“…one of our favorite Dr. Laura quotes: “How many letters have I read on the air from gay men who acknowledge that a huge portion of the male homosexual populace is predatory on young boys?” […] and we were outraged that Paramount would give a national platform to someone intent on spreading that kind of intolerance against a class of Americans.”
Of course, nobody deserves having their character smeared, and being called “predatory”, when they factually are nothing of the sort.
…but, here is the issue…
They spend no time contesting the validity of the accusation [that said behavior is “predatory on young boys”], and merely try to distance themselves from “that kind of behavior”.
It is not a question of whether or not this “deserves” to be called predatory…Many so called progressives, buy into the pop culture intolerance, hook, line and sinker…and without any deeper, critical examination.
It is a question of whether or not, they themselves, are being associated with anything stigmatised, that might hold them back socially and politically.
The fact that calling man/boy sexual relations “predatory”, as an absolute default, is a lie, does not even factor into how or why they respond.
There is no integrity, in searching out and standing up for the truth…It is just all about retreating from the stigma and lies.
Many of these gay and lesbian groups, are all to willing to repeat these exact same lies…and propagate hate, violence and intolerance…so long as they don’t perceive it, as coming back on themselves in a bad way.
They demand that others treat them with integrity and respect, yet refuse these same dignities to others.
Astonishingly incredulous, but true.
It is not my intent to point fingers and condemn others…but, it is high time, that groups who claim to be for truth and freedom, actually stand for these things, unflinchingly across the board.
It is time they addressed the issues of political smearing aimed at all sexual minorities…and issues of integrity, honesty and respect for the life choices of others.
If they only focus on looking out for their own skewed interests, then they probably aren’t much of a supporter of freedom and honesty, in the wider sense.
This is one of the biggest tragedies, of the gay and lesbian movement.
