F*ggots = Maggots
In heterosexual men, pictures of rotting flesh, maggots and spoiled food induce the same physiological stress response as pictures of two men kissing each other. That is the surprising finding that was recently published in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Psychology & Sexuality.
“We originally were interested in understanding the health effects of same-sex vs. mixed-sex public displays of affection for the couples in the relationship,” explained the study’s corresponding author, Karen L. Blair of St. Francis Xavier University.
“However, one of the factors likely to influence how individuals experience PDAs is the reaction that other people have to witnessing PDAs. Consequently, we decided to begin the research by examining whether or not heterosexuals have negative responses to witnessing same-sex PDAs; in particular, we began by examining heterosexual male responses to male same-sex public displays of affection.”
“Participants watched a series of slideshows: male couples kissing, male couples holding hands, mixed-sex couples kissing, mixed-sex couples holding hands, boring images (e.g., paper clips) and disgusting images (maggots),” Blair explained. “In between slide shows, we asked participants questions about their responses to the photos (not yet published) and we also collected saliva samples in order to assess salivary alpha-amylase in response to each slide show (the current paper).”
Measuring levels of salivary alpha-amylase, a digestive enzyme that is associated with stress and is especially responsive to disgust, allowed the researchers to examine the men’s physiological reaction to the photos. The study was based on results from 120 heterosexual men (aged 18 to 45).
“In comparing the salivary alpha-amylase responses of participants to the various slideshows, we found that participants had higher salivary alpha-amylase responses to the images of two men kissing and the disgusting images. In both cases, these responses were significantly different than the responses they had to the neutral stimuli.”
However, Blair warned it was difficult to interpret the finding at this stage.
“It is difficult to specifically state what this means. It could mean that participants found the images of male same-sex couples kissing to be equally disgusting as the disgusting images. It could mean that they had an anxiety response to the male couples kissing and a disgust response to the disgusting images, but that physiologically, we could not tell the difference between these two emotions.”
Previous research has found a strong link between sexual prejudice and the emotion of disgust. For instance, a 2008 study found that individuals who are more easily disgusted are also more likely to make unfavorable moral judgments about gay people.
But it was clear that the physiological reactions in the present study could not be explained by the participants’ sexual prejudices alone.
There is already a fair bit of research on this. Conservative views are associated with and increased by disgust. Disgust not fear/phobia. Nobody is afraid of fags they find them disgusting. Disgust is a protective emotion of both the self and the group and, it’s hard wired. We wretch at rot, decay and, foul smells to protect ourselves and our group from poisoning. We are disgusted by and shun the sick to prevent ourselves and the group from getting sick. We are naturally disgusted by faggots because they harm the group by not producing offspring while draining resources and spreading disease. Those not disgusted by faggots are the same type of people in the past who would eat rotten meat and drink poison water. If you want to redpill someone disgust them. Why do you think the (((news))) won’t show the white victims of terror attacks? Force the liberals to look at children smeared across the pavement or twerking for an group of horny faggots if you want to change them. Most are to far gone and love the taste of poison though.
