New study show people who hate gays are generally less intelligent






To have a magazine titled Intelligence call you out for your low ‘cognitive ability’, as they put it, is not exactly a pleasant situation. But that’s what happened to a portion of the 11,654 people who were interviewed for a survey conducted by the University of Queensland inAustralia. The results of this study, which was led by Francisco Perales, show that there is a link between the acknowledgement of homophobia by participants & lower intelligence or cognizance levels.

Three fundamental and standardized tests were used to conduct this survey. The first of them is the National Adult Reading Test, which is a commonly used and generally accepted test used in a neurophysiological clinical setting to determine intelligence levels in patients who have been diagnosed with dementia. The Symbol Digits Modalities Test is another test used by the University in their study. This test is normally used to assess the level of brain damage that has resulted from severe injury or diseases and is said to be able to detect cognitive impairment in less than 5 minutes. The last type of test that they used is also frequently used in neuroscience research labs and can be categorized as a memory test.

Armed with the arsenal of tests mentioned above, the survey participants were first asked to take these tests. Following that, they asked people’s opinion on whether “Homosexual couples should have the same rights as heterosexual couples.” Analysis of the survey data revealed that the people who disagreed with the statement had poorer performance in the tests than the people who agreed. It’s not just that; this relationship between the results was maintained even after demographic factors such as education were controlled in a group.

In the words of Perales himself, “Altogether, the findings provide clear evidence that cognitive ability is an important precursor of prejudice against same-sex couples,”

The researchers found that cognitive ability was not the only factor that was affecting the people’s homophobia; education also had a role in it. It is only natural that these correlations would arise between homophobia and intelligence or say, level of education. Bestowing judgement for what a person chooses to be or what they choose to do has always been a specialty for our species. Through this survey, awareness can be raised and education can be suggested as a way of counteracting prejudice towards members of the LGBTQ Community.

  1. I would guess that all prejudice is linked to lower intelligence. I have no evidence to back it up, but I would assume that people with less cognitive ability would be more fearful and superstitious in general. They would also be easier to manipulate through fear. And prejudice is most often rooted in fear of differences real or imagined.

    1. Would you consider a extreme dislike of Republicans a sign of lower intelligence? Could it be that people of lower intelligence are more likely to admit their prejudices?

    2. The less intelligent you are, the more you need to hate on someone to make yourself feel smarter or better than some other group. I've maintained that for decades now. If the only thing you have to be proud of is the fact that you're a white male, guess what? Women and people of color are going to be good targets for you, so you can feel superior to them.

  2. BTW, Please check your headline. "New Study Show". If you point is about intelligence, it's difficult to be taken seriously when your grammar is incorrect. I know. I'm a terrible proofreader as well. Please no haters for trying t help! Blessings.

  3. Slaves of the Devil's Lust !

    The truth of the matter is , the devil does exist and is terrible.
    It is the devil who turns .
    .
    Self-Esteem into Pride,
    .
    Our Appreciation to Material Things into Greed;
    .
    Hurt Feelings into into Hatred and Vengefulness;
    .
    And the devil also turns Admiration for a Person of the Same Sex into.... Lust.- The Devil's Lust.
    .
    True love comes from GOD.
    .
    Lust comes from the Devil.
    .
    The Devil makes people believe that they should follow such inclinations to assert their freedom of choice, but soon they realize, that they have become slaves of the devil's lust and that their God given gift of freedom has been reduced to ashes.
    .
    But no situation is without remedy, for as long as there is life, there can be hope, there can be victory.
    .
    For those who are "Fallen" , who really wish to free themselves from the devil's lust, Christ - the man, our Lord and Savior is our great hope.
    .
    All that we have to do is ask his help and follow his example.
    .
    Christ , the most powerful of all allies is with us!

    4. Jason, "god" is a myth invented by man, as is "the devil." Jesus was a mortal man, a brown-skinned Jewish socialist, and probably gay. He would despise the disgusting bigots who pervert his message of love and call it "christianity." lf he were alive today, he and Judas would get couples counseling, marry each other, and hire Mary Magdalene as surrogate mother to their child, inseminated by their sperm. You need professional help.

    5. Test subject #314 (Jason) - shows unusual susceptibility to uncritical acceptance of archaic myth. May exhibit signs of religious mania. Will appear to be harmless but may act on these delusions. Keep assessing for deterioration and continue medication.

  8. I'd say that probably is true for other kinds of bigots, too. Then again, it's not often that those who are so ignorant and hateful limit their contempt just to one demographic. Ugh.

  11. I want hateful people to change their minds and stop hating. Click bait headlines like this and the disingenuous articles that follow do more to divide people. Love and understanding accomplish more education than name calling and brain-shaming. Who is going accept an invitation to come to the table after they have been insulted?

