Many on the Right seem to feel that the gay rights movement is somehow portending the end of civilization.
But gays have never destroyed a civilization; quite the contrary. Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci and all the rest of them were generally civilizing influences.
Think of it this way: if an illegal alien slips into the country, it will cost us tax dollars. It may mean one more member of the Mexican Mafia -- or several, in the next generation. If a gay guy slips his penis into another gay guy, it doesn't affect the rest of us at all.
Gays don't insist on affirmative action. They don't claim that disparate impact is evidence of discrimination. They don't soak up tax dollars like sponges, or require more firemen and policemen wherever they live.
Young gays don't bully other kids and disrupt the learning process for others in their schools. And adult gays won't be "recruiting" our sons and daughters, any more than they could "recruit" you.
To think clearly about them, you have to recognize that whatever personal revulsion you feel about them is only that -- personal. I've had plenty of them make passes at me, and my reactions gradually evolved from utter revulsion (as a teenager), to mild revulsion, to indifference, to -- at age 59 -- mild gratification that anybody would still be interested in me.
But you have to set aside those feelings, and think about who they are. They are our sons, our daughters, our brothers, our cousins, and our coworkers. They are not our enemy.
Have you ever felt in danger walking in the gay section of town? Have you ever paid your taxes and thought, I'm so tired of supporting those lazy goddamn gays? When you hear about a mugging, do you nod knowingly and think to yourself, "Yep, I'll bet anything it was a gay guy"?
Do you get the impression that gays hate straights?
Gays don't tear at the fabric of a society. They stitch and hem and design it. There's no civilization in history which has collapsed because the homos overran it.
Gays don't lower the average IQ. They're not going to send our country into a downward dysgenic spiral. Don't conflate your personal distaste for effeminate men or masculine women with some larger cause. That's misguided.
Take the long view. Gays always be with us, but they're not the ones we have to worry about. This is what's eventually going to destroy our country. Not gay people.
