Why Do Many Geniuses Have a Large Forehead?

You mean people with genius IQ’s over 140? I am not sure about those with 140–160 IQ’s. Their heads are surely larger than average, but whether you would notice it or not is dubious.

But quite a few super geniuses with IQ’s of 160–200 have extremely large heads. Christopher Langan had to special order a motorcycle helmet made specifically for him because his head was so big. The manufacturer told him that only 1 out of every 3.3 million people had a head as big as his. He has some videos on Youtube. If you look closely at him, you might notice that one thing that is remarkable about him is that he does indeed have a huge head.

This is where the term “egghead” comes from. If you get a chance, look up an old photo of the team that worked at the Manhattan Project to make the nuclear bomb at White Sands, New Mexico. There are 30-40 men in that photo. Look closely at them, and you will see that most of them have pretty big heads. In particular, look at how big their foreheads are. The larger forehead on very bright men gave an egg-shaped appearance to their skulls, which gave rise to the phrase.

Lily Allen, “Who’d Have Known?”

Another great song from Lily Allen. I did not mention it in the last post, but this Electropop stuff is also great dance music. In addition to the 1980ish origins, it also has roots in techno and house dance music produced by DJ’s in dance clubs later on. I liked both techno and house.

Some great dance music, even if I had quit dancing by that time. I actually love to dance and supposedly I can dance pretty well. There’s one great thing about dancing, regardless of whether you think it’s faggy. And that’s because in a real way, dancing is the opposite of faggy. Women and girls love a great dancer, especially in a sexy, attractive and rather masculine male. Dancing is a very sexual activity – it’s nearly vertical sex de facto if you think about it. Dancing makes women horny. An ability to dance is a great component of Game, especially if you are attractive, fairly masculine and sexy.

What I am trying to say is that if you look good and your Game is good, being a great dancer can also get you laid. A lot. One great reason to take up dancing, guys!

That I dance well his is due to the fact that I have a partly Female Character. Face it guys, dancing in the West is a phenomenon rooted deeply in the Female Character. Yes, men do dance sometimes even in hypermasculine Arab, Kurdish and Turkic cultures, but let’s not fool ourselves. There’s nothing masculine in even that dancing. If you dance well, you have a feminine side, and that’s not a bad thing.

Is there any male dancing? Square dancing, line dancing, and of course slow dancing, etc. are rooted in the Female Character. There’s nothing masculine about flowing around in such a friendly way like that. The very fact that you are flowing, smiling, and warm shows you are acting female because females flow when they move while males move like mechanical objects or automatons in harsh, cold, blocky movements. Females also smile and act warm, while men scowl and act cold. These things are called Essential Gender Character. Check out the great Otto Weininger for more.

I would say that slam dancing is pretty masculine. Stage diving and slam pits are are all about the Male Character. Females trolling around the slam pit are acting pretty masculine, not that that’s a bad thing, since most if not all people have both Masculine and Feminine characters, following Weininger.

After all, testosterone is what makes women horny in the first place. The nuking of the female sex drive post-menopause (yeah, it’s real all right) is down to declining testosterone as much as declining estrogen. The greater sexuality of Black women may be down to increased testosterone. There are women who actually take testosterone supplements or get shots to revive a flagging sex drive.

Is There Life After Death?

I told you so.

But I already figured this out before they proved it. I don’t need Mommy Science to prove things for me. I can figure them out on my own and prove them on my own via my own use of the empirical method, which we all use every day, all day long, anyway. So we are all little scientists. And we little scientists don’t need the Big Scientists to tell us what’s true and not true or real and not real  when we have already figured these things out on our  own via our own empirical investigations.

This was my latest theory – that you live for at least a couple of hours after you die, and the article seems to back it up. There is a very convincing account on Quora of a man who was apparently dead for two hours and then regained life somehow. Don’t ask me how that works.

This man also has a very convincing testimony of reincarnation.

Why is Domestic Violence Almost Twice as Common among Lesbian Couples and Male Gay Couples?

Link to the study.

Answered on Queera. I am really starting to hate homosexuals, especially gay men, and I have been an ally for decades. They keep reporting me to Queera Staff for homophobic hate speech. I have been trying very hard from the start to leave anything like that out of my answers, but they keep reporting me anyway. Every time I try to write my answers to make them more acceptable, but the fags just report me again.

