A message to straight men

Timothy Kincaid

August 23rd, 2012

The fight for gay marriage is, in reality, a fight for all of our rights. Without it, we will turn back the sexual revolution and return to an earlier, puritanical time. Today, in every instance of sexual rights falling under attack, you’ll find legislation forced into place by people who practice discrimination disguised as religious freedom. Their goal is to dehumanize everyone’s sexuality and reduce us to using sex for the sole purpose of perpetuating our species. To that end, they will criminalize your entire sex life.

Absurd, this is a slippery slope. The religious people would NEVER attack straight people, because they are the majority. The only sexuality the religious will accept is heterosexuality, straight people will in the end be fine.

A person’s sex life is in private, which is uncontrollable. The only reason that religious people are opposing is against public policy “promoting” things that they don’t agree with.

Ian, you left out the quotes around “agree.”

A good many of my gay male friends, have straight women friends.
Very hot, beautiful and talented straight women friends.

Straight men, who crusade as if gay men are utterly isolated from women, or who are that hostile and don’t want to be friends with gay men, haven’t figured out the strategy too well in men/women relationships.
Gay men are no threat to their marriages, and gay men could well introduce them to the women they spend the rest of their lives with.

So why would faith communities want to force mixed orientation marriages and have straight men compete WITH gay men for those women?

I just argued with some people on my theory (more proven right actually), that homosexuality, in not just reducing the risk of overpopulation, but are the tempering factor between men and women.
A factor that religions mostly artificially keep at extremes.
And therefore put females and gender attraction variant at risk.
Women are brutalized in our country and globally.
So when I ask the people over at NOM’s website, why it’s like that between the ‘two great halves of humanity’, they can’t give any answer that engages that possibility.

They stick to the Script, so to speak.
But there are some women that know exactly what I mean when I say that gay people provide ALL the intellectual, spiritual, emotional and social benefits, with NONE of the sometimes physically threatening sexual tension.
Which for a lot of us, is a way of not being distracted too much.

I figured this out when I was a little girl.
It boggles my mind that grown assed people RESIST even talking about that right out of hand.
Such intellectual cowardice. And nobody has time for it.
Nobody.

Regan as I’m sure you know, in North American native societies gays were seen as a bridge between the sexes just as you’ve observed here.

It’s hard for a straight woman to have a close platonic friendship with a straight man. Even if nothing is going on, potential dates get suspicious.

Priya, in fact…you are right. And in some cultures, such an attribute was mystical.
But not considered evil or threatening or anything to be eradicated.
Cultures who accepted homosexuality and the gender variant, didn’t implode or self destruct because of it (as the anti gay LOVE to lie about that), they were forced to change that or suffer destruction by more powerful cultures that didn’t accept it.

Gee, no surprise that such sentiment and non acceptance is STILL dangerous and threatening.
Even to children.
