Top definition
Someone who repeatedly whines that homosexuals endanger family values and the sanctity of marriage, until outed as a closet case, desperately afraid of the gay person looking back in the mirror.

Someone who calls homosexuality a "lifestyle choice" but their own biology disagrees. Think about it: did you CHOOSE to be straight? As a teenager did you sit down one day and decide whether to be attracted to boys or girls?
It isn't surprising that stories about homophobes (like Bob Allen, Roy Ashburn, Bruce Barclay, Larry Craig, John Curtin, Mark Foley, Matthew Glavin, Ted Haggard, Phillip Hinkle, Glenn Murphy, Brent Parker, George Rekers, Ed Schrock, etc) often end with "was caught behind the restroom with a cock in his mouth".

This should mean someone who's afraid of sameness, or afraid of humans. Instead, it means someone who hates homosexuals (but may or may not actually be afraid of them).
"Why were they gay-bashing?"
"Because they're homophobes."
"But if they're scared of gays, why didn't they run screaming at the sight of them?"
"I didn't come up with the term!"

An individual who possesses the fear of homosexuals.
Homophobe: Hey, did you hear that new Lady Gaga song, Born This Way? I think it should be called Born This Gay!

In the example above, a homophobe uses the word gay to insult a song that emphasizes how your sexual orientation doesn't make you a bad person.

A Homophobe is someone who is on the Black & White spectrum of politics (Bigoted Extremist whether they’d like to think they are or not) and has a hatred of Gays and those whom support gays. Homophobe’s colloquial and rhetorical effect is often closer to that of ‘disagreement with homosexuality’ rather than it’s denotation meaning ‘Fear of Same or Repetition’.
They will often try to pass off baseless claims, such as the following, as a credible refutation:
-Gay relationships are immoral and violate the sacred institution. (While this is only true in 17th century Puritanical ‘scripture’ instead of the actual Hebrew Aramaic Scripture.) HURR DURR You’re only trying to demonize Christians, and most branches of Islam and Orthodox Judaism, while in fact the ‘why it’s immoral’ portion of our argument is void due to the fact that the denomination is based on the principal root of demonizing those who don’t conform to an obsolete belief system.
-It isn’t natural, although my argument betrays a considerable ignorance of behavior in the animal kingdom. The fact is that among the approximately 1500 animal species whose behavior has been extensively studied, homosexual behavior in animals has been described in at least 450 of those species. It runs the gamut, too, ranging from occasional displays of affection to life-long pair bonding including sex and even adopting and raising orphans, going so far as the rejection by force of potential heterosexual partners.
Republican: “HURR DURR My Opinions consist of generalizations and unsubstantiated mis-information. You demonize my opinion even though it is a normative analysis, and it’s base is of fallacies and benighted arguments.”
This republican is a Homophobe.
