Stacy McCain, who is neither a scientist, nor a Lesbian posts about some science that has piqued his interest.
Denial can be a powerful defense mechanism. Apparently, homophobia is too — at least according to a new study from researchers from the University of Rochester, the University of Essex, England, and the University of California in Santa Barbara.
Their research concluded that the intense fear and repulsion college-age homophobes feel toward gays and lesbians is likely due to the fact that they see similarities in themselves.
“Individuals who identify as straight but in psychological tests show a strong attraction to the same sex may be threatened by gays and lesbians because homosexuals remind them of similar tendencies within themselves,” said lead author Netta Weinstein of the University of Essex, according to Science Daily.
Interesting, of course it is true that some people do over compensate.Your anti-porn zealot who secretly plays choke the chicken in front of their PC every night. Or the prohibitionist who battles against alcoholism. Of course,this study might be outcome based , so who knows how accurate it is. But, I am very interested to find that Stacy McCain is interested in a scientific study that has lots of merit.
For many years, I’ve been working on a scientific study to confirm my hypothesis that some lesbians — the really hot ones — are in fact secretly bisexual and eager to have me join them for a threesome.
Now THAT is science I would love to delve into! Strictly for the science of course. Because science is important!
