You can't get rid of prejudice... it's impossible. I believe that as long as the thoughts are not acted upon- homophobia is not a problem.

Let me give you a real life example. I know a guy and he had a real problem with me being gay. Anyway I confronted him about it. In the end we just agreed to disagree. He accepts I'm gay and I accept he's homophobic.

Prejudice is not a problem. Discrimination is.
