Education and Homosexuality

Half Sigma likes to emphasize that socially conservative ideas don’t appeal to “well-educated”, intelligent, or affluent people. Intelligence and affluence are easily measurable and observable phenomena, but education usually just means having attended an institution for a given period of time.

I was reading a column in a paper today, and the writer commented on how well a gay marriage issue had done with “young, well-educated” voters. These voters can be observed and measured to be young, but are they well-educated?

If you believe homosexuality is normal and healthy, and homosexuals should be allowed to marry each other, you are clearly not well-educated. You are either anti-educated- indoctrinated to believe something that is obviously wrong- or a fool, or both.

Half Sigma does however appreciate that education is largely a social, and socializing experience. It is largely about learning what the right sort of people, the people who run things believe, and learning how to act around them.

But “education” that produces plainly anti-life attitudes is destructive and benefits no one. People of normal and healthy mentality have to suffer through this and learn how to lie to be accepted as members of polite society. “Education” that produces fools and liars is no such thing.

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.

    I was at Steve Sailer’s blog, reading through comments in response to his “Romney Core vs. Obama Fringe” phenomenon. Most of the commentors seemed to think he was spot-on, but one liberal fumed that “the whole world recognizes that Obama is better” and that the retrograde “rednecks” were a dying species, and that those young people who were “ambitious” would come around to the Liberal side of the trough sooner or later.

    Forget for a moment that a president is not meant to govern or seek the approval of “the world,” and that sometimes pissing off other countries in order to defend your own populace is a prerequisite to good leadership. The word this liberal used was “ambitious.” It was a stunning admission, brought to the surface probably because he was too angry to couch his doctrine in the cloak of moral rectitude. Those who want to gain power will believe what liberals believe, he was saying; or they will at least espouse those beliefs. It is not about being right. Or doing the morally correct thing. It is about advancing yourself.

    I read reactionosphere blogs, I’ve got a fairly open mind, I even read Christian reactionosphere blogs. But I really don’t see what’s wrong with homosexuality, and I can’t see what problems allowing homosexuals to marry will do. Please can you explain?

    • A rectum is not a vagina. The organs serve entirely different purposes. Attraction to and sexual activity with members of one’s own gender is as the Catholic Church says, “objectively disordered”. All arguments for sexual libertinism are specious. If you are really interested I can expound further.
