Just Say “No”- To Gay Sex

Poles against gay sex use a simple warning graphic to express their dislike. It is of course based on the international standard for a prohibition symbol, usually based on a need for safety.

You’d see exactly the same symbol, only with a lit cigarette red-circled and crossed out, to prohibit smoking, for some combination of health and safety reasons. You can’t smoke at a gas station, or in an industrial setting involving flammable chemicals, to avoid fire or explosion; and you can’t smoke many other places for the threat to health and annoyance of cigarette smoke.

Many institutions and governments go to a great deal of trouble to discourage smoking in general, because it causes many long-term health problems. The issue of personal choice and freedom arises. Why shouldn’t people be able to smoke if they want to? If the behavior hurts no one else, what is the problem?

The problem is what economists call an “externality”, where the costs of something are born by others than the beneficiary. The classic example is pollution. Somebody benefits from the activity causing the pollution, but the some of the costs are borne by others. Liberals generally rigorously apply this fundamentally libertarian concept to any activity they want to constrain. And, truthfully, it’s fair. I don’t want to pay extra taxes or insurance premiums to support the dubious pleasure someone gains from inhaled nicotine.

Mysteriously, this desire to control the activity of others disappears when gay sex, most specifically anal intercourse, is involved. It has been known for about 30 years that anal intercourse is a highly effective method of spreading HIV. The logical response to this would have been to discourage and prohibit the activity as much as possible. But gays had recently become special, good people as opposed to gross, disgusting people, so this was not the case.

Does God prohibit sodomy? Regardless of what religious or moral beliefs you have, the scientific evidence is clear. Anal sex spreads incurable and difficult or impossible to treat diseases, not only HIV but syphilis. The concept of “safe sex” has been beaten to death for decades; but for whatever reasons, probably the difficulty of use, pleasure-limiting, and ineffectiveness of condoms in anal sex, many young gay men- born after all this became well known, 20% to 25% of them- are infected with HIV.

HIV is now treatable- death used to result after a few years, the source of various tear-jerking movies in the late 80’s and early 90’s, while today the infected seem to survive indefinitely- but it requires very expensive drugs, the cost of which is not reflected in taxes or insurance premiums paid by the infected. It is a cost borne by society as a whole.

Discouraging gay sex would be a positive thing for the overall health of society and the particular health of those who want to do it. “Gay rights” are not going to make Poland a better place. Unshamed and unrestricted, gays will engage in excessive self-destructive behavior.

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.

    Good article except for the use of the word “gay”, as they aint happy and joyful.

    I wonder when this problem will spread to straight community now that anal is considered so vital to a good sex life. The notion of the “poop shoot” as a sex organ or a woman having two holes is also going to be a disease spreader -in spite of or because of sex education?

    The correct response to limiting these externalities is to encourage long term commitment, marriage if you will, by Gay men. it’s promiscuity, not sex, that spreads the HIV virus.

    The author of this essay is just a moralistic busy body.

    • Philosphically I’m a libertarian- people should be able to do whatever they want. Obviously the best people to deal with problems affecting gays are gays themselves. But gays have had 30 years to figure out a way to eliminate or minimize HIV infection, but a substantial minority still suffers from it.

      I guess I’m falling into the conservative “double standards” trap. Tobacco smokers aren’t a special minority for liberals, so they can’t be compared to gays.

      “Long term commitment” Horse hockey. You and yours are part of the problem. Yeah,we’re moralistic busybodies who will eventually cause people like you to go back to the pit you crawled out of. You’ve got a large group of moralistic busybodies shoving your excrement in our faces, so you have no room to talk. You get back what you put out. Don’t like the heat, get the hell out of the kitchen.

  4. Not only gay sex, we must refuse lesbianism as well. Homosexuality is not the natural sexuality. We must not accept LGBT in any way. Homosexuality is spreading out diseases which are sexually transmitting very fast and it is more unsafe.

  5. How much of this problem spreads outside of the homosexual community? The down low brothaz do their part in spreading it to the black community at large, but bisexual men (or men having sex with men, or whatever phrase from sociological scholasticism you please) seem to be rarer within the European race. I’m mostly guessing, but I think most of the externalities in the form of venereal disease are confined within the homosexual community. And hey, they’re the ones not using condoms and engaging in risky behaviors. It is most likely that their bath house antics are not going to harm me.

    My main problem with homosexuals is their hysterical, attention whoring behavior and how said they bombard the normals with it day and night through the weaponry of the media industrial complex. Let them fuck off to their fabulouth gay neighborhoods, and keep their obscene pageantry, garish taste, and leftist politicking there. That means no more propagandising on Glee, no more square jawed, flat chested, boyish women pimping your labels on the runway, and no more acting like a teenaged girl in public. I consider this a fair, and even generous offer. The Poles and those similarly inclined in their distaste and disgust are gearing up for a pogrom, since the homosexual community (and George Soros’s Open Society goons, or whatever American NGO is pulling the strings here) can’t abide by out of sight, out of mind.

    (As for expensive pharmaceutical regimens and free health care, one could always refuse it. Or grant it anyways as a gift, if the homosexual community was to abide by an out of sight, out of mind policy.)

    Thrasymachus33308,
    It is interesting that both of these externalities can be eliminated by the same method – non-interference.If tax money was not redirected to pay for my health care,then tax payers would have no legitimate interest in my health,or behaviours with a putatively negative impact on the same.
    Similarity,if insurers were permitted to set their rates based solely on actuarial data for various risks,then every one who elected to engage in risky behaviour would pay a premium to offset the cost thereby incurred – as tobacco smokers have been doing for decades.
    The alternative to such is neutrality is exactly as you have described – using force and violence (Law and Government) to proscribe the undesirable behaviour(‘conservatives’), or to subsidise it (leftists).
