is horny.
Try asking him about the discussion you and I shared on another thread about the abstinece programs that teach teens anal sex is not sex. Unless it's two boys.

Of course all the fundies will start screaming when they read this.
I was just about to post the same thing when I first saw this story.

I do laugh at how you guys cease on a single instance for your purposes, but deny a single instance has any meaning...
did you even hear about the gays denying straights admission to their softball club?

What do you make of that?

I bet its a limited instance, right?