And yeah, they are fags because they declared war on me. Gay men who I hate are fags. The rest are just gay men. They are trying to their damndest to get me banned from there. Queera is one of the most wildly pro-gay sites on the whole Internet. If you didn’t know any better, you would think gays are the greatest thing since radial tires. Gays swarm every question about homosexuality and flood it with answers that are mostly just a wild pack of crazy lies. The problem with gays nowadays is that almost 100% of gay people are gay activists all wrapped up in Gay Politics, and as such they are mostly some of the most obnoxious and crazy SJW’s of them all. And I hate SJW’s. So I’m starting to hate gays just for being SJW scum. I don’t really care about the fact that they are gay – if they got wired up that way, I will support them 100%. But SJW’s need to be shot.

This post, incredibly enough, got reported and consequently buried as homophobic hate speech. Or maybe feminists complained. It got tagged for violating some rule called Be Nice, Be Respectful. If you so much look at the gays wrong, they bomb your post with hate speech reports.

Apparently the hate speech is when I said that gay men are vastly more likely to be effeminate than straight men and that many lesbians are quite masculine. I guess it’s evil homophobic hate speech to imply that gay men are effeminate and lesbians are masculine! What the Hell? It’s not hate speech. It’s true!

I guess that’s the problem though. I was on a Marxist forum the other day and a wildly SJW Marxist stated openly that the truth could indeed be hate speech. So here we are in SJW 1984, where telling the truth is evil bigotry, a sanctionable offense, and probably likely to be soon against the law.

The commenter the other day was right. Gay men are no fun anymore. There used to be a lot of pretty cool and fun gay guys. A lot of them were very funny, and they were known to be irreverent to say the least. Their typically degenerate lifestyles precluded any sanctimoniousness on their part, as they were an outrageous version of the glass houses maxim.

Now fags are a drag. They’re all a bunch of sanctimonious, priggish, censorious, church lady thugs. And like the feminists, they are getting dangerous. The gays are trying to get all of us straight men thrown out of our jobs and to ruin our careers, just like the feminists are trying to make all of us straight men lose their jobs, have their careers destroyed or even nowadays, thrown in jail. Both of them have basically declared war on straight men. The Feminine Principle has declared war on the Masculine Principle.

These SJW thugs, feminist or gay, are a downright menace. I don’t see any possibilities  for peace with these crazies. This is going to be a war to the end.

There will be no peace with the SJW’s.

Yes, lesbian couples and gay male couples beat each other up at twice the rates of straight couples. No one seems to know why this is, but it is common knowledge among clinicians and accepted as basic fact.

Perhaps there is a lack of proper balance or Yin Yang in these relationships.

With lesbians, you have two women who often act like men. Lesbians are more likely to be masculine than straight women.

Transmen experience an increase in crime rate after they transition from female to male. It’s as if becoming a man makes it more likely that one acts violent or criminal, which as a man I would agree with.

With gay men, well, first off, gay men are not women. People, including transsexual fetishists, think that gay men are just women in men’s bodies. Yes, gay men are wildly disproportionately effeminate and feminine, but on the other hand, they are as full of testosterone as straight men. Gay men have a significantly increased crime rate opposed to straight men, mostly for property crime.

Obviously when a man is gay, he is not a typical feminine human. He is a man, 100% man, a testosterone fueled man, who has a feminized brain in some respects, but in other ways, he is just as man of a real man as any man out there. Gay men have the same testosterone levels as straight men, and this is what drives violence and aggression in men.

With gay men, you are pairing two testosterone fueled humans together without any Yin-Yang balance to even things out. The result is likely to be explosive.

The frightening figure is that women are actually safer in relationships with men than they are with women, which gives the lie to radical feminism.

Also straight men are much less likely to beat up their partners than gay men are, which once again gives the lie to feminist theory that states that male violence against women is some special thing related to males’ inherent hatred for women or the feminine.

The truth is that this is a complex area, and psychology has no explanations for these empirical facts. We only know that the facts are real. Why the facts are the facts is another matter altogether, and no one seems to know why.

Do People Ever Go from Gay to Straight? Are any Conversion or “Correction/Cure” Therapies or Strategies Proven to Work?

Answered on Queera.

Some lesbians have gone from gay to straight. And some straight women have turned lesbian. It happens all the time. Just pick up the paper.

In the lab, some lesbians who were frightened of sex with men were treated with surrogates and became able to enjoy sex with men. However, the lesbians had to be highly motivated to change for this to work.

