so not true! possibly in some cases but not all.
Homo means the same type or sex. Phobic means fear. Homophobic means having fear of the same things including sex. Honestly, there is nothing to be feared for sex because there are two genders which are women and men. Homophobic person feels insecure about their own sexuality maybe because they have a bad experience in the past related to sexuality.
I think there's some truth to that, however I don't think it applies to everyone. You can be pretty secure about your sexuality but you might have been brought up in a very intolerant home and just picked that up.
It's one thing to disagree with homosexuality because of religious beliefs; it's a completely different thing to be homophobic. Homosexuality is not contagious, so what does a heterosexual person need to fear? It makes no sense. I agree that it is due to insecurity about their own sexuality - if you are comfortable with yourself then you should care less about someone else's choice!
