I hate you... but I want you

News & Politics

"Four out of five became sexually aroused by the homoerotic imagery, as recorded by a plethysmograph ... a calibrated band fitted around the penis, which measures any enlargement." Who were these four out of five?
"[H]omophobic men who said they were exclusively heterosexual." This comes from a University of Georgia study, and I think it gets right at the essence of what total B.S. most psychological studies are: purportedly "scientific" enterprises loaded from start to finish with cultural premises and social biases. Like the very starting point -- a study to determine whether homophobes have homosexual feelings.

However, the result fits with a reality where I can sneer at the predicament that this puts the majority party in -- that either self-loathing closeted homosexual Republicans pass anti-gay legislation that hurts them or that openly anti-gay Republicans pass legislation against the people that turn them on.
