Why Hollywood really nixed "Behind the Candelabra"

Why would supporters of "gay rights" and "same sex marriage" consider this movie, starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, "too gay"?

Michael Voris suggests that it's because Hollywood intuitively realizes that while many Americans are comfortable with the language of "gay rights" and "marriage equality," some 97% of Americans would be repelled by actual scenes of "gay" sex.

And here's some supporting material for anyone brazen enough to have a look: "What homosexuals do" (Musings, June 26, 2006). NB: Advisory: explicit content from the Family Research Institute's Medical Consequences of What Homosexuals Do (1992).

Michael Voris is not anywhere near devious enough in his thinking to understand what is going on here. Allow me to offer my services.

By selling this movie as exotic forbidden fruit, homosexual cultural saboteurs ensure (1) that the movie will become a cultural event, draw a big crowd, and make lots of money, and (2) that exotic orifice poking ("out of the closet!", "the last taboo!" etc) will become a conversational topic of endless fascination on female pteradactyl talk shows, Springer-style true confessions of knuckledragging subhumans shows, glossy supermarket "10 Ways to Be a Slut for Your Man" magazines, etc, etc.

Oddly, it seems that the homosexual cultural saboteurs have more luck with women than men. Liberace, Paul Lynde, all those cute pixie boys on tv over the years -- women love them, and pressure the men in their lives to accept them.

So you are "devious enough"? Ha-ha! I love your comments! And funny too.

Dark Horse, I apologize for the post. I'm shocked at how coarse the culture has become.

I decided to delete my comment but this indicates the success of the Madison Avenue style of marketing by gay...

Here's one review of "After the Ball" at Amazon...

"In 1987 Kirk partnered with Hunter Madsen (who used the pen name "Erastes Pill") to write an essay, The Overhauling of Straight America, which was published in Guide Magazine. They argued that gays must portray themselves in a positive way to straight America, and that the main aim of making homosexuality acceptable could be achieved by getting Americans "to think that it is just another thing, with a shrug of their shoulders". Then "your battle for legal and social rights is virtually won"

This book was a real eye-opener for me. I found it reminiscent of Saul Alinsky's 'Rules for Radicals'.

From the book flap: "Dismissing the movement's outworn techniques in favor of carefully calculated public relations propaganda, AFTER THE BALL unveils the key psychological principles and national strategies that gays must follow..." "At the same time, Kirk and Madsen propose a clear-eyed agenda to reform gay culture..."

To sum up the book: Two Harvard-educated intellectuals, one of which worked in Advertising on Madison Avenue, devised an agenda, to use propaganda and turn the tide of America's disregard and ambivalence for homosexuality by 180 degrees.

Lynne,

You shouldn't have deleted your comment. It was not the least bit inappropriate.

I took Dark Horse's remark as expressing amazement rather than any sort of offense. But maybe you'd have to know some of his combox history to know that.

Anyway, THIS comment is certainly one you shouldn't delete! Thanks for posting!

Donna, that was NOT a topic I wanted to discuss with my daughter but that's what happens when a culture descends into the mud. I'm thankful she felt comfortable enough to talk to me about it.

To remain ignorant of these issues enables the purveyors of filth to continue to peddle it.
