    Homophobia is fueled by heterosexuals who exaggerate the gender norms assigned by our society to validate their sexuality. Paradoxically, heterosexuals have found a way for homoeroticism to be socially acceptable while still placing negative emphasis on homophobia.

Homophobia targets marginalized groups that ultimately reproduces sexism, racism, and classism.
