Some Inconvenient (and Uncomfortable) Truths on Homosexuality

Earlier this year, as Ezra Klein’s Vox.com was launched, when describing why another news and politics site was necessary, Klein remarked that Vox would be “as good at explaining the world as it is at reporting on it.” It seems that is not the case when it comes to homosexuality.

Recently Vox reported on a new study from the Centers for Disease Control which revealed that from 2001 to 2011, annual diagnoses of HIV among men who have sex with men (MSM)—in the 13 to 24 age group—increased 132.5%. This is a much larger increase than the one among older homosexuals, and enormous compared to the nearly 33% drop in HIV diagnoses among the general population.

Even more striking, and left out of the Vox report, is the fact that, though male homosexuals are only about 2% of the U.S. population, they account for over half (56%) of all HIV infections in the U.S. In 2011, homosexual men accounted for 79% of new HIV infections among men. Male homosexuals are 60 times more likely to contract HIV than other men. A 2008 study showed that 1 in 5 gay men in the U.S. has HIV.

The World Health Organization, which Vox also "conveniently" ignored, is so concerned about the “exploding epidemic” of HIV that it recently recommended that all homosexual men consider antiretroviral medications “to help prevent HIV infection.” However, even more likely to contract HIV than gay men are “transgender women” (who are, of course, biologically male). They are 50 times more likely to be infected than the general population and are among the most at-risk groups to contract HIV.

And it’s not just HIV. In May of this year WebMD reported that, “Syphilis has returned with a vengeance to the gay community.” According to the CDC, among homosexual men, cases of syphilis have more than doubled since the year 2000. The CDC also revealed that, in 2008 “men who have sex with men” accounted for 63% of all new syphilis cases.

Additionally, the CDC reports that homosexuals are 15 times more likely than the general population to get Hepatitis B and 17 times more likely to get anal cancer.

Speaking of the anal region, homosexual men who are on the “receiving end” of a penis (using their anus like a vagina), are over 17 times more likely to contract HIV than women who engage in sexual activity as it was meant to be. Although Vox referenced this, even including a graphic, they left out other important information. Such as the fact that the vast majority of gay men, 75% according to author Steven Gregory Underwood, engage in anal sex.  One researcher referred to it as the “sine qua non of sex for many gay men.”

Yet, as the previous link points out, and as Vox again leaves out, “human physiology makes it clear that the body was not designed to accommodate this activity. The rectum is significantly different from the vagina with regard to suitability for penetration by a penis. The vagina has natural lubricants and is supported by a network of muscles. It is composed of a mucus membrane with a multi-layer stratified squamous epithelium that allows it to endure friction without damage and to resist the immunological actions caused by semen and sperm. In comparison, the anus is a delicate mechanism of small muscles that comprise an ‘exit-only’ passage.”

Anal intercourse, as Dr. Jeffrey Satinover, author of Homosexuality and the Politics of Truth, points out, traumatizes the soft tissues of the rectal lining. “These tissues are meant to accommodate the relatively soft fecal mass…and are nowhere near as sturdy as vaginal tissues. As a consequence, the lining of the rectum is almost always traumatized to some degree by any act of anal intercourse. Even in the absence of major trauma, minor or microscopic tears in the rectal lining allow for immediate contamination and the entry of germs into the bloodstream.”

Vox also reports that “compared to young men who have sex with women, those who have sex with men are nearly 10 times as likely to have ever injected illegal drugs.” In 2007 the Los Angeles Times reported the frequency of methamphetamine use is 20 times greater among MSM than in the general population.

Such information, though graphic and uncomfortable even to read, is very necessary and should be widely discussed given where we are in this nation when it comes to homosexuality. With same-sex marriage, homosexuality, and transgenderism being hailed as normal— even the American Psychological Association deceptively declares that “Both heterosexual behavior and homosexual behavior are normal aspects of human sexuality”— and is now welcomed and celebrated by politicians and pundits, courts and corporations, Hollywood and high schools alike, more than ever the American public is in dire need of “the whole truth” on these matters.

The truth is that homosexual behavior, especially male homosexual behavior, is very dangerous and unhealthy. And it is certainly not something that governments or organizations of any type should promote. Those dealing with homosexual desires deserve understanding and compassion, but they also deserve the truth.

However, as Vox again demonstrates, the liberal media will never present the whole truth on homosexuality. (Sadly, we can’t even trust many churches on homosexuality!) If you do happen to report the facts on this matter, you are at least accused of perpetuating “false stereotypes” of homosexuals, or, at worst, labeled a bigot and a homophobe in need of being “stamped out...ruthlessly.” For the sake of our nation, more people better start telling the truth.

