Your specialist subject: The bleedin’ obvious

Two awesome scientific research studies everyone should disseminate widely:

  1. Study #1: “The results of this study indicate that individuals who score in the homophobic range and admit negative affect toward homosexuality demonstrate significant sexual arousal to male homosexual erotic stimuli.” The one-liner: 80% of homophobic males are turned on by gay porn, compared to 34% of non-homophobic males.

  2. Study #2: “I found that if you made men more insecure about their masculinity, they displayed more homophobic attitudes, tended to support the Iraq war more and would be more willing to purchase an SUV over another type of vehicle”

I thought these were common knowledge, but a couple of people refused to believe without a link today, so I think the fact-based community needs to do a better job of spreading the news.
