Keep talking that way Camille and the DNC will take away your membership card.
In general I don't agree with Camille Paglia's liberal politics, but when ever I see her on TV I can't help but like her. Most other feminists are whining shrews. Camille is just the opposite.
Very interesting. Apparently, people do what they want to do - for their own reasons.
"What does a gay guy bring on a second date?
a) Another guy.
"What does a lesbian bring on a second date?"
a) A moving van.
There was an interesting article last week about the possibility that babies may be born gay due to stresses on the fetus effecting brain chemistry prior to birth.
And of course, the homosexual lobby only promotes mandatory gay awareness programs in public schools to promote tolerance. Nothing to do with indoctrination and recruitment, naaah, you have to be born gay, we can't push anyone in that direction. Such BS.
Quite rightly stated.
Actually the very word "homosexual" was coined by a - well, they used to be called "sodomites" and "pederasts", merely words describing their activities - a "sodomite" who wanted a word that would create a sense of special community among fellow sodomy specialists.
It's a word just like "gay".
I use to work for a privately owned company in Palm Springs Ca in the mid 90's the owner bought a Gay Man's Optional Clothing HOtel where he stuck me in oine of the hotel offices..I worked there for 6 months and could not take it any longer, The sexual aggressiveness of these Queer men was unbelievable! they walked up to anybody standing around and asked them to do the wild thing before they even new there name and BAM! they were off...
I was suprised one day they had Asian Days and groups of Japenese men were in Gay Heaven..
Gay Hotels are just little Soddom and Gommorahs...
"... Which brings us to another subject, the furor this past month over a report by psychiatrist Robert Spitzer of Columbia University that, from his rather cursory interviews with 153 men and 47 women, the "reparative therapy" endorsed by conservative Protestant groups can in some cases change sexual orientation from gay to straight. That Spitzer had helped to persuade the American Psychiatric Association to drop the classification of homosexuality as a mental disorder in 1973 makes his current study harder to dismiss.
Nevertheless, screeching gay activists immediately descended on the media to denounce and defame Spitzer as a tool of the far right. This was a good example of the fascist policing of public discourse in this country by nominal liberals who have become as unthinkingly wedded to dogma as any junior member of the Spanish Inquisition. Why should the fluidity of sexual orientation threaten any gay secure in his or her identity?
What gay ideologues, inflated like pink balloons with poststructuralist hot air, can't admit, of course, is that heterosexuality is nature's norm, enforced by powerful hormonal cues at puberty. In the past decade, one shoddy book after another, rapturously applauded by p.c. reviewers, has exaggerated the incidence of homosexuality in the animal world and, without due regard for reproductive adaptations caused by environmental changes, toxins or population pressure, reductively interpreted bonding or hierarchical behavior as gay in the human sense.
Because of the unblushing dishonesty of strident activists and campus "queer theorists," whose general knowledge of science would fit into Marie Antoinette's thimble, we are ironically further from understanding homosexuality than we were in 1970, when popular culture was moving into the seductive gender-bending era typified by the brilliant David Bowie. With the emphasis on external "politics," all respect for psychology has been lost. Did no one notice the grotesquely misogynous dialogue put into gay men's mouths on "Queer as Folk"? That kind of catty aversion to the female body is learned, not inborn, and it can be partly traced to early family relations, before personal memory has even gelled.
My political philosophy as a libertarian says that government has no business intervening in any consensual private behavior. My professional ethic as a thinker and writer, however, says that self-knowledge is our ultimate responsibility. In vicious attacks like the one on Spitzer, gay activists, with all their good intentions, are aligning themselves with the forces of ignorance and repression. Too little reliable work is currently being done in homosexuality because free inquiry cannot be conducted in a politicized atmosphere of harassment and intimidation..."
Oh my, bet you saw more than you'd ever want to see. Oy.
Maybe... but how does that explain Bawney Fwank?
Exactly - and by using the word 'gay', it means falling right into the lobbyists trap of first changing the language to 1. mean something than it originally meant and 2. the creation of a term which looks like it has some type of group status associated with it and therefore legitimacy.
It's for this reason that I absolutely refuse to use the word 'gay' - at least in any kind of sexuality context.
I left after Easter when I witnessed the Egg Hunt and how they hunted for the eggs, by where they put the eggs!
Guess they thought they were Chickens!
I miss the point.
LOL...It's mind boggling, isn't it?
Reading comprehension ain't your long suit, I see.
I believe that a girl born after a older brother has a higher chance of being a tom boy because of the antibodies left in the mother's body. The same thing might affect men born after an older sister. But I think a lot of homosexuality is born of lack of success with the opposite sex and a familiarity with the same sex. Clearly more is involved including earlier experiences. I go with the continuum thing, everyone is on a line from hetero to homo and where you are sometimes gives one side or the other a chance to pull you in. Not genetic, but nevertheless inherent.
This does not mean I want homosexuality to be normalized, on the contrary, I would like to see it totally underground and given as many chances to disappear as possible.
I believe Ann Heche used to be Ellen DeGeneres' "girlfriend," but then married a man.
So she seems to have changed her mind . . .
