RE: Your experiences with homophobes-
My mother argued that she wasn't a homophobe for years because she isn't scared of gays, just wants them to be rounded up and put in a gas chamber.

However quite recently I finally managed to convince her to look up homophobic in the dictionary and accept that a phobia is also used to define an irrational hatred, not just fear.

Well... Now she's saying she's not a homophobe because 'homo' is another word for man and that means that homophobic should be "scared of men" and nothing to do with gays, "gays have just bastardised the word to spread their evil agenda around the world".

tell her now that she's mistaking greek with latin, homo means man in latin but equal in greek. Homophobia is a mix of two greek words homo (equal) and phobia (fear)

I doubt she'll listen xD

Either she'll block out what I say, in which case she'll forget in an hour, or she'll know what I said makes sense and put a chair through the living room door... Again xD

I am almost afraid to ask...what is their evil agenda?

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

As far as I can tell their "evil agenda" is to kiss on TV and have sex with eachother on the internet. xD
