Homers Phobia is a brilliant Simpsons episode with a very well written storyline with loads of really funny scenes.The episode is an absolute classic episode of the Simpsons,and is also a very groundbreaking episode for its time,as it's storyline heavily revolves around a gay character,which no show had previously dealt with.The character,John (voiced by John Waters) is such a memorable character,his personality and his interest in all things collectible are hilarious and this makes him without a doubt one if the highlights of the eight season.Watching Homer trying to get Bart interested in more manly things is also very funny and memorable,this episode is without a doubt a classic.Homers Phobia is a great episode of the Simpsons.

After the family befriends a gay man,Homer is frightened when Bart starts to behave like him and try's get him interested in more manly activities.
