I hate it when people use words incorrectly, or make up words. For instance, homophobia is not a word, or rather, it is a word but doesn't mean what people think it does. Homophobia is the fear of things being to similiar somehow. Like seeing two people with the same haircut or something. Uranophobia (I hope I spelled this right) is the fear of homosexuality. Now for a movie reference. "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

i think it's kind of taken on a new meaning because of it's abuse in media.

The things that certain words are attached to these days carry new meanings.
I never knew that about the word 'homophobia'.
