Are Homophobes Just Repressing Their Homosexual Desires? New Study Says Yes

It's long been a maxim that the most extreme homophobes are simply acting out to cover up their same-sex desires, but only now has a scientific study come out with proof. A new joint study conducted by the University of England in Essex and the University of California in Santa Barbara will show how homophobia can be a fearful symptom of same-sex desire. The psychology is deep. Raw Story:

"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," the study's lead author, Netta Weinstein, explained.

"In many cases these are people who are at war with themselves and they are turning this internal conflict outward," co-author Richard Ryan added.

"We laugh at or make fun of such blatant hypocrisy, but in a real way, these people may often themselves be victims of repression and experience exaggerated feelings of threat," Ryan said. "Homophobia is not a laughing matter. It can sometimes have tragic consequences."

The study will be published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology in April. Here's a video Raw Story found from the University of Rochester, which features Professor Richard Ryan discussing this very issue, mentioning that repressed-homosexual homophobics are more likely to come from authoritarian homes. He also discusses a methodology as to how a study like this could even be conducted. Fascinating.

Why is this in Politics & Religion?

It has nothing to do with either. Send it to Off Topic. It might add a little frisson of excitement there for a Monday.

Homosexuality in this country is a controversial, politically and religiously charged topic.

Homosexuality in this country is a controversial, politically and religiously charged topic.

And the source article mentions neither - no links, no commentary, nothing.

What about liberals that are anally obsessed with homosexuals and homosexual issues and habitually post pro-homosexual topics? ;)


"Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence: Those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave."

"...for the system to be credible, people actually have to be deported at the end of the process."

US Congresswoman Barbara Jordan (D-TX)

Testimony to the House Immigration Subcommittee, February 24, 1995

I was hoping that the resident VJ homophobes would have added more input on the subject.

Whats left to say, People who have an unreasonable fear of homosexuality are in fact **-sexual them self..... it's rather sad commentary.

You'll have to ask The God for more input. She made the liberals (also) so She needs to answer your questions, soonish.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