  1. Gee Trevor. I seem to remember a time when you chastised me for suggesting you engage in theological masturbation. I've always thought these hatchet jobs you publish here were swill and pig slop, but now you've sunk to a new low for literary para-pornography and obscenity.

    Allow me to quote:
    "The rectum is significantly different from the vagina with regard to suitability for penetration by a penis. The vagina has natural lubricants and is supported by a network of muscles. It is composed of a mucus membrane with a multi-layer stratified squamous epithelium that allows it to endure friction without damage and to resist the immunological actions caused by semen and sperm."

    Yea baby. That was quite titillating! You covered that bit of needless detail with the zeal and enthusiasm of a 12 year old boy ogling his first copy of Penthouse. Honestly, you remind me of an African politician speaking about establishment of the death penalty for homosexuality (and severe penalties for knowing one and not reporting the person) -who was quoted screaming to an eager audience in regards to homosexuals "Do you know what they're doing?!!"

    So... considering the above material, are you maybe prepping for a new job working for Larry Flynt? No? -Missionary work in Uganda perhaps? Well... at least I know your suggestion that we should "keep it clean" because your students and kids might read here was total bullcrap.

    Sadly, like Ezra Klein’s Vox.com, you left out other important information. You managed to leave out an entire class of relevant statistical data for transmission of STDs through oral copulation, -which is practiced by gays and straights alike. Hummm... perhaps the real problem here can be summed up by Robin Williams' irreverent quote from Good Morning Vietnam: "You are in more dire need of a blowjob than any white man in history."

    Just saying…

  2. Sorry Kiev, the homosexual agenda has forced my hand. Yes, as I warned on my Facebook post about this piece, it is graphic. However, someone needs to tell the gory details about MSM.

    Yes, STD's can be transmitted in other ways, including normal sexual behavior. In fact, anal sex can (and is) something done by lesbians and straights alike. And some of the dangers are still there for straights. However, the facts remain about homosexual men: It is done far more often and is far more dangerous.

    As I have noted before (or at at least implied), just as with same-sex parenting, we don't need studies to show us what sound morality has long revealed: homosexuality is immoral and dangerous behavior. This is why sodomy was illegal in every state in the U.S. until the early 1960's and continues to be illegal across the world.

    Go here for more details: http://www.trevorgrantthomas.com/2014/02/same-sex-marriage-paganism-founders-and.html

    I'm not saying that homosexuality should be criminalized, but it certainly should not be promoted as normal and healthy behavior. As science reveals, the facts prove differently.

  3. Yea, it seems that something "forces your hand" on a regular basis, and I've already remarked on the predictably repetetive motion that hand makes. Perhaps it is the sine qua non of your existance...

  4. From the "gay-est" city in the world, this is what the homosexual agenda has wrought (WARNING: EXTREMELY graphic):

  5. I checked the link. Sadly Trevor the link you cited confuses Sadomasochistic Sex with homosexuality. I'm sure that was intended for the purpose of sensationalism and propaganda. You are still very much the 12 year old with his first copy of penthouse. Grow up.

    However, if you really want to be offended, google naturism and click on the images tab. There you will find photos of nude families frolicking au naturel. You would probably insist some of that is child porn, but personally I think you're just bent that way. (WARNING: EXTREMELY normal).

    Put that in your sad, sick hyper-morality pipe and smoke it.

  6. It's a homosexual-themed fair. It's "a gay and leather event from the start" says a "foremost authority" on the matter (Daily Kos: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/07/27/1317075/-Up-Your-Alley-Fair-San-Francisco#)

    Sure, part of the focus is BDSM, but it is also an all too typical picture of the homosexual lifestyle--that "gay pride" parades also reveal. Google images from those and notice the theme: sex (almost always the case).

    Now, if nude families are "frolicking" in public, then yes, I would be very suspicious of what the children are learning and how they are being treated. As a parent of four, there is certainly a particular age children reach where they should not be "frolicking" nude around their parents or siblings, and especially not around those outside the family. This is also most certainly the case with the parents.

    Yes, there is a moral standard with nudity and sexuality to which we all should adhere.

  7. Good article, Mr. Thomas. I'd like to see you write another article exposing the numbers of homosexual men living with colostomy bags and all the other foul consequences of their choosing to live a depraved and deviant lifestyle. It's sad, as these are truly sin-sick souls.

