26. I don't think that's the obvious implication.
Edited on Fri Feb-16-07 04:35 AM by pnwmom
I think many people are adopting the Freudian idea of projection: that when people hate something about themselves (such as being attracted to members of the same sex), they may project their inner hatred onto others. In other words, if you hate the gayness you perceive in yourself, you will hate gay people, too.

Of course, that doesn't mean that the reverse if true -- that all people who hate gay people must be gay themselves. But I think that kind of hatred does raise a question in many people's minds. What did Shakespeare say about protesting too much?
