What actually is "homophobia"?
Presumably it means an irrational fear of homosexuals or homosexual activity. I don't think compassion for those are homosexual or are attracted to the same sex, YET think these activities are not morally acceptable is equivalent to an irrational fear. So how does one persecute..I mean prosecute someon for a phobia. If it is truly a medical condition, or phobia, then I don't think imprisoning or fining someone is appropriate. Maybe they could go to a class. Or a reeducation camp to have homosexuality as normal forced upon them. Until they openly profess their error.

Etymologically it would be "fear of that which is the same" (see "homophone", "homopolar", and for that matter "homosexual").

A fear of homosexuals would probably be "ganymedophobia", if "catamitophobia" were thought too brusque. And you'd need a separate name for fear of lesbians.

How does the prosecution plan to prove an instinctive feeling. There must be evidence of harm done.

This is PC world. All they need is for someone in a protected class to be offended.
