I read this report and I must say it is congruent with some of my own supposition on the subject. I have always considered the possibility that the vast majority of homophobic individuals were more afraid of their own homosexual inclinations than actual homosexuality itself.  It brings to mind this phrase; "Thou doth protest too much".

I generally assume that this is also the case for people who think it is a choice, as in "I chose not to be what I am, actually, so you should have to, as well."  So I pity those who say it is a choice, is what I'm saying.  Because I assume they are so far in the closet, they think it is their house.  I also think the article is hinting at the pervasiveness of rape culture, as in people who respond to feeling arousal with violence.  The "how dare you make me feel this way" thing.
