Posted on 04/08/2012 3:20:59 PM PDT by EveningStar
Homophobia is more pronounced in individuals with an unacknowledged attraction to the same sex and who grew up with authoritarian parents who forbade such desires, a series of psychology studies demonstrates.

Sometimes true, but wrong more often than not.
That sounds logical.
Some of the obsessiveness about the issue from some of the posters here has made me wonder about them - particularly when they keep going out of their way to list all the homosexual practices that “horrify” them; or the ones consumed by fear that a homosexual will hit on them.
I don’t get where that much energy comes from.
I don’t like to eat dogs. But ALOT of Asians do. Does that make me have a phobia against Asians? I don’t spiders either.
Ask The Breck Girl.....didn’t he say something along these lines?
And some homophobia isn’t phobia at all. It’s just a knowledge of right and wrong.
I don’t remember it being an issue my parents had to address.
I think it has become an issue because media and television have made it popular. Not to mention our illustrious academia.
Neither do I.
Oh, no, not this sh!t again.
Seriously, the point is who cares if a bunch of blacks or red necks become homosexuals and turn to Islam in San Francisco to rot and die in their misery so they can call themselves liberals? In fact, someone so inclined to hate them would be so happy to say: “I love Islam and I love when losers practice homosexuality and hurt each other that way”.
THe thing is, so long they do not come around and impose their lives or their faces or derranged lifestyles on me, I am fine. But that never happens. It never happens because decadence requires constant subsidy of some sort to keep going. SO these people are always in your face eventualy.
I think they used to call this “latent homosexuality.” Essentially it occurs when a war is being fought between a person’s morals and his inclinations.
The human race would be wiped out!!
Same thing with abortion....
If you are a Christian, you have to live like a child. Would you want to be a child with 2 gay fathers?
That’s the energy. If that does not energize people that we are paying taxes and following expensive laws especially accomodating so that we be treated like their children and have to step in the gutter for them, yeah, that’s energy.
Now, maybe some would want apathy like the Jews going quietly to Dachau or something, because they are too PC to hate the “Energy” against the coming upon of death.
Sometimes I want to kill certain people.
I must be a killer.
I tend to refrain from the practice of killing though, so
I must be killphobic.
Those who would push this garbage need to find a new home on the net. “Homophobia” is a word made by godless liberals suffering “heterophobia.”
I wonder how much Evening Star's grandchildren and great-grand children are going to have pay for the money borrowed by the government to finance this important study.
Indeed, it’s easy to berate against people who do not like homosexuals when one has money and no problems. However the day the state becomes strong enough to impose its prefered lifestyles, these people will be the first to cry uncle and be like: “ and then they came for me but no one was there, so I had to become gay”
It’s not until you are truly defenseless that one can make true arguments, and if the Earth was completely gay, it would be a good way of starting to imagining it.
It's just another lib pushing perversion as acceptable behavior.
Just another attempt by the gay fascist crowd to push their moral code on this country just like the very European colonialists they say they hate.
They think they’re going to shove it down our throat, but they’re gonna find out the boot’s gonna stomp them into the ground.
Of course they are heterophobic. They know what they are doing is wrong but they have to live in denial or else they’d be at best looking real stupid, or, at worse, they would delve dangerously into their self hatred already existing and would commit suicide.
America has a real Kool Aid problem regarding homosexuality.
I just want gays to leave me alone.
Does that make me homophobic?
I don’t like the exhibitionist parades, on public streets. I can do without the schools indoctrinationg my kids - ever hear the term ‘love not gender’...your kids probably have, I would really be happy if we hadn’t had a multi-decade battle over gays in the military, to accomodate the few dozen who want to be openly gay in the military.
Must be because I’m secretly gay, though.
I hate these threads, what does that make me?
So that is my opinion and the opinion of someone close to me.
Exactly!! "Phobia" means fear. I doubt there are many in here who are fearful of homosexuals -- but there are many who do know the difference between right and wrong, safe and dangerous.
Or, it could be the fact that homosexuals are after our children.
Indeed, this is all about “communist electioneering”, ie. the endless campaigning of Obama is a in fact an extention of the endless communist campaign for a communist presidency using and living a communist language.
