homophobia

intense hatred or fear of homosexuals or homosexuality

homophobia

the fear of HOMOSEXUALITY. Although there has been some suggestion that homophobia may exist as a personality trait, it is more fruitful to examine the social conditions under which homosexual behaviour is proscribed (in England and Wales this happened in 1885, when male homosexuality was criminalized), and becomes an organizing principle for particular roles, identities and subcultures (Weeks, 1977).
