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.

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.
