Remember to check all your sources, kids: The more homophobic someone is the more likely they are trying to keep their innermost attractions for the same sex secret. Studies have shown this, politicians have shown it by being anti-gay but found out they are gay over and over. .SO..every time I hear someone spouting anti-gay rhetoric I know what they are trying to hide. Reply -30 I did hear about a serial killer who killed his victims after having sex with them in the hopes of killing the proof that he's gay. Of course barring that, people can be homophobic just because they're bigots, in fact, I'd say that's the most common form of homophobia https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/the-sexual-continuum/201204/are-homophobic-people-really-gay-and-not-accepting-it "To explore participants' explicit and implicit sexual attraction, the researchers measured the differences between what people say about their sexual orientation and how they react during a split-second timed task." -Psychology Today This is an implicit association test, it's measured by how quickly someone can make certain associations sub-consiously, it's commonly used as a measure of unconcious bias, (racism, sexism, transphobia, etc) but creators of the implicit association test don't believe it's foolproof, and an analysis of its test-retest value gave it a score of about 6/10, with the minimum for accurate results being 8/10. These concerns are even mentioned in the article. Neither the article nor the paper claim they found that homophobic people have unexplored sexual attraction to their same gender, they actually say the opposite, that people with unexplored sexual attraction to the same gender are more homophobic, people who are homophobic because of bigoted beliefs is a variable that has been controlled to zero in this study. https://www.indy100.com/article/homophobia-gay-homosexual-closet-science-self-loathing-study-data-50-years-decriminalisation -7788016 https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/homophobes-might-be-hidden-homosexuals/ Your first new source sites the very same study as your old, the only difference being it made the same mistake you did before, claiming that the study finds high rates of unexplored homosexual desires in homophobic people, instead of vice versa Your second new source also made the same mistake and even disproved your claim - if not completely contradicted itself - later on: "[Richard] Ryan cautioned, however, that this link is only one source of anti-gay sentiments."
