Great News! Brazil is looking like the"wild west" at the moment. At least some civilised outcome to make us a little bit proud of the country.

You can't make homophobia a crime. A phobia is unrealistic fear for something. You can only make the actions as a result of homophobia a crime, like discrimination.
As it should be.

I’m totally in favor of making discrimination against lbgt illegal. But how can you criminalize fear?

To be a crime I think we need to be very very careful, as people are allowed to have and voice an opinion in certain situations.
Let's make sure that the Red Dwarf TV programme comedy sketch on people being arrested for any sort of verbal criticism does not take another step closer to reality.

Thoughts and beliefs cannot reasonably be policed. Actions can be policed. Making it illegal for someone to hold a thought or belief is anathema to free speech. You can hold a belief and never act on said thought/action. If you are unable to see the difference between thought/belief and actions that sounds like you have a problem.

Stop calling people 'homophobic', - they are not 'scared' of gay people, they are bigots. And no, we don't need laws to behave like humane people, what other people do in their private life is of no concern to anyone, as long as both (or more) people are agreed, and are of an age where they can give meaningful consent
