Linda Harvey: All Gays are Closeted Heterosexuals

Mission America wingnut Linda Harvey, in a column pushing her new book Maybe He's Not Gay, makes the absurd claim that all gays are closeted heterosexuals in a new quacky WorldNetDaily column.:

HarveyNothing like a “gay gene” has been found. Surely, with the Western elites’ affection for “gay rights,” a Nobel Prize would be the reward if such a discovery were on record. If Barack Obama can get one for doing nothing, this mythical researcher would be a shoe-in.

But it hasn’t happened and it won’t, because there’s a simple fact of human life: We are created to mate with someone of the opposite sex. Any other sexual practice is artificial and often harmful, and the confused folks with those desires need a reality check. It’s totally possible to leave it all in the past, as the world’s many ex-homosexuals have done.

But try to tell that to the Human Rights Campaign, GLAAD, and the various self-important “gay” bloggers. With claws and teeth exposed, the monster purveyors of “tolerance” try to come off as noble moralists, but confront them with the truth and the artifice falls. Their reactions are violent for a simple reason: fear.

They wonder if they might actually be heterosexuals after all.

Harvey believes that LGBT opposition to Russia's ban on gay propaganda is because it will stop gays from exerting their mind-bending influence on children:

The infuriated “gays” are all closet heterosexuals, terrified someone will find out and blow the lid off this movement.

Remember that decades-old standby claim of the “gay lobby,” that those who concentrate on exposing and fighting the homosexual agenda must harbor repressed “gay” desires?

Well, no more so than plumbers and auto repairmen might be called “obsessed” with pipes and transmissions. It’s because something is broken and needs to be fixed. And the brokenness is getting in the way of a functioning pipe, car – or culture.

She finally concludes:

The reality is, no one is a homosexual and everyone is a heterosexual. And those who have developed, fantasized and nurtured those “gay” feelings really don’t like reality. It makes them want to attack. Or it makes them start vicious organizations like GLAAD, to make the lies seem real and respectable.

    Sorry, Linda, but I’m no more a closeted heterosexual than you are a closeted sane person. Get over it and STFU about gays. You’ve proven you know nothing about us.

  2. Don says

    And then there are those for whom it doesn’t matter because no other human would go near them. This is a means by which our species protects itself from having any more like you.

  3. Daniel says

    When people talk about there being no “gay gene”, what it really shows is that they know nothing about genes. There’s also not a “straight gene” or a left handed gene.

    “And those who have developed, fantasized and nurtured those “gay” feelings really don’t like reality.”

    “Don’t like reality”??? I think she’s talking about herself, here.

  5. JackFknTwist says

    Why do the most patently stupid mouths purport to speak definitively on subjects on which they have no knowledge, scientific or otherwise.

    They blather opinions as revealed truths .

    It must be one of the downsides of the right of free speech, that we sane ones have to listen to deranged harpies spout notions which came to them sitting on the toilet bowl.
    Off with her head !

  6. Mark says

    wow. Just wow. How do these thought processes work? How can she come to these conclusions? I truly can not understand how anyone with one shred of knowledge of what GLBT people have gone through, how many of us have committed suicide, been beaten and killed, can come up with this. I am really shocked at the level of sheer stupidity.

  7. CPT_Doom says

    Harvey is right. If not for the relentless barrage of pro-gay propaganda from my Catholic School, Church and parents, I would have totally ended up straight. Oh, wait, that never happened at all.

  8. says

    She’s been reading Towleroad.

    Here’s a little more ‘truth’ for you Linda. Homosexuals have existed throughout history. Long before there was a western world with ‘western elites’ there were civilizations that respected all sexualities. Condemnation for orientation is a creation of Abrahamic based religions. Religions that ask for the sacrifice of their LGBT children as proof of their ‘faith’.

    Keep pushing those ‘no gays’ and ‘ex-gay’ tropes and writing articles like this that show not only your ignorance but also your venom.

    Church reformers see this and get a little better idea of what we’ve been fighting for 2000 years.

  9. jexer says

    Oh Really? Well then, by that kind of absurd ‘reasoned logic’ … There’s no such thing as Christians… because everyone must be a closet atheist as well!

  10. MArk says

    To this kind of people is all about the money, they don’t care facts or that they may gamble with your personal life, just dont feed them, i’m sure there’s legal ways to deal with this people without giving them the free publicity they seek

  11. Brian G says

    Amazingly, she basically states exactly what her quackery of a book states: “No one is Gay, just confused. Beat them and mistreat them until they’re straight”
    Sad, misguided woman who has nothing valuable to contribute to society.

    Or maybe they’re just sick and tired of hearing dehumanizing lies spouted by bigots such as yourself.

    Seriously, though, this is so outrageously, ridiculously false that it’s hilarious. Keep embarrassing yourself, Linda!

  13. johnny says

    It’s sad to be born so ugly inside and out, Linda. Must be the ugly gene. No Lifestyle Lift or Max Factor in the universe is going to disguise just how deep the hate goes into your soul.

    But they’re both a really good place to start. I think there’s a coupon code online for them.

  14. says

    I hear she is a real tiger in bed, where she displays her natural heterosexual nature in the missionary position, fervently whispering appropriate bible passages as her ex-gay husband fantasizes about that virile neighbor as he does his once-a-month duty.

    Biologically all primates …including humans…are bisexual.

    Women are nade to have sex with other women (synchronized cycles and together is more pleasureable than the sum of the parts separate.

    Men have a prostate than has pleasurable nerve endings in an area with none anywhere else and many just beyond the reach of fingers.

    Unlike bonobos, we have cultural taboos because some guys are turned off by butt sex.

