Random Vacation Thoughts: HOW TO DRESS UP A SCARECROW



by Dick & Poli Tico

We are still on vacation. So a little suspense with the novel. First, a little foreword on sexual conversion before we plunge into an exciting "sexuality-changing" adventure.

The only reason why a gay person must stop being gay is to recover his self-respect. As I came to grips with my sexuality years ago, I quickly heard the most inane intellectual pretensions. Tolerance has become a most abused word: degradation was conveniently forgotten. I immediately sensed I didn't enjoy socializing, much less identifying, with the congenitally outed ones (but I learned later that I didn't like more those who I thought were "real" men but who would turn out taking advantage of me inside a gym sauna). One thing I decided early on, being out gay was not a consideration. It served me right: I was only attracted to straight guys anyway. And if there was a way out, that would be the supreme blessing.

Fortunately, there came a way out.

One of the most inane political postures in the supposedly rational "modern" world is to deny a solution to a problem by intellectually dishonest political maneuvers. I am talking about sexual conversion. How could you lose? What is a lower fate than being gay anyway? Some claimed it being "dangerous", what could be "more dangerous" than growing old gay without a fight? (Not to mention it being pathetic). Any effort to escape being gay is a step in the right direction. The problem with what they call the "modern" world was that it has come under the dictates of mere "say so", and regrettably "say so" has become subject to "narrow, even delusional" politics. One should just rely on one's head. Be honest now, do you think a Muscle Mary would ever be greeted with respect in the streets? And if ever that would come to pass, what would that say about the depths the world has fallen into in pulling down its standards? If it sunk that low with that one, won't that mean it will have lower standards in everything else? Would the indiscriminate tendency to pull down standards for the most intellectually dishonest political pretensions have anything to do with the current decline?

No, it's not sophistication. It's called decline.

Who really wants a Muscle Mary loitering in the neighborhood anyway? The figures we described in the last post and in Chapter 11 on San Francisco and Los Angeles were meant to underscore that beneath the contrived manipulation of the media (which have low penetration nowadays anyway) that everything is hunky-dory for gays, it appeared people were running away from them instead. As we've shown, cities were retarded, even degraded (San Francisco is the prime example) , proof of the inherent but dangerously "ignored" insidious toxicity left embedded in the social fabric. People today are more educated, more polite, but they are letting their feet express what they really felt. It was so obvious in San Francisco and West Hollywood. Reality check right there.

Do you think it's only in the West Coast? Guess again. Make that everywhere. Try Florida. Gays flocked to the Fort Lauderdale-Miami area in the recent past that they now compose 140 for every 1000 residents in the so-called "Gay Village" of the area. Are normal people flocking to live with them? Sorry, wishful thinkers. Same refrain, people seemed to see scarecrows.

Population Growth in Wilton Manors (Gay Village), Florida

1990 - 12,236

2000 - 12,697

2010 - 11,632 (nearly 10% decline)

*I'm only quoting snippets of data here, there will be more extensive discussions in the novel, which is about decline, the serial killing of civilizations, one of the constant prime indicators of which is gay resurgence just before the downfall of each of the previous civilizations



Do you think scarecrows were only found in the US? It's even more surprising in the UK because most gays themselves were recovering their senses and were the ones doing the running away. In 2005, after a study by the HM Treasury and the Department of Trade and Industry to help the British Government analyze the financial implications of their Civil Partnerships Act, they concluded that around 6% were gay. But in 2010, their new census revealed only 1% were left willing to admit they were gay or lesbian (0.5% were bisexual). Where did the rest go? My British friend Ewan joked, "Oh, they changed their minds when they saw all the Muscle Mary's and Bear Daddy's welcoming them into their new lives! They ran scared to the nearest exit!" (I wrote before an article about the futility of hard-selling wishful thinking here).

People are challenged "We are gay, deal with it", so they deal with it by running away. Something scared them? Needless to say that despite, or because of, the corny prevalent gay propaganda, people are more "scared" now in London or in Florida than in 2005.

It's becoming clear that the so-called activists who are primping before the media are obviously disconnected from the individuals that they claim to represent. When I was still active with same-sex sex, I knew nobody among my friends who wasted time with these people, and to think everybody professed liberal (but not blind) politics. Frankly, I don't know where these gay activists came from and suddenly they were into everything and seemed to be dictating (social engineering sexuality ACCORDING TO THEIR DELUSION). From the kind of guy you have to be horny with (just to push their agenda du jour of gay marriage) up to the simplest condom in your all-male porn (I myself only watched "gay for pay" bareback porn before). As if they alone only have the concern and the brains. Suddenly, being into same-sex sex has become regimented, like so many things now when suddenly sprouted all these do-gooders who posture they were concerned about you so they should police your code of conduct. Did it even surprise anybody, especially these pretentious people, that instead of improving, everything seemed to be in decline instead nowadays? (Surprisingly, something which you can not say during the times when the religious ones had the PC monopoly).

I say they should just butt off. Overacting activism often worsens the problem (a Japanese friend once asked if I noticed there were more female Presidents in areas where there were no active feminist movements? True, but I'll tackle this in the novel itself). One more thing, the backlash has started in America. Have you noticed all the rock stars that let themselves be used politically have been practically snubbed lately? The supposedly "hicky" country stars are lording it over in the money charts over the "cheap" ones who relied on the vomit factor for their publicity. Taylor Swift, the top moneymaker for 2011, did not release an album last year but she surpassed in earnings by nearly $10 million dollars the lady who released an album but cheapened unfortunately instead by her stunts to associate her image with Muscle Mary's (Refer to BILLBOARD Magazine List of Top Moneymakers for 2011 in the US for the complete list).

I don't think the present political pretensions are tenable anyway, history is littered with thwarted delusions and the present ones will surely be overtaken by events (like it has always been, as I discussed in previous articles), so it would be wiser to make sexuality conversion a personal decision from the start. Make your own research and test the so-called experts (ignore outright the political ones) instead of swallowing everything. One has to be objective though: Sexual conversion is on a case-to-case basis. So what will be portrayed in the novel are VIGNETTES of the management of particular personalities with particular motivations and objectives. For the actual therapies, consultation with professionals is still advised.

In sexual conversion, the hard part is how to increase the sensitivity of the converted to the opposite sex. We'll go beyond that. We'll show how they could actually fall in love. Suffice to say at this point, there are only theories in the pathogenesis of a sexual deviance. It means, it's dishonest to declare outright no mode of therapy is adequate when nobody understood the thing fully in the first place. Like so many things nowadays, political intramurals have muddled the issue, and more often than not, it has become a greater problem than the original problem itself. Who would want to be gay anyway if there was a way out? Who would want to be the 1% abnormal and make everybody guilty for being in the heteronormative 99%, comically content in nurturing the delusion you could be just like everybody else when you yourself is fighting your nausea dealing with the other hapless 1%? While Human Rights is a ready claim to bolster pretension, that pretension is only "credible" if you're respecting everybody else. In the end, everybody has a human right to live a life free from vomiting. It's not fair, much less "modern", to pretend that they should swallow their vomit for anyone- including you.