However, when I studied the histories of many women with early-onset lesbianism, I found what looks like a biological component. Somehow or other, they seemed to have just gotten wired up gay. These early-onset types are often masculine females, in some cases remarkably so. Whatever caused the masculinization of the female probably caused the lesbianism too.

Gay men can’t go straight or even bi past age 15. Nor can straight men change after age, nor bi men. We know this from endless lab studies. We have been trying to turn gay men straight in the lab for decades, and it’s never worked. I know of one sexologist who tried for decades and finally gave up. He kept having gay men coming to him wanting to change, and he started telling them that he could not take their money in good conscience as he was not able to change them.

Sexual orientation looks much more fixed in men than in women. Before age 15, no one knows. There does seem to be some evidence for sexual orientation change in childhood among a few males, but it’s very hard to study such things given the present Pedophilia Sex Panic. Can you imagine getting funding for such a thing?

Do Some Women and Men Choose To Be Lesbian or Gay? If So, Why?

Answered on Queera, I mean Quora.

Many straight women have gone gay. It happens all the time. And the reverse.
However, many lesbians appear to be true biological lesbians. The lesbianism is early-onset and is often associated with a masculinized female. I’ve studied many of their histories, and it looks biological somehow.

Straight and bi men cannot change their sexual orientation, at least after age 15. Before that, we do not know. I know of one case where a boy went from straight to gay between ages of 9–11. However, choice may not have been involved. Males may be able to somewhat change orientation in childhood, but this is a black hole of theory, as it is never studied.

Some straight men have chosen to live a gay lifestyle, mostly because females have seriously rejected them. This is maybe 5% of gay men, if it is even that high.

Also quite a few straight men choose to engage in varying amounts of gay sex. They prefer women, but they have sex with men on a lesser basis for a variety of reasons. They are simply choosing to do this. Why any straight man would choose such a thing is absolutely beyond me. Among the crowd I grew up, there would be nothing worse than for a straight guy to do such a thing. It was the ultimate taboo.

The number of straight men who have chosen a gay lifestyle must be very low.
Most gay men, 95%+, are biologically gay. They got wired up this way, probably in the womb due to hormonal fluctuations. They had no choice in the matter.

If you have read this far, you can see that sexual orientation is different from sexual behavior, and they do not always line up. Straight men can absolutely choose to engage in gay sex! They do it all the time. But their orientation does not change.

Is Homosexuality Natural?

Answered on Quora. I don’t know I am answering all these damned gay questions. I think it is because almost all of the gay questions are full of gay people lying their fool heads off. At this point, almost all gays, lesbians, and trans types are some of the craziest and worst SJW’s of them all. They infest the whole Internet and they pitch a line in which almost not one single thing that they say is true. Like most IP groups, gays and trans types are allergic to nothing more than the truth.

 

About as natural as left handedness and probably caused by the same thing. A minority of people are lefthanded due to abnormalities in the prenatal environment. Hormonal abnormalities in the prenatal environment also seem to be implicated in homosexuality. So in left handedness and homosexuality, frankly something has gone wrong with normal prenatal environment. This is why only 10% of the population are southpaws and only 2% of the population are homosexuals.

I suppose we can say that some developmental abnormalities are natural, if not normal. If they were normal, majorities would be lefthanded or gay. If a small number of people experience a developmental disruption that results in them being markedly different, and if these disruptions occur at a steady rate, say 3%, then I suppose we can say that this is a natural process. Perhaps it is natural for say 3% of the population to end up this way due to variations in the womb environment.

Orgasm Addicts

Women are masturbating like crazy for some time now, a good decade I would say, and maybe even longer. I’d call it a fad, but I’m afraid it’s more accurate to say it’s here to stay. Generally they are almost all capable of orgasm, and they usually reach orgasm when they masturbate.

I knew one wife in a sexless marriage where it was the husband who was not having sex (mostly for physical reasons) who rediscovered the joys of masturbation. She was in her 40’s and she was in a sexless marriage. She told me she was doing it 7-10 X/week. That’s about in line with most single women I have known.

If there’s no man around, most single women nowadays aged 27-50 are masturbating just about every day. Some maniacs are even doing it 3-4 X/day. I have had female friends in their 20’s who sometimes did it off and on all day if they have the day off or all night if they don’t have to get up in the morning. I knew a woman who had a driving job, and she used to go to abandoned parking lots between calls and rub herself off in her car in broad daylight. I would be texting one of my woman friends, and she would say, “Excuse me, I have to go masturbate. Be back in a bit.” I would chuckle, and then 30 minutes later I would get another text, “Damn that felt good!”

