I’ve gathered here some of the most important points criticizing liberal ideology to normalize homosexuality. I’ve gathered them in this page, because I tend to debate this issue on the Internet with a certain frequency.
- What is the homosexuality agenda?
The homosexuality agenda is the political and cultural movement to normalize homosexuality in every aspect of society, by systematically lying about its etiology and consequences, and to criminalize any questioning, differing viewpoints, and objections of said homosexuality agenda. As such, the goal of people with a homosexuality agenda is not only to silence dissent but to paint decent thinking as evil and to malign and slander the character of all conservatives who have a moral and healthy understanding of human sexuality. Thought crime is the goal.
The main tool of people with a homosexual agenda is propaganda, i.e., constantly spreading myths, misinformation, and downright lies, and promoting perverted and dysfunctional attitudes about sexuality. Concomitantly, they move to cover up and silence every single case and collective action of LGBTs and their supporters perpetrating harm and violence in society. Thus, within homosexual propaganda, “gays” are painted as downtrodden victims, masking the millions acts of violence and other egregious behaviors they engage in. This violence and harm include, but are not limited to: the destruction of marriage, trafficking, prostitution, promiscuity, sexual harassment, abuse, molestation, murder, assault, battering, bullying, fake hate crimes, porn, degradation of human sexuality, attack on social conservatives in all spheres of life (professional, political, personal, business), trampling on fundamental rights (speech, religion, conscience), character assassination, persecution, discrimination, spreading of STDs, S&M, violation of children’s rights to heterosexual parents, and censorship of research and debate. Most of these harmful actions are perpetrated with impunity, if not downright support from liberals and others promoting homosexuality as normal. Moreover, the violence LGBT individuals perpetrate is often blamed and projected on conservatives, i.e., the false stereotype of who does violence to “gays”. In truth, it is LGBTs themselves, by millions of cases compared to a handful of incidents by conservatives, who are violent to LGBTs.
Another part of the propaganda involves conducting irresponsible and corrupt research and academic content regarding homosexuality, used as a means to legitimize the agenda in legal, medical, and academic circles, as well as to give a false wrapping of “scientific authority” to liberal political ideology.
The homosexual agenda (ridiculously called “gay rights movement” and other such euphemistic terms) is part of a larger liberal agenda regarding sexuality and personal behaviors (including the endorsement of promiscuity, hook-ups, perverse and perverted attitudes and behaviors related to sex, porn, adultery, abortion, destruction of traditional marriage, STD epidemics, etc.). Do not confuse the term “(homo)sexuality” with “(homo) sexual orientation. They are not the same.
Homosexuality is about sexual attitudes, values, attractions, repulsions, concepts and interpretations about sexuality, power and domination or subjection dynamics relating to the sexual other, affection or objectification of the sexual other, admiration or disrespect related to the sexual object,conscious and unconscious feelings related to self or other which shapes or deforms relation and sexual feelings towards other, obsessions and distortions, projections, fantasies, dysfunctions, traumas, impacts from social conditioning, problems with masculinity or femininity, problems with personal history and fundamental caretakers, etc. that will result in the sexualization of someone of the same sex and a hindering of the normal sexualization of someone of the opposite sex.
Society needs to be concerned about homosexuality, not homosexual orientation. Homosexual attraction or desire is only a mere product of myriad configurations of these aforementioned dysfunctional
psycho-social dynamics. There is nothing normal about homosexuality and no one is born homosexual. It is perverted and dysfunctional and the best a person with a homosexual problem can do is to seek to treat the underlying reasons that produce such a perverted way of thinking and feeling about same-sex people, which for homosexuals comes accompanied by a deformed way of thinking about opposite-sex people too.
2. On using the words “a homosexual”
The problem I see with using “a homosexual” is that it has an essentialist, inborn, or biological determination connotation to it that is the opposite of reality.
This is why I often prefer using “individual with a homosexual problem,” since no one is born with a homosexual problem.
This means in “liberalspeak” that no one is born a homosexual, no one is born gay, no one “is gay” in the biologically determined sense, and homosexuality or gayness or homosexual sexual orientation are not inborn.
Homosexuals are not “being themselves.” They are being themselves with a homosexual problem. Resolve the problem and they are heterosexuals being who they are.
3. Why have so many people normalized homosexuality?
People who have a need to normalize homosexuality tend to have a sexuality ideology that understands sexuality (including homosexuality) in very ignorant ways, including very stereotypical concepts. One of these stereotypical memes that has been repeated ad nauseum for a couple of decades now is the “homosexuals just want to love each other.”
Perhaps this is the most common stereotype I see in the minds of people who normalize homosexuality. People with a homosexual problem are portrayed as being all the same, not having any psycho-sexual problems, and the sexualization of another person (of the same sex) gets transformed into an action of “love.”
This is a grotesque deformation, because sexual desire does not and has never equaled love. Thus, I also see people who have a need to normalize homosexuality as having an extreme need to romanticize sexual desire itself and to romanticize homosexuals.
