Lying flat refers to a defeatist lifestyle in Chin, where people stop working, desiring material acquisition, and tap out of any social life ā€“ sometimes for good. By lying flat, young people are participating in a kind of non-cooperation movement, rather than surrendering themselves to China's oppressive work culture where they see little hope of social mobility.

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 phobĆ³s 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.

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?

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.
