Can You Judge a Bigot By Its Cover? Jimmy Kimmel Finds Out

+

As we learned last week, researchers have been looking into whether or not conservatives or liberals have better gaydar. Even harder than telling whether or not someone is gay just by looking at them is telling whether or not someone is a homophobe just by looking at them. It’s not like people are walking down the streets holding signs that read “God Hates Fags” or anything. Not most streets, anyway.

Or so you would think. The results are a lot easier to guess than you might expect, at least based on the on-the-street interviews Jimmy Kimmel did on his show last night. If the guy looks like an asshole, he’s against gay marriage. If they look like a reasonable human being with the bare minimum standards of human decency, then they’re for it. Also, if they’re not phased by the single gayest looking dude you’ve ever seen gaying down the sidewalk in Hollywood, then they’re probably cool too. See, judging people on how they act and look is easy! Wait, maybe that’s what got us in the whole bigoted mess in the first place. Forget everything I just said.
