Is This Gay Behavior Sick?
Too Good Reports ^ | November 21, 2001 | Henry Makow Ph.D.

Posted on 11/21/2001 6:50:27 AM PST by Stand Watch Listen

Imagine that an organism is sick. Imagine that the sick cells convince the organism that they were healthy, and in fact, the healthy cells are sick. The gullible organism would just get sicker and sicker.

This is the relationship between society and homosexuals today. Gays argue that same-sex behavior is no different than being left-handed. On the other hand, they say heterosexual behavior is not natural, but socially conditioned and “oppressive.” Heterosexual society and family are being ravaged. Our stupid, opportunistic and craven leaders have betrayed us. We don´t even know we are at war.

Let´s decide whom, in fact, is sick.

Let´s look at gay behavior as defined by two gays, Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen Ph.D., authors of After the Ball: How America will Conquer its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90´s(1989).

In Chapter Six, they outline “ten categories of misbehavior,” drawn from their own experiences, wide reading and thousands of hours of conversation with hundreds of other gays. Their contention is that the gay lifestyle, not gay sexuality mind you, “is the pits.” They want gays to improve their image by addressing “what is wrong with a lot of gays.” (276)

What follows are some highlights. As you read this, ask yourself if there is another human community, including the Mafia that could make these generalizations about itself. Ask yourself if we haven´t caught this disease, or at least the sniffles.

•  The authors say “a surprisingly high percentage” of pathological liars and con men are gay. This results from a natural habit of self-concealment, and leads to a stubborn self-deception about one´s own gayness and its implications.

•  They say gays tend to reject all forms of morality and value judgments. Gay morality boils down to “If it feels good, I´ll do it!” If a gay feels like seducing a trusted friend´s lover, he´ll do it, justifying it as an act of “sexual freedom” and the friend be damned.

•  They say gays suffer from a “narcissistic” personality disorder and they give this clinical description: “pathological self absorption, a need for constant attention and admiration, lack of empathy or concern for others, quickly bored, shallow, interested in fads, seductive, overemphasis on appearance, superficially charming, promiscuous, exploitative, preoccupied with remaining youthful, relationships alternate between over idealization and devaluation.”

•  As an example of this narcissism, the authors say “a very sizable proportion of gay men” who have been diagnosed HIV positive continue to have unprotected sex.

•  They say the majority of gays are extremely promiscuous and self-indulgent. They must continuously up the ante to achieve arousal. This begins with alcohol and drugs and includes such “forbidden” aspects of sex as wallowing in filth (fetishism and coprophilia) and sadomasochism, which involves violence.

•  They say many gays indulge in sex in public bathrooms and think it is antigay harassment when it is stopped. Many think they have a right to importune straight males, including children.

•  Many gays are “single minded sexual predators” fixated on youth and physical beauty alone. When it comes to the old or ugly, gays are “the real queerbashers.” Disillusioned themselves, they are cynical about love.

•  “Relationships between gay men don´t usually last very long.” They quickly tire of their partners and fall victim to temptation. The “cheating ratio of ‘married´ gay males, given enough time, approaches 100%.”

•  Even friendships are based on the sexual test and hard to sustain. Unattractive gay men find it nearly impossible to find a friend, let alone a lover.

•  The authors say gays tend to deny reality in various ways: wishful thinking, paranoia, illogic, emotionalism and embracing crackpot ideas.

Is there any doubt that this behavior is sick? I feel no malice toward gays. I feel the same way about people who have the flu. I want them to get better and I don´t want it to spread.

Unfortunately, even the authors of this book are deceiving themselves. They claim that it is the gay lifestyle and NOT gay sexuality that is “the pits.” Who are they kidding? The two are inseparable.

The authors of this book are public relations experts who believe that “our problem is fundamentally one of bad image with straights.” The book details “a comprehensive public-relations campaign that should go a long way towards sanitizing our very unsanitary image:”

“Desensitization”: flooding straight America with advertising presenting gays in the “least offensive manner possible.”

“Jamming”: Advertising that equates fear of gays with hatred of Jews, Blacks and women.

“Conversion”: Presenting images of gays that look like regular folks. “The image must be the icon of normality.”

They say “it makes no difference that the ads are lies” because “we are using them to…counter negative stereotypes that are every bit as much lies.”

