Unfortunately, humans have a tendency to fear the things they don't understand. Homosexuality happens to be one of those things certain people don't care to gain knowledge about. Gays have been noted throughout history, but with some hesitation. The simple fact that gays won't go away, should indicate that homosexuality is simply a part of life, century after century.
Most people who interact with gay people before knowing the person is gay, find the fear and confusion dwindles a bit; the person is seen as someone they like, before something they hate.

Most people are straight, or live a straight life. Homosexuality has never been the majority- for that alone, it seems odd, unnatural, hence, disgusting.
There are just as many people who look at a black person and feel hate and disgust...I've had hate speech spoken to me from a homosexual.
People hate and feel disgusted over one another and can be evil for no reason. And there is no reason- unless someone has personally assaulted you.

Many, if not most, people believe that seeing two guys with 5 o'clock shadows embracing and French kissing in a public place is not a pretty sight.
UNFORTUNATELY some people who refuse to understand it insinuate that some humans have a tendency to fear the things they don't understand.
WELL GUESS WHAT - that is so wrong!
If that was the case then those who support
sex with people under 18 would also get their way.
sex with animals would get their way
sex with machines would get their way
FACT IS even though the insurance lobbyists have gotten the issue removed as a classification of sickness just means that the ultra rich capitalists now do not have to pay out to fix the problem - they make more money supporting liberalism
.... and decent society has been severely shafted!
Most likely because they are simply on the outside looking in and hence feeling threatened by what they do not understand.
