In a 1981 issue of PSYCHOLOGY TODAY I read a cover article titled THE VALUE OF THE HOMOSEXUAL EXPERIENCE.

Over several pages the author stated homosexual men do one of two things. They either accept the world’s condemnation that they are the “Abomination of Desolation” and don’t deserve to live self destructing with alcohol, drugs and sex (the vast majority) or they center themselves and learn to think for themselves.

Now centring ourselves and learning to think for our selves is something all of us must do homosexual or heterosexual. It is just more vital (and difficult) for homosexual men to do it.

The sobering thing is that only 2% of the world’s population (gay and straight) actually learns to think for itself.

Johann Fichte, father of the Austrian school system (the one all nations used as a model) designed to create people who obey and follow orders stated that it is impossible to erase the disobedience gene in people who have learned to think for them self.

The important thing to realize is that rebellion, traditionally viewed as a sin, is actually a sign of two things: having intelligence and having a spine.

Jean Cocteau stated, “Whatever the world condemns you for make it your own. It is yourself.”

There is wonderful strength in those words.

Gary Trudeau in these panels from DOONESBURY wonderfully captures the process men go through when we realize we march to the beat not of a different drummer but of our drummer.

A tip of the hat to him.–Reg Hartt 2019–12-05.
