  1. I often wonder why the bad guys look so pretty. Does their attractiveness make people unwittingly let them get away with blue murder, spoiling them in the process?

    Anti-gay societal attitudes that bred the likes of Peters have now been driven into a minority position in most Western countries, however they still persist in both the extreme right and extreme left, one of many points where their horribleness intersects. It’s also true that the vilest manifestations of homopbobia are invariably from closet homosexuals – often from notable members of the clergy, such as the disgraced Scottish Cardinal Keith O’Brien, or even convicted pedophiles, such as Cardinal George Pell. It’s the saddest of sadnesses that those whom the LGBT+ have the most to fear, are themselves gay men. I know a great many heterosexual men, and they’re frankly far too in love with their wives or girlfriends to obsess over what a gay man is doing with another gay man. It doesn’t concern them. They’re friends with LGBT+ people by and large, including me.

    Below are titles of several articles I have found linking to research, which repeatedly shows that people whose homophobia spills over into violence are themselves closet homosexuals:
