In my experience it's mostly these three:
- "monke can't, so monke angy" (TL: "I can't comprehend what this means, which makes me angry, so it must be bad")
- "if it had a dick, it's gay" (I mostly understand this concern of theirs, but it's also just reinforcing a stereotype of a subset upon all the people)
- "religion says no u" (not much to say about this. monke see, monke do)

Phobia in truth would not be the correct term. Many people (I would say only men) do not have"fear" of them but they are disgusted, repulsed, horrified because they associate them with an abnormal, deviant, degraded sexuality. I strongly emphasize that this is NOT my opinion but a consideration of widespread popular psychology.

I'll add a few words for the sake of clarity.
1) When I was very young I too, like many, felt stupidly this way.
2) Today I understand the suffering and perhaps the despair of being torn apart inwardly by different conflicting tendencies, and the difficulty of finding an inner balance, always precarious.

3) Sexual activity is an absolutely intimate and private matter, and the only one that interests me (strongly) is my own.
4) A colleague of mine at work is transsexual (but has not yet been operated on) and is also a great friend of mine: today I easily recognize his merits of bringing together feminine sensitivity and compassion with male rationality and determination.
