Where do you think homophobia/transphobia comes from?

A lot of things get labeled as homo/transphobic these days, for the purpose of this question I’m referring to overt hatred towards gay/transgender people.

For example: someone who would do something like this.

EDIT: a few people are getting hung up on this one example. Less interested in just this case but the overall pattern of fear/mistreatment of gay/transgender people throughout history and up to present day.
