Homophobia Day? Really?

So I just found out that May 17 was the International Day Against Homophobia. Did we really need to go there? As a writer, my sensitivity to words is heightened even though I would give Dubya a run for his money when it comes to botching the English language while spoken. There is a gaping discrepancy with the word homophobia. According to Merriam-Webster it came about in 1969 and is defined as an irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals.

The word ‘homophobic’ is illegitimate and waters down the validity of meaning and definition, once again. The left is proficient at convoluting everything they touch, and the notion of having given a National Day to recognize people who are afraid of homosexuals is bizarre to me. I am confused. What happens on Homophobia Day? Who marches in the parade? Homosexuals? Heterosexuals?

Constitutions are not designed for metaphysical or logical subtleties, for niceties of expression, for critical propriety, for elaborate shades of meaning, or for the exercise of philosophical acuteness or judicial research. They are instruments of a practical nature, founded on the common business of human life, adapted to common wants, designed for common use, and fitted for common understandings.
