Researchers from the University of Rochester, the University of Essex, England, and the University of California Santa Barbara have published the results of a study confirming that homophobes are actually deeply closeted homosexuals themselves. This is something that almost any gay person would agree with, and now that the research has been done, I’m happy to admit that I was right. <—always happy to admit this
Homophobia is more pronounced in individuals with an unacknowledged attraction to the same sex and who grew up with authoritarian parents who forbade such desires, a series of psychology studies demonstrates.
“Individuals who identify as straight but in psychological tests show a strong attraction to the same sex may be threatened by gays and lesbians because homosexuals remind them of similar tendencies within themselves,” explains Netta Weinstein, a lecturer at the University of Essex and the study’s lead author.
“In many cases these are people who are at war with themselves and they are turning this internal conflict outward,” adds co-author Richard Ryan, professor of psychology at the University of Rochester who helped direct the research.
There were four different studies that were done and the entire report from ScienceDaily is actually rather revealing and interesting. Again, something that has been assumed by many for a while, but now we have science on our side to explain that this is the truth. While I should be happy, I’m actually rather disturbed by these findings. All this means is that people are so ashamed of who they are that they try to mask their identity by abusing those who have had a similar path but chose to accept who they were as opposed to hiding this. Damaged, closeted homosexuals hating those who were able to overcome hate and prejudice.

A three-year-old boy in England was a proud kid, until he realized that what he had found wasn’t an easter egg; Instead, it was a hand grenade and the bomb squad had to be called and postpone any further hunting.
Stuart Moffatt, 34, along with his wife and three children, was at the Holford, Somerset event. Moffatt describes what he was thinking when he saw the toddler standing over the World War II-era explosive.
“We were beginning to count up the eggs at the end of the hunt and I saw a boy of three standing on an object,” Moffatt told the paper. “It was brown and about 4 inches high. It looked like an Easter egg, but it was a hand grenade — I was shocked. The boy who was standing on it thought it was a rock.”
After the bomb squad was informed of the explosive, they were able to disable the grenade before anyone at the event was hurt. Talk about one sick bunny.

Being buried alive would be one of the most horrifying things to ever go through. Sadly, it would be even worse knowing that the person who did this to you was someone you trusted and loved.
Michelina Lewandowska, 27, was initially shot with a 300,000 volt Taser stun gun by her boyfriend Marcin Kasprzak, 25, who allegedly wanted to ‘get rid of her’ by killing her.
She was bound and gagged with parcel tape and put in a box with only two small air holes, Leeds Crown Court was told.
The terrified woman was put in the boot of her boyfriend’s car, driven to a wooded area and buried in a ‘shallow grave.’
Patryk Borys, 18, helped his friend, Kasprzak, bury his girlfriend in the shallow grave by placing soil and a heavy tree branch over the box Lewandowska had been put in. The poor terrified girl stayed quiet during this process due to fear and waited for the men to leave before she attempted to escape. Meanwhile, the two men went and stole some of the victims money from her credit cards.
Michelina was able to get herself out of the box and then dig her way to the surface before flagging down a passing motorist.
However, Kasprzak was ‘bored’ with her and allegedly wanted his partner removed from the scene so he could look after Jakub without her and start a new relationship with another girlfriend.
The young man had asked his mother to watch their son that way he could take care of his girlfriend without anyone being suspicious.
Using the stun gun he tried to ‘immobilise’ his girlfriend by twice discharging 300,000 volts into her neck.
Mr Sharp said the two men bound her at the wrists and ankles and gagged her.
‘Michelina was not paralysed,’ said Mr Sharp. ‘But nevertheless, as you can well imagine, she was terrified and she agreed to do whatever he wanted.’
The men dumped her clothes outside with the rubbish and put their victim into a cardboard box, just 1ft 10in deep, that had previously contained a computer.
Not the men are admitting that they did put their victim in the box and bury her, but the intention was not for her to die. When you bury someone alive, what the hell is your intent? Do you want her to get out and then let police know what you did? That seems rather ridiculous and idiotic to even claim that this was the case. The great thing is this kid will not be able to live his life with his mother and without his father, who is obviously a sick fucking person.

The Hollywood Reporter - Kanye West was met with boos at the Big Chill music fest in England Saturday night.
“I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street, and people look at me like I’m [expletive] insane, like I’m Hitler,” he said on stage, according to the Associated Press as the audience booed. “One day the light will shine through and one day people will understand everything I ever did.”
West also defended his “Monster,” music video, which features girls hanging from their necks and cannibalism.
“Who saw the video before it got banned, before they took it down and before women’s groups starting saying that a person that lost the most important woman in his life is now against women in some way?” asked West, referring to the 2007 death of his mother Donda West.
West apologized for starting 30 minutes late, saying, “Michael Jordan changed so much in basketball, he took his power to make a difference. It’s so much [expletive] going on in music right now and somebody has to make a [expletive] difference,” he said.
West closed his show by paying tribute to Amy Winehouse. He spoke about meeting her during Paris fashion week, and played a few moments from her songs “Tears Dry on Their Own” and “Back to Black.” He called her “beautiful” and “amazing.”
But West closed his show on a positive note by paying tribute to Amy Winehouse.
But then he added, “Thank you for protecting your artists that are still here. This is for [Alexander] McQueen, for Amy, for Michael and for all the media, can you lighten up on all your artists that are still here?”
The crowd, which had booed him earlier, cheered and applauded.
This isn’t the first time the rapper has been met with boos. He was booed at a Chicago Bulls basketball game in February, at the 2010 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade and at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, when he stormed the stage to protest Taylor Swift beating out Beyonce.
- The Associated Press contributed to this report.
According to Mirror, Amy Winehouse was in the process of adopting a ten-year-old girl named Dannika from St.Lucia because her family was too poor to care for her.
Amy had booked her ticket to visit the schoolgirl next week. The child’s grandmother revealed the singer had already hired lawyers for the adoption, but her plans were cut short by her sudden death last week aged just 27.
Winehouse had met Dannika while she was visiting the Carribean, and felt a connection with the girl who was being cared for by her single mother. Unfortunately, her mother was finding it difficult to even feed the girl due to their money problems.
Young Dannika had some statements to make about the singer/songwriter, “Amy was already my mother. I would call her mum and she would call me her daughter. She took care of me and we had fun together. I loved her and she loved me.
She was the most amazing person and I was looking forward to living with her here or in London. I cannot believe she is gone. This is the worst thing that ever happened to me.”
