Fletch New 'Study' Retreads Old Gay Narrative

According to WND, a new study has been done that suggests that those who are against the practice of homosexuality are actually closet gays. According to one commenter, this narrative was tried 40 years ago, and is as silly now as it was then.

A new study that claims opposition to homosexuality means a person probably is a closet homosexual is nothing more than a rehash of propaganda used in the 1970s, according to a former liberal who now warns of the “gay” agenda.
“This is so old-hat, they were saying this in the 1970s when I was a liberal progressive. This was standard indoctrination talking points about homosexuality even back then,” said Linda Harvey, founder of Mission America. “This has been around for 40 years and they are now bringing it back around.”
So how did they perform this test? By flashing words on a computer monitor and timing how fast the recipients of the test clicked.

The study was conducted using college students whose sexual orientation was determined by self-identification and how they performed a split-second task. They were shown words and pictures on a computer screen and asked to put them in “gay” or “straight” categories. Prior to the trials, the participants were shown either the word “me” or “others” for 35 milliseconds.

After this they were shown pictures of straight and “gay” couples and the words “gay,” “straight,” homosexual” and “heterosexual” while a computer tracked their response times.
According to the authors, people who had a faster reaction with words “me” and “gay” were deemed to be homosexuals regardless of their stated orientation.

The authors concluded people who declared themselves to be heterosexual, while the reaction time indicated they were homosexual, often reacted with hostility to “gay others.” The study claimed hostility to the “gay” lifestyle by these individuals reveals that homophobia is possibly a result of a suppressed homosexual orientation.
Sounds like voodoo science to me. I would have liked to have seen 'Extra Terrestrial' as an option to have been flashed on the screen as well, just to prove how many people are really space aliens and not from Earth as they claim.
