Some people fear change, especially to their world view, they see it as a direct attack against them. They like the world as simple as possible, the less nuance and surprise the better. They imagine themselves developing a physical attraction towards someone and they’re incapable of accepting the nuance that a person can be male or female regardless of their appearance and the person with a simple world view imagines themselves being tricked into being gay, which is a whole other issue for them, because once again the nuance of sexual attraction isn’t something they can process. Everything outside of their worldview is either lies or deviancy, any lie or deviancy (in their mind) related to sex (in their mind) is an additional affront, akin to rape and molestation. They can’t accept nuance, so it’s a lie, if it’s a lie about sex it MUST being for nefarious purposes, which means it’s going to harm others, or them.
At least that’s what I think is going on.
You are always going to have people would cannot accept reality or complex thought or emotions, and those people will invariably act like assholes.
