Proud to be a Filthy Liberal Scum

Loud, Proud and I don't care about hurting a conservative's feelings!

Shocker! Homophobes Are Closet Cases

ThinkProgress reports on a new study that links severe homophobia to repressed attraction to the same sex:

“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, 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,” says co-author Richard Ryan.

Another big shocker! The repression is usually a result of bad parenting:

Homophobia is more pronounced in individuals with an unacknowledged attraction to the same sex and who grew up with authoritarian parents who forbade such desires, a series of psychology studies demonstrates.

Social conservatism, it turns out, actually is a form of child abuse. Who knew? Oh wait! Liberals knew.

  1. As I’ve said to others, Santorum is so far back in the closet he’s got a mail box in Narnia.

    Precisely me point, dear boy! I’ve always maintained that Rick Santorum’s homophobia stems from his suppressed homosexuality. He should be called upon to come out of the closet!

    This whole thing is rather absurd, of course. In most cases, it is not a matter of hate or even dislike; it revolves around same-sex marriage. Some people are comfortable around gays and lesbians but prefer to defer to states’ rights, uphold tradition, and do not think it is a matter for courts but for legislatures.

    • There are no compelling or logical reasons to discriminate against same sex marriage except on religious grounds. That being the case, the law cannot take those concerns into consideration. And that’s pretty much the end of that.

        You changed the parameters of what I wrote. I wrote that a person can not be in favor of same-sex marriage and not be a “homophobe.” Please do not distort what I wrote.

        It is not necessarily a religious issue, either. It is also a states’ rights issue; let the states decide themselves. It is also an issue of tradition. It also stems from concerns over the “slippery slope” issue. There are many reasons a person would not be in favor of same-sex marriage and not be considered “phobic.”

        Once again, please do not change or distort my post. Thank you.
