Homosexuality VS Camp: is homophobia a projected misogyny?:
I figured from the phrase "projected misogyny" that it implied that misogyny was not just the cultural root but the individual's root of the individual's homophobia. Anyway, here's a new thread for the notion of misogyny by association.
"I even like the idea of a nice man who sees me when I'm sleeping and knows when I'm awake. And that man is Barack Obama." - Bill Maher
Culture and individual behavior are a Catch-22. Humans, by nature, are social animals. We unconsciously look for feedback from our own kind, and when that feedback leads to a tend, we tend to go with that trend. At some point, these trends may pick up momentum and be justified by social or legal stigma. For example, a straight kid that gets made fun of every time s/he does something that seems gay will eventually learn to stop doing those things and, possibly, will ridicule others that do the same.
