Default Re: Andrew Garfield wants Spider-Man to be Gay?

Well it's worth mentioning that it's been demonstrated that people feel safer with (and more attracted to) people who look like them. So, there is a biological aspect to racism. Homophobia is a bit more involved, and there are competing theories. But fearing what you don't understand is probably part of it.

The brain is biology. If a female brain produces effeminate behavior, then it stands to reason that a male brain structured like a female brain could produce something similiar. And of course, vice versa. But, obviously, if society doesn't... go for that (or if your parents teach you to be masculine), then men (gay or straight) who are effeminate, will attempt to act more masculine.
