What Does ‘Gay’ Sex Have To Do With Discrimination Anyway?

avatar

It’s almost become a cliché: “Who would choose to be “homosexual” when persons caught up in homosexual practice have to endure so much hatred and “homophobia?””

How many times have we heard this argument, and how many people do you know have fallen for it? I bet you can’t even count them, there are so many. I, myself, used to believe was a valid argument, but it really doesn’t add up. I guess it’s easy to fall victim to an emotionally manipulative argument, because nobody wants to be the “bad” guy, right? Homosexual activists continuously count on this emotional manipulation away from truth-seeking or fact-finding.

First, we need to clarify something about the term “homophobia” and its use…

The definition of “homophobia” that homosexual activists and their sympatico use, actually started in a pornographic magazine called Screw. Two homosexual activists (not scientists or psychiatrists), Jack Nichols and Lige Clarke first used the term in the pornography magazine Screw, edited by Al Goldstein. In their article, the authors used the term “homophobia” to describe a person’s fears that others might think they were “homosexual.” The authors postulated that “homophobic” fears limited the experiences of males from involvement in poetry, art, movement, and same-sex touching.

Postulated in a pornographic magazine means that the term “homophobia” as commonly used today has NO legit scientific or psychological foundation whatsoever. A “phobia” denotes irrational fear. A principled stance or view point based on Biblical principles or moral precepts (medical, scientific, psychological, sociological, socio-economic, philosophical, ethical) is and can not be re-defined as irrational fear, or even “fear” in general.

But I digress. The truth is, people make choices to behave in certain ways that other people disagree with or are uncomfortable with, all the time.  What does that have to do with homosexual behavior anyway? That doesn’t prove anything.

According to homosexual activists, if social stigma (“discrimination”) decreases, then health problems experienced by men and women caught up and engaging in homosexual practice should also decrease. Lets see whether the facts validate this logic…

The following evidence comes from non partisan health researchers and also from some pro-homosexual sources and groups.

(1.) Studies confirm that homosexual behavior continues to be directly associated with a decreased lifespan.

This study of 8,333 Danes who married same-sex partners reports that mortality rates for males in the ten years following marriage were 33% higher than for the general population, and among females, 34% higher.  They admit that despite the recent success in treating AIDS, “Danish men and women in same-sex marriages still have mortality rates that exceed those of the general population.” Surprisingly, the researchers conclude that “the claims of drastically increased overall mortality in ‘gay’ men and women appear unjustified.” So the authors of the above study show a higher mortality rate, but then follow up by saying that their own findings from their study is unjustified?! What’s that about?

Well, we’ve seen researchers cater to political correctness out of fear of backlash before (i.e. see Dr. Spritzer). I remember Dr. Paul Cameron citing a study of shorter lifespan among persons caught up in homosexual practice. The original researcher team, afraid of political backlash from homosexual activists groups, then published a letter of complaint in a medical journal angrily noting that “certain right wing groups” were using their data to suggest that homosexual practice was a bad thing. So their data shows homosexual practice had bad results, but they don’t want anybody to think or say that homosexual practice is bad?!

But again, political correctness and capitulation to political correctness, doesn’t negate the findings that are reported. A researcher can apologize, back peddle, and even denounce his or her own study, but unless he or she makes a sound case for methodological flaws and fraudulent methods, his or her capitulation in fear of political backlash doesn’t all of the sudden make the facts become non facts or the data become not data. It still doesn’t negate the findings of their study or studies. If they can’t face their own facts, “we the people” can.

Here is a more recent the followup study, which concludes that (with even with the aid of AIDS drugs most likely) homosexual “married” men live shorter lives than men who are married to women, but not worse than single men (who also live shorter lives than men married to women). But as you see, homosexual “married” women are living much shorter lives than all women.  Cancer rates among lesbians is not new news, and it still shows same sex “marriage” does not bode well in comparison to normal relationships.

 

Two studies on mortality/lifespan not enough? There are many other lifespan studies included in this link further confirm the studies in the above 2 links.

The lifespan topic is really taboo among homosexual advocates, because the evidence indicates that on average, even apart from AIDS, men and women caught up in the homosexual practice from an early age will be less likely to live past their mid-40’s, an appalling loss of anywhere from 8-30 years, or up to 40% of normal American life span.

(2.) People caught up in homosexual practice are the only group in which certain sexual health issues are increasing.

(A.) Homosexual and bisexual HIV infections rise 70% in ten years (23 March 2011). See the following:

Gay and bisexual HIV infections rise 70% in ten years

HIV and syphilis rates were highest among MSM

        (B.) In 2011, an astonishing and tragic 94.9 percent of HIV diagnoses among teenage boys (13-19-years-old) were linked to homosexual (“male-to-male”) sex. And 94.1 percent of the cases among young men ages 20-24 were from “gay” sex….  http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/pdf/statistics_surveillance_Adolescents.pdf

 (C.) The introduction of effective drugs against HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, has not changed the risk of contracting the virus during a single act of homosexual sex:  AIDS drugs haven’t changed HIV risk with anal sex

 (D.) Health Risks of “lesbian” sex and lifestyle.  Lesbian sex is not as healthy as believed by most people.  See video: Risks of Lesbian Sex

 (E.) Cancer-related illnesses: HIV-positive Practicing Homosexual Men 9000% More Likely to Develop Anal Cancer: Physicians for Life Study

 (F.) In Africa, persons who engage in homosexual acts still bear the heaviest burden of HIV infections — see articles here, here and here.

