HEY HOMOPHOBES! YOU'RE GAY!

New York Magazine published a an awesome article about the "gayest month in sports," following a year of pro-gay ads and anti-gay bullying endorsements by some high profile players and sports pundits like Charles Barkeley, sometimes in direct response to the homophobic actions on the part of other well-known athletes and agents. The main reason most franchises and sports organizations are going "pro gay" is that it makes sense from a business perspective as a younger generation of non-homophobes become a target for leisure dollars.
But the article begs-no, demands the question-when will a major male player come out? And what don't publicly homophobic athletes, agents and sports pundits know about recent studies on homophobia? Psychology Today has published a recent study that demonstrates individuals with the greatest amount of homosexual desire are those who display the great amount of homophobia. So, for all you sports stars out there dead set on staying in the closet, you might want to cut back on the public displays of homo-hatred and jump on the anti-gay bullying band wagon or some of us will start to wonder what you're up to in the locker room when you're not busy calling other people a "fucking faggot."




Psychology Today reports:
"One study asked heterosexal men how comfortable and anxious they are around gay men. Based on these scores, they then divided these men into two groups: men that are homophobic, and men who are not. These men were then shown three, four minute videos. One video depicted straight sex, one depicted lesbian sex and one depicted gay male sex. While this was happening, a device was attached to the male participant’s penises. This device has been found to be triggered by sexual arousal, but not other types of arousal (such as nervousness, or fear – arousal often has a very different meaning in psychology than in popular usage).

When viewing lesbian sex and straight sex, both the homophobic and the non-homophobic men showed increased penis circumference. For gay male sex, however, only the homophobic men showed heightened penis arousal.

Heterosexual men with the most anti-gay attitudes, when asked, reported not being sexually aroused by gay male sex videos. But, their penises reported otherwise.

Homophobic men were the most sexually aroused by gay male sex acts."

  1. LOL. How do you get a self professed homophobe to participate in a study that puts a probe on his cock and forces him to watch gay porn? Very curious. LOL.
