methinks thou dost protest too much*

ladies, keep this in mind the next time your guy makes some crass, homophobic crack. or the next time your elected representative votes against lgbt legislation. or the next time your church official...well. you get the idea:
In 1996, three researchers from the University of Georgia published a study in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology about the links between homophobia and homosexual arousal.

The authors, Henry E. Adams, Lester W. Wright, Jr., and Bethany A. Lohr, started with 35 straight men identified as homophobic and 29 straight men that were not. Both groups were shown heterosexual, lesbian and gay male porn while their erectile responses were measured.

“Only the homophobic men showed an increase in penile erection to male homosexual stimuli,” reported the researchers.
*this is a common "misquote." certainly tuesdaysblog readers know the correct version, and where it comes from. right?
