Are homophobes latent homosexuals?

Science has proven that the most homophobic are the most likely to be latent homosexuals in wussy denial.

Homophobes Might Be Hidden Homosexuals
A new analysis of implicit bias and explicit sexual orientation statements may help to explain the underpinnings of anti-gay bullying and hate crimes


Is Homophobia Associated With Homosexual Arousal?
Excerpts:
Putting Freud to the Test
O Really wrote:Well, it's not like us queer-lovers thought up that here on our little forum. It's pretty well settled in psychoanalytic literature. If I had as much irrational disgust for any group as you do, I'd hie myself off to a shrink and find out why and if there's anything to do about it. Carrying all that around can wring the happy right out of life. Unless the group is rednecks, of course, and then total disgust is rational. You don't have to know any personally to know they're a bunch of slimy shit-sacks.

Actually, it's pretty hard to find any explanation set forth by the scientific/medical community … other than that.

That seems to be borne out by political events in the past 20 or so years. There's the case of Alaska Senator Ted Stevens, who voted consistently against gay rights, but was arrested in an airport restroom by an undercover vice squad officer after Stevens solicited him for sex.

Other notables may include homophobic televangelist Jim Bakker, who later was accused by at least two co-workers of attempting to molest them.

Here's a good discussion of the issue:

The Weird Science of Homophobes Who Turn Out to Be Gay

A 2012 study in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology generated a fair number of headlines that year—including The New York Times’ “Homophobic? Maybe You’re Gay”—for suggesting that some self-avowed straight people who showed signs of same-sex desire were more likely to hold discriminatory attitudes....

The result: The researchers isolated a “subgroup of participants”—more than “20 percent of self-described highly straight individuals”—who “indicated some level of same-sex attraction,” and who were “significantly more likely than other participants to favor anti-gay policies; to be willing to assign significantly harsher punishments to perpetrators of petty crimes if they were presumed to be homosexual; and to express greater implicit hostility toward gay subjects.”

“Thus our research suggests that some who oppose homosexuality do tacitly harbor same-sex attraction,” they concluded.

The psychological mechanism behind this subgroup’s anti-LGBT vitriol is, in theory, relatively simple: They are taking out their own issues with sexual identity on other people.

I don't recall that with Alaska Senator Ted Stevens and can't find it with a quick search. Are you maybe thinking of homophobic rightwing Repug Idaho Senator Larry Craig?

To be fair, marriage to Tammy Faye would make me consider switching teams, too.
