Sentient, you can read into it what you want, but his words are exactly how I feel. He doesn't just think "sexuality is diverse"; he thinks sexuality is so diverse that it can't be "reduced to binary terms." Even in the time of our discussion on here, I have included links that attack the construct validity of dichotomous sexual orientation, which is exactly what Vidal has done. It's kind of like pointing out the absurdity that anyone would be biologically exclusively attracted to one sex when sexuality is so complex.For the record, I do see how a man of your faith could interpret it differently, as if sexuality is so complex that it cannot be accurately defined by singling out one attribute like sex. Doing so might even be deceptive, but not necessarily untrue.
Thank you The Nerd. Just asked to be a member.
Hi all...first time I post here but watching these videos is making me feel not too bad about being teased in high school......really. I can't believe that was the way it was back then.
@SentientJust out of curiosity, what is it that you think separates Vidal's view from any other view that all humans have the potential to be attracted to both sexes (aka "are bisexual") that gives his more validity?@Dallas GaytheistI think Gore Vidal is me? Also, that propaganda video is terrible... I hate how harmful ignorance can be...
It was rumored that Rock Hudson and Anthony Perkins had some flings. Hot!
Admitting to having gay sex but saying you didn't like it...uh, yeah. That's kind of like saying you smoked pot but didn't inhale.
Thanks for the video, Sentient! It's interesting and encouraging to draw parallels with modern issues for me. Also, who was that man at 6:30? What he said is applicable even today. It's amazing he could say something so progressive that it still needs to be said 40+ years later. I tried searching for his quote, but I only got 1 hit on reddit with no name.
That was an amazing video. I tend to forget how things were back then. I was a junior in high school when this was broadcast and I was madly in love with my best friend, Bill. Even though I was in love with another boy and engaged in homosexuality, it took me years after this to admit to being a homosexual. I rationalized it all by telling myself that I had some homosexual feelings, but that I was not a homosexual. I was a good person and homosexuals were terrible people, so I could not possibly be a homosexual. It took three years of therapy to recover from the effects of this type of propaganda and prejudice. It amazes me how much has changed since then. Thanks for sharing that video.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
@Dallas Gaytheist"Yummy, yummy, yummy, I got love in my tummy."Out of curiosity, who is dominant in your fantasies with him?
Social in-equality and homelessness of Gay and Lesbian Youth
Okay, Gaytheist, now you've done it! I read that "did I read that right" business and my jaw just HIT THE FLOOR! I'll be the rest of the day getting it back in my mouth!
