Interesting Theory

So in my textbook a person named Weinberg theorized that one psychological reason for homophobia might be that since gay people cannot concieve children the thought of persons without children often makes people unconciously face the thought of death and their own mortality since producing children is a way to carry on the individual/family after death. A reminder of one's mortality is threatening to the ego and this fear becomes homophobia.


  • I thought it was just a fear of being THAT fashionable.
