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?
