LONDON, September 10, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A British homosexual journalist admits that his documentary on the London gay scene is likely to "burn every bridge in the gay world I've got."
Simon Fanshawe is a writer and broadcaster who created the documentary "The Trouble With Gay Men" after becoming increasingly alarmed at the shallowness and destructiveness of the "gay lifestyle." The film, made for BBC 3 television, questions the emotional and psychological immaturity, narcissism, nihilism and self-destructive tendencies of many in the homosexual community. Fanshawe says he wants homosexual men to "grow up" and get beyond their state of "extended adolescence."
Fanshawe, who was involved in the early homosexualist political movement, says, "We've fought discrimination and prejudice, only to wreck ourselves with drugs and wild sex."
In his documentary Fanshawe admits that the homosexualist movement has in the main achieved its political goals of equalising homosexuality with natural sexual relations, in abolishing laws against sodomy and creating legal equivalency with marriage and adoption. Given these achievements, Fanshawe asks, "Why do we seem hell bent on behaving like eternal teenagers?"
"We're hooked on vanity, and regard older men with contempt. Despite AIDS we're still chasing the ultimate sexual high and what's more are determined to wreck ourselves on designer drugs. We're happy to assist the straight world in keeping alive the image of all gay men as limp-wristed queens."
He says that he has recently "started to worry" about the ways in which "gay liberation is celebrated" in his hometown of Brighton, a major centre of the homosexual subculture. At the annual "Mr. Gay" beauty pageant, which he describes as a "pathetic display of self-delusion", Fanshawe tells a contestant, "I'm old enough to remember when all those women were fighting against Miss World...What we're all saying about ourselves is that actually to be really gay, properly gay, what you've got to be is cute, and young."
"Extreme vanity" he says, has been "sewn into gay culture." It "is now so mainstream in the gay community that otherwise intelligent young men are happy to be treated as sex objects on a demeaning meat rack."
Gay men, he says, are so "hardwired" towards finding casual sexual encounters, some going as far as plastic implants to enhance their appearance, that finding genuine intimacy is "practically impossible."
"Vast amounts of our leisure time are organised around sex, straight or gay. But what gay men have done is organise our identity around sex. And that is corrosive. And to make things worse, promiscuity has become the norm."
The documentarian asks the proprietor of a gay sex bath house, "Paul", who had just related some graphic stories of group sexual encounters in the establishment, "Are we just swimming around in a sewer which we're just sort of saying is normal?"
For objecting to the lifestyle of pursuing casual and "extreme" sex and for holding genuine human intimacy as a goal, Paul told Fanshawe that he is "the closest thing to a straight person in a gay man's body I have ever met. There should be an operation for you, dear."
Paul was adamant and forthright in his belief that the gay lifestyle is incompatible with happiness and fidelity in human relations, expressing his dissatisfaction with civil unions legislation. "The temptation of other things will always stand in the way of two gay men having a long-term, loving, caring relationship."
Fanshawe says he is horrified at the lack of emotional involvement and at the willingness of men to engage in "unsafe sex." The film includes statistics that show the deadly consequences of the homosexual lifestyle. One in nine gay men in London is HIV infected and new cases of HIV have doubled in the city in five years. Incidences of syphilis have increased in the same time period 616 per cent.
"Unsafe" sex, he says, is not the only way in which gay men are self destructive. "If there's a new drug, gay men will find it and take it," he states.
At one point Fanshawe interviews a homosexual man who has "done all the drugs" and now campaigns in gay clubs against the growing use of crystal methamphetamine. The man, who could not be identified for fear of reprisals from drug dealers, said that crystal meth is preferred in the gay community because it reduces the inhibitions and allows sex to be brought to an "animalistic" level "devoid of emotion." The film says that one in five gay men in London use crystal meth.

Yes finally! I swear it is frustrating, people are so deceived on this issue. I could go on and on about it.
Alternate title: “Being Andrew Sullivan.”
I have several friends who are homosexual - they are the most unhappy people I know. They pretend they’re happy, but I can see the sadness inside of them. I pray for them & try to be a friend to them, but have made it clear that I don’t want to hear about the things they do. It’s very disturbing and pathetic.
Almost all of them have fathers that were absent at key times in their childhood - it’s like there’s a developmental phase that they never achieved & it’s haunting them for the rest of their lives.
Exactly! That is the thing that is very offensive. Responsible adult heterosexuals have a lot else going on in their world besides the fact that they have sex. But the politics of homosexuality acts as though the sexual dimension of their society is the only thing that matters.
How do you know you’re at a gay barbeque?
Documentarian Simon Fanshawe can certainly expect to receive rave reviews, be lionized on campus, and win as many awards as Michael Moore. Well, almost.
The segment of homosexuals who live long term monogamous relationships, is not living the lifestyle this guy describes. The public activist types who are on the prowl are.
All granting these activists a right to marriage will accomplish, is to destroy the concept of marriage.
Already in California, the marriage licenses refer to party a and party b. That’s what homosexual marriage will achieve across the board. Not no. Hell no!
All the hot dogs taste like sh@t.
Homosexuality has always been about narcissism. They want to have sex with someone just like themselves. And with the mainstreaming of homosexuality, they add to that the Look at me! I'm different! I'm special! factor.
Thank you for the post. We have added the link to our site:
The stories my wife tells me about homosexuals is freaking unbelievable.
She’s an ER nurse in one of the largest gay communities in the nation.
