Cut from intro:
- In English, homo can refer to the biological genus Homo. In this case it comes from the Latin root and should be pronounced hom-o (as in Homo sapiens). It can it can also be derogatory slang for a homosexual man, or, as a prefix in compound words, it can mean "the same," as in homogenized or homophone. In this case it comes from a Greek root and should be pronounced ho-mo.
I'm not sure why we even need this. Looks this this is disinformation. Everything about the gay rights movement is designed to confuse rather than enlighten. Activists don't like clarity. "That is so gay". ;-)
We don't have to follow Wikipedia's lead and try to put every possible meaning and aspect of something - especially since we are younger and smaller. Let's just talk about the genus here. --Ed Poor 21:08, 22 May 2007 (EDT)