  8. Thanks Jane. A link I placed in one of the comments above illustrates some of what you are talking about.

    Here it is again (warning: EXTREMELY graphic):

    http://americansfortruth.com/2014/07/31/san-francisco-after-the-nudity-ban-aftah-exposes-nudity-filled-up-your-alley-street-fair/

    If you dare, notice the photos, and the accompanying and accurate captions, of the old men.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Trevor, why is the fact that some of these people are old relevant? If I showed you a photo of a group of old people of mixed sexual preferences you would not be able to tell which was which. This would be true for any age group. Appearance of the unadorned nude body does not reveal which is the Catholic who is sexually prudish and which is the Catholic priest who molests alter boys. Nor will the photos reveal which woman is faithful and monagamous, which one swings, which one is gay, and which one in into bestiality. People who can think above a 12 year old level generally understand this.

    I would like to recommend a DVD for you to watch. Sorry, no, it's not pornographic. Rather it is a fictional discourse on social and religious concepts of morality expressed in literature of the Napoleonic era. See if you can find yourself among the characters portrayed in this award winning film.

    Title: Quills
    Link at IMDB:
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0180073/

    And if you want a less fictionalized choice:

    Title: Kinsey
    (The story of Alfred Kinsey, a pioneer in the area of human sexuality research, whose 1948 publication "Sexual Behavior in the Human Male" was one of the first recorded works that saw science address sexual behavior.)
    Link at IMDB:
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0362269/

    It's not too late for you to grow up. These recommendations might assist you in that regard.

  10. It's not simply that they are old Kiev, it's the sad state of their lives, when they reach that age, after living a homosexual lifestyle. As the captions noted, such men are largely alone and ignored by a culture that can't (normally) reproduce and worships youthful bodies.

    Kinsey?!--the lying, con-man, propagandist, homosexual (with a preference for young boys), atheist, bigot--Surely you jest! His efforts have long been debunked.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Trevor it is interesting that you apparently read your own biases into the photos. Please go into detail on how you *know* the lives of these men are sad.

    The photo captions (which were added by the conservative author of the online article -Peter LaBarbera) are just as suspect as your personal biases. If I uploaded an illustration of Jesus on the cross to the internet and placed a caption suggesting he was crucified because he was a pedophile, would that make it true? If my caption said Jesus was a drug addict, would that make it true? If I said his life was sad, would that be true?

    I don't recommend crap to you Trevor. The two films I suggested are worthy of your time. They are not family films, but are meritorious for their social and moral commentary. Quills in particular echoes of Libertarianism and certain values promoted by Ayn Rand. Kinsey on the other hand is not a film intended to validate the research data in the Kinsey reports, but to offer a portrait of the man, his relationship with his wife, his father, and his professional work.

    On the other hand, the stuff you have linked is sensationalistic swill and pig slop. As I previously mentioned, it intentionally conflates homosexuality with sadomasochism and exhibihitionism, and does so primarily to serve a political agenda. The fact that you would rather spend your time gawking at these online conservative rags than spend a couple of hours on the films I suggested, -that is what is sad.

    As for the homosexual agenda "worshipping" youthful bodies, do you suggest that heterosexuals do not? Popular adult men's magazines frequently feature centerfolds who are at or just over the legal age. The popularity of these magazines suggests your above insinuation regarding homosexuality worshipping youthful bodies is inappropriate because that is not a characteristic unique to the sexual preference, but rather the human experience. And even you have to admit that.

  12. Nice column Trevor. How sad that so many have been deceived into this wicked and horrible lifestyle. It will be interesting to see how long the media can hide what is the truth here. Hopefully a significant majority of Americans will soon wake up to the truth. We must pray!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yes Kiev, there is rampant worship of "youthful bodies" in the heterosexual community as well. (Which has done more damage to the family than homosexuality.) But such worship is central to the homosexual lifestyle. It is the biblical model of the family that is the foundation of every sound community and culture the world has ever known.

    And yes DWW, much prayer and repentance is necessary when it comes to our nation and sexuality.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Honestly Trevor, now it sounds like you're just talking out of your backside. That's right, you're engaging in another unnatural and inappropriate use of the poop chute.

    So tell me, did the quote "biblical model" of the family worship youthful bodies? I think we both know the answer to that.

    Feel free to post reviews after you see the films.

  15. Getting back to the point you once scolded me for suggesting you engage in theological mastrubation -because (paraphrase) "my students and my kids sometime read here, so you have to keep it clean":

    Part of me wonders if you will still be proud of this sensationalistic and manipulative propaganda when your students and your own kids read it some day in the future. Will you proudly stand by these writings when your adult children confront you with it when they are finally old enough and wise enough to tell bullshit and lies from rational logic and truth?
