From Homophobia to Racism
Why would homophobia develop into racism?
The “Real Men” vs. the “Others”: The manhood is constituted by masculinity. But the idea that masculinity only belongs to a distinct group leads to anxiety. Therefore, those self-proclaimed “real men” would try to prevent the “others” from achieving masculinity. The “others” include women, gay men as well as other men who do not share the same manhood.
