Study Finds Guys Who Hate Gay Dudes Also Sort Of Kinda Happen To Really Like Looking At Pictures Of Gay Dudes

They say a lot of hatred towards gays is often repressed loathing towards one’s own desires (source: a paraphrasing of something I think I once heard), so this really makes a lot of sense.

A new study out of the University of Geneva found that the kind of guys who very vocally and vociferously denounce homosexuality really like looking at pictures of dudes making out.

Hmmmm. Hmmmmm.

From Psy Post:

Some male college students who have negative attitudes towards gay men show an unconscious bias in favor of homosexual imagery, according to new research.

The findings, published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, suggests there can be a discrepancy between unconscious, impulsive attractions and conscious, reflective attitudes about sexuality. Some men who hold negative attitudes about gay people show a higher interest in homosexual activities than their less anti-gay counterparts, according to the study.

The study tracked the eye movements of 38 students as they were shown homosexual and heterosexual stimuli (science for gay and straight pics). Low and behold, the guys who tested high for having negative attitudes today gay people couldn’t stop looking at them.

Now, it could be that the pictures just enrage them so much that they can’t stop repulsively staring at them, but … let’s be fucking real.

Boris Cheval of the University of Geneva in Switzerland, the lead author of the study, told PsyPost it is currently hard to tell how big of a role suppressed attraction toward same-sex individuals plays in the formation of anti-gay attitudes. He noted that a previous study found about half of anti-gay men became sexually aroused — as measured by penile erection — when shown erotic homosexual videos.

Yea but what you gotta understand is that’s just an anger boner, dude.
