(Psychological Sciences) Some homophobes are hidden homosexuals.

Debate Information

There is actually quite a lot of research on this but here is just some quick links to mull over:

So, it is sometimes true that the reason why some people have antipathy toward homosexuals is because they are homosexuals themselves. And they hate and are unable to accept who they are. And the more extreme aversion they have and more they continue to express this hate the more than likely they are hidden homosexuals. Of course, this isn't a reflection of all homophobes; but it still does represent a numerous sample of people.

What's more, is that they are going to be even more ashamed and angry with themselves if they were bought up in religious backgrounds and with very authoritarian parents/guardians. And all of this does get reflected in their actions and then their words.

Sometimes the only way for some people to accept homosexuals is by first coming to terms with their own sexuality.

    Weird... It's almost like by creating a culture of non-acceptance and demanding conformity leads to all sorts of psychological distress that can permanently ruin a child's self-confidence just for the purpose of appealing to traditional or religious values.

    Seems these parents and institutions care more for having their way than actually doing what is in the best interests of those involved.
    At some point in the distant past, the universe went through a phase of cosmic inflation,
    Stars formed, planets coalesced, and on at least one of them life took root.
    Through a long process of evolution this life 
    developed into the human race.
    Humans conquered fire, built complex societies and advanced technology .

    All of that so we can argue about nothing.

    So, are you successful at trying to change? How does that work for you?

  • Some homophobes are homosexuals that know they need to change. So what?  ZeusAres42

    Change what exactly? Should they change from being homophobe and accept themselves and others that are homosexuals? Or are you suggesting that someone try and change how they were born?


  • Is that a serious question? Change to acting normal of course! Birth defects are no excuse for deranged behavior...keep it in the closet. ZeusAres42

    So you think there is something that went wrong with you at birth for being homosexual?


  • That or post-birth trauma.
    I don't know why you would be so hard on yourself to think these about you just for being homosexual @David_Nichols


  • Talk about the issues, not me. ZeusAres42

    I am talking homophobes being hidden homosexuals who express antipathy toward other homosexuals. And since you match the pscyhological profile of someone like this you are indeed relevant to this debate. @David_Nichols


  • You don't need my information, doofus. ZeusAres42

    That's right. I don't need your info. You tell me all I need to know by your posts.


  • You can deny it all you want but you are a homosexual that cannot accept who he is. You probably don't have and probably never had a girlfriend or wife. You are angry and ashamed with who you are.

    Why don't you disappear, dink? I need someone to smash in a debate.ZeusAres42
    First, try coming to terms with who you are. Your defensiveness speaks volumes.
