GAY BIRDS

What is the public attitude to gay people?

Scientists in the USA have been studying gay birds and have found that they sing to each other and preen each other.

(Research published in the journal Behavioural Ecology and Sociobiology - Same-sex birds form lasting bond - BBC)

The scientists studied young zebra finches.

When raised in same-sex groups, most of the birds acted gay.

When females were brought into a male group, five out of eight pairs of males ignored the females and remained with their male partner.

Dr Julie Elie, from the University of California, Berkeley, said: "same-sex individuals... interact... like male-female pairs."

Dr Elie said that, with gulls and albatrosses, "female partners copulate with a paired male then rear the young together."

Research by the advertising agencies has found that images of boys have a far wider appeal, for both men and women, than images of girls or women or men. In the novella Death in Venice, Aschenbach/Mann is the cerebral, sexually repressed, politically conservative, writer who has achieved fame but whose writing lacks deep insight into the world of love and lust. In Venice he lets sensual beauty into his life and goes astray. He becomes a slave to desire, feels tortured by guilt, and cannot relax. And his "dignity is rescued only by ... Death." Mann is warning us to avoid extremes.

The Old Testament was not keen on homosexual activity, because it did not lead to the production of lots of children for the tribe.

Today, in an over-populated world, the 'powers-that-be' may have decided to relax their attitudes.

Attitudes can be changed fairly easily.

Our attitude to Moslems is being changed. Turkey's Foreign Minister and Hilary Clinton, best of friends.

In 2001, we were brainwashed into thinking that Moslems were terrorists.

In 2011, with the Turks and many other Moslems now in the New World Order, we are being brainwashed into thinking that lots of Moslems are good guys.

The new enemy are those folks who protest against the bankers. Agents provocateurs must turn the protests violent.

But, there are still lots of homophobes.

For the Buddhists, all visual attraction is the reaction of the lower self. Fleshly charm does not last and is in a sense unreal. In other words, you don't need a girl/boyfriend; and thegirl/boyfriend's sexiness is a bit of an illusion. However, according to the Buddhists, avoiding sex, while continuing to think foul thoughts, is not good. Better to obtain physical outlet, while thinking wholesome thoughts. (aangirfan: THOMAS MANN)

The Rev George Hargreaves, whose family come from Trinidad and Tobago, is leader of the Scottish Christian Party, which believes that homosexuality is a sin.

According to The Times, 13 April 2007, (Times Online), Hargreaves made millions from his success on the gay club scene.

While he was a DJ in London, he shared a flat with his gay song-writing partner.

He wrote the gay anthem "So Macho" which was a hit in gay clubs in the United Kingdom in 1986. (Times Online)

The Rev Ian Watson, of the Church of Scotland, has attacked homosexual lifestyles, declaring that such people would not “inherit the kingdom of God.”

In his sermon, Watson invoked John Calvin and Martin Luther.

Jerome Bolsec published a life of Calvin, 'Vie de Calvin', in 1577.

According to Bolsec, Calvin frequently engaged in gay sex.

According to Bolsec, Calvin resigned his church post at Noyon, in France, because of the public exposure of his homosexuality.

Westheimer and Lopater's, Human Sexuality: A Psychosocial Perspective, Second Edition, refers to Martin Luther. (http://66.102.9.104/5)

According to the authors, in his youth, Martin Luther struggled with his own sexuality.

Luther tried to deny his homosexual attractions to other men.

During the Protestant Reformation, Martin Luther came to believe that if two people are devoted to each other and to God, it does not matter if they enjoy a homosexual relationship.




In the New Scientist, 27 October 2007 (Population is the key), Andrew Ferguson pointed out that:

1. World population is likely to be 10 billion by 2070.

2. Even if we adopt a simpler lifesyle, as for example in Cuba, the planet will not be able to cope.

3. For everyone to enjoy western European lifestyles, the world population needs to be about 2 billion.

To help save the planet, we need to demolish the last great taboo.

We need to stop forcing people to go in for relationships that lead to the production of babies.

Pop star Rihanna has a video in which she is kissing a woman.

