What's this notion that not liking homosexuality = you're a closet gay?
 
I'm not understanding this logic. Why does this seemingly only apply to homosexuality? A phobia is an irrational or exaggerated fear of something. So taking a literal interpretation of the word "homophobia" it is used out of context. I don't think most people who don't like gay people/gay behavior necessarily fear the idea of a person being gay or themselves being gay, they are just grossed out by the idea of a man putting his dick in another man's ass. Or for females, 1 woman fondling another woman's breasts, ******.

It's just a defense gay people made up for themselves to make themselves feel better and get back at homo haters, when homo haters senselessly harass them.

The best way to get under the skin of someone is imply that they are something they hate.

So to get under the skin of a KKK member, I should call him a closet black guy?

Maybe Dave Chappelle was on to something.

IMO anyone who goes out of their way to protest homosexuality is suspect. I don't think it's a coincidence that some of the most vocal and visible anti gay figures turn out to be fanny bandits themselves (Bishop Eddie Long, Ted Haggard, etc). If you're comfortable in your own sexuality, you wouldn't spend all your time worrying about someone else's.

I think the going out of your way to make sure people know you don't like gay behavior makes you suspect. I've never felt the need to yell HEY IM STRAIGHT! I DO NOT LIKE TOUCHING OTHER MENS *****! JUST SO YOU KNOW. The fact some people feel the need to let people know they are straight makes me think they have some secret concerns about their sexuality.

agree with this. but at the same time there's loads of people who hate gays and aren't homos themselves.

for example white dudes can hate mexicans but its not because they're afraid that they secretly are mexicans in the closet.

You can't turn mexican ethnically, but you can come out being gay. That's a huge difference. It's very unlikely being a closet mexican.

This. Why would they worry about someone else sexuality? How does that even bother them personally?

If you wanna bring race or ethnicity into it, you can look at self loathing Jews or "uncle Toms" as examples of people who are shamed and hate what they are, and will take measures to oppose it.

You're obviously too stupid to understand the concept of cause and effect...a closer homo is not gay because he hates gays, he hates gays because he himself is gay...

So if you're actually a cat that hates cats then sir I commend your paw typing abilities.
