Are homosexuals insane? Two homosexuals in Baja California because a marriage counselor who by local law must sign off on the process believes they may be insane.
The behavior of the homosexuals is bizarre, strange, baffling, puzzling, irrational, or possibly “insane” as a matter of context. One of the great victories of Anglosphere and especially American culture is to normalize certain kinds of behavior that in any other context are very strange. This applies obviously to homosexuality, but more specifically here to a kind of behavior that goes by the noble names of “free speech”, “protest”, “the redress of grievances”, “civil disobedience”, but what is actually harassment and disruption by groups favored by the elite.
The marriage counselor, Angelica Gonzalez Sanchez, reports that the homosexuals (I am not going to say “the men”, or “the couple”) followed her out of her office and acted “aggressively and impertinently” demanding answers for her refusal.
For the normal person, all interactions with the government are conducted politely and submissively. In most cases you will get your paper stamped and be on your way. In other cases, like with construction permits, the approval is very much at the whim of the office you are petitioning. In any case if it does not go well, you will most definitely not follow the bureaucrat out of the office demanding answers. If you were to, the police would be called. You might escape arrest, but you would be given an aggressive dressing down.
Under normal norms of civility and social functioning, interactions with other people occur in certain places under certain conditions. You speak with people politely, at an appointed meeting place and time. Animated behavior and heated words are only acceptable between those on intimate terms in private. If you don’t like what someone is doing, you can’t really apply threats, harassment, or social discomfort to change their behavior.
The innovation that changed this first, was the concept of “civil disobedience”. Thoreau introduced the idea that citizens could and should simply disobey or ignore laws they did not agree with. The idea was already deeply embedded in Protestant culture, but the Mexican-American War provided an opportunity to extend it to politics in a democratic country.
Disobeying the law normally creates a great deal of pain for the violator, which is the whole point of laws. Convictions, fines, and jail time ruin a normal person. People at the bottom of society don’t care. Who else can violate laws?
Here’s the thing- all the traditional methods of influence the left- street demonstrations, sit-ins, picketing, street confrontations- are frequently technically illegal, and could theoretically involve significant jail time. But while demonstrators are sometimes arrested, they are almost always released on the scene and pay only a token fine.
Why? Because the powers that be like the left, are the left and want these activities to proceed uninhibited.
What does all this have to do with two homosexuals trying to get married in Baja? These customs are most specifically American, to a lesser extent English, and to a slightly lesser extent continental European. They are customs, and not as we are supposed to believe as Americans, immutable laws of social behavior. An American bureaucrat would not be surprised at all to be accosted by leftist activists outside his office, and confronted in an aggressive and vaguely threatening matter. He would expect it, and probably avoid the confrontation by doing what they wanted in the first place. A Mexican bureaucrat, while familiar in a general sense with this type of behavior, might not expect it.
Leftism is very, very dependent on harassment, humiliation, and intimidation. People are naturally very easily influenced by this. Mrs. Gonzalez Sanchez is simply applying conventional logic to the situation- one, that pre-marital counseling can only be performed for people who can by natural law be married, and two, that people aggressively confronting her in the street, about a situation to be discussed and deliberated by the principles of science and law in an office, may be mentally unbalanced.
How this will play out in Mexico I can’t say. In the US she would be fired, and another marriage counselor directed to rubber-stamp the paperwork. I don’t think Mexican government is so pliable, but I don’t know.
Are homosexuals insane? No, Anglospheric society is insane.