         (G.) AIDs rates in Africa are also under the umbrella of other diseases due to malnutrition and poverty… http://www.virusmyth.com/aids/hiv/pdafrica.htm

         (H.) “Men who have sex with men still account for the heaviest burden of actual AIDs rates in Africa. In 2012, men who have sex with men (MSM) are at substantial risk for HIV infection in virtually every context studied (panel 1).1,3,4 This risk has been present since the syndrome now known as AIDS was first described in previously healthy homosexual men in Los Angeles (CA, USA) in 1981.5–7 Despite decades of research and community, medical, and public health efforts, high HIV prevalence and incidence burdens have been reported in MSM throughout the world.8 In many high-income settings—including Australia, France, the UK, and the USA—overall HIV epidemic trends are in decline except in MSM, where they have been expanding in the era of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) in what have been described as re-emergent epidemics in MSM.9,10 In the USA, HIV infections in MSM are estimated to be increasing at roughly 8% per year since 2001.9 And in much of Africa, Asia, and Latin America, the highest rates of HIV infection in any risk group are in these men.”

         (I.) “HIV continues to spread among MSM on a global level. Current prevention efforts have been unable to contain or reduce HIV transmission in this population. Additional behavioral and biomedical interventions are urgently needed.”

(3.) In highly homosexuality-friendly European countries, where same-sex “marriage” has been legal for a decade or more, psychological problems related to homosexual behavior have remained higher than the normal population and in many cases, have actually increased.

(4.) People caught up in homosexual practice and “relationships” harm one another far more frequently, and often far more seriously, than anybody else harms them.

(A.) Men and women caught up in the homosexual practice are twice as likely to endure Intimate Partner Violence as man-woman couples:

Gays and lesbians twice as likely to endure Intimate Partner Violence as heterosexuals

(B.) The National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (a pro-homosexuality organization) report on LGBT domestic partner violence in the United States found that LGBTQ domestic/intimate partner violence reports rose 15% since 2008, and in 2009, NCAVP documented six murders related to LGBTQ domestic/intimate partner violence, representing a 50% rise since 2007:

Domestic Violence Has Risen 15% Since 2008 Among LGBTQ Population Nationally

(C.) The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence reports that homosexual couples have higher rates of domestic violence; with female same sex couples the highest and male homosexual couples the second highest. Notice that the nature of their domestic violence includes verbal and physical assault, which is the same thing they accuse Christians and the rest of society for, as well as sexual assault:

Domestic Violence and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Relationships

(D.) We are also starting to find out that persons caught up in homosexual practice fake “hate” crimes more than any other group of people. See here and here and here and here and here and here.

Including the Matthew Shepard tragedy, whose death was lied about and exploited to push an agenda. See here and here and here and here and here.

(E.) See the amount of bullying, death wishes, and attempts at forced compliance of thought made by the “tolerance” crowd that is homosexual activism… see here. I’m sure there have been more examples since this article was published.

        (F.)  What is ironic in the world of homosexual activism is how they constantly scream they are being oppressed, while their activist groups are some of the most well-funded out there. The CEO’s of these homosexual activist groups like HRC, GLAAD, GLSEN etc all make at least a quarter of a million dollars a year through funding and tax dollars. See here ,  page 31 here , here , here, here, and here. 

Imagine making a 6 figure salary for simply advocating their private bedroom habits publicly?!

They also brag about how rich they are as a community. See here.

Yes folks, beware of all those evil Christian Churches, only because they’re so rich and greedy!

(5.) Ever wonder why homosexual activists claim therapy to overcome (unwanted) homosexual attractions is harmful and doesn’t work, but at the same time, they also think it’s okay to have hormones injected in a person and have parts of their body mutilated if and when one is confused or uncomfortable with their biological sex? They believe that sex reassignment surgery is the best way to help these people feel more comfortable with the biological sex they think they are. However, the evidence shows that reassignment surgery, actually increases the chance of suicide and other psychological problems…

          (A.) John’s Hopkins University has stopped doing Sex Reassignment Surgery, because of the high risks for suicide that increase higher an average of 10 years after the “surgery” than before the surgery: http://cnsnews.com/news/article/michael-w-chapman/johns-hopkins-psychiatrist-transgender-mental-disorder-sex-change

          (B.) More scientific data here shows that it doesn’t bode well for people who have sex reassignment surgery and hormones….

             (C.) “The crude suicide rate among VETERANS with transgender-related ICD-9-CM diagnoses is higher than in the general population, and they may be dying by suicide at younger ages than their veteran peers without transgender-related ICD-9-CM diagnoses.”

http://online.liebertpub.com/doi/full/10.1089/lgbt.2014.0050

             (D.) Japan study of Oct., 2009 concludes their findings do not provide any evidence that genetic variants of sex hormone-related genes confer individual susceptibility to MTF or FTM transsexualism.