A lot of them stop or slow way down after menopause when the female sex drive often goes belly up but I had a date with a 58 year old woman recently who told me she masturbated pretty much whenever she felt like it.

Even teenage girls are doing this. I had an 18 year old girlfriend several years ago who told me when I met her that she did it every day.

How do I know all of these gruesome details? Women told me!

And then of course there was my infamous survey of young teenage girls posting on teenage girl chatrooms about their masturbation habits. I do a lot of research on sexology, mostly around sexual orientation. I think there is me and a gay clinical psychologist (who I have tremendous respect for, as he is actually doing good science), and we are the only people in the country actually studying this issue. The question about the causes of sexual orientation has been taken over by science-allergic Gay Lobby and Cultural Left types who are are mostly obfuscating the issue, lying like mad, and flooding it with gay propaganda like they always do.

I was looking at teenage girls’ bulletin boards to try to get some data on the onset of some puberty milestones and menarche these days, as there are a lot of reports that the age of puberty is going down. I also wanted to find the age at which the female sex drive came on, as there is almost no data about this, shamefully. I was reading through their responses and tallying them up. It happened that on a lot of these boards, the girls were discussing masturbation, so I thought, the Hell with it, might as well tally this up too. I read through their responses and tallied them up just like the other figures I was researching.

The figures really shocked me. ~70% of girls aged 13-15 reported that they were masturbating to orgasm every day or almost every day.

Even more stunning was that ~7% of 13-15 year old girls were masturbating with their own sisters! What!? They were either each doing it on their own next to each other or they were actually having sex with each other to get each other off. Apparently none of them were lesbians. I had no idea there was this much incest between sisters. Parents have no idea what their kids get up to.

Once females figure out how to have that orgasm, a lot of them are addicts.

When I meet a single woman now as part of dating or pre-dating, I usually don’t even bother to ask if she masturbates because I figure they all do.

I also have to ask questions about masturbation sometimes with my female counseling clients (and of my male counseling clients too for that matter), particularly when we are dealing with sexual themes. I would love to not have to ask questions about this, but when they come to me with sexual themes that they are going through, it’s a necessary part of the process, and a large part of my practice involves people dealing with sexual stuff. Almost all (90%) of my female counseling clients masturbate, even the married women. I must add that a few don’t though. Even women from very conservative cultures such as Pakistani Muslim women say they do it.

I remember when I was growing up, girls and women never discussed this subject. Either they weren’t doing it, or they were doing it and not talking about it. There was this idea that it was a shameful subject. It was not uncommon to have a girlfriend who said she didn’t do it. I can’t remember one girl or woman that I dated who told me that they masturbated.

I also remember a lot of discussions about women who could not reach orgasm during sex, and I had girlfriends who never got off or even more frequently, were not sure if they reached orgasm, whatever the Hell that means. Surveys routinely found that 25-30% of women were anorgasmic, that is apparently they had never had an orgasm in their lives. Nobody talks about women who can’t reach orgasm anymore. They’re all masturbating like forest shrews on speed, and once they figure out how to get that orgasm, they can usually give themselves one anytime they feel like it.

It’s like something has changed. There are theories of early sexualization that state that teenage girls nowadays are undergoing early and profound sexualization due to a variety of things, but the availability of Internet porn seemed to be the main factor. There was a documentary about this a few years ago. I forget the name of it. The lead character is a 12-year-old girl, and in my opinion, she is far too sexualized for her age. It’s quite shocking.

There are also reports that girls who get molested when they are little girls experienced an increased sex drive, sometimes said to be up to 3-5X higher, when their sex drive comes on at puberty. It’s as if the early molestation “primes” them for the real thing.

Good God, we are raising whole generations of female masturbation addicts!

Have You Damaged Your DNA Today?

Well I certainly hope so! Because if you haven’t damaged your DNA today, you must be dead!

After all, our DNA gets damaged approximately 1 million times per day. I am wondering what it is I did to damage my DNA a million times yesterday and what I will hopefully do today also. Is there some advantage to DNA damage? Suppose I take a real easy day and only damage my DNA 500,000 times, by, say, staying in bed all day? Would that be better or worse? If I am really damaging my DNA a lot, am I having more fun than if I am not? I am thinking it ties  in with fun. The more fun you have, the more DNA damage you get.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m off to damage some DNA! Be back in a bit!

