Re: Study: Homophobia is linked to gay desires.

This is not the first time researchers have found this.

The first time I heard about a similar finding (a study found that those with homophobic tendencies showed greater physiological arousal when shown pictures of men) was more than 12 years ago.

The researchers in the study I mentioned conducted the experiment to verify one of Freud's defence mechanisms, but I forget which one.
