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.
Shirley Phelps-Roper is a homophobe, and one of the most hated people on the planed.

n. 1. The word literally means "fear of sameness".
2. A word misused by people who think that, if you disagree with homosexuality you must be afraid of homosexuals. This word is also used commonly amongst gays that wish to desensitize the public with a word that they think means that people misunderstand them.
I understand homosexuality perfectly, and yet I am still frequently named a "homophobe". However, a psychiatrist would disagree that I have the condition known as homophobia.

homo= human
phobia= fear

Fear of humans, fear of homosexuals. I don't fear them at all. My school's full of them. It's more like I dislike them. Being gay is like incest. You're not supposed to have intercourse with your own! You just use the word homophobe to make people with different opinions sound ignorant. Get over it.
Who came up with the usage of this word? Next thing you know, we'll be marrying Joe to his cousin Peggy...

A word for people who hate homosexuals. Like anti-semitism, this word is illogical because there should, by this logic, be a word to define anybody who hates anything, such as, say, Catholics. But there isn't because it's only a word to throw at people and make them seem ignorant for disagreeing with something they see as wrong, no matter how reasonable their purpose is. Basically, this is an unneeded word.
"You're mad at me for not paying my bills? You're just a homophobe!"

A safe way to demonize anyone criticizing the homosexual lifestyle.

Most "homophobes" actually don't hate gays/lesbians, they just hate the latter's lifestyle and their overt attempts at pushing it through the media, and most recently, through the courts.
-"Homophobe": did you know that domestic violence among gay/lesbian couples is more frequent than among heterosexual ones???
-Gay rights supporter: YOU HOMOPHOBE!!!