    Remember that our hygiene is so much better than it used to be. No wonder gay sex would be considered disgusting.

  17. stevetalbert says

    And sex is also about power to a lot of people. Many men don’t want to be considered similar to a wonan because women were only property to be controlled.

    Today is only marginally better … re that Rep who thinks all wives should submit to their husband in all matters. And its impossible for husbands to be guilty of rape.

  18. jamal49 says

    At this point, one can only marvel at the fervent hatred and abject bitterness of Linda Harvey. I mean, it is impossible to read what she has written and not come to the conclusion that there can never, ever be any accommodation or rapprochement with the evangelical effluvia and fundamentalist filth for whom she speaks.

    Enough of her and her ilk’s nonsense! She can say what she wants. But, she should understand that there are consequences to what she says. None of those consequences will be pleasant for her.

    “Nothing like a “gay gene” has been found. Surely, with the Western elites’ affection for “gay rights,” a Nobel Prize would be the reward if such a discovery were on record. If Barack Obama can get one for doing nothing, this mythical researcher would be a shoe-in.”

    It’s misleading to attempt to paint one’s self as the victim of a world with affection for “gay rights”. Gay rights even under the pretense they are fictitious ARE human rights. If equality is a foreign concept, it may become inconvenient to live in a country where it’s guaranteed by the constitution despite the failed attempts to alter it, which haven’t gone unnoticed.

    “But it hasn’t happened and it won’t, because there’s a simple fact of human life: We are created to mate with someone of the opposite sex. Any other sexual practice is artificial and often harmful, and the confused folks with those desires need a reality check. It’s totally possible to leave it all in the past, as the world’s many ex-homosexuals have done.”

    A limited perspective of sex and attraction isn’t unusual even given modern knowledge and the availability of education unfortunately. The artifice of placing human beings any higher than the level of other beasts in relation to sexual impulses can lead to harmful and confusing comparisons. “Leaving it ALL in the past” has a certain ring to it but it rings false.

    “But try to tell that to the Human Rights Campaign, GLAAD, and the various self-important “gay” bloggers. With claws and teeth exposed, the monster purveyors of “tolerance” try to come off as noble moralists, but confront them with the truth and the artifice falls. Their reactions are violent for a simple reason: fear.”

    The attempt to mark the bravery shown by HRC and GLAAD as anything less shows a certain level of fear in itself, Self-importance indeed.

    “They wonder if they might actually be heterosexuals after all.”

    Experts in the field of heterosexuality may have been grossly overestimated.

  20. Chilled says

    Um – Linda Harvey, your PROJECTION defense mechanism is VERY MUCH SHOWING… Check yourself before you project yourself…

    “With claws and teeth exposed, the monster purveyors … try to come off as noble moralists, but confront them with the truth and the artifice falls. Their reactions are violent for a simple reason: fear.”

    “It’s because something is broken and needs to be fixed. And the brokenness is getting in the way of a functioning pipe, car – or culture.”

    “And those who have developed, fantasized and nurtured those [attitudes] really don’t like reality. It makes them want to attack. Or it makes them start vicious organizations … to make the lies seem real and respectable.”

  21. Chuck Mielke says

    More of the “Big Lie” strategy of mass influence. Surely, anyone who disagrees must represent “the Western Elite.” Looks like “western elite” is about to become the new code phrase for “intellectual,” “secular humanist,” “communist,” “atheist,” and any other “them” that the leading right-wingers want to hate.

  22. JackFknTwist says

    Let’s start a fund to send her to a country which agrees with her views, one that has women raped as a’cure’ for lesbianism and lashes and stones gays: Nigeria.

    I’m sure she can preach to the ‘converted’ there.

  23. says

    ‘Western’ is already being used by Russia & African fundamentalists in an effort to boost nationalism. It’s the oft used ‘us’ against ‘them’ tactic. When we engage directly it’s always proven false. Nigeria claiming that the violation of human rights against it’s LGBT citizens is a sovereign right falls flat when shown that it not only violates it’s own constitution but also international unions that they want to participate in. When religious extremism gets a foothold the best results are achieved when we have swift unilateral response that insists on respect for fundamental human rights an an essential to participation in a global community.

    Elitism bashing was used by Santorum in his candidacy to not much fanfare. ‘What a snob’ just didn’t have much zing.

    In the age of instant information Linda Harvey’s methodology of spreading lies is easily & quickly debunked. That’s the reason for her attack on ‘bloggers’. I relish it. Shows that our efforts are successful.

  24. james st. james says

    “Yes, it’s just an elaborate ruse, perpetrated by millions of people, for the purpose of — what exactly, Linda?”

    I’ll answer that: We do it to annoy her. And it’s working. So keep it up gay people. Make Linda suffer.

  25. Bernie says

    Ms. Harvey is THE meanest, stupidest and most hateful homophobic woman in the WORLD……..her ignorant statements make my veins pop! NONE of her statements are based on reality, logic or rationalism….in fact she is telling me HOW I feel and no one can do that but me……

  26. alberto says

    Well whit that same line of reasoning one could also argue that all heterosexuals are closeted homosexuals. These people have not a clue. I wonder if she is a closeted lesbian? Also I wonder if scientists have found the “heterosexual” gene as well.
    Mind bending? Wow I did not know I had such super powers. I guess now I went from gay to mutant!
    Harvey I will also respond to your “brokenness” claim this way: I am not broken, I am not a tool or a piece of furniture or anything else for that matter, I am a human being, hopefully, like you and I am perfect the way I am. If God allowed me to be alive is because he must have a purpose and as such I will not go against his will. Wake up to REALITY!!!
