Homophobia: Per the dictionary...

1. Fear or contempt for lesbian and/or gay men
2. Behaviors based on such a feeling
3. Unreasoning fear or antipathy towards homosexuals or homosexuality

People reject what they don't understand
They judge, condemn and reprimand
They stay safe and comfortable in their high position
Looking at me with disdain and opposition
Underneath it all, we're really all the same
Yet they will always need someone to blame
I'm different yes, but WHO I love is not key
It's HOW I love that actually makes you different from me
I love unconditionally, with acceptance and grace
You love with restrictions, worried about saving face
I guess we're not the same, thanks for making that clear
I love freely and you live in fear
