Medically speaking, there is no such thing as "homophobia". A phobia is an irrational fear of something. My view of homosexuality is one of disdain, and repugnance. I'm convinced these poor souls are sick and depraved. But I don't run screaming from one. Like other mental illnesses, I bear them ill will. The same as I would view a person with Bipolar disorder, Autism, or Epilepsy. People don't choose these things either, but it doesn't mean they're normal or healthy. Homosexuality has many attendant complications. Higher incidence of Depression, suicide, STDs, plus an unnaturally and unusually high number of intimate partners. Promiscuity is held to be an unhealthy lifestyle and it's prevalent among homosexuals. Homophobia isn't.
