In modern times this is probably the most misused word. The first part of the word, homo comes from the masculine Latin noun homo hominis (a third declension noun for any latin scholars) and it translates as man or human being. Phobia comes from the Greek word phobós which translates as fear or morbid fear. So when combined they form the word homophobic which is and adjective for one who is afraid of man and a non homophobe, one who fears man, or homophobia, the fear of man. There is nothing about homosexuality in homophobia. A better word may be homosexaphobic.
Homophobic is used wrong because very few humans are afraid of human beings. Homophobia is most prevalent in all other species who have become afraid of humans because of our harmful actuons which result in their habitat loss and eventual death.

A retard with no understanding of language or origin's way of addressing people who don't like gays. Because if they don't like something, than they must be afraid of it.

Homophobe means fear of things being the same. It's time for a littl language lesson, children.

homo: means "same" in Greek. Also means "human" in Latin, but phobia is Greek, and you can't combine Greek and Latin just like you can't combine male and female unless your some freakish she-male bitch who was the result of incest.

phobia: means "fear" or "panic" in Greek. Derives from the son of Ares, "Phobos" (I think that was his name, it sounds a lot like that.)
homophobic = fear of same.
moar tards moar stupid people geting their understanding of language from common useage.
Person A: I dislike homosexuals.

The absolute dumbest term one can use to describe someone with no tolerance for homosexual behavior. Assumes that one must have a deep-seated fear of gays in order to feel contempt for them or insult them, as opposed to just being ignorant, hateful or brusque.

Are people who hate gays bigotted and hick-like? Yes. Afraid of them? Nobody says "Jewphobia", they say antisemitism, and a Klansman is not a "blackophobe". Try watching Will and Grace and then tell me that a gay man is something to be feared.
Example of the term "homophobic" being properly used:

Cletus: Fags're threatinin' mah way of life! Gawd's fixin' teh punish Amer'cans!

Person with Brain: Wow, homophobic much?

---------------------

Example of using the term like a fucking idiot:

Emilio: You listen to Coldplay? Ha! Faggot!

Robyn: OH MY GOD you said "faggot"! That's so ignorant and homophobic!

Emilio: You're embarassingly PC. Ever hear of colloquial use, retard?

Anti-conservative slur used by liberals to justify loathing Christians, Jews and adolescent males.

An accusation made by heterophobes against heterosexuals to justify their anti-straight bias.

A word overused by the same people who also claim that racism and sexism are as bad or worse today than even in the days of Nazi Germany.

Usually overused by the same yuppies that confuse Christians and Jews, who read the Bible with genocidal Germans from 1943.
The United States is a homophobic, sexist, racist society that deserved the 9-11 attacks.

Americans are nothing more than overweight, homophobic, white trash rednecks, who deserve to die in a terrorist attack.

You breeders are nothing but a bunch of redneck homophobes in the KKK.

what nerds and hippies people call you when you use the word gay as an insult. Bad word for what people use it for as most 'homophobes' aren't actually afraid of gay people.
guy: that is so gay!
dork: don't be homophobic! that is insulting!
guy: why, are you gay?

A word created by the radical left, as part of liberals' conspiracy to distract from the real issues of bigotry by creating blatantly incorrect terms for things. "Homo" means "same" and "phobia" means "fear"; "homophobia" means "fear of homosexuals, but people who hate homosexuals aren't afraid of them, they think they're immoral... regardless of whether or not you think they're immoral, you shouldn't endorse the popularization of false terminology.
John: "Bryant, I hate you, stop checking out my ass."

Bryant: "Oh my God, you fucking homophobe"

John: "Actually, I'm not afraid of homosexuals, I just think penises belong in vaginas, not anuses. There's a reason why ass sex makes you bleed."
