Barton: 'Decent People Find [Homosexuality] Absolutely Reprehensible and Disgusting'

On yesterday's program, David Barton asserted that one way to win the fight against gay rights is to start talking about how "reprehensible" homosexuality is going into graphic details on the theory that it will gross people out and educate them about what is really going on.

On today's broadcast, dedicated to discussing the possibility that the Boy Scouts might lift the ban on gay scouts and/or scout leaders, Barton and co-host Rick Green again asserted that as part of this battle, anti-gay activists need to inform people about how "reprehensible and disgusting" homosexuality really is.

Barton sounds a lot like DL's resident anti-uncut trolls, doesn't he? Yes he does.

I'm assuming this ain't the "David Barton Gym" guy, because he's practically a drag queen.

Exactly. The problem is that everyone else does not spend as much time as David Barton thinking about homosexuality. Normal, healthy, morally upright people cannot get the images of the disgusting things men do to each other out of their minds. I mean, we're talking really icky things. If you are not bothered by thinking about gay sex, you clearly are not spending enough time watching gay porn.

It would help if they explained who he is and what program they are talking about.

r1, take your agenda to a thread where it belongs.

David Barton knows as much about gay people as he knows about American history.

Oh honey, PLEASE! I just jacked off in your steam room at Astor Place while you pranced around with the free weights upstairs.

Don't tell ME about how you hate the gays, Miss. BARTON.

No agenda, R5, other than pointing out how annoyingly similar a certain band of trolls in this forum are to this guy.

So eatin' pussy ain't gross?

r5, this IS an appropriate thread to give comments on the topic.

I find thinking of my parents having sex as disgusting.

by Anonymousreply 1104/26/2013

He just wants to dwell, dwell, dwell.

Because we're so DISGUSTING that he can't stop THINKING about gay fucking.

I don't think there's anything gay men and women do to/with each other that straight people don't do. Straight women do anal, straight men go down on women. Among other things.

The bigots are losing and are on the wrong side of history and have gotten desperate. This is the only argument they think they can win, pretty pathetic of them.

by Anonymousreply 1404/26/2013

Exactly, R12. I bet he watches a lot of gay porn so he can specifically catalog just how disgusting the things we do are!

Martha Nussbaum has a good book on all this, linked below. She argues that homophobes have long made use of the supposed general disgust at gay sex, although (except for the rabid ones like Freddie Phelps) they rarely get explicit about it. Rather, the issue just sort of hovers their in the background, the sneering contempt.

Who is this idiot and why should I care what he says?

by Anonymousreply 1704/26/2013

So, did he watch a lot of gay porn to educate himself about the subject??? He must be gay! Only the closeted are that obsessed with it as we've seen numerous times.

by Anonymousreply 1804/26/2013

Does this mean that anti-gay activists get to indulge their prurient interests by becoming gay pornographers? How else are they going to inform people and "educate them about what is really going on." and demonstrate that it's "reprehensible and disgusting?"

So more deep closet cases can get stiffies "on the job," so to speak, as they make "educational videos" for the masses.

Barton's more influential than the usual religious crackpot, R17. Essentially, he's a Dominionist, and promotes a dangerous view of Constitutional history and law...especially the parts that cover separation of (extreme fundamentalist) church and state. Yet, he's not a lawyer or historian. Glenn Beck and and Mike Huckabee are major promoters of Barton's lies and manufactured facts, along with many of those Southern Poverty Law Center designated hate groups. Big with the 'kill the gays' people in Uganda, too.

I love how my rights are denied because some mouth-breathers find gay sex too icky to think about...even though they can't resist taking to the airwaves to discuss it ad nauseam.

Meanwhile my partner of 15 years and I rarely have sex anymore, and maybe never will again, but we love each other, we like our life together and we want the same rights and priveleges as straight people in sexless marriages. It's so ludicrous how the right zeroes in on sex acts and sexual practices when many of the gay couples who've been together longterm are already settled, boring and married or, at the very least, prioritize sex way below many other benefits of marriage, like companionship, devotion and sharing of assets.

I think they have a distorted view of our sexuality and they're, frankly, jealous. It really burns them that we have non-procreative sex without guilt and actually celebrate it.

What we do--or don't do--in the bedroom should have nothing to do with the marriage debate, but of course these loony obsessives can't let it go.

This won't work, anyway. Younger generations do not have the same knee-jerk revulsion that the older ones do. People between 20 and 30 grew up hearing about Presidential blow jobs, and they know all about anal sex, too. Half of them practiced both with the opposite sex while "adhering" to abstinance guidelines in high school. They won't be put off by hearing about bjs and anal, and focusing on the freakier shit like scat and the like wont sway them, either. They'll see it for what it is (a massive exaggeration of a minuscule subset of fetishists who even most gay people are turned off by) and also draw the obvious conclusion that these acts, like oral and anal sex, are practiced by both gay and straight people.

Very few sex acts are inherently "gay". Even penetrating a man anally has become neutral ground, with women "pegging" their boyfriends or husbands with a strap-on and both parties enjoying it. Fisting? Women have fists, too. They also have an additional orifice in which to receive a fist, and many hetero couples enjoy that too. Piss play? BDSM? Nipple clamps, cock rings, genial piercings? Not necessarily gay, either.

They are losing the war and are hysterical about it. They know they have been defeated.

by Anonymousreply 2404/26/2013

The mainstream pornography geared towards straight men pretty much stops this line of argumentation dead in its tracks: when in it's not lesbian stuff, it's anal sex.

If you're beating off to two glassy-eyed incest survivors going at each other with joyless determination and talon-like french manicures or are constantly wheedling your girlfriend to take it in the can on special occasions, you forfeit any right to get on any sort of high horse about what gay men and (to a lesser extent) non-porno lesbians do in bed.

by Anonymousreply 2504/26/2013

I think if you stood at the foot of most people's beds it would be disgusting. I think it's funny that heteros think the sight of them having sex is pretty. How stupid.

Plus there ain't anything that gay people are doing that heteros aren't doing too. Given they make up much more of the population there's always going to be more heteros doing it. These guys are idiots.
