What Is The Reason For Homophobia?

edited October 2011 in Sex
Q: What is the real reason for homophobia?

A: Let us first examine the cause behind any fear we have of things we don't understand. Fear in itself is the manifestation of a lack of love, and love is the key ingredient in understanding the differences we have with others. Since homophobia is essentially a fear of an unknown, a lifestyle that is foreign to another can lead to the passing of judgements, or in this case, a fear of expressing affection towards someone of the same sex. For many this is still a societal taboo (although in some ancient cultures the lifestyle was widely accepted). Today the restrictions are starting to loosen but the old fears remain firmly fixed in those who cling to belief systems that inflate their self worth through the castigation of others.
