liberal homophobia

the acceptance of homosexuality as long as it remains hidden; the idea that one may tolerate or accept same-sex attracted people, as long as they keep it to themselves and any discussion of, or relating to, homosexuality is oppressed.

Such an example is the sentiment that, “I have nothing against gay people, I just don’t know why they have to shove it in our faces” – where essentially, the sentiment is that gay people should exist in the closet, and not live as openly as their heterosexual peers.