Alt Left: If the Rate of Homosexuality in Populations Can Increase or Decrease, What’s to Stop It from Going Full-blown to 100% or Even 0? Do Humans Just Reap the Most Benefits by Having Homosexuals at 10%?

Answered on Quora.

The 10% figure is one of the biggest lies out there, but everyone believes it. It is repeated by gay activists and the Gay Lobby like a mantra, but it is almost certainly not true. It is based on the Kinsey Study, but even the Kinsey Study did not find that 10% of the population were truly gay in the way a gay person is now.

Like anyone else, gay people would like to increase their numbers. I don’t blame them.

If I were gay, I would want as many hot men available to date as possible. The fact that 97% of males are not gay must be very depressing to gay men. I think it would make me not only depressed but confused. How could I tell which men were gay and which were not?
Gaydar is another lie of the Gay Lobby. The truth is it doesn’t even work. Gay men hit on straight men all the time thinking that we straight men are gay. Obviously their Gaydar is broken. So if Gaydar doesn’t work and is just a conceit, and you really can’t figure out if a man is gay or not, what is a gay man to do? I am thinking it must be Hellish. What infernal confusion!

The truth is that many population studies in the US consistently find that at the most 3% of the US population identifies themselves as gay. There may be some closet cases lying in the surveys, but I doubt if there are many. In some studies, half of those 3% are married to women! How is that compatible with these studies being flawed by mass hidden closet cases? They keep doing the surveys, and they keep coming up with at the most 3% of men are gay. So we have to use the 3% figure in talking about the gay percentage of the population.

Gay activists and their Lobby hate these low figures because they think there is strength in numbers. They think that if people think there are only a tiny number of gay men, people will be freer to bully and persecute them. Whereas if they are a large figure like 10%, people will accept them more. I am not sure if it is true. Maybe it is. But they’re still lying, even if they are lying for a good reason. The road to Hell is paved with good intentions.

I would like to differentiate between gay men in general and gay activists and the Gay Lobby. Quite a few gay men dislike the Lobby and the activists. I have a gay friend who despises both of them. He says gay men just need to get married, move to the suburbs in a nice house and live quietly and unobtrusively like the rest of their neighbors. I concur!

So please do not think that by attacking the activists and the Lobby I am attacking all gay men. Certainly not. In fact, I encourage gay men to reject both activism and the Lobby. They’re counterproductive, and ~80% of the things they say are flat out lies. Gay activism, like all the other Identity Politics, is just propaganda. As feminism is nothing but propaganda for women, gay activism is nothing but propaganda for gays.

Nevertheless, I encourage all gay men to fight for their basic rights. I just don’t think lying is the right way to get what’s due to them. Not only will I support them, but I will help them, as I participate in some worthy gay political campaigns!

Surveys done with medical students found that ~3–4% of men identify as gay, gay being 0–100 to 20–80 on a scale orientation where 0–100 = completely gay. Another 2% identify as gay-leaning bisexuals, these being 30–70 to 40–60 on the same scale. Only 1% of men identify as fully bisexual, showing the stereotype about few people being purely bisexual is based on fact.

Adding up the numbers, 6% of men in these surveys identify as leaning gay, either bisexual or fully gay. Keep in mind that 2% of those men have a pretty strong lean towards women too, so they are not that gay. Another 1% are the “pure bis” who cannot logically be seen as gay either, neither can they be seen as straight. These are the people most perfectly identified as bisexual.

So population surveys get 3%, and medical student surveys get 6%. I don’t know what to do. Let’s go by majority rules and take the population surveys and say that 3% of men are gay.

This figure tends to be pretty steady for whatever reason. My research leads me to believe that true biological homosexuality (which surely exists and is the case with most gay men) is caused by hormonal aberrations and abnormalities in the womb. I doubt if it is genetic. There is some pretty good evidence leading to this conclusion. For whatever reason, these hormonal aberrations seem to occur in only ~3% of male births, and at least in the last few decades, nothing changes that.

Adding weight to my theory, there is research out there that shows that after 1990 in the Czech Republic, great efforts were put into monitoring pregnant women, adjusting their hormonal levels to the proper level, and keeping them from going off. Incredibly, research showed that this effort caused the rates of homosexuality and transsexualism to plummet. Not collapse but plummet.

