Homosexual Hordes

GLEN COVE, NY — Homosexuals are everywhere, organized, and politically effective. The conventional wisdom is that, until a generation or two ago, there were just as many homosexuals but they were secret ones. Under this theory, more enlightened tolerance allowed them to assert themselves and demand acceptance. The problem with this conventional wisdom is that it offers no explanation of the mechanism by which the greater tolerance of homosexuality arose.

A more probable theory is that the numbers increased, bringing about increased familiarity with homosexuals and increased political pressure to bestow public approval on their conduct.

Sex has two purposes: to unite two people and to procreate. These two purposes are intended to be encompassed in the single act. Homosexuality violates the second purpose. If the public imagination accepts the separation of the two purposes, then people will be more inclined to behave accordingly. If procreation is not part of the process of uniting two people in a sex act, people could lose their reason for confining their choice of a partner to the opposite sex.

Between the two World Wars, Protestants abandoned traditional morality and embraced contraception. They justified this decision on the basis that it would free women from childbearing. Instead, what it did was to rob women of half of the psychological component of sex.

This development, however, did not end the process. The late twentieth century brought us children without sex. Babies could be manufactured in laboratories, even be implanted in the wombs of virgins. Lesbians could have children with anonymous fathers. Homosexuals could have babies without ever physically touching the mother. The separation of the two purposes of sex was complete.

The common understanding did not change overnight. Gradually, however, especially in sophisticated circles, people began to regard babies and sexual pleasure as unrelated. Furthermore, they began to think of sexual pleasure as unrelated to a lasting union, especially one intended for the healthy raising and education of children.

Once this groundwork was laid, these sophisticated people began to think of homosexuality as just another preference, like denim or silk, or short skirts or jumpsuits. As the natural barrier between homosexuality and heterosexuality began to be dismantled, an industry arose to teach people how to have “good” sex. Psychiatrist Thomas Szasz explained that this was nonsense, like trying to teach people who liked vanilla ice cream to like chocolate ice cream instead [Sex by Prescription: The Startling Truth about Today’s Sex Therapy. Syracuse, New York: Syracuse University Press. (1980).] Fragmenting sex and making favorable and unfavorable judgments about the fragments further diminished the bright line between procreative sex and sterile sex.

The American Psychiatric Association added to the decline when it decided that homosexuality was no longer a disorder.

With the societal and psychological barriers against homosexuality banished, the number of homosexuals increased. They became a powerful pressure group seeking to outlaw the normal instinct against deliberately sterile sex.

If the ruling class had not embraced contraception, and if the scientists had not engaged in Frankenstein-like experiments, it is probable that this dehumanizing situation would not have happened.
