Hi! Thanks for the very interesting question. It seems that the general notion that men are more homophobic that women is the US is widely accepted. However, it can still be inferred that a significant number of women are homophobic. In this survey of US American culture towards homosexuals. In a survey of 2,823 students from 8th to 12th grade, three-quarters of the boys and half the girls said it would be bad to have a homosexual neighbor. The article can be found below.