This book was written in 1989 and obviously a campaign similar to this has taken effect. Read what the authors say about it:

“By Conversion, we mean something far more profoundly threatening to the American Way of Life [than subversion] …We mean conversion of the average American´s emotions, mind, and will, through a planned psychological attack, in the form of propaganda fed to the nation via the media. We mean…to turn their hatred into warm regard whether they like it or not.” (153)

Thus gays want Americans to learn that something they naturally and justifiably regard as sick, is in fact healthy. Thus Americans will be defenseless to resist their importunities whether in parks, barracks, bathrooms or classrooms.

It is a measure of the authors´ cynicism and self-deception that THEY quote psychologist M. Scott Peck, who in People of the Lie characterizes people who suffer from “malignant” narcissism simply as “evil.”

Evil people, Peck says, have “an unshakable will to be right and will not consider the possibility that they are wrong…Their main weapon, interestingly enough is the lie with which they distort reality to look good to themselves, and to confuse others.” (297)

Gays can continue to fool themselves. But let us not. Some of these people are evil. Their behavior is sick. And it´s contagious.

Well that defense was not much of a defense. I am willing to grant that the queers are as f@cked up as the Mafiosi.

When was Christopher made?

It's not normal, but there are those who believe it is. Before you read the information linked below, have your puke bucket ready:

From GLSEN Encourages Teens In Anal SEX "Don't give up." [Free Republic]:

""Doing it: Gay men...Many people don't know the anus is not only an organ to remove waste. It's very sexually exciteable...Your first few times having anal sex might be a little hard. You may have to practice a bit before it starts feeling really good. I sure did." (pg. 81)"

Buffalo Bob sez, "Excellent article and on point in so many ways. Homosexuality is one of Satan's most important creations, and the one I am sure - he is most proud of."

Gotta agree with your first point Bob. But no way is queerism Satan's most proud achievement. That would be The SCUMBAG and The Hildebeaste.

Just about every reputable psychologist in the world disagrees with the assumption that homosexuality is a perversion.
Yeah, and before the Gay Facists took over that profession, virtually every pcychologist considered it a mental illness. Having been assaulted by one of these monsters as a kid. I can tell you they are bunch of twisted perverted liars. Who are a danger to themselves and anyone who comes in contact with them.

I agree. I'm not an expert or anything, but it seems like much of what shrinks and psychologists deal with could be solved by a liberal (sorry...heavy) application of common sense.

You can only define homosexual behavior as "deviant" if you also define any sexual activity that isn't aimed at producing children as deviant.

Actually, that isn't true. Homosexuality is inherently deviant since it is completely outside of the heterosexual norm.

A lot of the prejudice against gays originated in Biblical times...

Hmmmm, I smell a little whiff of anti-Christian bigotry in the wind.

...when it was imperative to be fruitful and multiply in order to ensure the survival of the tribe, or the species.

Bad news for you, the species still needs to survive.

Any activity that didn't lead to reproduction was bad, because it didn't contribute to the survival of the group.

Actually, that isn't true, activity that God termed an abomination was bad.

These days, when we have too many people crowding the earth...

Oh I see, next you're going to tell us that we all drown because the Earth is warming all because of us. Sorry, but Malthus has been shown to be wrong again and again and...

The [Roman Catholic] Church still officially forbids any kind of birth control, including contraceptives, doesn't it?

Actually, they do permit the Rhythm Method of conception control. If you wish more information on the practices of the Roman Catholic Church, I'm sure there are some Freepers who could supply that for you.

Follow this back to EdReform's link to message 182 on the previous thread. You might want to take a good look at what you're defending.

Sick, sick, sick!

Oh I get it. I wondered why queer agenda articles were appearing on FR with greater and greater frequency. At one point about two weeks ago there were four distinct articles in in the recent posts list when I logged in. I thought I was at QueerRepublic for a second. Anyways I'd just like to let you to know it's not working. We need to start enforcing current anti-sodomy laws, pass new anti-sodomy laws in states which have repealed them, and increase the severity of punishment for these crimes against society. My own feeling is this needs to be a capital crime once again.

The author does his cause no service by appending that mythical, loaded statement to his article.

Do you think some Catholics ignore the Church's injunctions against contraception? Maybe even laugh at them? Do you think?

Perhaps more significantly, is sexual relations using contraception considered "deviant?"