The stuff they do to themselves and the ensuing CONTAGIOUS medical disasters is scary.
I am the farthest thing from a gay basher, but this filmmaker has hit the nail on the head.
Oh the shock! I’m SO surprised! I NEVER had any inkling of this...not in a MILLION years!!!
Maybe Gay Marraige would be like Straight Marraige and lead to less sex
Seriously, though, what kind of blinding flash of the obvious is this? Homos are solely defined by their sexual preferences--that's the only true difference between them and normal people. How else would they organize their identities?
“The segment of homosexuals who live long term monogamous relationships”
I’ve met a few who do. But, I’ve met a lot more who don’t (unless you count a 5 minute tryst in a bath house as a long term relationship).
I’ve met homosexuals in long term relationships and they still have plenty of additional 5 minutes trysts.
What nail head was missed though is that that excessive self-sexual indulgence to and past the point of constant self-degradation is intrinsic to male homosexual sex. When it doesn’t happen to a person — that’s the rare case, that’s the very uncommon exceptional case. That is what the bathhouse boss knew too, for he said it.
This is Britain. He should expect to be soon charged with violating someone's civil rights for having spoken the truth. Watch. Wait. It will happen.
I know what you mean. I don’t know how to estimate the numbers. One segment is very loud and visual, and the other is for the most part reserved and embarrassed by the other segment.
In truth, many homosexuals have terrible health and psychological problems generally unrelated to their sexuality at all. Often they assume that these are interrelated with their sexuality, but they aren’t.
Because psychological problems are complex, it is easier to just point out the statistically much higher rate homosexuals have of serious physical problems than do the population as a whole. Birth defects, neurological diseases, genetic disorders, severe acute and chronic health problems unrelated to sex at all.
But add to these the fairly ordinary statistics of mental illness, and you will find much higher incidence of clinical depression (the #1 mental illness), schizophrenia, manic depression, bipolar disorder, and assorted neuroses. Often they assume that these are related to their sexuality, but in many cases they are not.
This does mean that their efforts to rationalize them to their lifestyle or keeping them “in the community” is asking for problems, as it would for anyone not having proper health care.
When I read this I thought of Lucifer who was totally in love with himself. These men, in particular, are SO in love with themselves (though shalt not make a graven image of Me) that they can’t have sex with the opposite sex because it doesn’t reflect the image of themselves.
I definitely consider homosexuality as being demon possessed.
Wow! who knew?
And the sun rises in the east and water is wet.
Who woulda thunk it?
Of interest to HIV/AIDS and gay lifestyle
Makes one kind of wonder what exactly influences someone to become gay.
Good luck. Homosexuality is little more than arrested sexual development. Everyone goes through a phase of it, but when they develop normally, it subsides and heterosexual interest replaces it. If the development is halted before the homosexual inclinations are resolved, it remains -- pathologically.
Queers are not much more than overgrown children ... at least sexually. It's no surprise that their other behavior would reflect childish values -- irresonsibility, narcissism, megalomania, incomplete emotional bonding, etc..
"Extreme vanity" he says, has been "sewn into gay culture."
There is a reason that every religion abominates "pride" itself as a sin. It has nothing to do with "intolerance" or "homophobia"--it's just that narcissism is corrosive to the soul (or the psyche, if you prefer). And group narcissism is even worse.
As a 50-year-old, white, heterosexual father, and recently unemployed, I couldn't have made the point any simpler, except to say, "Why should I care?"
That's a good and I think, accurate, assessment. I've thought the same of child molesters, that they are stuck in their young teen years but that doesn't explain to me how anyone could be sexually attracted to infants and I've wondered about that.
If there was a heterosexual that was as obsessed about sex as homosexual men are, they would probably been locked up by now.
BJ Klintoon comes to mind.
I wish you Godspeed in finding gainful employment for your financial and mental health.
hmmmm .... should have been locked up by now....
PING = later ref
This will be widely attacked and discredited. Heaven forbid an honest portrayal of this lifestyle.
At this point, the only people who can credibly criticize the homosexual lifestyle are homosexuals themselves. The rest of us are too easily dismissed as haters, bigots, etc., etc. This guy has performed a service in making this film, but I wonder how much publicity it will receive. Will college kids learn about it? I doubt it.
Mark my words:
Just because you’re gay doesn’t mean you need to hang around with other gay people. It is because of this self-ghettoization that the open-sewer that is the “gay lifestyle” has come into being.
Nip those collectivist impulses in the bud and STAY WHO YOU ARE. You shouldn’t feel alienated because all of your friends are straight; they’re your friends, and what kind of asshole would you be if you dumped them (for a bunch of flamers) just because they were straight?
Well, now that you mention it...
Actually, when the whole gay-marriage thing was kicking off years ago, there were gays who frankly admitted that marriage was the last thing they were interested in since it would cramp their style (so to speak). Their objections were dampened somewhat by the assurance that with “no-fault divorce”, they could get out fairly easily when something “better” came along.
If you agree that the following needs to be exposed and investigated, please consider joining the RETHINKING AIDS PING LIST.
AIDS is the biggest public health scam in medical history. Like global warming, AIDS is being used to push a powerful leftist political agenda. For over two decades the Public Health Establishment has used your tax dollars and the full power of the federal government to wage a massive propaganda (and intimidation) campaign designed to:
(A) prevent the American public from hearing the scientific evidence that suggests HIV may not cause AIDS
Every single point above can be documented on my profile page.
