[Allegedly] Homohobic people “more likely to display other undesirable psychological traits”

Not surprisingly a new study has just come out of Italy claiming that people who “harbor homophobic attitudes” suffer from a psychological disorder — a phobia.  So now liberals can point to a  scientific study that supposedly shows that people who believe homosexuality is a sexual perversion, such as Bible believers, are “homophobic,” as if opponents have an irrational fear of homosexuals.  According to the study, homophobia is a “culture-induced disease.”

Woe to those of us who happen to disagree with pro-homos on this highly charged issue, as we’re labeled the “h” word —  homophobe.  But they don’t stop there.  We’re also called bigots, haters, mean spirited and far worse.  By now most people are aware that if liberals can’t win an argument they’ll mock, marginalize and demonize the person who disagrees with them.  So watch your back!

Following is the aforementioned study, which you’ll have to hold your nose and read.

Levels of aggression, physical hostility and anger can be found at a higher concentration in individuals who express homophobic attitudes, new research by the University of Rome suggests

Individuals with homophobic views are more likely to display undesirable psychological traits such as aggression, physical hostility and anger, a new study finds.

The research, published last week in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, was led by Professor Emmanuele Jannini of the University of Rome, and titled “Psychoticism, Immature Defense Mechanisms and a Fearful Attachment Style are Associated with a Higher Homophobic Attitude”.

Jannini found that those who harbour homophobic attitudes are often encumbered with deficient coping mechanisms, and that their averse reaction to same-sex couplings may be a direct result of their own gender confusion.

The report concludes with the observation that whilst some homophobes may in fact be “hidden homosexuals”, there are many other factors that may contribute to homophobia – an attitude that Jannini considers a “culture-induced disease”. These additional contributing factors include religiosity, sensitivity to disgust, hypermasculinity and misogyny.  Continue reading

Hmm. I’d say they’re doing some serious stereotyping. I’ve met some sweet old ladies in assisted living facilities that are anti-gay agenda. They don’t seem to have those violent tendancies.

Get me off this crazy merry-go-round!

” undesirable psychological traits such as aggression, physical hostility and anger”

” undesirable psychological traits such as aggression, physical hostility and anger”

Which are very good things under appropriate circumstances, but apparently Professor Emmanuele Douchebag (oops, I guess that represents “hostility” and “anger”) would prefer that heterosexual males be reduced to Eloi, those large-eyed, elflike beings who wear fey garments, eat only fruit, sleep in crumbling stone halls built by some previous civilization, and sleep on piles of silk throw pillows and make playful love on grassy knolls, except of course when they’re being eaten by Morlocks, though fortunately the Eloi do not display aggression, hostility or anger while being dined on, sort of like Schmoos.

Yes, Professor Douchebag’s perfect universe would have we heterosexual males emulating Elois and Schmoos.
