WHAT IS HOMOPHOBIA ?
Homophobia is a terrible affliction which ruins the lives of thousands of people and those around them. Its causes are not known but addiction to religion and right wing politics agravate the condition.
The one certain thing is that no one has to continue to suffer any more under it's heavy burden. It is not genetic in origin but is sometimes a result of conditioning while young, especially through indoctrination by religious sects.
Some people feel that it is a phase all young people go through but one which most grow out of as they mature. Unfortunately for some unknown reason some homophobes appear to have never matured properly and although they are physically adults, some parts of their personality gets stuck in adolescense.
For them love can only happen between the female half of the population and the other half which is male. This rules out all acts of love between the other 50 per cent of the human race.
WHAT EFFECT DOES HOMOPHOBIA HAVE ON SUFFERERS ?
Sufferers of Homophobia are pretty sad cases, their life ruined by their irrational hatreds and fears. They often have violent tendencies and suffer from paranoia.
One medical fact is that, especially in very serious cases of the illness, the sufferer does have homosexual feelings and it is the internal fight against those feelings which brings on the homophobic attacks.
There have been many cases of public figures taking a homophobic stance who later have been shown to actually be homosexual.
Homophobia disrupts society by attempting to encourage official discrimination against perfectly normal human beings who happen to love someone of the same sex.
WHAT DO HOMOPHOBES BASE THEIR REASONING ON ?
Homophobes whose illness is caused by religious indoctrination often use words found in an old book called the Bible. This is a collection of ancient manuscripts written a couple of thousand years ago in the claustrophobic world of the middle east. Over the years they have been translated from their ancient scripts, the meaning of which was not always clear even to scholars.
Religious indoctrination convinces some people especially those of an impressionable disposition, that every word in these manuscripts is true. The world WAS created in seven days, A guy called Adam WAS created by some great being and by removing one of Adam's ribs, this entity created woman.
Great stuff. Strange that these manuscripts do not show any real knowledge of how the world was created, it's incredible age, evolution, the true extent of the universe, electricity. No mention of dinasaurs who existed for perhaps one hundred million years and whose remains provide proof of their existence
This book contains the story of Jesus who is a kind of early socialist who goes round with a load of male friends spreading his ideas about what is right and wrong in the world. Religious homophobes never seem to see the irony of this. It does seem to suggest that their hero is not as other men.
Nor does their hero actually appear ever to be concerned about male sexuality, he is far too busy turning one loaf into a meal for a thousand people, parting the waters of the Red sea and other stuff like that.
In fact this fellow did talk a lot of sense. He talked a lot about loving one's fellow men even when they had human weaknesses. He pleaded for the poor and condemned the rich. He turned the money lenders out of the temples and seemed on the whole to be a fairly pleasant and enlightened kind of chap.
Along with his story, however, a lot of very old documents have been included which may have had some relevance to nomadic tribes wandering around the deserts of the Middle east several thousand years ago. In just one of these is a paragraph about men not lying with men as with women.
The same document also states that one must not wear garments made of more than one fibre so Polyester cotton shirts are out for the true believer.
In fact the bible contains sections approving of the raping women provided they come from another 'tribe' or are slaves, slavery itself, barbaric punishments and death, doom and destruction galore.
It has been used in history to justify all kinds of exploitation of other human beings, murder, beatings torture and the extermination of whole nations by another in the name of a god.
It also contains a gay love story, that of David and Jonathon.
SO WHAT DO I DO ?
First you must want to be cured. Give up all contact with religion. It will be hard and their may be peer pressure to continue to indulge. Stop going to any church, temple, mosque or synagogue.
Throw out any religious books especially those which claim to interpret the teachings found in the main religious books. Don't give them away to charity shops, they could fall into the hands of impressionable people and spread the disease.
Learn more about gay people. Look beyond the purely physical side, after all the number of straight people who practice anal sex throughout the world runs into hundreds of millions. Likewise oral sex. Even Presidents of great countries find it perfectly normal and practice it all the time.
See the love in gay relationships especially those which have lasted far longer than most marriages without any legal knot being tied.
See the physical beauty of those of your own sex. Acknowledge it exists. Examine your own relationships with members of your own sex. Recognise that some of the elements you find are in all relationships including gay ones. There is no thick line drawn where gay relationships start and end. Relationships between human beings is a spectrum not an 'either or' affair.
Make friends with people of your own sex. You don't have to jump into bed with them but get beyond the surface pleasantries to find the real person underneath. Few of us do this out of fear of where it may lead. There is a little homophobia in everyone !
Consider the traditional value of the roles played by many homosexuals in society. Even the most trusted bodyguard of the Queen of England was a gay man, known to her as one and respected by her. To her discredit, she allowed him to be hounded out of his job. No married man could have ever given the time and devotion the job demanded.
Many of the finest teachers, academics, politicians, explorers, entertainers, artists, musicians have been homosexual, giving their lives to their arts rather than raising families. A civilised society needs such people.
WHAT ABOUT POLITICAL CAUSES OF HOMOPHOBIA ?
In some ways this is easier to understand than homophobia caused by religion. Politicians have always used perceived enemies to stir people up. Those politicians who aim to recruit from the more disadvantages part of society, need a group who can be used to focus anger and resentment. Right wing organisations use many such groups including, blacks, asians, jews and gays to build the hatred on which they thrive.
This makes their supporters feel superior to whole groups of people to whom they are in reality totally inferior. They are encouraged to express this perceived superiority in violence, foul and threatening language and intimidating behaviour.
Many leaders of such organisations are themselves gay and exploit their supporters ruthlessly. The Nazis when they were rising to power had many gays among their top brass many of whom were disposed of when the time was right.
SO WHAT CAN I DO ?
Recognise that you are being used. The people who lead you couldn't care a four x about you. You are cannon fodder for the next battle, that's all.
When you have served your purpose you will end up just like those you are told to despise because your leaders despise you as well for being weak and stupid enough to believe the racist and homophobic crap they feed you.
Being used is one of the worst feelings in the world.
When you realise this you can look inside yourself. Perhaps you have supressed feelings for other men, you certainly enjoy their company and even share many of the trappings of the gay world in your love of cropped hair, boots, leather jackets, denims etc.
Turn on your so called leaders. Examine their real motives and beliefs. Look at the way they live and compare it with your own. You will soon realise how you are being folled every inch of the way.
THE BEST PHILOSOPHY IN THE WORLDS IS 'LIVE AND LET LIVE'
This is the philosophy the fascists and the religious bigots really hate. Without control of other peoples thoughts and actions, they have no power and power is what they are really about.
But the power they gain, you lose. You lose the power to think and reason for yourself and without that power you are not a real human being. For too long the world has endured wars, poverty, famines, the inhumanity of man to his fellow men all in the name of a religion or a political creed.
IT IS TIME TO STOP AND FOR MEN AND WOMEN OF GOODWILL TO SAY
'NO MORE !'
You know in your heart what you have to do. Do it today and make the world a better place for everyone, black, white, gay, straight, male, female, and of course for yourself whatever or whoever you are.
