Describing homophobia through the representative colors of homosexuality is like break up its meaning , break the barriers to open the debate with mutual respect . There’s the will to ask everyone of us the reasons for this discrimination, the reason for this fear. Removing the fear (the ” phobia " word - that in greek means “fear”- is fading ) remains the only integral part of our universe, the man.
"I’m not an homophobic person at all, but, hey, don’t hug me in public. I’m not homophobic but I’m against the same sex marriage. I’m not homophobic but two guys kissing near me? Ew, is gross. I’m not an homophobe but I’m Christian and be gay is not right. I’m not homophobic but stay away from my children, gay teachers! I’m not homophobic because I think I am not. But I surely am."
