Is "homophobia" or "homophobe" a slang term or a medical term?

Just curious.

My guess is that homophobe is a slang term that
gets used way too much here.I know that some
have added this label to me and other members of faith.

I don't care what others do behind closed doors,do they



How on earth is homomsexuality being forced down your throat M? no one is asking that you join them .






It is pretty sad when ones' sexual appetites defines who they


Not as sad as being judged and tortured based on that definition

Phobia is a term used both in medicine and non-specialist contexts.

But why do you ask? You can use a dictionary as anybody else, and if you fasten for ONE definition suiting your purposes, such an exclusivity is not binding for the rest of us.

On my part I said.....for the duration.

Now.....the end of semantic games.

I'll drop it when you grow up and cease to use a slang term to ridicule people who don't see things the same way you do. No one here is terrified of homosexuals. There is no phobia.

As I haven't seen these posters being pulled down, only had them described, it would be of some importance if opposition to the posters would tell me exactly, what's in them worth insisting on censorship for. Censorship is a pretty heavy thing to demand.

If anybody else wants to go further and in a more general context tell me what's specifically 'bad' about public gay-manifestations, I would also be obliged. To my remembrance, there have only been hints of 'associations'.

And obviously the whole debate on the civil rights of hetero-sexuality vs. homo-sexuality has been totally ignored by the pro-christian side, so we have to restart from square one. Hopefully this time ACCENTUATING the BASIS of either homophobia or just blind belief in a book.

Btw a book, where the part about homosexuals is toned down, when love of christ is the issue, but obviously not so outdated as the 'real and modern' new-covenant christians pretend, when it's about other things.

So we're already at the character defamation level. It was quick this time.

And ofcourse there's a homophobia, a special kind of christians suffer from it.

Is, isn't, is, isn't .........

Well lets put Ruth and Naomi into context shall we?
www.readbookonline.net...
Cleave also means to Hug. Looks to me like she was Hugging her goodbye. I mean afe3r all they were monther and daughter in law.

As far as David and Johnathon go well, apparently platonic relationships don't mean much anymore to folks.
Its not as if David did not have another man killed because he wanted his wife. LOL To me that sounds like a guy with some pretty major heterosexual as well as lustful tendencies to me.

Considering that your question is a small step forward in the direction of not trying to dictate my options, even to the point of dictating which dictionaries I can use (e.g. medical or not)..........I should maybe just be diplomatic and oblige you.

But you still use the method of formulating questions as "yes" or "no", "black" or "white", "this" or "that" leaving out options not fitting to your expectations.

Instead of all this convoluted almost-scholastics, you could have asked me:

"What dictionary do you use, and what does it say?"

I hope, you one day will come to the insight, that debate-tactics can have a strong backlash, if it's used excessively. With some theists I could probably soon have reached a common agreement on a suitable word in this context, without going into a p*ssing contest of labels.

Imo the important part of this thread is censorship manifested practically against a targeted minority group. If this minority is called b*tt-pirates and your group 'closet anal-retentive'; ....or housebroken: Same gender sex and sexual purists.....is of minor interest for me.

Apparantly not for you.

Comparing apples to apples can I refer to you from now on as a "Christophobe" or point out that you suffer from "Christiophobia"?

I mean, you don't agree with Christians or Christianity so therefore you must be terrified of both.


Can you not answer my question? Is "Homophobia" a slang term or a medical one? If you are incapable of answering let me know and I'll drop it.

Sorry Bogomil, I refuse to allow you to further the stereotype that all people who object to homosexuality are irrational. The term "Homophobe" implies that all such criticism is irrational, and ignores that there are people who reject the practice of homosexual sex for sociological, psychological and medical reasons that have nothing to do with religion.

There is no such thing as a "fear" or terror of homosexuals or homosexual behavior.

You should by now know me well enough to know, that MY phobia is: Ideological missionary extremism, threatening democratic principles.

I WON'T answer questions where attempts to paint me into a corner are present.