This is in light of the fact that people who normalize homosexuality most often use a defining concept of sexual orientation to mean sexual attraction, not any feeling that represents love.
It is clear that this “homosexuals just want to love” stereotype hides a key problem with reality: any and all issues concerning unethical or harmful sexuality attitudes and behaviors that are produced in the minds of a great number of homosexuals. Given that someone with a homosexual problem may sexualize another person due to having a complex set of harmful or unresolved psycho-sexual problems, which may also produce egregious or violent behavior towards others, there is as much truth in saying that “homosexuals just want to love each other,” as there is in saying “homosexuals just want to sexually harass, bully, and batter others.” Yet, for people who normalize homosexuality, it’s the first stereotype that must be repeatedly enforced. People who normalize homosexuality display a profound need to whitewash reality.
This embellishment of the problems with LGBT individuals is accompanied by a much larger general attitude of always lying by omission or trivializing harmful or violent attitudes and behaviors related to sexuality and personal relationships in society, especially in popular discourse.
One key profile of people who normalize homosexuality are people who are quite ignorant of such problems. Their life experience is one of extreme privilege (not at all necessarily tied to high income). They personally never or hardly ever see or have much personal contact with such issues. Therefore these issues basically do not appear on their emotional radar screen. They have absolutely no emotional salience to them.
At the same time that they have this insensitive and in-denial profile, the idea that someone would be prevented from getting their sexual kicks strikes as them as horribly repressive – not only concerning homosexuality but regarding most other sexual kicks as well (with basically children being the only thing off-limits). Given that a lot of people who normalize homosexuality are heterosexual and they believe they must get their sexuality kicks – no matter how harmful or irresponsible or dysfunctional these kicks may be – there is an identification with the idea that if this stereotypical homosexual is not being allowed to get their kicks, they are suffering the same terrible imposition.
Obviously, an obligatory accompanying and consequent idea to the above is that anyone who does not normalize homosexuality must be a bad person out to repress “love.” Therefore, we see people who normalize homosexuality doing all this hand wringing and having crisis after crisis of despair about how unjust and evil it is not to accept and glorify homosexuality. They must go on a sexuality crusade to right this horrible wrong. This is what I call the “Don Quixote” attitude to normalizing homosexuality.
The other interesting characteristic of most people who normalize homosexuality is their own attitude to their views on human sexuality. Most of them see themselves as great authorities on sexuality, no matter how ignorant they are on the subject or any related subject that intersects the realm of sexuality (psychology, anthropology, sociology, biology, political science, history).
We don’t see this same kind of arrogant attitude concerning a variety of other subjects (such as astrophysics, for example). It’s rare to see a person who is quite ignorant on physics to claim they are experts on the subject, but when it comes to sexuality, everyone considers themselves not only an expert, but the expert. I would say this is probably due to the profound emotional salience of the topic of sexuality and that fact that, somehow or another, sexuality is always part of an individual’s own life experience. Everyone has a set of feelings, attitudes, and opinions – but mostly everyone nowadays believes their sexual ideology is the utmost authoritative body of everything there is to know and to believe.
Another harmful consequence of the stereotype “homosexuals just want to love each other” is that it conveys the idea that people with a homosexual psychology only interact with other homosexuals, thus the “love each other.” People who normalize homosexuality usually fight against acknowledging that homosexuals also harass and abuse heterosexuals (of all ages).
For most people who normalize homosexuality, there is also a desperate need to equate homosexuality to heterosexuality and to repeatedly state that homosexuals are exactly the same as heterosexuals. That argument is made when homosexual agenda proponents are falsely insisting that there is nothing wrong with homosexuality and that it is in-born. However, when the subject turns to problems with sexual behavior, relationships, violence, etc., quite often, the meme changes and, all of a sudden, homosexuals are no longer “just like heterosexuals” – then they are different. That’s when we hear things like “the majority of sexual abusers are heterosexual” – implying that homosexuals sexually abuse less. The opposite is also true. Every study that shows differences and every testimony that presents a difference where homosexuals or bisexuals are worse than heterosexuals must be attacked and brushed away from consciousness and cannot be acknowledged. No matter how incorrect the conventional liberal teaching that the harm that homosexuals and bisexuals (along with all other liberals) do is trivial, it is the only narrative that appeals to them.
In a nutshell, no matter how much harm is done to people victims of LGBT perpetrators, it is all trivial, nothing to fret about. Nothing happens that is bad in the world, much less horrible, which is the responsibility of LGBT individuals. For the Don Quixotes of homosexuality, reality is just like the sitcoms they watch on TV – all the gays are nice.
Another common characteristic of people who normalize homosexuality is that they are often quite comfortable with (or largely indifferent to) various mass problems involving sexuality or relationships in society (promiscuity, abortion, adultery, rape, sexual harassment, domestic violence, sexual child abuse, etc). Many do the lip service speech against it, but we can see that overall they are never really bothered nor outraged about these problems, nor do they concretely do anything about it, from a political or professional perspective. It’s what I call a Marie-Antoinettish attitude to sexuality.
