It's the irrational fear that anything that sounds like it is really gay, actually is really gay, even if it isn't and really gay is really bad, really:

Any questions?

We liked learning about homophones @ school. The boys always said that it was a gay chat line.

Sounds like one, anyway.

America is filled with homophonophobes, it just took til now to expose how really silly the fear is. For years we've been listening to them freak out the moment anything begins sounding "gay" to them, now we know just how irrational it can get for them. I wonder if this dude has to cross out the word homogenized before he can pick up a carton of milk at the store.
