OK,has already given a truly amazing answer.
But, in addition to his wonderful description of our wonderful whore of a language, we don’t seem to have a regular suffix for “disapproval” or “hatred”. We do sometimes use “anti-” as in “antisemitic” (which is a mess of a word itself, since it is used to mean hatred of Jews and Jews are not the only Semites), for hatred of Blacks we use racist, not antiblack or antiebonic or what have you.
Hatred in Latin (per Google Translate) is odium, which seems to work as a suffix, so we could have:
Homosexualodium – Yikes! That’s long!
Ludaeiodium – hatred of Jews
Nigerodium – hatred of Blacks
and so on.
It would be easier to just call all these nasty folk assholes, but assholes are useful. Try living without one!
