A federal court recently ruled that California’s gay marriage Proposition 8 is unconstitutional. That’s the right decision. However, I’m worried that by pushing this right now, all gay rights folks are doing is making working class and middle class Whites vote Republican.
I support gay marriage 100%, FWIW. I don’t dig male homosexuality too much, but believe me, I respect the guys who I feel it is truly their nature. About 4% of men are basically gay. There is nothing they should do about it, and they should not try to be straight. I support their orientation completely, and they can go ahead and have as fun a sex life as they like. I actually envy them because they get laid so much and it’s such a free and easy sexual atmosphere. Women are such a hassle sex-wise.
Bisexuality is different, but if there are guys who are as turned on by guys as they are by women, wow, I would have a hard time turning that down myself. I don’t do that stuff not so much due to moral reasons, but mostly because I’m simply barely interested and mostly disgusted by the idea.
Lesbians, who cares? I actual support gay campaigns, mostly around this gay marriage thing. I used to give money for AIDS research. I support the normative gay political agenda, pretty much in its entirety.
Where I part company with them is on situational homosexuality, normalization of situational homosexuality, gay pride parades which are public displays of depravity, sex in public and public restrooms, and other outrages.
Plus I don’t really want these guys around me, though I do have one friend who is gay. I don’t like them around me because they won’t stop trying to have sex with me, and they are continuing to do this to this very day. A very good looking 26 year old man was recently after me. I wish beautiful 26 year old women were as available at my age!
I used to know this guy named Al Renner. We worked for California NORML on the pot campaign back in the 1980’s. He was gay, but he totally respected me for being straight (I guess he assumed I was) and he never made moves on me or anything. I have the utmost respect for that man. Plus he was totally committed to pot, so I respected him for that. A real committed political activist. We never discussed his gay shit. We just talked about pot and dope.
