    Yes. The only reason to object to homosexuality is because you were brought up that way in church. If you can somehow get past all that bigotry and nonsense you will see we are no different than anyone else.

      I disagree and there is nothing wrong with going to church. People like you are biasing Christians. Yes, some so called Christians go TOO hard on their children if they figure out that their kids are bisexual or gay, but real Christians show understanding but still don't agree with homosexuality.

    If you don't support homosexuality, it doesn't make you a homophobe, but if you cuss the life out of them saying that they're stupid f.a.g.g.o.t.s, then yes, thats homophobic because that's expressing hatred towards them.

    You don't have to agree with homosexuality. 

    Just like if you don't want cats or kids does that make you felinophobic or pedophobic? No.

      So if someone disagrees with pets then that means they automatically hate animals? You are overkilling the word homophobic along with 1,000's of other people.

    No, as someone who's in the medical field phobia/phobic means literal fear that affects the body (fainting, hyper ventilation etc). NO ONE is doing that when they see typical gays and cross dressing gays. They think that they're entitled to acceptance from everyone when people are free to be against their life style.

  • Being phobic can mean fear OR irrational behavior. Hating someone over something they have no control over, and that doesn't effect your life at all, is irrational and therefore phobic. So, yes, IMO you are homophobic.

    No, objecting to a practice does not make you a homophobe.

    "phobe" means to fear. I don't believe that someone against homosexuality fears it, they simply think it is wrong. So by definition, no, they are not homophobes.

    EDIT:  @c0cksucking tyler:  As you clearly cannot understand basic English, there's no point in wasting time on you.  And FYI - I don't use sock accounts moron. You're just mad that people agree with me and not you.  

    No.  A phobia requires you to be irrationally in fear of something.  

    Opposing something is not a fear of it, it's a just disagreeing with it.
