One who fears or hates homosexuals, and usually bisexuals.
When they tell you why they think they have a good reason to hate them, they say something about the Bible, and say untrue shit about STD's, or try to say sexuality is a matter of choice, when everyone with a decent IQ knows that it isn't.
(Hey, you wanna prove me wrong, tell me how to make myself straight.)
It seems that most homophobes are rednecks who are members of the Ku Klux Klan.
Homophobia can be very closely compared with racism.

A person who wishes to oppress individuals based upon their sexual orientation.

Is taken to encompass closet-cases, though not all homophobes are. Some are uncomfortable with homosexuality, others are associated with the religious right. All claim to have good reasons for denying other human beings their rights, but are not actually able to justify it.
Homophobes tend to use the word "faggot" quite often to describe homosexual men.

A term that is used to describe a person, or persons that have a hatred of, or, less commonly, a fear of homosexuals, usually this fear or hatred tends to be irrational in nature.A Homophobe usually tends to be deeply religious by nature, and is as such because the Bible refutes against homosexuality.
My brother is what can be described as a homophobe.I am not very spiritual, but I do acknowledge the fact that the bible states that homosexuality is an abomination before God.

A homophobe is a person who is intolerant of homosexuals. Homophobe comes from the word homophobia, meaning either fear or hatred of homosexuals. The issue of the word is a matter of its different usage by people with different ideologies, and actual meaning of the word is misunderstod frequently by both liberals and conservatives. On the right, reactionaries may construe the word to be insulting their moral character. Such staunch conservatives may themselves be homophobic or refuse to accept homosexuality, though such prejudices may be unfounded, used as a general derogatory term towards the right, especially the Christian right. In comparison, on the left, the tendency is to assume it means anyone who disapproves of a homosexual lifestyle. But, a practicing Christian might not approve of homosexuality or endorse it without expressing a fear or hatred of homosexuals, and in fact, this interpretation is the official stand many churches take on the issue.
The Roman Catholic Church is not run by homophobes. The Westboro Baptist Church, however, is.
