Yale Prof: Gay White Men Are Actually Symbols of Heterosexuality

 

KATHERINE TIMPF

National Review

5/24/19

 

EXCERPT:

 

An assistant professor in women’s gender and sexuality studies at Yale University is claiming that Pete Buttigieg and his husband Chasten are a “vision of heterosexuality without straight people.”

 

The professor, Greta LaFleur, made the comments in a piece analyzing Buttigieg and his husband’s appearance on the recent Time magazine cover.

 

At the beginning of the piece, she concocts an almost incomprehensible buzzword salad about “whiteness” and how “white” the photo is. For example:

 

This photo also tells a profound story about whiteness, above and beyond the fact that almost everything in this photo is, itself, white. It’s such an all-consuming aesthetic, here, that it practically resists interpretation; like the generically familiar (to me, a white person) porch, the cover photo claims that there’s nothing to see, because we already know what it is. We have seen this image, we know this couple, “we” should be comfortable.

 

Then, she immediately transitions into suggesting that the apparent comfortability that the “whiteness” of the photo provides basically makes it a heterosexual photo: “The argument I am making, of course, is that this photo is about a lot of things, but one of its defining features is its heterosexuality,” LaFleur writes. “It’s offering us the promise that our first gay first family might actually be a straight one.”

Someone's got too much time on their hands. Whiteness is a dirty word now? The world's population would still be throwing spears and wearing loin cloths if it wasn't for "Whiteness".

And just like a straight white male, she lusts after women. No irony there whatsoever. :)

What's the fascination with looking like a teenaged boy? I've seen it over and over.....

Yesterday I was listening to the audio book version of Steven Pinker's "The Better Angels of Our Nature." It's about the general decline in violence over the centuries. Pinker cited Henry VIII as an example of a violent king.

 

Imagine my consternation when Pinker referred to Ann Boleyn as the king's first wife. Anyone with the slightest knowledge of Henry VIII's life and reign knows that his first wife was Catherine of Aragon, to whom he was married for eighteen years and whose divorce had great consequences for Britain and the Catholic Church. How could a Harvard professor make such a howling error?

 

Because when you're a politically correct professor of psychology at Harvard, as Pinker is, or a politically correct professor of "women's gender and sexuality studies" at Yale, as Greta LaFleur is, no one disagrees with you even when you've made a basic mistake.

Proof positive that some people are so desperate to justify or explain something that they lose all sense of logic and reason.

Why can't people just leave it be so to speak? If a person is Gay they are Gay, is there really a need to go of the deep end make this kind of crap up?

What's the fascination with looking like a teenaged boy? I've seen it over and over.....

Well... I knew a guy in rehab who was 21 years old at the time. He's a cool dude, and for some reason it strikes me as funny when a gay guy says, "That's gay". But on the teenage look he told me this, because he would do it. He would make himself look as young as possible and then go to parties where older, (and presumably monied) guys would be, looking for young (teenage in appearance) guys. There is a term for it that isn't exactly appropriate, but it begins with F and ends with boy (or boi).

 

I used to work in the restaurant business. One thing I learned was this. Gay guys throw great parties. The guys I knew lived to have them. But they would have two different sets of parties. One was for their gay and straight friends, the other for just their gay friends. I never heard anyone ask why this was. The reason was kind of self explanatory.

 

One of the things I never really got though: The gay men I have known absolutely adore women. There may be no physical attraction, but they respect and trust women.

 

The gay women I have known (including my sister) see men as nothing more than the enemy. Even gay men. Needless to say, they aren't nearly as fun to be around.

Where I live, women who actively seek gay friends are known as "f@g hags". Their conversations are like teenage girls: people-watching, DILFs, shoes. I find most effeminate gay men like either strong women or basket cases.

I once knew a "Pat" - couldn't figure out if she was a she or he, by the name, and either on the phone, or in person. It was only when I called [her] home and spoke to a teenager who mentioned she was his mother.
