"Homophobe" is a neologism used by gays and gay rights activists to describe anybody who does not like homosexuality. It is a stupid and poorly-conceived term for several reasons:

1. It implies that the person that it is applied to is afraid of homosexuals. Of course, hardly anyone actually is.

2. It shows a stunning amount of ignorance on the person who invented it. Literally translated, it means "fear of the same"(it can also mean "fear of humans" when interpreted as a bastard mix of Latin and Greek. By this definition, nearly all wild animals are homophobic).

3. It is extremely overused by people who don't have a clue about what they're talking about(e.g. "The Bible is homophobic because it says that gays should be burned!").

4. It has needlessly negative connotations(most likely stemming from the -phobe suffix). If somebody(e.g. me) does not think that homosexuality is a good thing, how is that wrong?

Needless to say, it is a pointless - yet overused - political buzzword that has no basis in reality, and usage should be avoided.

1.
Someone who repeatedly whines that homosexuals endanger family values and the sanctity of marriage, until outed as a closet case, desperately afraid of the gay person looking back in the mirror.

Someone who calls homosexuality a "lifestyle choice" but their own biology disagrees. Think about it: did you CHOOSE to be straight? As a teenager did you sit down one day and decide whether to be attracted to boys or girls?
It isn't surprising that stories about homophobes (like Bob Allen, Roy Ashburn, Bruce Barclay, Larry Craig, John Curtin, Mark Foley, Matthew Glavin, Ted Haggard, Phillip Hinkle, Glenn Murphy, Brent Parker, George Rekers, Ed Schrock, etc) often end with "was caught behind the restroom with a cock in his mouth".

Noun,

Offensive Slur.

1. Non-medical, non-scientific pejorative term used to demean and ridicule anyone who disagrees with or disapproves of aberrant, deviant, or unnatural pseudo sexual behavior, conduct or practices, i.e., aberrosexualism, bisexualism, homosexualism, lesbianism, sadomasochism, zoophilism, etc.

2. (Sexism) Offensive, pejorative term used to degrade and ridicule anyone who agrees with the universal rejection of aberrant, deviant or unnatural pseudo sexual behavior or practices.

3. (Religion) Disparaging, pejorative term used to attack and stigmatize people who believe in the well-settled Christian and/or Catholic teachings on human sexuality, marriage, and the family.

4. (Politics) Discriminatory and politicized pejorative term used by bigots to promote hate and intolerance, deny basic human rights, as well as incite and justify violence against everyone who disagrees with the extremist Aberrosexualist (aka Homosexualist) ideology.

''Homophobes'' have never been listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). Homosexuals, however, are considered by many doctors and scientists as suffering from real psycho-sexual disorders requiring treatment and/or therapy. The DSM recognized that homosexuals suffer from psycho-sexual disorders until 1973 when homosexualism was arbitrarily censored from the DSM due to the irrational fears and coercive pressures of Aberrosexualist groups, and not due to any clinical studies or medical research.
1. A “homophobe” is not someone who fears or dislikes aberrosexuals, but rather anyone Aberrosexualists fear or dislike.

2. Although the “homophobe” slur has a clinical ring to it, medically or scientifically there is simply no such condition.

3. Aberrosexualists disparagingly call a “homophobe” everyone who exercises their basic right to disagree with aberrosexualist ideology.

4. The only ones who use the “homophobe” slur are bigots, idiots, and ignoramuses.

5.
This should mean someone who's afraid of sameness, or afraid of humans. Instead, it means someone who hates homosexuals (but may or may not actually be afraid of them).
"Why were they gay-bashing?"

"But if they're scared of gays, why didn't they run screaming at the sight of them?"
"I didn't come up with the term!"
