CHEAPNESS



by Dick of All Dicks & Poli Tico


Alternative Title: SCRAPING THE BARREL FOR A VANISHING SPECIAL CIVIL RIGHT

This is almost a manifesto, if you have to read anything in this blog, start with this one


In the end, the crux of the matter is not homosexuality. It's cheapness. Will you be contented drinking diluted wine when you craved for vintage all along? Men who are into men are expected to be more discriminating because they will be the ones who will do the actual consumption, not the demagogues & grand-standers who only seek self-serving sustainance on the issue. If they wanted only genuine leather for a mere belt, why should they not respond only to a genuine man? What if they actually puke just imagining sex with a mere gay man, how could they even think of marrying one? Should they be subjected to political blackmails just because they are not stupid enough to lower their taste & swallow their own vomit for somebody else's delusion? Wishing that the next generation will settle for a weaker taste is not only foolhardy but very arrogant. I grew up with elder gay generations wishing my generation will be the one with the poor taste but unfortunately, I, nor my friends, simply don't have the stomach for their delusions. It's unfair to expect, much less wish, the young to wallow in bad taste. Have you noticed that while everybody is wishfully dreaming everybody else to lower their taste, the Western standard of living is at the same time declining? If they get any lower, everybody will be at the bottom.

The lower the taste, the poorer the people? In various ways. I totally changed my mind on gay activism when I started writing this blog because I was exposed (I never expected it) to the extent of the hypocrisy of people in pretending they know better what to do with your sexual life in the guise of compassion, for them, their way. Compassion has become a double-edged sword, a poison, now it could be blackmail, an oppression tool. I never had problems with my sexuality, my bedroom is my own business anyway. But some had the caprice to flaunt it & the world better accept it their way or they will have major tantrums. The world must change for them, even if that means destroying the standards that made it excel & beautiful, the world should degrade itself for them, a mere 1% of the population. Now, you have to get horny with them too, they should be beautiful too, because by virtue of their logic, they have been opppressed by fate, it's only just that everybody shares the oppression, equality of misery for everyone. 99% of the people must readapt their lives & tastes because reality is not what it is, reality is what the 1% say, so nobody has a right to puke because the world should lower its taste & standard even more... more & more... even as basic a physiological reaction like puking is forbidden now, natural laws should be tailor-adapted for the gays' contentment. Do I have to be cursed for saying I am not attracted to a gay man? Is it even hard to see why? Since when anybody had the right to even abuse somebody for his sexual taste, isn't that what they're fighting for? They want everybody to function their way, for their sake. Classic oppression now by the oppressed, & who do you think would be too stupid to stoop to that kind of cheap game? To think I didn't even seek sexual conversion, I just accompanied my friend Juan, joined the therapy by chance & I got sexually converted, & they would rather toy with the world with their newfound "powers" than seek real change. Well, their "powers" have not made my urge to vomit with their antics disappear. Their "powers" can never make them the standards of beauty even if they organise to eternity. The fact is they will only be happy if they are no longer gay. And if they proved malignant & incurable, they should learn to be mature & not degrade the world to their unfortunate fate. Equality doesn't mean a degraded world.

Does anybody even believe claiming William Shakespeare or Clint Eastwood is gay will ever redeem gays? In the end, Shakespeare & Eastwood, both not self-identifying as homosexual, will become laughing-stocks instead. All this wishful thinking will not validate gays in the end but it will only cheapen everyone & everything, past or present. Pure gold is simply too valuable, too attractive. No use pandering to outdated delusions, it's obvious by now there is/will be no equality- there are cheap people who could stuff anything into their iron-clad stomachs & there are those with refined ones. Sorry, folks, I don't have a strong stomach & I won't swallow anyone's delusion if it makes me puke!

Needless to say, I don't take gay politics seriously. With the current bleak world situation, the limits of democracy are becoming clearer & clearer except to those prone to wishful thinking. Everything in democracy, even democracy itself, is reversible. It appears the current political system isn't the end-stage form, it is still evolving, it will continue to evolve & humans haven't exactly escaped from a world ominously described by George Orwell & Aldous Huxley. I'm afraid, instead of expanding, there will be a retreat in the entitlement dramas in no time. Endless carping about rights finally caught up with reality, I can see in the short term that the eternal battle between duty & rights will tip towards the former as the latter will eventually be the ultimate casualty of the current troubles. Democracies can't forever subsist on debt & saliva just to pander to abstract demagoguery, it would rather just self-destruct. That's why civilizations have come & gone. That's the proverbial brickwall facing political delusions, including the gay one, and the latter has gotten used to facing brickwalls throughout history anyway since the time of Sodom, Greece, Rome, etc. After my successful sexual conversion, the more I saw gay politics as nothing but exercises in delusion. If any of these activists were so concerned about the welfare of gays, they should have been running sexual conversion camps to help those who could still be saved instead of forcing the issue to the gagging throats of everybody else. At least, just doing the motions of ferreting out & saving the benigns if they couldn't find the honesty to do the real thing. Treating everybody as malignants expecting them to have the same options & expectations like the end-stage cases is not only a great injustice, it's cruel stupidity. But no, they just wanted to use them for their own political ends. They wanted to grand-stand because they couldn't face their own mediocre lives so they scrape barrels for conjured special civil rights just so they could amplify their narrow theories (their only hold to presumed greatness) & in the process feed their puny self-importance. At the expense of the simple-minded gay who will grasp at any imagined salvation unaware he had other options aside from being gay, that he didn't have to swallow his vomit & that he should not be reduced instead into a mere poster child for another political sound bite which would soon be muffled anyway by an inevitable wall of revulsion. Luckless existence, especially now when big money has realized there's really only a miniscule gay market to speak of, it turned out the far bigger part didn't march to the same music as the tiny noisy pariah bunch all along. Unfortunately, current events are certainly knocking some sense into delusional aspirations. It's never wise to exert a strong effort even if you're merely shouting "I want my phantom special Civil Rights" while you're standing over a quicksand. I'm sure, the quicksand will also assert its right & quite rightly you'll be swallowed up.

