Why every aversion towards something is now called "-phobia"?

Why every aversion towards something is now called "-phobia"?
There are many negative feelings that might stand behind someone's aversion towards things. Let's take homosexuals as an example - I doubt fear is the main reason for all the negativity they get.
A good example of an actual political phobia would be Islamophobia.
To represent a professional approach, I will not say we should swap these terms, but rather we should distinguish what kind of feelings stand behind someone's lack of sympathy towards something.

    -phobia is used to indicate an irrational aversion, not necessarily overt fear (though some sort of existential fear often does underlie the more abstract phobias)

        Look Anon you probably hotglue shitting dicknipple figurines, I don't judge, we're on IQfy, you do you, do you honestly think I should hate you for your weird fetishes and clear irrationality?

        It's taking things that are objectively unhealthy to an individual/society and trying to frame them as some sort of personal issue.

        Yes, homophobia is objectively unhealthy to society and shouldn't be considered a valid opinion.

            I do believe you are being overly pedantic and literal in order to feign ignorance and avoid addressing the point though (more irrationality)

            You haven't made any point. You just implied some things which were clearly wrong. You want to claim otherwise? Show us how you rationally arrive from your premises to your conclusion.
            I dislike cheese but I don't dislike people for eating cheese nor do I dislike Dutch or French culture because that would be irrational. Capisce?

            I have business elsewhere so I won't be here to evaluate your answer but if past results are any indication I don't believe I'm missing much and I'll probably be correct to reiterate that you are being irrational.

          phobia isn't just fear, but also disgust/aversion, the hatred stems from the digust/aversion because its really hard to imagine someone that hates homosexuals for no other reason than merely hating them, also words change meaning

          The problem is it's someone's random opinion that something is irrational. It's usually framing your views that disagree with theirs as irrational. More so, it's turning it into some entrenched meme they can namedrop all the time without rhyme or reason to try to attack anyone or shut down any conversation, for whatever reason.

            Actually saying something meaningful? Not a meme your ingroup has vague associations about? Not trying to shut down differing opinions, not matter how mild? Not egotistically obliterating the social basis everything we do is built on for some cheap good feefees on social media?

            As opposed to discussing why a person does not like something, and trying to directly rebut their points, calling it a phobia or mental illness is just a lazy debate tactic to try to shut down discussion on the subject.

            What is a "meme" is and how is it different from an ancient greek suffix?

    Even hate against islam is not phobia. It's based on islamic behaviour, that already been there and can't have support of society, such as terrorism.

    Homosexuals are also something like domestic terrorist.

    I am pretty sure that trying to claim your political or ideological opponents as having some sort of mental illness has been going on ever since humans came up with the idea of mental illness.

      Who is claiming pro-homosexuals are mentally ill? The argument is that homosexuality itself is a disorder.

        Its the pro homosexuals claiming that their opponents have a phobia about homosexuality, or pro Islamic people doing the same about people who are not fond of Islam that I was referring too. Saying people that oppose you have something mentally wrong with them goes way back; the Soviet Union was notorious for putting political critics into mental institutes, or back in the 1850s some doctors began pushing the belief that slaves who tried to escape suffered from a form of mania. Its generally a lazy argument, used to try to shut down debate about certain subjects.
