A professor has proposed the change of 'Homophobia' to 'Anti Gay' because Homo means same and Phobo(s) means fear. Id Est: Homophobia means two or more persons fearing the same thing, example: Tom and John are afraid of elevators so they are homophobic about elevators. Thus Homophobia does not apply for fearing homosexual(s). It applies to two or more persons that have the same fear(Homo-same, Phobo-fear).
