    If they get to call gay people who stop having gay sex “former homosexuals” can we call straight people who stop having straight sex “former heterosexuals”?

    The Paranoia Switch by Martha Stout (

    These familiar history McCarthyism, the World War II internment of Japanese-Americans, and the rise of the Klu Klux Klan after the Civil War – are three American examples of what I have called “limbic wars.” Every limbic war can be divided into six stages.

    These stages do not have distinct beginning or ends, but rather merge, almost imperceptibly, each into the next. The first phase always involves a traumatizing event, usually a war or an attack. The five subsequent stages are essential reaction to the fear instilled in people minds by the initial tragedy.

    The second stage is the all-important one. If leaders willing to us the paranoia switch are not embraced by the people, a limbic war may not occur at all, and the unhappy unfolding of Stages 3 through 6 can be avoided. If they accept the fear brokers, the process continues into its third stage.

    The Six Stages of Limbic War
    1. Group Trauma
    2. Fear Brokers
    3. Scapegoatism
    4. Cultural Regression
    5. Recognition & Backlash
    6. Regret & Amnesia

    Ten Behavioral Characteristics of Fear Brokers
    1. Fear brokers speak to us of fear, dangerous people and frightening situations
    2. Fear brokers are not limited by facts; they use alarming “unfacts”
    3. Fear brokers tend to accuse those who disagree with them of being unpatriotic or naïve
    4. Feat brokers look good
    5. Fear brokers behave like archetypal parents
    6. Fear brokers shame us over sex
    7. Fear brokers praise us for being moral and heroic, contradicting as it is
    8. Fear brokers project personal infallibility
    9. Fear brokers are secretive, and are certain that other people too, are keeping dangerous secrets
    10. Fear brokers use language that pulls for primitive affect

    The Paranoia Switch by Martha Stout (

    It is well known that, eventually McCarthy was not so much defeated as he was vanquished by his own dishonesty & arrogance, and by trying to extend his reach into the military. In 1953, he attempted to discredit Robert Stevens, then Secretary of the Army.

    President Eisenhower, formerly the Supreme Commander of the victorious Allied Forces in Europe, was incensed, as were others in the Army, who took the occasion to disclose information about McCarthy to journalist, known to despise him

    The Senate investigations into the US Army were televises, and form their homes, twenty two million people witnessed McCarthy’s malicious and breathtakingly bombastic performance.

    Senators on both sides of the aisle were embarrassed before the American people, and on December 2, 1954, by a vote of sixty-seven to twenty two, the full Senate passed a resolution condemning Joseph McCarthy for abusing his power as a senator and for behavior that was “contrary to senatorial traditions.”

    After that, he remained in the Senate, but was virtually ignored by the White House, his colleagues in Congress, and most of the American media.

    His career had come full circle, and he was an isolated figure once again, powerless to continue the limbic war he ad initiated again his own country. Two and a half years after he was censure, at the age of forty-eight, Joseph McCarthy died of alcohol-induced cirrhosis of the liver.

    Oh THE CHILDREN again. Those poor “children” have been publicized so much, but I haven’t seen them yet. I wish someone would make a movie called “won’t someone think of the children” and profile all of the mistreated and abused children heterosexuals continue to have and regret only to have them locked up in institutions when they finally lose their minds. There are actually real children like this all over the world, not these intentionally dreamed up fantasy “children”.

    Isn’t it so easy to help someone only invented to need help? Quit dreaming up “children” and use this bit of your time and money to actually help real children.

    actually the darkness and deception of corporate greed, the culture of celebrity and reality TV are destroying America…

  8. Hey Darlin' says

    To speak to the “thousands of former homosexuals”, I would like to add that there are also tens of thousands, if not hunderds of thousands, of former heterosexuals who are now able to live their true life thanks to the advancements of organizations such as to HRC.

  9. woodroad34d says

    To semi-quote scripture of a man-made belief that’s based on crazy people who’ve either had sun stroke or were just lunatics and barbarians, and to throw the weight of THAT craziness against the HRC is lunacy times lunacy (I feel like that cute guy from the Geico commercial when they’re talking about infinity times infinity–my head explodes). These people should be in an insane asylum–their arguments are based on nothing but their feelings and not truth so it all belies their sad mental state and their baseless bigotry.

  10. bill johnson says

    Oh and apparently it’s a myth that gay people aren’t sexually attracted to heterosexuals. Because you know there is no such thing as gay people, just heterosexuals who chose to engage in homosexual acts.

    And the supposedly thousands of ex gays outnumber the millions of gay people because thousands is the bigger number right?

    They must have agreed before hand that whoever was the least over the top would buy the group lunch because it got progressively more absurd as the event went on.

  11. Onnyjay says

    “How do I lie to thee? Let me count the ways….” How many lies can you find in the quotes provided in this brief story? Yet the popular media let them get away with it, again and again.

    “Babs” La Barbra and the rest traffic in shopworn nonsense that the teabaggers, birthers and other gullible louts still buy because the corporate-owned media never tell them otherwise: Dumb hate sells better than simple truth, apparently.

    Wake up, people, it’s time to make some REAL noise to let them know we’re wise to their schemes and we’re not buying their bullsh*t.

  12. Keith says

    I’m not taking the opposition’s side in any way, but I think the use of the title “Clown Car of Anti-Gay Hate. . .” is not appropriate for a blog of this type. They are entitled to their opinion and free speech, even if it is misguided and irresponsible in the best of terms. No one really paid attention to them or their tripe, so why should we? The more attention you give them, the more power you give them that they don’t really deserve or for which they are entitled. Actually, the more they conduct these actions, the less seriously anyone takes them seriously.

  13. jamal49 says

    Keith, it IS appropriate for a blog of this type. In case you arrived late to the party, millions have paid attention to their tripe over the years (e.g., the 2004 elections). Their bigotry and hatred have harmed many (suicides, rejections by families, loss of spiritual community, bullying, etc.). Therefore, they should be called out for their “opinion” and their abuse of free speech. Their “opinions” kill and hurt. They aren’t just misguided or irresponsible. They are lethal. Those people deserve all the ridicule and reprobation being posted here. And, again, don’t believe that there aren’t millions who take them seriously. There are. And they vote. Worse, they reproduce.

  14. anon says

    I think this is a sign they might be a bit desperate. They’re banding together in an attempt to draw media attention, and trying to pick “opposition” symbols (like when protesters go to the White House), though the HRC headquarters is hardly a well known place. Had they any streetwise political sense at all, they would have protested in front of the Stonewall bar in NY. Plus, their immoderate language suggests they are not seeking compromise but attempting to regain their old momentum. However, it’s so over-the-top it’s laughable.

    This is the kind of event that just begs for a cream pie in the face.

    Wasn’t it Anita Bryant that got cream-pied? It’s a shame when some gay traditions are lost, but I suppose with the price of pie going up….

  17. Hey Darlin' says

    Desmond, Yeah that was her, “at least it was a fruit pie” she stated as her forked tongue licked it from her lips.

  18. Queer Supremacist says

    They’ll go after gays in other countries once they lose the ability to go after us here. They’re doubling down on their plans to kill gay Africans, and I have no doubt they were all involved in fomenting the riots in France.

    How far are we willing to go to protect our lives?

  19. Bryan says

    How wicked! In the New England sense of the word.

    The only thing more satisfying than being called “wicked” is being given the power to cause earthquakes and tornadoes by having sex.

    Wrecking the nuclear family, destroying marriage, and turning America socialist pale by comparison.

  20. DannyEastVillage says

    say what you like about this poor fool’s delusions, but I think it’s good that he’s not spending *all* his time looking at gay porn.
