What would be a word similar to but different from "homophobic?"?
To me, homophobic means a person who has a phobia against gay people. They’re disgusted and horrified at what gays are and what they stand for. I don’t think this is how the majority feel about gays. I certainly don’t. I like them.
What would be a good word with lasting possibilities for the many people who are uncomfortable around gay people, maybe embarrassed by them and , although not phobic, just wish to avoid socializing with them? A word more descriptive than , “jerk.”
