Now that the lecture's over, you may be thinking, "Why did we go through all the trouble of learning that?" Simple: In modern media, '''''those three separate traits are often believed to be one single trait.''''' If you have a penis, you must be the kind of person who likes AmericanFootball and belching--period. If you like flowers and sort by clothes by color, you ''must'' own a vagina. And, if you 1) have a penis and 2) like to have sex with people who also have penises, you ''must'' be effeminate and foppish.

The {{Squick}} factor is important too. Homosexuality is a concept many straight people do not understand, and as Creator/HPLovecraft put it, "the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown." Men who engage in same-sex relations, especially those on the "receiving" end of anal intercourse, are considered unmanly in most modern cultures, and sick weirdos for not appreciating the fairer sex. Suggesting that a man is gay is often the worst insult against him in any language (except, in some cases, calling him a {{virgin|Shaming}} or a {{cuckold}}). For lesbians, it's a little different but not by much. GirlOnGirlIsHot, and it's okay to ogle women making out, but seriously acknowledging a relationship between two women (ie, women who don't need love, or at least sexual fulfillment, from a man) is a no-go. And this is where you get cases of people trying to CureYourGays through torture, often incorporating TheLudovicoTechnique or RapeAndSwitch.

Today, being homosexual is also about politics. As with [[UsefulNotes/AmericanGunPolitics gun control]], homosexuality, its legality, its normality and its social acceptability is a SingleIssueWonk for a lot of people on both sides of the debate. In modern American politics, for example, it's valid to ask, "Would you vote against [[UsefulNotes/BarackObama an African-American presidential candidate]] just ''because'' he's African-American, regardless of his actual platform," because some people would ''actually answer Yes'' to that question (or, vice versa, that they will vote for this person on account of his race even though the voter disagrees with him on every major political standpoint). A politician's stand on homosexuality can be a similar deal-breaker.

deal-breaker. It does not help that many gay people impose tests of ideological purity to determine who is [[NoTrueScotsman authentically gay]].

A "Homosexual" is a person, of either gender, who is emotionally and sexually attracted exclusively to people of the same gender.

Since homosexuality is harmless as far as sexual abnormalities go, why is there so much hostility towards and/or disapproval of it? One interpretation has to do with conditions people have lived in through history. In the past, child mortality rates were horrific; on average, half of all children died before the age of five[[note]]Today, it's one in twenty, and that's the the lowest it's ever been; just sixty years ago, it was three in twenty[[/note]]. DeathByChildbirth was also a major risk, which was even worse because it killed not only the mother, but every child she might have had thereafter. Long story short, you wanted every able-bodied male and female available to be involved in the process of continuing the species. Men and women not interested in reproducing (because they wanted to get busy with their own sex exclusively) added nothing to the process. It should be pointed out that in many cultures, however, having gay sex ''on the side'' was okay (in fact, sometimes man-on-man sex was considered a ''virtue''. Women-on-women was seen as non-existent as it was commonly believed in patriarchal societies that AllWomenArePrudes and only have sex to procreate), or given a blind eye, as long as you were still pumping out babies.
