For much of this century, homosexuality was defined by the medical and scientific community as a psychiatric disorder. In the last several decades, however, "homosexuality" has been removed from the diagnostic manual of disorders, and research emphasis has shifted to the other side of the problem: the study of the negative, sometimes pathological, reactions to homosexuals by heterosexuals.
The term "homophobia" has gained currency as a one-word summary of this widespread problem. Since the early 1980's, scientists attempting to measure homophobia have developed a number of different homophobia scales and questionnaires.

In 1996, as part of his study on homophobia, Dr. Henry Adams and his colleagues at the University of Georgia developed their own "Homophobia Scale" by modifying scales used by other researchers in earlier studies. It's a 25-item questionnaire "designed to measure your thoughts, feelings and behaviors with regards to homosexuality." The instructions stressed: "It is not a test, so there are no right or wrong answers."

Take the test!

www.pbs.org...

26 - Your score rates you as "non-homophobic."
Wow! I answered every question honestly. I guess my answers to the political questions knocked me down from "high grade non-homophobic" to plain old "non-homophobic".

So, from now on, the next time someone labels me a "homophobe" for being opposed to gay marriage, I will provide a link to this thread and ask that the person change the label to "non-homophobic".

Thats the problem with homosexuality. They turn the issue around on others. While they are the ones that are sick. They make others believe the ones who realize the truth and arent too politically correct to admit it are the ones who are sick. A phobia is a type of disorder. Nobody is a homophobe. Some people are just not afraid to say, hey I dont like that. I guess I am a "childmolesterphobe" too. I mean look at NAMBLA. (North American Man Boy Love Association) These people are making a political agenda out of their messed up and disgusting lifestyle just like gay people are. We classify people as sexual deviants who are rapist's and child molesters. A man actually is sexually attracted to young boys. We call him sick. What is the difference????? Our biological body parts are DESIGNED AND MEANT for use with people of THE OPPOSITE SEX. That is how HUMANS ARE DESIGNED. I am not afraid of gay people. I know a gay person. I talk to him on a daily basis while at work. We get along fine. That does not mean that he doesnt have a problem.

I want to clear some things up before everyone gets on my case. First off, I do not care what gay people do. If they want to be gay its there problem, and not mine. My whole issue with this subject is people would try to make me out to be a bad guy for saying it is not normal.

Lets get scientific. We dont have to know too much about biology to figure this out. The penis is meant to go into the vagina. That is how we are biologicaly built. There can be no doubt that humans are genetically structured that way. When someone goes against that, it is their choice. That does not mean they are normal. Or that they are using their biological parts for what they are intended for.

I will not stand around and be forced to say that it is peachy keen. The fact of the matter is that it is a free country and everyone can do what they want. This includes me thinking that there are mental issues associated in some way with being gay. I would never go and harass someone for being gay. Dont harass me by saying I have a disorder (homophobia). I am only being logical.

To me its no big deal. It really is none of my business what goes on in folks bedrooms.
I think that any way you look at it their will always be controversy surrounding homosexuals. Its different and unusual. Most people are just scared I think .

There is no such thing as homophobia. Just people who have a freaking brain. Let's say we ALL become gay, just for the hell of it ... Who's gunna populate this planet? Can men have babie's out of there azzes? No ... Man and women were made for EACHOTHER ... Not man and man or woman and woman. I have more of a problem with man/man gay's thean women, simply because women already have a natural bond to eachother that men simply do NOT have under normal circumstances. I think being gay is a choice. One THEY decided to come up with. No man can turn down a warm wet ... you know ... NO MAN. UNLESS, he is sick or has sum sort of psychological problem. Our brain's were wired to the opposite sex, not a dirty dry smelly bunghole ... queers =P

Take a test to determine what my beliefs are?

I need no test to know that a sin is wrong, that the counterculture forces are trying to make wrong right and those who believe in the real right to be considered wrong.

I have no problem with someone who is a homosexual, I have my own sins to deal with, thank you very much. My beef is with those who expect me to embrace the perverted lifestyle as normal and want to attack traditional culture.

We are getting to be like Sodom and Gomorrah. We worship ourselves above all else, we pursue whatever kind of physical pleasure we can think of.

I have just taken the test.

I have scored badly, 60 and I knew beforehand that I am Homophobic. Things that upset me are that I am not prejudice to employing someone gay, but really would be upset me if I thought I was being eyed up.

