Abstract

  1. The authors investigated the role of homosexual arousal in exclusively heterosexual men who admitted negative affect toward homosexual individuals. Participants consisted of a group of homophobic men ( n  = 35 ) and a group of nonhomophobic men ( n  = 29); they were assigned to groups on the basis of their scores on the Index of Homophobia (W. W. Hudson & W. A. Ricketts, 1980). The men were exposed to sexually explicit erotic stimuli consisting of heterosexual, male homosexual, and lesbian videotapes, and changes in penile circumference were monitored. They also completed an Aggression Questionnaire (A. H. Buss & M. Perry, 1992). Both groups exhibited increases in penile circumference to the heterosexual and female homosexual videos. Only the homophobic men showed an increase in penile erection to male homosexual stimuli. The groups did not differ in aggression. Homophobia is apparently associated with homosexual arousal that the homophobic individual is either unaware of or denies. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)

It seems and feels like all Republics turn to empires.

I sm absolutely unsurprised. It goes back to "Methinks the lady doth protest too much."
I really think the most hateful and violent people who hate the gays are really angry at themselves for being a peter pumper. They punish those who are strong enough to come out of the closet and shout that the violence perpetrated is just a lesson to keep all of those child molesting deals away from the decent people.
Because it is much better to have your child witness the brutality and hated involved with a hate crime than to allow them to be eternally corrupted by the sight of two men holding hands in a grocery store. I have met very few homophobes who didn't kick off my gay-dar. This way, they don't lose their friends, family, and the life they lead as gay haters as long as they remember to sucker punch a she-male every week or so.
And don't dare look in the porn drawer to see what really turns them on, it could blow your mind and cost your own group of friends for it.
