It’s a narrative that I have no doubt is true in some cases — just as some violently homophobic folks may be homophobic due to their own insecurity around their attraction to others of their same sex. More generally, I always find it odd when one person tries to demean or invalidate another. It seems pointless, and very insecure no matter the “reason.”