After reading a quote from Thomas Crowne above, I feel its wrong to judge gay as a sin. You are a mere man, capable of mistakes on many levels. Only God himself judges sin. Gay people could be here just so you make that very mistake to judge and condemn, equally a sin. That may your lesson in life, to live and let live.

The thought of a homosexual act personally sickens me but to condemn someone for their acts especially if in a mutual loving relationship is wrong, it would be no different for me to make porn video's of me and my wife and show them to people who are not interested. You would judge me as weird, sick, perverted maybe. Where do you draw the line and who gave anyone that right. The fact is, as long as you do not force your views and opinions on others everyone is equal and should be left alone

We are all entitled to a view but to judge, condemn and victimise is also a sin.

We should learn to forgive, accept tolerate and maybe then, the world would be a better place.

Just read my post again.
Sorry for my previous post, it sounded like it was directed at you. It was a general view on the topic of homosexuality being a sin. The rest of your post I agreed with.

There is no such thing as a homophobe. Here it goes again with someone classifying someone else as sick for not agreeing with them.

Here are some questions for you to answer eathnoise,

1. Is the penis of a male intended biologically for homosexual use. Or is it intended for the use in conjunction with the vagina for reproduction.

2. Explain the difference between an adult male who really likes young children, and an adult who likes someone of the opposite sex.

Your free to go on these because I am sure you will chime in. We should treat homosexuality like any other mental illness. If you dont want treatment that is fine. Do not force your homosexual ideals down my throat, force our children to accept it, and make it a political agenda when it should be an agenda of your psychiatrist.

This quesetion is for everyone in here who is not gay.

Do you find it repulsive to sleep with someone of the same sex?

Now that question is directed towards straight people. The ones who actually use their body parts as they were intended.

Homosexuality isn't a mental illness, gay people aren't 'sick', they were just born finding the same sex attrative. I certaintly would never sleep with someone of the same sex, but I can accept why gay people do. They don't deserved to be locked up as you suggest.

I also scored "Non Homophobic" though, like T.C., I needed no test... I will not go so far as to judge them but I will NOT support gay marriage, adoption of children or any other specific legal rights based on abnormal behavior.

If a guy likes to screw around with farm animals should he be allowed to force his employer to pay for vet insurance on his goat? HELL NO!

Should the state and federal government give him a tax break for being "married"? HELL NO!

The bottom line here is this issue is all about SCREWING. There is NO VALUE ADDED TO SOCIETY by these types of relationships, in plainer terms, they PRODUCE NO CHILDREN to carry on the human struggle and build the community's future.

The WHOLE point of human sexual relations is to procreate and secure the future of humanity. The Pleasure is a positive BY-PRODUCT that is designed to make you WANT to reproduce, it is NOT the PURPOSE.

That being said, like all other facets of personal life it is NONE OF MY BUSINESS what anyone wants to do as long as they don't ask me to pay for it and it doesn't hurt society or anyone else.

I don't care on whit if Bruce and Bob want to play house in pink miniskirts and chase eachother around the bedroom. I would hire either one of them if they were the best candidate for the job, I would have a beer with them after work if they were enjoyable company, I WON'T pay for Bob's healthcare as though he was Bruce's wife because he ISN'T Bruce's wife. He's Bruce's #buddy THAT'S ALL he is.

PEACE...

Well I never said they should be locked up. You are putting words into my mouth. I said that I dont care what they do. But noone has the right to tell me I should think it is ok. And as far as them not being sick. They have a disorder. Much like a compulsive disorder where you wash your hands repeatedly. They do things that are not natural because of a problem. If it is in there genes, it must be a genetic disorder, for as we all know, gay people cannot reproduce.

Now this is all my opinion. But why dont you answer my question from above. Is someone "sick " when they have sex with young children? Come on now chud...answer it........ or is it going to disagree with what you said?

I scored 7 (high-grade non-homophobic.).

I have no reason at all to be homophobic... so i'm not.
The reason I scored 7 and not lower was probably because I somewhat agreed that I make jokes about gay people... I do, but only for fun, and I always make sure people I'm around knows that I'm not serious.

Definately well put Springer.

53 - Your score rates you as "homophobic."

Look. I dont midn gays...They can do whatever they want..as long as they dont try hitting on me. Though in public if I see 2 guys kissing that would fully disgust me. I find it disgusting. 2 Girls kissing aint that bad but i still find it a little disgusting. Man and woman kissing is fine with me.
Why? Coz it just is, that is the way i am.
