A person who has an irrational fear and hatred of people with homosexual tendencies. Usually found in societies intolerant of human sexuality, especially those of the highly intolerant Abrahamic ones (christianity, Judaism, Islam), and people with repressed homosexual tendencies.

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!!!

1. Someone who's afraid of eating hotdogs because it reminds them of penises.
2. That friend everyone has that is always saying something is 'gay' as their way of saying something is bad. Usually accompanied by accusing people they know of being gay when they know better, most likely as an attempt to cover up their own gayness, when everyone wishes they'd just come out of the closet already and get it over with.
3. Newcomers to county jail or state/federal prison. Also potentially your straight friends after you get out of jail and/or prison.
4. People who seem to take their religion way out of context so they can use it to promote hate and intolerance; found a lot in the southern united states but isn't limited to that region.
1. "Dude that hot dog is SO over the bun. I'm not eating that. I'll look gay." "You're such a homophobe. Just eat the damn hotdog." "No! I bet you want me to put mayonaisse on it, too, don't you?" "What does that have to do with anything?"
2. "That's a gay game. You're gay for even playing it. It's gay beyond belief." "It's okay, Kevin. You can come out of the closet. We're still your friends." "Gays!" "Homophobe."
3. "Holy shit dude, I'm not trying to sound like a homophobe but I really think I'm going to need some soap on a rope. I saw the way those guys were eyeing me in the shower." or "Dude, my homie just got out of prison. I wonder if he took it in the ass while he was in there?" "Homophobes!"
4. Man 1: "Hey, whatever happened to Matthew, Chapter 7, verse 1, 'thou shalt not judge...'?" Man 2: "Fuck that, man, God hates fags, it's in the Bible!" Man 1: "There's a lot of other stuff in the Bible too, maybe if you knew how to read you'd know that." Man 2: "You're a faggot!" Man 1: "You're a homophobe." Man 2: "Queer!" Man 1: "Have a nice life."
