Abstract

The authors investigated the role of homosexual arousal in exclusively heterosexual men who admitted negative affect toward homosexual individuals.

Participants consisted of a group of homophobic men (n = 35) and a group of nonhomophobic men (n = 29); they were assigned to groups on the basis of their scores on the Index of Homophobia (W. W. Hudson & W. A. Ricketts, 1980).

The men were exposed to sexually explicit erotic stimuli consisting of heterosexual, male homosexual, and lesbian videotapes, and changes in penile circumference were monitored. They also completed an Aggression Questionnaire (A. H. Buss & M. Perry, 1992).

Both groups exhibited increases in penile circumference to the heterosexual and female homosexual videos. Only the homophobic men showed an increase in penile erection to male homosexual stimuli.

The groups did not differ in aggression. Homophobia is apparently associated with homosexual arousal that the homophobic individual is either unaware of or denies.

That doesn't surprise me in the least. Look at the biggest homophobes in Congress that end up either coming out or getting busted having the ghea sex. Not to mention the religious leaders speaking out against it, yet partaking behind the scenes.

How about all the other phobias? Would the same test/logic apply?

Mentioning Congressman is useless. Most of them are crooks and they have an understanding that if you get caught, all the other crooks will turn on you. Religious leaders are the same. Another issue with being judged on the content of your character not living up to what you would like.

As a group, gays have the same percentage of offensive idiots as any other group, but they have their own "race" card to play.

As an ex-sailor who has had his butt grabbed a few times in public restrooms (spent a bit of time in San Fran) I would be wary. On the other hand, never had my butt grabbed by a lesbian so I have no issue with them. I did have a lesbian that was going to beat the crap out of me in a bar one time because of political differences, but thank God I had a few friends with me.
