It's sad how people are conditioned by society to have such a deeply-ingrained ingroup-outgroup worldview, which forms mores that impact every aspect of social cognition, and sadly, self-identity. Homophobia in society amplifies this "cognitive dissonance" between ought self and actual self, and as a result, a lot of great aspects of personality get cancelled out or frazzled.
