That Curious Word, “Homophobia”

That Curious Word, “Homophobia”

Gay Video of the Week I’ve never liked the word “homophobia.” It implies fear, and I honestly don’t think most people who are anti-gay fear us.

I want to circle back to the event that led me to revive this blog sooner than I had otherwise planned. Trump is controversial. On this, if nothing else, I think we can all agree.
