My daughter who just turned 14 came home all excited today.  She’d received a very good grade on a poem she wrote and when I read it, I said that it would be a great addition to our blog.  She seemed to like the idea of it being posted – so here it is:

Homo”phobia”~ by Renate Gritter

Phobia, what does it mean?

A fear, that’s at least what it seems to be

What is fear?  A thing that makes you scared

Well then what is homophobia?

The fear of homosexuals?

I think not.
