Homphobia






I recently changed my MSN name to “Homophobia is Gay” and i was shocked to discover the amount of my friends who thought that was offensive or didnt know what homophobia was!

I have created beo gallery here of images against homophobia.

As for what is homophobia dictionary.com has this to say

ho·mo·pho·bi·a
n.
1. Fear of or contempt for lesbians and gay men.
2. Behavior based on such a feeling.


Wikipeidia’s
article on homophobia has this to say

The word homophobia means fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals. It can also mean hatred of and disparagement of homosexual people, their lifestyle, their sexual behavior, or culture, and is generally used to assert bigotry. Opposition to same-sex activism on religious, moral, or political grounds may also be referred to as “homophobic”. The word is most often used as a pejorative. The word’s definition reveals the dispute that lies at the heart of ethical discourse about same-sex relations.

Hopefully this will help some people to understand homophobia and combat it!!
