A rehashed 2012 study claims that if a person has distaste for homosexuals or does not strongly support them then they are probably secretly gay themselves.A Jewish lecturer and psychologist Netta Weinstein conducted a study in which she concluded, “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, unrealised desires they themselves harbor.”
Weinstein’s co-author of the study Richard Ryan, a professor of psychology at the University of Rochester adds, “The findings provide new empirical evidence to support the psychoanalytic theory that the fear, anxiety, and aversion that some seemingly heterosexual people hold toward gays and lesbians can grow out of their own repressed same-sex desires.”
In other words, liberal academics have found a more intelligent-sounding way to upgrade that old school yard taunt, “I know you are but what am I?”
This is one of the oldest claims of the rainbow crowd; to dismiss other people’s views on homosexuality, gay marriage and gay parenting by claiming that anyone who isn’t on their side is just ashamed of their own secret gayness. The problem with this argument is that it does not hold up to logic. If people secretly love the things they hate, does that mean that someone who hates pedophiles and wants to see them go to jail for life is secretly a pedophile themselves? Does a Jew who hates Nazis secretly have anSS uniform hiding in his closet because deep down he really wants to be a Nazi? If you hate the taste of celery does that mean you secretly love it?
The fact is not everyone cares for it when homosexuals flaunt their sexuality in ways that are overt or disrespectful to others. Not everyone cares to see this on their streets:
