Why not leave the theorising to the actual scientists?

The error is that they fail to realise that if they did become gay, they would lust after the same sex and get sexual pleasure from same sex relations/fantasies.

Do you know how religiously based homophobia works?
Getting pleasure from same-sex intercourse is just the devil tempting you.

Asexualphobia isn't a recognised phenomenon, as far as I am aware, perhaps because it is so rare, but I think perhaps that would be rational; and not a phobia at all.

Why are we suddenly switching topics to asexuality?
And yes there are people who have irrational objections to it, mostly based on appeals to personal ignorance, incredulity and emotion.
I've yet to see someone present a rational case for asexualphobia. You seem to think there is: go ahead, present it.