The way they brought Fluke out of the woodwork to get the emotional woman vote to swing against the GOP and in favor of Obama is exactly that.
When they start talking about homophobia, it is a “movement”, ie. an active measure of campaigning to divide, conquer and “Win” people by fear, blackmail and embarassment. This is cultural electoral campaigning for communist causes.
Oh just great. Now we gotta worry about homophobia-phobia.
I have never seen a single Freeper "consumed by fear" that a homosexual would make a pass at them. Disgusted at the prospect---sure. Understandably so. But frightened? That makes no more sense than the word "homophobia" does.
Thay fella......you know the thuper theecret handthake?
I'm not afraid of homosexuals, I'm just repulsed by their "life style" and all of the waste homosexuality entails.
I have a homosexual Brother who thinks of nothing else but homosexuality and his "community". He is impossible to be around and as far as the family tree goes, he could care less, since he is never going to have kids. I worry about him because his "community" experiences 43 times higher STD rates than the normals do but that doesn't slow down the rampant promiscuity. It's a mental disease and it's a cultural wrecking ball until we can finally find a cure.
This claptrap by the good doctor is yet another bogus argument meant to try make all of us with normal inclinations begin to doubt ourselves>
To my knowledge, for all of the billions of people and trillions of dollars across the galaxy that has been spent on studies invoking the word "homophobia," exactly NONE of them have EVER specified the difference between it and healthy, normal, heterosexuality as defined by a complete and total non-interest and specific aversion to homosexual attraction.
And until that is done (and you know it never will be), ALL of the "studies" that use the undefined, slanderously accusatory and totally unscientific word "homophobia" are crap.
I think that if we have the homosexual acts shoved in our faces long enough, we all become imune to the disgust and horror, just as our marines got used to walking on dead and dismembered bodies throught the Pacific Islands in WWII.
Any other questions about homosexuality and how we are supposed to celebrate it?
Homophobia is a distorted term... but in the way that gays and lesbians use the term... it is a moral sanity.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
The above citation should be alarm enough. Homosexuality is a relic of barbarism, just like polygamy and slavery; the motives of people seeking to excuse it should be suspect. Those would advocate it are serving their communist masters in order to destroy American society.
“I hate these threads, what does that make me?”
Im with you .., If Free Republic becoming a gay forum? Sure starting to seem that way..
if so ... Im out of here....

Some (I’d wager the vast majority) of us guys just find the practice repulsive—period. The Left, and Hollywood, has gone out of its way to paint people who despise homosexuality as closet homosexuals. I think this may apply to a very (very) small percentage, but that’s it. One could make the same implication about radical Homosexual activists who seem to hate straight people.
I know a few homosexuals and have no problem interacting with them. Almost all are intelligent, charming individuals. But what I don’t want to do (ever) is hear them talk about Gay sex topics or hit on me. That is out of bounds.
Homophobia is very very rare..
However; Normalphobia by gays are very common..
Some gays love men that act like women and some like men to act like men..
No man can become a women but many act like women.. its an act..
Gays are very queer, thats why they are called Queers..
if so ... Im out of here....
Hope the door slams you in the a@@ on your way out.
Is Some Homophilia Self-philia?
All of it.
Cracks me up that encouraging an inability to love ‘others’ is touted as a way of encouraging diversity.
Exactly. Almost 100 percent of the time, “homophobia” is simple revulsion.
Psychology is the biggest form of witchcraft in America. It pretends to be a science. Garbage studies like these are just more evidence of how easy it is to get the desired result without really trying.
Those crazy comm-o-phobes of the 60s and 70s had the same problem. Reagan, Nixon, Goldwater and all their supporters... sheesh they would never shut up about communists. Not sure where they got all the energy. They must have all been secretly communists. Glad that's all over with. Hope this homo stuff ends the same way.
When we were kids, when a guy - even a straight guy - exhibited less-than-manly characteristics, he was called a faggot. The term homophobia was the Left’s ingenious way of turning this phenomenon on itself. No real man gets afraid... so you better like gays!
