True Homophobia

(paraphrased from Last Comic Standing last night) "If someone's truly afraid of the dark, you don't call him a bigot. You don't shove him into a dark cupboard to help him get over it. But, with homophobia, there's an entirely different stigma. What if the person literally had a traumatic experience growing up? Like, a homosexual jumped out of the closet and sat on them or something? Give them time to heal."
