Study: Homophobes Aroused by Gay Porn

Methinks the lady doth protest too much... and that the gay basher does too: Research by a Univ of GA psychologist suggests that 80% of men who are homophobic have secret homosexual feelings. The research results were published in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology, w/the backing of the Amer Psychological Assoc. This finding lends scientific support to the long-standing speculation that those who shout the loudest against homosexuality have something to hide. In tests conducted by Prof. Henry Adams of the Univ of GA, homophobic men who said they were exclusively heterosexual were shown gay sex videos. 4 out of 5 became sexually aroused by the homoerotic imagery, as recorded by a plethysmograph . . . a calibrated band fitted around the penis, which measures any enlargement. Adams says his research shows that most homophobes "demonstrate significant sexual arousal to homosexual erotic stimuli" suggesting that homophobia is a form of "latent homosexuality where persons are either unaware of -or deny- their homosexual urges." Hmm, what does this say about all of those anti-gay reverends, preachers & Repub politicians?
