Society Becomes Stranger and Stranger (left wing activists seek to avoid "couple-ism")
The Christian Civic League of Maine ^ | 10/25/05

Posted on 10/25/2005 1:58:57 PM PDT by dukeman

Society Becomes Stranger and Stranger

Tragically, many psychologists and sociologists have noted that even in same-sex “marriages,” both partners take on heterosexual gender roles. That is, one person will play a female role and the other will play a male role. Some members of the gay community have denounced this imitation of heterosexual marriage by inventing a new term. The new term for the phenomenon to be avoided is called “couple-ism.”

Since marriage is thought to be an outmoded “patriarchal” institution, taking on gender roles within a same-sex marriage is to be avoided. In other words, same-sex marriage is good as long as it is not like real marriage, which is bad, because it is patriarchal and oppressive and involves sex roles.

In the words of one radical activist: “I was blind to racism, ageism, sexism, couple-ism, and in general, all of the ways that people are oppressed…”

The invention of a new term to describe a hitherto unknown phenomenon shows that society is becoming increasingly confused with regard to sexual morality.

It is not "society" which is confused -- at least not all of it.

I wouldn't say "society" is getting confused. We definitely have some confused nutcases that just have no concept of values.

Homosexuality is a PERVERTED imitation of a heterosexual relationship - except the parts don't fit together and the interchangeable roles don't work either.

Exactly. This is no small point. As long as blanket statements like this are tossed around in the marketplace of ideas, the deviants are having their way. Goebbels cheers from his grave, figuratively speaking.

No sense of fun.

Imagine the argument if the pro same sex marriage crowd said "Do you know what? We can work with the idea of a husband and a wife in a marriage. We want to pick who gets to be the wife."

It may not win anyone over, but it would show that they don't require heterosexual marriages to compromise or change as much.

Plus humor helps to bridge gaps.

I'm not sure I'm following this exactly. As I understand it, couple-ism is bad because it is oppressive like a real marriage because one of the queers is "the woman"? And by "the woman" they mean he has to do the dishes and vacuum the rug?

Queers are so funny ... I'm surprised all of our sitcoms aren't Will and Grace.

These people are seriously mentally and spiritually ill and if allowed to, they will destroy our country, and any other counrties they infect. Their phantasmagorical psychotic world view needs to be shut up, tied up, stuffed in the closet, and defeated in every way. Unfortunately many of these sick fools teach in institutions of higher learning and are infecting young people with this poison.

In Sylvia Browne's Book of paranormal definitions she has lots to say about the DARK SIDE. The dark side is in those who have turned their backs on God. Those affected persons seek to destroy the light in everyone else around them. The Dark Side can't exist in the light and so it needs to extinguish all light in order to survive.

This is the GLBT agenda - to destroy all normalcy so that they can live happily ever after, in public, without recrimination and without negative feedback.

I'm just trying to figure out why the word "tragically" is in this sentence. Is it tragic that scientists have noted this phenomenom? Is it tragic that "even" in same-sex marriages the partners take on gender roles (this implies that it's equally tragic in heterosexual marriages), or is it tragic that same-sex couples take on these roles (which hardly seems to matter--once you have a same-sex couple, who cares which one's on the bottom or doing the dishes).

But they cannot, even within their own communities. These are the folks from whom we have the term *drama queen*. They are never happy. Nothing lasts forever. *Public* is where they parade their hysteria. They are full of recrimination for each other and unsolicited negative feedback.

I have known many of both biological genders, back forty years ago and right this moment. Not one is stable. Relationships I once thought of as * old marrieds* turn out to be full of insecurity and fraud.

It is truly sad what these lifestyles do to people. It is just like the worst cases of heterosexual spousal abuse.

How foolish of me to waste 10 years of my life playing the "role" of the "patriarchal and oppressive" husband. I didn't realize that I was doing something so wrong, especially at sex, as treating my wife like a wife.

Consider me repentant.

Next phase of the homosexual agenda - rid the world of "couples". They've destroyed so many good English words by their deceiptful lifestyle - "gay" used to mean fun loving, "rainbow" used to be a symbol from God that He would never inlict another flood ... now "couple" must be banished, according to their agenda. Where does it end?

I once emailed Camile Paglia and asked her her thoughts on why homosexual men, who supposedly were not attracted to women, went ga-ga over men who looked like women (both in their natural state and those in drag). And why the drag queen who could most exaggerate feminine traits was considered the most attractive by homosexual men (who supposedly weren't attracted to women)?

At the same time, lesbian couples also often clearly have one playing the male and one playing the female role. Not only in appearance, but in multiple dimensions of their relationship.

I asked her if this suggested that homosexuality was a coping mechanism for some inability to be in a heterosexual relationship, even to the point of recreating heterosexual dynamics in same sex couples.

I also wondered if, anthropologically and sociologically speaking, she thought maybe this (homosexual couples recreating the male and female relationship dynamics, even down to outward appearances, in their relationships) suggested a male/female relationship was the natural norm--even like a relationship "set point" that human biology consistently strives to attain.

She replied in her column with some meandering answer about homosexual men and ignored the questions about lesbians altogether.

Yes, the reason it is never enough is that no amount of societal "approval" or "empowerment" or "normalization" is going to convince most down in their souls that their behavior is, in fact, normal.

If they were convinced it was normal and right, they wouldn't obsess over whether anyone else agreed with them.

When I'm convinced that I am doing the morally right thing, I don't feel the need to seek the approval of others--not to mention not an entire society---for me to feel comfortable doing the morally right thing.

No one seeks society's stamp of approval for their private behavior unless they feel they have something to prove---to THEMSELVES.

So now the truth is out. Not even happy now, where they are close to having the "marriage" option. I guess that's really not what they want after all. They see something precious beyond words and realize themselves that they would only be a fraud to it. It is what it is and been like that since it was introduced and in everyone's mind since ???? And what it is and what they want it to be are not the same. AND THEN, they also know that once it is destroyed by them, well then, they don't get those whatever they percieve as marriage "perks", because, well, they just "changed" it, destroyed its meaning, and IT AIN'T IT no mo. Its a fraudulent imitation, all around.

God help them, it must be their mother issues. Or father issues. Something bad has had to have happened to these people when they were young, because how else do you explain how someone could become so confused with their social identity and not be able to accept their gender assignment?

I have two sons, 18 and 22, and I would kill myself if it could be determined that my behaviour made them gay. (They aren't and no, I wouldn't go there, but I would surely feel compelled to enter a convent and say the rosary 24-7 to cancel the sin and get things back right)

Well, yeah. SSAD in men is precipitated by a homosexual molestation or seduction in the pre-adult years.
