Cam hates the word homophobia because no one is actually scared of a gay person because they are gay. They may not agree with their lifestyle or understand why they are attracted to the same sex but they are certainly not afraid of them which is what a phobia is.
Of course when Cam expresses that opinion people often assume that he is ” homophobic.” The disorder that Cam, myself and both our now adult children suffer from is pedanticism. We don’t like words that we believe are inaccurate. We do however all share the same sense of humour and Cam always responds to accusations of homophobia with the same statement…
” Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it.”
We may not all agree on the meaning of the word homophobic but that is no reason to not take the test.
I scored 9% so it is unlikely that I will be running in terror pursued by a gay man or woman anytime soon.
Take the test here.
