So I understand Mike Huckabee advises, "let’s make all consensual adult behaviors legal, whether prostitution, assisted suicide, or even drinking 16 ounce sodas in New York City."

Wow, well, okay, since he said so ...

I agree with you... except for that 16 oz. soda. There, I have to draw the line.

You are such a hypocrite, and a lying bigot yourself.

How shocking.(Not really. Quite expected.)

Denial?

I'll bet Mike is gay as a three legged duck.

"In an earlier study, conducted by the Department of Psychology, University of Georgia in 1996, it was found that homophobia is associated with homosexual arousal that the homophobic individual is either unaware of or denies."

The study is the first to document the role that both parenting and sexual orientation play in the formation of intense and visceral fear of homosexuals, including self-reported homophobic attitudes, discriminatory bias, implicit hostility towards gays, and endorsement of anti-gay policies. Conducted by a team from the University of Rochester, the University of Essex, England, and the University of California in Santa Barbara, the research will be published the April issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

Amazing how the more militant/ridiculous always make the immediate and frenzied claim of "I bet he's really a closet queen."

Can't somebody dare disagree with, or just plain not like you, and still be straight?

Amazing. I seriously agreed with "Otter in the Ozarks" and still got judged as spam, nuts and clueless by the silly emoticons.

And you wonder why I take so few of you idiots seriously.

Because studies show a high per cent of homophobic people are self-hating homosexuals in denial.

Your BS detector is faulty.

Well I guess you told me. Your insightful exposure of my hypocrisy, lies, and bigotry cause me no end of embarrassment. You've left me utterly devastated, and I hang my head in shame.

You should.

But you do get points for good sarcasm.

That should read: "You should, but you won't. You're proud of your prejudice. Not sure why your prejudice is so much better than Huckabee's"

I agree with you to a point. Although it is true that many homophobes are actually closeted, I doubt it applies to all of them. And I don't think it is in any way helpful for people to repeatedly make this claim about every single homophobe, unless it's reasonably obvious.

It's more effective (and fun) to wait until they get caught toe tapping in airport stalls, sending naughty emails to interns or taking rentboys on vacation... that kind of thing. It certainly happens often enough to substantiate the claim that SOME of the most virulently anti-gay bigots are indeed self-loathing closet cases.

But yes... some people are just ignorant bigots who may not be gay at all. Huckleberry Hick may not be gay, but he's certainly in denial about being a homophobe. It's like a racist who says, "I have nothing against black people, I think everyone should own one."
