You threatening my masculinity? Fine! Watch me buy this SUV, hate gay people and support the war!

A Cornell study has shown that men overcompensate when their "masculinity is threatened" and become more likely to buy a big burly SUV, support the war in Iraq and express homophobic feelings.

"In a separate study, [researcher Rob Willer] verified that support for the Iraq War, homophobia and interest in purchasing an SUV were all considered masculine by study participants."
