ANOTHER Study Confirms Homophobes are Actually Damaged, Closeted Homosexuals
Describing the loudest homophobes as “at war with themselves” and projecting internal conflicts outward on those who threaten then by reminding them of something with, researchers from the University of Rochester, the University of Essex, England, and the University of California Santa Barbara have published the results of a study confirming that homophobes are in fact deeply closeted homosexuals themselves.
“Individuals who identify as straight but in psychological tests show a strong attraction to the same sex may be threatened by gays and lesbians because homosexuals remind them of similar tendencies within themselves,” explains Netta Weinstein, a lecturer at the University of Essex and the study’s lead author.
“In many cases these are people who are at war with themselves and they are turning this internal conflict outward,” adds co-author Richard Ryan, professor of psychology at the University of Rochester who helped direct the research.
Four different experiments were used by researchers in the study, and the entire report from ScienceDaily is absolutely fascinating. Sure, it confirms what most of us have guessed all along, but it sure is nice see actual science back us up here.
This is hardly the first study of its kind. One of our biggest stories ever here at UB concerns a study which measured the sexual arousal of homophobes while they watch gay porn. You can guess the results for yourself.
Does all of this homophobes-are-secretly-gay science sound about right to you?
