This information is out there. It seems to be true and it is something I have suspected for a long time but I am wondering what others feel about this
daring and enlightening...proclamation. Shakespeare said something about he who protests too much
and this is often a giveaway
unsettled feelings and emotions people are unable to face.
Sometimes, though not of course always,
anger issues are the result of an underlying personal failure. Something we cannot come to grips with.
Something that should be different than it is
and so presents a conflict, nagging and unresolved. If a man happens to harbor some love of
their fellow man, that turns unexpectedly physical, and homosexuality is so strictly forbidden it cannot even enter the realm of possibility,
that mans psyche and sense of self is stuck between a rock and a hard place.
It seems to me these men and some women are lashing out with hatred (for all appearances) AT HOMOSEXUALS, when underlying this is a real misery and
disappointment, a hatred for the lack of acceptance of homosexuality for his own life and among his sphere of (usually also homophobic) acquaintances.
This seems like an elaborate ruse, a theatrical show of bravado, meticulously contrived to promote the "I'm a HE MAN" image that heterosexuals
don't feel compelled to prove, display or show.
Everything he/she (no pun intended) has learned, forbids him from being who he or she is.
There are NO ACCEPTABLE CHOICES. Deny self or deny others, and this creates a dilemma for the brain.
With deep seated resentment he hates the gays in the world who are allowed to be who they are while he cannot. This is how it seems and it appears
from these studies this is how it is.
Some of this material was presented in this ATS thread previously including the results of the study appearing in the August 1996 issue of the Journal

Is homophobia associated with homosexual arousal?
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
Are homophobes really gay? Scientific study
The study involved twenty-nine nonhomophobic men and thirty-five homophobic men...All sixty-four men described themselves as completely straight.
Each man was shown three kinds of videotapes: heterosexual, male homosexual, and lesbian. ...here's where it gets interesting. While watching the
male homosexual videos, the homophobic men were more than twice as likely to be aroused as the nonhomophobic men -- 54 to 24
Fear of Homosexuals
WASHINGTON -- Psychoanalytic theory holds that homophobia -- the fear, anxiety, anger, discomfort and aversion that some ostensibly heterosexual
people hold for gay individuals -- is the result of repressed homosexual urges that the person is either unaware of or denies. A study appearing in
the August 1996 issue of the Journal of Abnormal Psychology, published by the American Psychological Association (APA), provides new empirical
evidence that is consistent with that theory. ematusov.soe.udel.edu...
