A phobia is an anxiety disorder where someone has an irrational fear of something. I doubt what you are explaining is a real phobia. There are people who are against gay marriage, but I've yet to meet anyone who has anxiety and irrational fear of gay people.

It depends on how you define homophobic. If I say that I believe marriage should be between a man and a woman and you say that's homophobic, then yes (though I wouldn't call you a bigot).

I can love gays and respect them while holding on to traditional values.

Now if I start cracking jokes about gays, using language that's offensive and show that I'm uncomfortable around gays, then you feel free to call me a homophobe.

Define Homophobia. If it's some Christian saying he opposes Gay Marriage and you say "FUCK YOU HOMOPHOBIC ASSHOLE" then yes, you're a bigot.

Really? So because I am calling you out for your discrimination against me and the LGBTQA community I'm a bigot? Someone being gay is just like someone being black. Its BIOLOGICAL. You can't say "Oh well because you called me out and my gawd says gays are icky you're oppressing my religion by not allowing me to discriminate you." Is victim complex 101 and childish.

Homophobes absouletly do discriminate against the LGBTQA community by not allowing us to get married (Ask some southern judges) not allowing gay men to donate blood, etc, etc..

Not allowing for marriage because there was no way to biologically have kids was just an argument used by ppl that wanted to keep a biblical definition of marriage in a supposedly secular marriage system. And the argument itself breaks down when u ask if ppl who can't have kids due to complications can get married.

I have to stop you right there Jenna.
The reason the CDC won't allow gay men to donate blood is because their lifestyle puts them at extreme risk for STD's which puts the rest of the population at risk for infection.

www.cnsnews.com/news/article/penny-starr/cdc-official-syphilis-rates-among-gay-men-highest-start-hiv-epidemic

Screenings are better than they've ever been, but they're not infallible. STD rates in gay men have skyrocketed so badly that the CDC fears the rate is as bad as the HIV scare of the early '80's.
They're discriminated against for social health reasons. Not because the CDC doesn't like gay males.

Wow. That's more bigoted than homophobiaphobia. You're not accepting my opinion. Having homophobiaphobiaphobia is just being judgemental and condescending.

"The reason the CDC won't allow gay men to donate blood is because their lifestyle puts them at extreme risk for STD's which puts the rest of the population at risk for infection."
Homosexuality is not a lifestyle; it's merely a preference. Many homosexuals don't even engage in sexual activities at all, and thus aren't any more likely to have STD's than anyone else. Instead of needlessly making assumptions about homosexual individuals, the CDC should do what any normal medical intuition would do and simply ask their blood donors whether or not they are sexually active. Then, they can use that information to decide whether or not it is safe to allow a person to donate blood. Basing it off a person's sexuality makes no sense whatsoever.

Read the articles I cited. It covers all of that.

Both articles only talk about how "men who have sex with men" (which not all homosexuals are) are much more likely to have syphilis, and how PrEP may be causing men who have sex with men to use condoms less often.
I don't see anywhere where either article addresses anything I've said.

The definition of homosexuality IS attraction to men. It's a preference. That's why they were careful to use the phrase "men who have sex with men" in the two articles Jack linked. Your sexual activity has nothing to do with whether or not you are a homosexual.

Yes, it is.
Redefining terms in a way that differs from the definition the rest of the world uses is not helping anyone. It's just being annoying.

Homosexual = same sex. The "sexual" part refers to sex as in male/female, not as in lustful attraction. That's what sexualities are. They're descriptions of which sex a person is attracted to, sexually or romantically.

"Why isn't brotherly companionship homosexual? Why isn't every encounter between two men homosexual?"
Well, that's pretty obvious. Because two men who are merely friends or brothers aren't attracted to one another.
"You're the one redefining it to fit cultural norms."
No, I am not. This is the definition everyone but you agrees on.
"Love cannot be defined and emotional attraction can be completely dissociated with sexual attraction."
There's no such thing as "emotional attraction". We don't say you're "attracted" to your friend, or your brother, or your parent, etc. When we use the word "attraction" in this context, we are ALWAYS referring to either romantic or sexual attraction. There exists no attraction in the case of familial or friendly love.

It's not identical at all lmao. Have you never been romantically in love with someone? It is VERY different from familial love.
Familial/friendly love isn't even really a feeling at all; it's more of a passive love. When we say we "love" our sibling, or our mother, or our best friend, what we're really saying is just that we're so close with them that we would be devastated if anything bad happened to them, and that we really like having them be a part of our life. We don't experience any specific feeling just because we're around these people.
Romantic love, on the other hand, is an active love. When you're around someone you're romantically attracted to, you will experience a very strong feeling of pleasure, as if the person you're looking at is more beautiful than anything you've ever seen. It makes you want to do anything for the person. And make no mistake - this feeling is not sexual in any way, hence why there exists a distinction between romantic and sexual feelings.
