So far this morning, I’ve been running around in the house. Now, I have to leave to run around outside of the house. I hope to blog at around mid-day, but until then, three articles to give you food for thought and then an invitation to use this Open Thread for whatever you find interesting.
On the subject of gay identity, a woman is listed as a “father” on a birth certificate, even though, in our Brave New World, that’s still biologically impossible, and a gay man exposes the scientific fraud behind “gay biology,” since the thinking is that straights can become gay, but gays cannot become straights. I believe absolutely that there are people who are effeminate but straight, macho but gay, butch but straight, and feminine but lesbian. Some people are more hard wired than others. Many live in a fluid realm. And some people elevate certain values above their sexual orientation and identity. It’s therefore ridiculous — and wrong — to claim that the journey between gay and straight is a one way street, that only lands in gay territory.
Also, would it surprise you that John Kerry’s State Department and Obama’s White House engaged in a concerted, deliberate, long-term plan to scapegoat Israel for the failure of John Kerry’s peace talks? Not surprised? I wasn’t either. A nice companion piece is Norman Podhoretz’s refusal to feel pity for the Palestinians, a wonderful essay that rips aside the “Emperor’s New Clothes” mentality that has everyone, Jews included, paying lip service to the Palestinians’ plight.
And now I must run. (Apologies for typos. I’m really rushed now, so no effort at proofreading.)
