My experience suggests that in nearly every case ,people who are aggresively homophobic are just heavily suppresing their own homosexual desires .

I disagree with this, at least in most cases. I think that people who stand against homosexuality is not much different than a Christian who stand against other religions (not singling out Christians or anything), or a patriotic citizen who irrationally thinks negatively of another country. For whatever reason, its difficult for many to accept other people's differences.

Actually most people who are openly "against" homosexuality are repressed homosexuals.

In fact, most of this debate stems from people who have homosexual urges and feel intense shame because they have been convinced that it is wrong by their surroundings.

They direct this shame outwards in the form of hate.

Gore Vidal discusses a 1996 study on homophobia, which revealed that homophobic males were aroused by gay porn, while non-homophobes were not.

New research by U.S. psychologists suggests that 80 percent of men who are homophobic have secret homosexual feelings.

One theory that's been presented is that homosexuality is a natural safeguard against overpopulation. When a sort of critical mass is reached, the "Gay gene" if we can call it that, is triggered, thereby encouraging the population level to become more managible.

In the animal population there are frogs who change their sex according to what is needed for the group. If the group needs females they become egg layers and if the group needs males they become transgenders in the truest sense of the word - They become males.

There is another thread on homosexuality going now. I was sure the topic was covered already but there are some intersting insights and comments here. Mind you they are not all "pearls."

quote from bill hicks

"My final point about alchohol, about drugs, about Pornography...What business is it of your's what I do, read, buy, see or take into my body as long as I don't harm another human being whilst on this planet? And for those of you having a little moral dilemna on how to answer this, I'll answer for you. NONE OF YOUR F*CKING BUSINESS Take that to the bank, cash it and take it on a vacation outta my f*cking life. And stop bringing shotguns to UFO sightings, they might be here to pick me up and take me with 'em."

common sense always wins?
