Jim Tailor Interesting bits of the Bible (111* d) RE: Interesting bits of the Bible 01 Feb 05


I know that's what homophobia is purported to mean now. But at the inception of the use of the word, wasn't the implication that the fear was self-directed? That the true "homophobia" was the fear that one was homosexual themself -- and that was the impetus for such strong outward denial -- to the point of proving one's "non-homosexuality" by persecuting overt homosexuality?

Just the way I'd always heard the etymology. But then I always heard...

"Ain't no woman like the one-eyed got"

(by the way -- I think its use is usually an intellectual dodge - just as Eagle see it)
