AP eliminating "homophobia" from style guide
Well, dream on.
The word "homophobia" was first used to indicate a homosexuals fear that others might think he was gay. It has been transformed by gay rights groups and a complicit media into a pejorative term for people they disagree with and one that implies that people with traditional views about sexuality may have a mental problem--the very thing gays complained about being charged of themselves for being homosexual.
But it turns out the AP just wanted to have journalists replace it with the word "anti-gay."
We're waiting for the AP to allow the label "anti-religious" for groups who disagree with church strictures against homosexuality. But we're not holding our breath.
