Having read through the postings the following can be stated:
The op asked a valid question if it was a case of being homophobic cause the person at the movie theater was acting in a way that he was uncomfortable
with, and acting in a way that was a bit over the top when it came to being out, such as being a bit too flamboyant in their behavior, and words.
If the person hates all homosexuals, cause they are attracted to the same sex, then yes that is homophobia. But if it is say a behavior, such as
acting a bit over the top and flamboyant in their actions, and the conversation is a bit more on the sexual side, the answer is no, cause that is just
them being rude and sociably unacceptable.
The problem that I have seen in most cases like the one that the Op described is that people fail to understand or realize, and this very true of
minority or cliquish groups, is that to be accpeted and have tolerance on the part of society, is that they do have to tone it down and be repsectful,
tolerant and accept that not everyone is comfortable with them or their action. And if they are forcing it on a person, that is not right at all as
it shows a lack of tolerance on the part of the minority. Blending in, is not the same as hiding. Part of the problem has been that people want to
be accepted for who and what they are, yet fail to see that if they push it to make people accept it, then it starts the process of where people begin
to hate and despise the entire lot.
While many men, as one poster pointed out, is afraid that a homosexual man may touch them, the question is, would you find it sociably acceptable for
a straight man to touch a womans breast? No, it is not acceptable and ultimately gets the man in trouble for doing such, especially when it is
considered unwelcomed and ultimately distateful.
But back to the op's question, the answer is no, and believe it or not, there are homosexuals that do not like it when another in the community is
that flamboyant in public.
