Pedophiles have been around for centuries in all different forms: male, female, young, and old.

3. Theory Discussion This paper is focused on exploring the reaction closeted homosexuals have towards gay marriage and whether they experience a more extreme, negative reaction towards it than those who are heterosexual. The theory here is that individuals who are closeted homosexuals, are closeted because they are experiencing some sort of rejection of their identity as being homosexual. Those who are closeted homosexuals are either unable to come to terms with their sexual orientation or, perhaps do not want others to know, and thus, react strong against homosexuality and any legislation which supports gay rights.
