The Heterosexuality Experiment: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-07-20 at 9.43.36 AM

Youtuber Joseph Costello has conducted what he calls a "heterosexuality experiment" wherein he made his way around Austin, Texas asking people if they would vote for a heterosexual president. In doing so, he discovered that there are homophobes in that city who don't even know the definition of the word "heterosexuality."

Watch Costello's ignorant interviewees (some more disturbing than others) give their answers, AFTER THE JUMP.

  3. Maybe it's because "homophobe"/"homophobia" are dumb words (see also: "cis"). People don't have a phobia about homosexuality, they just don't like it, it's a word made up by academics that is rejected by the American Psychiatric Association.

  4. Is this America? You can't fight stupid. I think we better start arming ourselves.

  5. Um, Texas is not America, it is Amurika, let's not be confused.

  6. ^ uh...Nathan, i bet you could walk down the streets of Southern California as well and find people that respond in the same manner. Texas may have its share of jackasses, but so does the so called Left Coast. It's all America. It is not a competition among states.

  7. phobia: an extremely strong dislike or fear of someone or something; an exaggerated usually inexplicable and illogical fear of a particular object, class of objects, or situation

    @Henry Holland: Actually the first use of 'homophobia' was coined by anti-gay morality forces in California in the 1940s. It was a self-applied moniker that they proudly asserted. Interesting how the perception of that term has evolved into the categorically negative use it has today. Of course, it's a lot more fun to blame that on the pointy-headed 'academics' with their fancy book-learnin' and such and like and so forth.

  10. Those morons probably don't even vote. Ask a better segment of the population.

  11. And Austin is supposed to be the most progressive/liberal part of Texas.... so sad.

  12. Texas is a republic Partei State where cutting funding to education is a natural thing because if they get too much education the people tend NOT to vote republic Partei. This State strongly believes in keeping all the voters as dumb, bigoted and afraid of anything connected to Democrats, liberals or educated people as humanly possible. The republic Partei politicians even strive to appear as dumb and bigoted as the sheeples they lead and many times really are dumb, stupid and moronic.

  13. what percentage of the interviewees didn't know the meaning of "heterosexual?" Did Costello run into a smattering of dummies or a significant percentage?

  14. Wow, he got a sociopath on camera. Fascinating.

  15. "Actually the first use of 'homophobia' was coined by anti-gay morality forces in California in the 1940's"

    Your proof? It was actually coined in *the late 60's* by a psychologist named George Weinberg. It first appeared in print in 1969. So, whatever.

    " Of course, it's a lot more fun to blame that on the pointy-headed 'academics'"

    There's nothing "inexplicable" or "illogical" about the attitudes of people that Towleroad and JMG and others keep track of, it's either a money grab by grifters (see: Porno Pete) or based on a few passages in a 2000 year old book written by goat herders (too many to name).

    It's a dumb concept and needs to be sent to the dustbin of history.

  16. poor Holland. there's no such thing as "they just don't like it" - at all.

    there's nothing to "not like" - it poses no threat to anyone, and it's not weird or gross to anyone that hasn't been taught and encouraged to have a negative response to it.

    it's a learned prejudice. this is something that intelligent people understand.

    this video isn't that shocking. newsflash: ignorant idiots are often bigoted idiots.

  17. Why did he cover the guy's face?? People like him are the ones that need extermination.

  18. @Henry Holland: You demand proof without proffering any yourself?

    Typical hypocrisy of the irrational self-entitlement of religious/political conservatives.

    Weinberg lifted the term from the writings of MY GRANDFATHER Jasper Hutchins McWebstein, whose original diaries dating back to 1942 I possess. THERE is your proof! What's yours? Or is a flaccid 'whatever' the best you have?

  21. Speaking of the term homophobe, the term racist was popularized by German Jew, and he was refering to anti-Jewish (anti-semitic) attitudes. He apparently believed Jews were/are a race.

    @Mari Pili Webstein,

    There's plenty of hypocricy and irrational self-entitlement on the right and left. Of course most sane people are neither far left nor far right.

  22. ratbastard - Jews are not merely those who adhere to a religion. there are religious jews. cultural jews. ethnic jews.

    there are ethnic non-religious jews. ugh, why am i even bothering. how's your fake-dead dad doing? still fake dead? :D he was killed by blacks gang-banging his anus apart, right? lucky man!

  23. @Raymond Miller,

    WOOSH !!

    And you are really lucky you we aren't face to face, I'd beat the living snot out if you,boss. An obnoxious little spoiled (redacted F word) like you deserves a beating.

    Posted by: ratbastard | Jul 21, 2014 3:18:09 PM

  24. we'll never be face to face. i won't ever be visiting the dank basement sewer where your trolling miserable self is destined to ride out your remaining days.

    it's not that i'm "lucky" - it's that you're a pathetic closeted troll with no balls. and you couldn't if you tried. have a nice day with your fake-dead dad in your fake life.

  25. Disturbing. Mind boggling. I'm beside myself.
    The thing that struck me the most is that the Nazi found the video, and how he reacted.
    Youtube took down the first version that showed the Nazi's face, to protect his identity. Youtube protecting a Nazi?! Ok...
    The Nazi felt no embarrassment for his error or being fooled, and he threatened Costello.

    The Nazi also posted in response that he 'cums everywhere' whenever he finds out a gay person has been beaten to death... Proof that anti-gays are sadists too.

    The Nazi is hardly 6 degrees away from those other responders; there's so much overlap that the Nazi should be an indicator of what's underneath the surface of those other anti-gays. Kind of changes the image of a 'concerned traditional religious family values' people; I see them as monsters wallowing in blood the same way pigs wallow in mud.
