21 - Every sperm is sacred


Op de nieuwsgroep be.politics woedt al dagen een debat over het zgn. homohuwelijk, dat de Paus zo onwelgevallig is.
Zoals steeds in dergelijke "debatten" komt het vaak tot surrealitische clashes tussen voor- en tegenstanders. De homofoben trekken zoals gewoonlijk alle orgels open over de onnatuurlijkheid van homosexualiteit, biologistische fantasiën over het ontstaan van deze "afwijking", de teleologie van sperma, van de penis, de vagina en de anus, - en het axioma dat het huwelijk een specifieke hetero-instelling is die dient om kinderen te produceren. En als de godsdienstfanaten zich in de kakofonie mengen wordt het pas echt leuk.
Ten behoeve van deze simpele zielen, de volgende tekst over het verschijnsel "heterosexualiteit".

WHAT EXACTLY IS HETEROSEXUALITY AND WHAT CAUSES IT?

What it is:
Heterosexuality is a condition in which people have a driving emotional and sexual interest in members of the opposite sex. Because of the anatomical, physiological, social and cultural limitations involved, thereare formidable obstacles to be overcome. However, many heterosexuals look upon this as a challenge and approach it with ingenuity and energy. Indeedit can be said that most heterosexuals are obsessed with the gratification of their curious desires.

Wat causes it:
Hormonal imbalance? Economic conditions? Fear of death? Cultural deprivation? Pathological condition? Social conditioning? Childhood trauma? Parental program?

Hormonal imbalance
One theory advanced is that heterosexuals have an imbalance in their sex hormones. Instead of the normal mixture of the two, they have an excess of one or a dearth of the other, resulting in an inability to enjoy full and satisfying relationships with their own sex.

Economic conditioning
Our society grants financial and other incentives for exclusively (i.e.neurotic) heterosexual coupling: from tax concessions to council houses. To be gay is expensive and many people simply cannot afford it.

Fear of death
A terror of mortality lies beneath much heterosexual coupling. Driven to perpetuate themselves at any cost, most heterosexuals are indifferent to the prospect of the world-wide famine that will result if the present population explosion continues unchecked.

Cultural deprivation
Most heterosexuals will be found to have come from a background in which an appreciation of the beauty of their own bodies has been ruthlessly suppressed. Heterosexual men in particular think themselves 'ugly', beauty being ascribed only to women. Many psychic disorders stem from thisself-rejection.

Pathological condition
Many heterosexuals claim that they were just 'born that way'. Unfortunately this doesn't hold water. All human beings are the result of the interaction between their substance and their environment and heterosexuals, like the rest of us, must share the responsibility for their condition.

Social conditioning
Many unthinking heterosexuals succumb to the daily bombardment of conditioning from the mass media and live out their lives trapped inoppressive stereotypes. We should feel compassion for such people, not hostility, for their rejection of all those parts of the self that do not conform to the 'married-couple' ideal, is a measure of their loss of contact with their own unique sexuality.

Childhood trauma
A bad experience with a member of the same sex while young may cause rejection of all members of the same sex through fear. The desire continues in the subconscious and emerges as a heterosexual neurosis.

Parental problems
In most cases of compulsive heterosexual behavior, the parents will befound to have suffered from similar difficulties.

Heterosexuality as disease Dank je Hugo voor dit haast Monty Pythonesk stuk over "heterosexuality". Mijn dag kan niet meer stuk!

Maar draai of keer het zoals je wil: als heterosexueel geaarde behaarde en bebaarde mens voel ik deze storing als verdomde prettig & aangenaam!

Ziektebesef Zolang je maar ziektebesef hebt en je realiseert dat God die zondige toestand niet gewenst heeft ;-)

Ten aspirin couldn’t betaeuben the ache ... . Van ziektebesef gesproken: "The homofoben pull as usually all organs open", wat zijn dat voor mensen zeg, zomaar vanalles open trekken ;-)) -- ik lach me altijd rot met die vertalingen.

Heb er hier nog eentje opgesnort waarin James Lileks zich tegoed doet aan de wonderen der vertaalcomputer:

En inderdaad, "I fainted once, and hit my head on the desk; ten aspirin couldn’t betaeuben the ache." Zalig!

Groetjes!
