If somebody doesn't like homosexuals, they are homophobic.

Intolerant seems to be a more accurate word, because it's not necessarily from 'fear' as phobic implies.

It's not a matter of fear, it's a poorly constructed word. Somebody who dislikes homosexual (or people of sexualities other than heterosexual) is homophobic.

If somebody doesn't like homosexuals, they are homophobic.

As I mentioned, there are religious reasons behind some peoples feelings. They may be perfectly comfortable around gay people, but just not think there sexuality is "right"

Somebody who dislikes homosexual (or people of sexualities other than heterosexual) is homophobic.

I can already tell you, without reading all of them, that at least two don't state this. It isn't about necessarily disliking, but fear/aversion, that gives the status of "homophobe"

I can tell you that I don't pretend to "tolerant", because I'm not.
Here's why:
Homosexual behavior is extremely foul and although I couldn't care less about what they do to themselves, I do care I if they adopt children and perform obscene sexual acts on them. If you don't agree with that, I just don't know what the hell your problem is. I guess you all have been severely brainwashed. This isn't about just two people who love each other. I'm deeply concerned for people like small children who fall victim to their behavior and diseases such as AIDS.
+ if a homosexual man doesn't like women, I guess he could be called gynophobic? Just though I'd throw that in.

Aversion is not the same as fear. I'm sure you can look that up, but every single link I posted refers to something besides fear.

if they adopt children and perform obscene sexual acts on them

Do you believe queer couples do this?

I suppose all heterosexual women are then gynophobic too? You can like someone without being sexually or romantically attracted to them, you know.

Ever heard of The National Man-Boy Love Association? Yes, there are many groups of homosexuals that do this, even entire organizations dedicated to it! Where do you think child pornography comes from? You know, the only reason I'm engaging in this is because I'm standing up fro those who can't or who not old enough to speak for themselves yet. This is horrible, and no one should tolerate things like this!!!, but most people are to afraid to stand up for what's right. I'm not.

You're obviously highly informed and ignorant about homosexuals and what they are, but that's okay because we're all here to learn so I won't hold it against you.

Sexual orientation has no effect on personality nor tendencies leaning towards pedophilia. Being heterosexual or atheist isn't going to make you a murderer, a racist, etc, so why would being homosexual make you a pedophile? And I can assure you that children of homosexual couples grow up just fine. Their sexual orientation isn't affected by their parents at all. Also, not all couples have AIDS. In the case that they do, AIDS wouldn't be transferred to the child normally anyways.

Also, "homosexual behavior" is not real. They don't behave like anything. The only thing being homosexual is, is being attracted to the same gender. Doesn't affect ethics, morals, personality, likes, dislikes, etc just like how being heterosexual doesn't necessarily make you a good person.

There is an obvious fallacy in this, mentioned in Pazx' post. Just because you're not sexually or romantically attracted to their sex does not mean you fear or hate them.

Ever heard of the KKK? Should all white people be condemned because the loud racist and bigoted ones that are in there are white?

Where do you think child pornography comes from?

Pedophiles, not necessarily homosexuals.

Woah, slow down there. Nobody said child sex abuse was right, and the cause you're fighting for is noble.

But you're fighting the wrong people, man.

That's like saying heterosexual behaviour is extremely foul because they mistreat, beat, rape and murder their own children. Seriously, this happens.

*sighs heavily* alright, here we go.

Thank you for at least agreeing to that at least.

Here's what I mean. But first keep in mind that I'm trying to keep this as clean as possible since this is a website that many younger viewers use.

Homosexual behavior is extremely foul

:
I was referring to what they perform on each other. This Includes many things I won't and am not allowed to say on this site. There's a lot more than what your sexual education teacher told you. And honestly, you don't want to know. I don't know how old you are, but I would recommend not trying to find out.
And please don't throw the KKK at me when I say that there are entire organizations dedicated to child abuse. The KKK is nothing any more. On the other hand, the child abuse problem is much severe now a days.