Cheap tactics, cheap tastes?

One wrote the Malignant B-lister gays should be supported in order to fight the Creationists. Why should you even choose between the two? Why should fringes dictate your options? The delusional 1% of gay politics is as much a fringe as the Ultra-Rightist. Why not just ignore all the fringes (though Greg prefers even an Ultra-Right thug if he's cute, he'll even buy him a condo; I actually had a fetish for religious straight guys before when I was still active so B-lister gays will be the last option in every way)? There is a pervasive presumption among the pretentious that a penchant for weepy melodramas is enough credential to be a liberal, avant-garde or intellectual. I had my fill of brushes with that liberal stereotype who escaped from a farm who, upon reaching the city, try to posture as "gay-friendly" even to the most gawdy Muscle Mary thinking that that is her ticket to "being in" despite her bad makeup & low IQ. No, that's just the proof she's got a strong stomach, that she came from a farm & she is as clueless as her cheap eyeliner. Revulsion or compassion? What is the best way to seek compasssion from someone trying to control his puke? Pray he's a sucker & remind him it's being liberal & intellectual to swallow his puke? Chasing a Theory, a phantom special civil right dream, when all you wanted was to puke is the perfect metaphor for what infected the formerly progressive Western civilization. I don't think that's being a liberal democrat, that's called scraping-the-barrel cheap.

Sadly, in the end, it's much ado about nothing. You can't bargain on the purity of the wine. Despite the wishful dreaming & the dishonest grand-standing, a weak diluted wine simply won't do & things will eventually fall into their proper places like in a perfect blocking of a perpetual plot line. History has always made sure that's inevitable & the current historical narrative in the currently reeling West can't be mistaken, the usual redemptive mechanisms are finally kicking in. A dying bull will still make a final effort to kick just to bluster it is alive & strong but it is fatally doomed. Like it has always been. Like Sodom. Like Greece. Like Rome...

Frankly, it's time to ignore the noise of the malignant B-lister gays. The world has been a better place. I never had problems with my sexuality because I never made myself a nuisance. Everybody should be honest with his self-worth & not pretend he's rated 10 when he's a mere 0.0000000000001.


NOTE
The Democrats shouldn't rely too much from scraping the barrel for support, they may just scrape shit. If they want to be taken seriously, they shouldn't condone the B-lister gay activists in contaminating the conversation with their tasteless propaganda: no, it's not being modern, it's being cheap. Revulsion will always win over forced compassion in the end. It's not wise presuming all Democrats have strong stomachs, they might just puke & pass out due to dehydration before they could even vote. They voted before because of a bad economy, now the economy is still bad & let's see if they like now the idea to be protected suddenly by a gay soldier at a time when there may be a strong enemy, they didn't vote for that. That's the danger of pandering to the fringes, for scraping the barrel, the desperate last resort of a hanging-by-the-tips-of-his-fingers liberal democrat. The Republicans certainly couldn't stomach them either. Let them form their own party- may I suggest they name it The Cheapest Loser Party. Cheapness can only be sophisticated to losers.

My British friend Pete referred me to a news account on Obama making gay rights as criterion for allocation of US aid. Lol, the top recipients include Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq & Egypt. Who is he kidding anyway? How much could the US afford nowadays, btw? To think China invested $10 billion in Obama's ancestral home Kenya & it's keeping its mouth shut humbly. China spent in Kenya alone what the US almost spent in the top ten recipients of its aid & Obama has the gall to gloat as if his kind of money still shocks & awes! It is these kinds of cheap bluster that could destroy US image in no time. For what? To pander for a paltry electoral contribution from some Muscle Mary's from California? It's good it was mentioned in the same article that Mitt Romney won't make the same stupid linking of aid funds, at least not all Americans would appear cheap. My Singaporean friend already laughed his head off when the French Foreign Minister threatened to withhold funds that it doesn't have to any country that doesn't respect human rights, now comes Obama blustering cheaply like a growling cat. Just gets more hilarious. Better call a pirouetting Muscle Mary for maximum punchline.

Obama is caught scraping the barrel there first hand. Fits our title.
