"Homophobia is the fear that other men will unmask us, emasculate us, reveal to us and the world that we do not measure up, that we are not real men…In this sense, homophobia, the fear of being perceived as gay, as not a real man, keeps men exaggerating all the traditional roles of masculinity, including the sexual predation of women."
Michael S. Kimmel, “Masculinity as Homophobia”