  12. It's says that homophobes are less intelligent, you mean that when the lgbt wasn't existing yet everyone's a dummy?

      and his misogyny,may also mean he is a closet case like you. LMFAO.

    3. I like when people always use the 'closet' retort when it is the only thing they have. I am actually certain that gays use it because they genuinely hate themselves and need to put people down on their level to make them feel better about themselves. You're all tragic cases.

      Delete
    4. The fact that you go straight to insulting shows you have lower cognitive ability and you hate the LGBT.... You are a perfect example of this study. Educate your self and learn to love others for their differences. Even if you don't agree with what LGBT people do doesn't mean you can't respect them as people just like we respect the Heteros even when they hate on us.

      Delete
    5. If you're going to lecture people on education, at least learn proper English format. It's 'yourself'. Furthermore, are you a representative of the community? Because there is more than enough LGBT that are sttraight out hetrophobic and 'cisphobic'. In fact, a lot of them are openly biphobic, even coining the term 'biscum'. The lgbt community is a dreg and a mess.

      Delete
    6. You poor, sad man. I suspect you have not interacted with very many gays -- or perhaps just the wrong ones. I have been an out gay man for 50 years and have experienced very few "heterophobic" (which for all your pretentions of education you misspelled as "heterophobic") acquaintances, and even fewer "cisphobic." I suspect you have real issues...

    7. To the writer who started this thread. Likely there was never a time when the human population didn't include LGBTQ. So more than two genders has always existed. Most animals have members who participate in homosexuality and there is plenty of evidence for many many cultures who had/have a place for people who were/are what we now call LGBTQ. Be aware that the Spanish Conquistadors went around murdering people in indigenous groups who didn't fit the Spanish idea of appropriate gender roles.

  20. I have a quibble with two sentences in the last paragraph.

    "It is only natural that these correlations would arise between homophobia and intelligence or say, level of education."

    I'm not sure that "it is natural" is the right way to characterize this. Instead I'd write something like for the writer these results correspond with their experience dealing with prejudice and homophobia. I mean, it confirms my experience, too, just the use of "it is natural" in this context seems misplaced.

    "Bestowing judgement for what a person chooses to be or what they choose to do has always been a specialty for our species."

    I didn't choose to be gay. Instead I'd say something like "Judgement and fear of the other has been a specialty for our species."

    Last, I wish the study included some kind of test for empathy. Even those with low cognitive or low education level can experience empathy, unless low cognizance corresponds with low empathy, in which case everything is fine.

  21. Whew..... An article about cognitive ability in folks who's opinions are different.... That study shows the intelligence level based on graded students at 1 school, in 1 country... Hardly a large enough test market to reach any real conclusion when looking at it from a sociological point of view. You test a bunch of people of the same class, in the same area, doing the same thing well, it HARDLY can be considered legitimate. It shows the difference in the socioethical norms amongst people on that campus.

    The article itself is a fallacy and the blogger clearly also has a low IQ.

    Albert Fucking Enstein was a confirmed hater of certain demographics different from his own.

  24. Makes sense that the ones conducting the study and agreeing would consider themselves more intelligent, totally scriptural! I agree! Also, man oh man do I love people, no matter the struggle or belief ♥️

    “Because when they knew and recognized Him as God, they did not honor and glorify Him as God or give Him thanks. But instead they became futile and godless in their thinking [with vain imaginings, foolish reasoning, and stupid speculations] and their senseless minds were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools [professing to be smart, they made simpletons of themselves]. And by them the glory and majesty and excellence of the immortal God were exchanged for and represented by images, resembling mortal man and birds and beasts and reptiles. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their [own] hearts to sexual impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves [abandoning them to the degrading power of sin], Because they exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, Who is blessed forever! Amen (so be it). [Jer. 2:11.] For this reason God gave them over and abandoned them to vile affections and degrading passions. For their women exchanged their natural function for an unnatural and abnormal one, And the men also turned from natural relations with women and were set ablaze (burning out, consumed) with lust for one another–men committing shameful acts with men and suffering in their own bodies and personalities the inevitable consequences and penalty of their wrong-doing and going astray, which was [their] fitting retribution. And so, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or approve of Him or consider Him worth the knowing, God gave them over to a base and condemned mind to do things not proper or decent but loathsome, Until they were filled (permeated and saturated) with every kind of unrighteousness, iniquity, grasping and covetous greed, and malice. [They were] full of envy and jealousy, murder, strife, deceit and treachery, ill will and cruel ways. [They were] secret backbiters and gossipers, Slanderers, hateful to and hating God, full of insolence, arrogance, [and] boasting; inventors of new forms of evil, disobedient and undutiful to parents. [They were] without understanding, conscienceless and faithless, heartless and loveless [and] merciless. Though they are fully aware of God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them themselves but approve and applaud others who practice them.”
