When I'm talking about homophobia, I'm not talking about gay bashing. I mean the fear, hate or dislike of homosexuality that many people, worldwide, have.<quoted text>
You are the one that compared the two RR.
Here is the definition of phobia...
a persistent, irrational fear of a specific object, activity, or situation that leads to a compelling desire to avoid it.
You do realize that hatred and phobias are two different things though can and often share similar traits.
Yes people have the right to choose to hate.
People can choose not to be treated for smallpox...not a good thing however for society.
People can also choose to remain homophobic...also not a good thing or society.
RR...you made a statement...you compared homophobia to a disease...you treat on with a vaccine...why not the other?
BTW People are treated for their phobias...mega bucks are spent trying to cure them.
Hope that clears it up.
