The junk ‘science’ behind anti-‘hate’

When a psychologist dares to research politically contentious issues such as a link between race and IQ and comes up with the ‘wrong answer’, they automatically come under fire for a purely assumed motivation without any further evidence to justify the presumption of bias. But where is the outcry when psychologists confuse value judgements such as “homophobia” with valid scientific constructs and proceed to research them? Wasn’t the word “homophobia” invented for explicitly political reasons? Who decides on the double standard?

Such research is little more than an attempt to stigmatise political opinions as akin to mental illnesses – like former attempts to medicalise and ‘cure’ homosexuality itself.

Is Some Homophobia Self-Phobia?
