1. Fear of, aversion to, or prejudice against homosexuals, homosexuality, of gay or lesbian sexual acts. Some people claim that homophobic males are, deep down in their psyches, latent, self-loathing homosexuals.

Quote: Rosalie Maggio, The Dictionary of Bias-Free Usage (1991): ' According to researchers, gay men and lesbians are the target of more open and more intractable discrimination than that directed at any other minority group. (...) Research indicates that some men use hostility and violence against gay men to reassure themselves about their own sexuality.'
SEE ALSO: heterosexual bias; homoerotophobia; internalized homophobia.

2. Fear of sameness, of monotony.
