Are homophobes more likely than not to be gay?

The origins of the imperative, "know thyself", are lost in the sands of time, but the age-old examination of human consciousness continues here.

Are homophobes more likely than not to be gay?

Hugh Hefner said in an early interview that all humans are bisexual, and that only compulsive homosexuality is unnatural. So to stick exclusively with ones own gender, that, he thought, is an affliction or due to one. I am not taking this as a fact, as bisexuality is extremely marginal, but for the sake of an argument.

The other side of this coin might be the homophobe, who is as rigorously afraid of his bisexuality as the ideological lesbian, and who makes it his life purpose to seek out every man he is attracted to that he thinks is gay, so as to say "gaygaygaygaygaybuttsex" all his life long.

We have our own "leernicht" with a huge closet-gay-parade in his signature. This helpless man is seeking for a way out of the closet. It is disgusting. His closet, I mean. Probably other parts too, because why the closet? Ah - of course. A homophobe is likely to be a gay who doesn't measure up to his parents tastes. This is reprehensible.

Anyway, I have made my speculative position known. Please share your views. I will include a fair poll not reflecting any conclusions.
(This is not a homophobic thread. I think that gay men have contributed greatly to our culture. But I also don't blame societies for prohibiting overt gayness. It is quite clearly a deviancy. Its just a question of how deviant you want your society to be. Athens clearly liked it very deviant.)

This is why I included the lower 2 options.

They are not disgusted, they are jealous of your unrepressed valuing.
