As a Heterosexual, Is Being Repulsed by the Sight of Two Homosexuals Copulating Homophobic?

Answered on Quora.
I suppose most straight men must be homophobes then if that is true.
A recent study showed straight men some sort of depictions of gay behavior (perhaps gay porn?) and measured the levels of disgust they experienced. I am not sure how they measured the disgust levels. Then they exposed these men to other things that most people think are disgusting. They found that straight men were more disgusted and repulsed by gay sex than they were by the sight of maggots. Maggots! That’s a pretty extreme level of revulsion.
What we don’t know is if this revulsion is inborn somehow or if it is learned behavior. I suspect it may be learned.

  1. As a straight man, I indeed find even the thought of two hairy sweaty men screwing each other highly disgusting. Maggots are nothing in comparison!

  2. I don’t believe there is any such thing as homophobia. A phobia is an irrational fear. Disgust is a natural biological reaction to harm. I’m not afraid of dog feces, I’m naturally repulsed by its smell which signals harm.
