The word “HOMOPHOBIA” and the anti-gay agenda
Many anti-gay activists have a problem with the word “homophobia”. The word homophobia first appeared in print in an article written for the May 23, 1969, edition of the American tabloid Screw, in which the word was used to refer to heterosexual men’s fear that others might think they are gay.
The anti-gay movement repudiates the word mainly because they don’t want to make it seem as though they have a prejudice but rather mere “disagreement’ with what they call “the homosexual lifestyle” just as how white nationalists don’t think they are racist and repudiate the word “racism”.
The British National Party from the United Kingdom which until 2010 never allowed non-white people to join its party and opposes mixed-race relationships because according to them “when whites take partners from other ethnic groups, a white family line that stretches back into deep pre-history is destroyed.” They repudiate their racism when their leader Nick Griffin said:
“The BNP is not a ‘race supremacist’ party. The BNP does not claim that any one race is superior to any other, simply that they are different. The party merely wishes to preserve those differences which make up the rich tapestry of human kind… to protect and preserve the racial and cultural integrity of the British people – and of others too – the party believes in separation… To sum up, the BNP is fighting for the very right to exist of not just the British but of all peoples.”
Trying to nice up their prejudice like homophobes with statements like “The BNP does not claim that any one race is superior to any other, simply that they are different” and “The party merely wishes to preserve those differences which make up the rich tapestry of human kind”.
Breaking up the word “homophobia” and assuming it still means fear of homosexuals because it includes the word “phobia” is called an etymological fallacy. Fallacy is a nice word for bad arguments.
