A contrived word coined by the politically correct and gays. Like most political correctness, including the fallacy of "diversity," it is intended to pigeonhole people into thought and behavior that fits the ridiculous PC agenda. In this instance, the word is used to turn the tables on straight people, attempting to make them feel guilty and inadequate for being repulsed by the fundamentally unnatural concept of men attempting to mate with each other.
Steve was pretty grossed out by the very idea of two men balling each other, and he found he didn't much care to consort with flagrantly gay people -- they just weren't his cup of tea. There must be something wrong with Steve! He has homophobia!

A male's insecurity about his heterosexuality, and projection of the hatred he feels of his own homosexuality onto other people.
Wow Chuck really seems to put down gay people alot, his homophobia is probably just hiding the fact that he's gay

Incorrect term in many forms. Though the term "homophobia" truly means "afraid of everything that is the same," it has been adopted as "afraid of homosexuals." A big problem is when someone hates gays but isn't afraid of them, they'll be called "homophobic," which couldn't be because it isn't fear...it's hate. Hate would be called "anti-gay" or "anti-homosexual." The term also tends to be misused often when someone disapproves of a gay PERSON, but not gays in general, yet some dumbass will still accuse them of homophobia. Though hate and fear of gays does truly exist, this term is not always used correctly.
Person 1: "I don't like Rosie O'Donnell. She's always a bitch to different people and tries to look like a victim when they're frustrated with her."
Person 2: "You hate Rosie? You're such a homophobic!"
Person 1: "What are you talking about? I don't have homophobia...I just don't like Rosie. I don't mind gays, and definitely don't fear them."
Person 2: "You do too, you homophobe! You disapprove of Rosie! It's solid proof!"

A word developed for the purpose of deflecting people's dislike and/or disapproval of homosexual behavior and/or practice. It is merely an attempt to overshadow any rational and respectable arguments against homosexuality.
Man A: I disapprove of homosexuality because I truly believe it's nothing short of lust mingled with anxiousness and confusion. I believe homosexuals have a strong sexual desire that they have trouble containing and expressing. When this desire is paired with anxiousness, it is expressed in unnatural manners. Such as same-gender sex.

Man B: I agree, but I also believe homosexuality can be a psychological reaction. Such as women suppressing their natural desire for men as a response to an abusive relationship. Or men suppressing their natural desire for women as a response to an emasculating trauma.

Man C: Whatever, you dudes are just homophobes.

Man A & B: Why?

Man C: Just, whatever. You have homophobia. That's why.

It's not our job to educate faggots, yes a faggot is NOT a homosexual, but someone who is anti-gay. So when phobes say "FaGz sHoUld DiE" they obviously even hate themselves! Anyway everyone should know by now that there is nothing wrong with homosexuality. If you continue ruining other people's lives, you're truly pathetic I mean how long will it take until you realize YOU are thee problem? For example phobes complain that gay people "flaunt" their "lifestyle" and "want special rights". Hello idiots, you brought gay parades / pride to yourself because if there wasn't homophobia, there would be no need for this! Homosexuality isn't going to vanish so quit wasting everyone's time. Life is short try to actually enjoy it! The world needs more love, yet it's denied over hatred! "God" must really be proud right?
Anti gays complain so much about the word 'homophobia' as if it even matters what they're called. It's like a murderer complaining about the word killer.
