I am studying psychology and I saw a study which said that the reason that some people are homophobics is because they have repressed homosexual tendancies.

What would people on the board think about this?

interesting i think

i mean, it could be because people are homosexual but scared of it because society is against homosexuals. so they hate homosexuality and everything to do with it?

edit: i just saw, what i said is just like what it says in the article i think

it depends what you take to be homophobia i suppose. there are those people who id say are homophobes those who protest at gay rights and are generally unpleasant - who might possibly have tendancies. and there are ordinary people like me who dont agree with homosexuality and find it pretty distasteful but can get along with people regardless. i dont think this qualifies me for being homosexual in any way.

where i *** from every man h8s gays cos its just wrong......its not cos were all homos its just cos homosexuality is disgustin.

btw the few ppl who did becum gay at my skool were all ugly fukers who had neva had a girl be4...once they became gay there were smashin guys all the time - its just a case of needs must i reckon.

also no otha species has gay animals as they are geared 4 survival - provin the point that homosexuality is a result of situation not ne lame excuse like genes.

The study said that:

33% of straight males have homosexual tendancies (i.e got an erection while watching the male porn)

80% of the homophobes got aroused.

So (if the results can be generalised) a third of men who think they are straight are actually gay. I think they repeated it with women and I think they got pretty much the same responce.

How can you compare a gay person to someone 'who wants to have sex with children'???

perhaps, i guess it all depends on the statistics of the study. either way it does seem like a big generalization, my point being those who are not attracted to homosexuality or its acts shouldnt always be labled homophobes, nor would they be statistically any "more gay" than anyone else
