What is homophobia and why does it happen?
Homophobia encompasses a range of negative attitudes and feelings toward homosexuality or people who are identified or perceived as being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). It can be expressed as antipathy, contempt, prejudice, aversion, or hatred, and may be based on irrational fear. - Wikipedia
This attitude can derive from:
- religion/faiths which dislike homosexuality
- lack of education in such a subject
- being ignorant
Such an example of blatant hate is:
Westboro Baptist Church
They picket at dead soldiers funerals and public areas to sate that homosexuality is wrong, that America is going to hell for supporting the idea and that the army is also responsible for idealizing the sexual orientation by allowing homosexual individuals to fight for their country
