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.

  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!

    2. If they did another study they'd find that religious belief makes people more stupid too.

    3. I agree with the above!!! Stop hiding behind religion! Love is Love!!!! Mind your own business!

    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.

  4. Please God bestow jason with cognitive ability, for he has lost his way and rid him of the Demon on his shoulder!

    Amen

  5. Your sexual preferences do not affect your intelligence factor. Why is this even a topic of interest?

    1. The article never says that. It says that homophobia is linked to lower intelligence.

  6. Not at all what the article is about. Homophobia is more likely in people with lower cognitive abilities.

  7. I have to agree. Typos like that often “suggest” a lack of command of the English language. Throws me off, too.

  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.

  10. Remember when the study about trans people regretting their transition was shut down? Yeah, studies like this are meaningless now, they're only done to push agendas.

  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? What a load of bullcrap, in fact the LGBT is a big mistake in this world, now that we're minding our own business, as ya'll LGBT supporters asked, you know mock us? Have shame you gay bastards

    2. Ooooh, a classic closet queen, FUCKTHELGBT, aren't you? Most of your kind eventually get caught sucking cock in public men's rooms. How embarrassing to ve a casebook study, you poor, sad loser.Do you prefer straight pedophile rapists like Trump? Though his obsession with Obama,
      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.

    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.

  13. Many are closeted gays too, who hate themselves. This study is obviously flawed or biased. Besides that A New Study Shows that you can get anyone to believe anything these days as long as you say "A New Study Shows" at the beginning of the claim lol!