Therefore, there may indeed by a “cure” for male homosexuality or at least a way to prevent it. I assure you that the Gay Lobby does wish to do anything to prevent homosexuality and transsexualism even if the mother desires this. But this shows how we might be able to artificially lower or even raise the rate of male homosexuality.
Now since the rate seems to be at a steady rate of 3%, and all evidence seems to be that the 3% rate (or lower) is the norm all over the world for biological male homosexuality, I would say we have nothing to worry about gay men taking over the world, though some of the real radicals would love to do that, trust me. Go read some of their documents. But the vast majority of gay men reject this gay chauvinism or gay imperialism.

The rate is 3% now, and it will be 3% in the future, unless we start lowering it as above.

This is why the question does not make sense. If biological male homosexuality occurs at a steady low rate everywhere on Earth without change, the rate of such cannot go much higher than 3%, certainly not to 100%, and it will not go down zero either, at least naturally on its own.

On the other hand, straight men have a tremendous potential for bisexuality. There are societies currently and in the past where very high percentages of men (up to 95%) engaged in regular sex with men (while also having lots of sex with women) throughout their lives. So you can definitely end up with societies like Afghanistan where many straight (by sexual orientation) men engage in homosexual behavior.
We must distinguish between orientation and behavior. They tend to follow each other pretty well but not always. Ancient Greece and Rome are good examples of where they can diverge a lot.

Now if you want to ask what would happen if 100% of men were behaviorally bisexual and were engaging in sex with men on a regular basis as in Ancient Greece and Rome, that’s another question, and I don’t think you questioner is asking that here. Personally I think it would be utterly catastrophic, although gay men would think they were in Paradise. Then again, the sky has not fallen in Afghanistan, where something like this is already going on.

Male homosexuality is bad for society. It brings along a whole host of problems and yes, diseases, along with it which impose considerable cost on society. I would like to add that these problems impose these costs on gay men themselves in terms of mental and physical illness, a whole lot of very sketchy behavior, and a culture that does not seem to be healthy at all in many ways. Despite the societal effects, the overwhelming costs of these problems are borne by gay men themselves.

Nevertheless, I feel that these are gay men’s problems. It is unspeakably rude and selfish to say that gay men’s problems which hurt them so much are terrible for the rest of us for whatever reason. It’s like someone walks into your house with a broken leg wanting help and you scream at him for ruining your day. How rude! How selfish!
Gay men’s problems are for them to solve. We need to stay out of it. If they want to deal with this stuff, let them go to it. We will help them, but the ball’s in their court.

I would like to point out that lots of things are not good for society, but we allow or tolerate them anyway, as it’s just not the place of society or the state to regulate people’s behavior, lifestyles, and choices.

In terms of the costs to society, yes there are some, especially in disease burden and medical expenses, but keep in mind that gay men are only 3% of the male population and a tiny 1.5% of the total population. Basically, whatever problems male homosexuality causes, we in the US can handle them very easily because gay men’s numbers are so small. If the percentages of gay men were to climb radically beyond 3%, the costs to society would be much more severe, and it would be something we could not deal with well. But that’s a whole other hypothetical problem.

As far as benefits go, I am going to be a radical here and say that society as a whole probably reaps exactly zero benefits from homosexuality either male or female. The effects on society are either negative or (mostly) neutral, but even when they are negative, their tiny numbers allow us to handle these effects well.

For the life of me, as a straight man, I cannot fathom any benefits from having gay men in my society. Somebody needs to clue me here. What’s in it for me, or for straight society as a whole? Color me confused!

Most straight men would probably be perfectly happy to never deal with another gay man for the rest of our lives. It’s not that they are horrible for us, but there’s no benefit at all, and there is a certain downside (they constantly try to seduce us). Most of us don’t really hate them at all (we are more indifferent towards them than anything else) but we don’t feel any special love for them, and I wager they would not be missed.

Nevertheless, despite this fact of there being no benefit to us, we straight men need to support full rights for biologically gay men. We need to wish for them the same happy and healthy lives as we do for ourselves, not even 1% less.

Please realize that these men did not choose to be this way. We straight men are straight only due to sheer luck and a roll of the genetic dice. Any of us could have ended up gay too. If you are straight, try to imagine if you had been wired up gay instead. Imagine yourself just as you are, except you are a gay man instead of a straight man. That’s called empathy. What would you like to the world to be like? This is the world that straight men need to create for gay men, not for any particular reason, but only because it’s simply the right thing to do.

No matter what we straight men think about male homosexuality (and a lot of us are profoundly repulsed by it), nevertheless at the end of the day, we have to be kind.