             (E.) Rome study of Jan., 2013 concludes: “Gender disorders do not seem to be associated with any molecular mutations of some of the main genes involved in sexual differentiation.”

             (F.) Sweden, 1973-2003 concludes: “Persons with transsexualism, after sex reassignment, have considerably higher risks for mortality, suicidal behavior, and psychiatric morbidity than the general population. Our findings suggest that sex reassignment, although alleviating some gender dysphoria, may not suffice as treatment for transsexualism, and should inspire improved psychiatric and somatic care after sex reassignment for this patient group.”

             (G.) Men who think or believe they are women and act on those feelings have almost 50 times the odds of HIV infection than did the reference population. Men with biological sex confusion (aka. Transgender) have an HIV infection rate 50 times higher…

The evidence shows that our psychological, chemical, and hormonal processes have much to do with our biology, and that we are not just an abstract consciousness inhabiting a impersonal body. Is it any surprise that problems still increase if and when people are encouraged and enabled to treat their bodies like ghosts in a machine?

Conclusion:

As you can see, the evidence shows that even when society and many governments around the globe become more accepting and endorsing of homosexual practice via homosexual “marriages” and other like-minded legislation than ever before, the associated health problems of men and women caught up in homosexual practice has continued to increase, not decrease.

Men who have sex with men are 5000% (50 times) more likely to contract HIV than men who have sex with women. (See page 2 here: http://www.cdc.gov/maso/facm/pdfs/CHACHSPT/2010051112_CHACSPT.pdf.)

Smokers are 15x to 30x more likely to get lung cancer than a non-smoker.

http://m.cdc.gov/en/HealthSafetyTopics/DiseasesConditions/Cancer/Lung/riskFactors

Men who have sex with men are 50% to 300% more likely to contract HIV than a smoker is to get lung cancer. If we follow along with the logic of homosexual activists, we must also conclude that smokers became afflicted with lung cancer, heart disease, etc., due to “smokophobia,” the social stigma against smoking rather than the smoking itself. But that, in a nutshell, describes the manipulation of the homosexual activist movement. (See Isaiah 5:20.)

Study after study reveals that homosexual practice, whether male with male or female with female, can shorten a person’s life by 10 to 30 years. With all the attention on smoking, which the National Cancer Institute says takes from 7 to 10 years off someone’s life, why don’t we hear the same humane outcry about homosexual practice? Here’s a behavior that’s killing people at two to three times the rate of smoking, and is disproportionately spreading HIV infections, which is costing us far more in taxpayer funding than any other sickness an average of $21-22 billion every year on an increasing cost each year,
(see also : The Fair Foundation), yet not only do we have many who don’t seem to care, we have many encouraging homosexual practice.

(I believe this article also provides an answer to the rhetorical question ask by homosexual advocates, “how does homosexual practice and/or redefining marriage affect you?”)

A proposed solution may include:

(1.) No government endorsement of homosexual practice, including “homosexual marriages” or any pro-“sexual orientation” laws;

(2.)  An ongoing vibrant/aggressive marketing anti-homosexual behavior campaign akin to the recent anti-smoking ad campaigns. Yes. This means homosexual political activism become illegal, but adult individuals who just want to be left alone will be left alone.

Remember, the very nature and definition of homosexual ACTIVISM, like the HRCs, GLAADs, GLSENs, PFLAGS, etc of the world is what is making what should be a private bedroom matter an in everybody’s faces public matter.

People who are caught up in homosexual practice may happen to be nice, kind, have successful careers and talents, but none of that has anything to do with their emotive-sexual attraction or sexual behaviors, and it definitely doesn’t validate teaching, affirming, endorsing, or celebrating homosexual practice in the public sphere as a positive good.

Is it right to encourage a person to pursue a behavior that is proven to be medically unhealthy and reduces a person’s lifespan, independent of social stigma or discrimination? So ask the homosexual activist and their sympatico; “how does proof of victimization prove homosexual practice is more healthy?” One thing really doesn’t have anything to do with the other. This should become more obvious to us when we stop and think it through, rather than let emotional manipulative rhetoric and a victim-card passion play cloud our better judgment.

Any relationship that is truly healthy emotionally, psychologically, and sexually, wouldn’t cause a much greater risk of disease, dysfunction, and a shorter lifespan.  Homosexual practice, with all of its health consequences, cannot be GOD-ordained. (See: here and here and here and here)

All people deserve to be treated with dignity. You can either be an enabler or you can offer people the dignified truth by telling them that homosexuality is unworthy of them.
Your call.

Hating Jesus: The American Left's War on Christianity

Matt Barber with Paul Hair

The secular left doesn’t merely have a disagreement with Christianity. These are not people with whom one may reason, compromise or even disagree. They are dedicated to evil. They demand nothing less than the abolition of the biblical worldview, and the destruction of Christ’s followers right along with it.

Now is the time to fight back. If you are someone, Christian or not, who refuses to see Christianity wiped out (like it ever could be) and your children indoctrinated into pure evil, then sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option.
