Psychology Today published a study that re-enforces the adage that those protesting the loudest are often hiding their own issues when they wrote about arousal levels experienced by homophobes vs. non-homophobes when watching gay porn. The study asked a group of heterosexual men questions concerning their feelings towards homosexuality to determine which would be considered homophobes (a few in our local blogosphere come to mind) and then had each group watch several clips depicting various heterosexual and gay/lesbian sex acts.
The results were quite telling and i’ll let you read the article yourself for the details but the bottom line was:
Homophobic men were the most sexually aroused by gay male sex acts.
No wonder they support “Don’t ask don’t tell”…