Overall, most people I have seen who normalize homosexuality have this curious mix of Marie Antoinettish and Don Quixotish sexuality attitudes and views.
Thus I conclude that normalizing homosexuality clearly reflects a desire by individuals to normalize a much larger irresponsible and ignorant set of attitudes, views, and behaviors related to sexuality and behaviors.
4. The problematic attitudes of young people who have been mostly indoctrinated by the liberal public school system and the media/entertainment industry regarding liberal views of sexuality, including normalizing homosexuality.
Turmarion wrote: “straight friends who know them [youngsters with a homosexual problem] see that they are in no apparent way harbingers of the apocalypse, and have lives not really any messier than those of straight people these days; therefore they’re going to be increasingly inclined, not to say, “You’re sinners, but I still love you,”, but instead, “Maybe the conventional teaching about the evils and horrors of gays just isn’t correct.”
In other words, young people are told that they need to base their knowledge of reality on what their friends tell them about themselves. And they should decide what is right or wrong based on navel-gazing, self-centered interests, and their own privileged world bubble. Being completely irresponsible, uninformed and misinformed, but thinking they know it all is exactly where most of them are.
These young people are going to compare gay porn to straight porn and say, “Well, where is the problem? How can I criticize homosexual porn if I don’t have enough neurons to criticize all other kinds of porn?”
Anything goes, and because I feel like doing it, it must be warranted. I don’t have to take responsibility for any psychological dysfunctions regarding relationships and sexuality, why should people with a homosexuality problem? Everyone and everything is normal. Questioning MTV is a really bad idea. If people are doing harm thanks to the liberal ideas about sexuality that I am spreading, it’s not my problem. Because I don’t even recognize the harm. And who says that harm in the area of relationships and sexuality is a problem? It’s so much easier to simply be in denial and think of myself as being good exactly because I’m so comfortably blind. All my friends think this way. That means I’m right. People with information about harm, dysfunction, abuse, exploitation, harassment, that’s all wrong, that’s a bunch of nonsense, all these exaggerated evils. These things don’t really happen in reality, and when they do, it has NOTHING to do with the way I think or behave. I’m never responsible for anything. And if I ever am, well, it’s no big deal, because I’m normal. So is everyone else. The APA said so. That’s Science. And Science is NEVER wrong.
5. Savage capitalism and normalization of homosexuality
In a response to Joseph Bottum’s pitiful promotion of homosexual marriage as a good thing for a Catholic to adopt, Mattias Caro says:
“Catholics have largely abandoned these issue (marriage, divorce, porn, etc.) in the public square and have thus left these debates for the pews, if they ever occur at all. And sadly, Catholics show little difference from their secular brethren on these issues. ”
America has become and continues to become increasingly liberalized (regarding social mores). Therefore conflating the spheres of capitalism/foreign policy with issues of the “culture wars” (family, relationships, sex/sexuality) creates confusion. Not that they aren’t entangled on many levels and deeply influence each other. But it’s plain to see that religious people, especially Christians/Catholics/Jews in the US are becoming enormously liberal, which also includes a good deal of Republicans. The Right is becoming more and more left (as in liberal). In a way, for many, it’s just a mask that’s coming off. Many Republicans and WASPS were never socially conservative in their hearts or personal lives, they just went along with putting on a conservative performance, because social constraints required it (adultery, porn, prostitution, homosexuality, etc).
Many countries with a past communist/socialist system continue to uphold good traditional values, while the US is destroying the remains of its socially conservative society with a fierceness that one could never have foreseen a few decades ago. I think liberalism is very capitalist (as in savage capitalism/profit above morality/ and extreme egoism/narcissism) and very destructive, because it attacks the most fundamental structures of society: the personal realm, what holds society together. I find it very ironic that, post-cold war, while the US drives itself into the ditch, Putin stands firm to defend his society from this homosexuality agenda crap.
There are some old guard conservatives that informally label liberals as “Marxists/commies,” even when they are talking about culture wars families/relationships issues. Now that becomes untenable in today’s world. “Liberal,” yes, “left-winger,” yes, but in the US the majority of Americans who support and promote homosexuality, porn, and sex outside marriage are not even remotely Marxist – they are staunch, obnoxious capitalists, usually younger (but also their parents), materialistic types, who will support uncritically a deranged and out-of-control military-industrial complex, if that means they can get their hands on the latest iPhone. These are the younger emblem of capitalism today.
I have given a lot of thought to the question of why have so many people normalized homosexuality so quickly and so fiercely in the US, and recently I came across another observation that was right on target, that I hadn’t thought about. Josh Bishop/http://joshbishopwrites.com/. He wrote:
“I think @Benjamin Marsh is dead-on when he points to how our porn-saturated culture is impacting our views on gay marriage and, more broadly, on homosexuality. I think the gay marriage debate is benefiting from the nature and availability of today’s pornography — so different, as we’re often told, from previous generations’ “Playboy in dad’s dresser drawer” experience of pornography…. I absolutely agree that porn culture has made gay sex more palatable/tolerable than it would have been a generation ago.”
