The Jawa Report has this excellent little article about how Perez Hilton has changed his mind about gay men:
Perez Hilton Has Convinced Me…
The continued vicious persecution of Miss USA contestant Carrie Prejean clearly demonstrates that most gay men are too mentally unstable and utterly self-absorbed to function in society.
Heretofore I’ve followed a “live and let live” philosophy regarding homosexuality. It’s not for me, but I don’t want to see people persecuted for their sexuality, though I’ve never been comfortable with the 1970s political decision on the part of the American Psychiatric Association to pretend that homosexuality is a “lifestyle preference” rather than a mental illness. I viewed the resulting pretense that homosexuality could not be treated as similar to the controversy over whether or not the deaf should receive cochlear implants – misguided, but up to the individuals involved.
In fact, homosexuality is treatable; though the extent that treatment helps and the incidence of recidivism is open to debate.
Note for record: I’ve got a Bachlerors in Psychology and a year of post-grad work. I can’t disagree with a thing he’s said about homosexuality and psychology. I’ve been receiving a few (very few, thanks) e-mails from gay men about my previous articles on this subject. They agree as well.
This is NOT about Carrie Prejean. It’s entirely about a very, very small, very vocal, very self-aggrandizing group of gay men who can’t wait to self-promote themselves into impossible positions, and who cry like spoiled little girls when they don’t get their way.
Well worth your time to read. Take the time to read all the way down to click through and also read “this truly horrifying link” that will leave you shaking your head.
As a nurse who watches people die of AIDS every week in the hospital, it sure did me.
