Quoteth I - "I'm pretty sure that homophobia outside of secret gays too afraid to admit their deviance is non existent, at least on an individual basis . Replace it with 'self hatred projected onto others' and it would be more accurate as a label, vs 'homophobe'.
I'm yet to meet a homophobe who's not also a secret fudge packer. So in effect the only people hatefully dissing gays are gays. Individuals who are not self hating gays frankly don't care unless it impinges on their traditions or cultural sphere, eg. institutions such as marriage. Even then they will be opposed to gay marriage or gay couple adoption of minors, rather than gays themselves.
And this can be extrapolated further, to labels such as 'transphobe', 'racist', 'fascist', etc. Just pure unadulterated PROJECTION. See antifa, which openly utilizes fascist tactics to fight its perceived enemies."