"In doing so she joins a long line of famous women who’ve had a lesbian clinch on camera, from Britney Spears and Madonna to Nev Campbell and Denise Richards."

(After Rihanna's girl-on-girl kiss: More female stars' lesbian - Metro)

You may have noticed a few girls kissing.

Professor Germaine Greer, formerly Professor of English Literature and Comparative Studies at the University of Warwick, claims that saying boys are beautiful amounts to 'demolishing one of the last great western taboos.'

Peter Conrad reviewed Greer's book on The Boy in the Observer, 26 October 2003. - (http://books.guardian.co.uk/reviews/l )

According to Conrad, Germaine Greer warns women that "they are ill-equipped to act as 'sex objects' and are 'programmed for failure in their duty of attraction'."

According to Conrad, 'Greer believes that the job of arousing desire is done better, and with an ecumenical appeal to both men and women, by the boys who teasingly lounge and cockily strut through the pages of her book.'

Conrad tells us of Greer's belief that 'If nature didn't intend boys to be seduced by older men and women, why did it make them so damnably fetching, so downy-cheeked, rangy-limbed and pert-buttocked?'

Gay Chinese (http://gay-art/china-homosexual-art/l)

In the 15th century, the wealthier women of Cairo were so concerned by the fashion among their husbands for youths and young men, that they took to dressing up in men's attire.

Homosexuality used to be common throughout the Moslem world. During the early years of Islam, homosexuality was seemingly not regarded as a crime.

In Africa, Asia, the Americas and Europe, before the missionaries arrived, homosexuality was widespread. (Bisexual Africa / Bisexual animals? Bisexual Moslems? Sex with boys? / Mediterranean customs?)

Among the Fon, the predominant people in Dahomey (now Benin), Melville Herskovits in the 1930s reported that, after the age at which boys and girls may play together, "the sex drive finds satisfaction in close friendship between boys in the same group . . .

A boy may take the other 'as a woman,' this being called gaglgo, homosexuality.

Sometimes an affair of this sort persists during the entire life of the pair".

Jessica Biel and Sarah Silverman

Miranda Kennedy, in The Boston Globe, 11 July 2004, wrote that, traditionally, men in Pakistan have sex with boys.

When the Spanish Conquistadors conquered Central America and the Yucatan in Mexico, they found that most native Indian priests were homosexual.

In their temples were sacred statues depicting gay sex acts.

The Romans were pretty gay. Cato the Censor complained about 200 B.C.E. that a handsome slave boy cost as much as a farm.

Britney and Madonna. Is the media trying to change people's views?

So, who is it that has been encouraging us all to have babies? Who is it that is homophobic?

1. It is the fundamentalists and conservatives - whether Christian or Moslem or Hindu or Marxist - who have nisunderstood the wishes of God.

2. It is the big corporations - who want lots of workers and consumers.

3. It is the militarists - who want their nations to have strong armies.

4. It is the brainwashed masses who know little of the animal kingdom.

Salma Hayek and Ashley Judd

According to an article entitled: Bigots are buggers :

"Research by US psychologists suggests that 80% of men who are homophobic have secret homosexual feelings.

"The research results were published in the prestigious Journal of Abnormal Psychology, with the backing of the American Psychological Association.

"In tests conducted by Prof. Henry E Adams of the University of Georgia, homophobic men who said they were exclusively heterosexual were shown gay sex videos. Four out of five became sexually aroused by the homoerotic imagery, as recorded by a penile circumference measuring device - a plethysmograph.

Gustave Courbet

Joan Roughgarden is a professor of biology at Stanford University.

According to Roughgarden, gayness is something you necessarily find in advanced societies.

Jonah Lehrer writing at Seed: The Gay Animal Kingdom:

Roughgarden argues that homosexuality is a defining feature of advanced animal communities, which require communal bonds in order to function.

"The more complex and sophisticated a social system is," she writes, "the more likely it is to have homosexuality intermixed with heterosexuality."

Aangirfan is a cooperative of convent school girls and we strongly recommend celibacy. In underpopulated countries it is OK to increase the size of the population. But the Chinese, Indians and Americans should reassess their attitudes to sexuality.
