    i know people who don't like gays....
    but they're not afriad of them
    so they're not homophobic just a bit of a ****?

    EDIT: main question is why do they call anti gay people homophobic when they aren't afraid?

    I don't really understand what the point of this thread is? Are you stating that your friends hate gay people and thats it? or are you looking for another word to describe your friends?

    They're asking why is it a 'phobia' when people aren't actually scared of them.
