A homophobe is a person who fears homosexuals and/or homosexuality.
Homophobes have long (falsely) linked pederastic relationships between men and boys as inevitably leading to the "homosexualization" of the youths involved.
Homophobes are often repressed homosexuals who fear their own innate sexual orientation. Homophobes often go to great lengths to persecute homosexuals and BoyLovers. As the persecution of homosexuals in Western society has been becoming less and less politically correct, boylovers today bear the brunt of the pedophobe's wrath -- the pedophobe's fears about his own sexuality.
