the politics of self-disgust

An interesting comment to an interesting post at Vanishing American.

The commenter mentions that Gertrude Stein was quoted as saying, about 75 years ago, by Ernest Hemingway in A Moveable Feast: "The main thing is that the act male homosexuals commit is ugly and repugnant and afterwards they are disgusted with themselves. They drink and take drugs, to palliate this, but they are disgusted with the act and they are always changing partners and cannot be really happy.”

I think this self-disgust explains much of the anger and defensiveness of the militant gay lobby. They demand acceptance from others for the simple reason that they cannot accept  themselves.

It also explains why, no matter how much tolerance and acceptance they gain, they remain  miserable and self-loathing. Their lifestyle will always be unhealthy.

And it also helps to explain the shrillness with which politically correct heterosexuals support the LGBT lobby. Most of us, if we were honest, would have to admit to being disgusted by the thought of sodomy. If you're fanatically politically correct the only way to deal with this is to over-compensate, to become pro-homosexual to an extreme degree.
