NewsFlash: Many Homophobes Are Self Loathing Closet Cases

Via Huffington Post: George Alan Rekers,
a prominent anti-gay activist was caught with a male escort he
found on Rentboy.com, which is exactly what it sounds like.
I'm shocked I tell you...shocked by this study...not!


From Psychology Today:

...Sigmund Freud, theorized that people often have the most hateful and negative attitudes towards things they secretly crave, but feel that they shouldn't have.
If Freud is right, then perhaps men who are the most opposed to male homosexuality have particularly strong  homosexual urges for other men....

In this study, they attached a device that measures arousal of the penis to each participant and showed them gay porn....guess what happened?  

...Heterosexual men with the most anti-gay attitudes, when asked, reported not being sexually aroused by gay male sex videos. But, their penises reported otherwise.

Homophobic men were the most sexually aroused by gay male sex acts.

I guess you can say that gay men can be their own worst enemies.  Then again, if our society wasn't so homophobic, these closet cases wouldn't be so self loathing.  It truly is a vicious circle!
