“…some of the most highly intelligent people… were all homosexuals”. Richard Nixon
Why is that gay men are so extraordinarily clever and talented? In the fields of science, art, literature, music…everything, really…their contribution of great work is massive — disproportionately so. I mean…here’s a very quick top of my head list of gay male movers and shakers:
Nikola Tesla, Alan Turing, Leonardo Da Vinci, Michaelangelo, Salvador Dali, William Shakespeare, Alexander the Great, Richard the Lionheart, Aristotle, Socrates, Freddy Mercury, W.B Yeats, Oscar Wilde, Marlon Brando, Tchaikovsky, Mozart….I could go on and on and on, but you get my point.
Why is this? Why does humanity owe so much to so few?
If you ask me, it’s that gay gene that we’re so lucky to be blessed with. It makes us faster, stronger, brighter than the old heterosexual model of maleness.
It’s the same gay gene that helped lift humanity from an obscure bunch of marginal hunter gatherers to the planet’s apex predator (maybe good, maybe not, but it is what it is).
It’s the same gay gene that Pagan societies had no issue with — even hyper-masculinised Vikings considered it perfectly normal to be gay — indeed, Pagan societies recognised the extra gifts that gay men have; gay men were the Druids, Shamans, teachers, keepers of historical record and story-tellers.
The pivotal role of gay men in Pagan societies was, in fact, recognised by the death cult Abrahamic religions…in their efforts to replace and repress Paganism they targeted paganism’s thinkers an doers and priestly class— demonising and defaming gay men (and gay sexuality)….and we all know how many centuries of murder and bigotry and shame and prejudice that led to…
So, yeh, we gay men are talented, we are special. So, give yourself a pat on the the back, sister! Oddly, even Richard Nixon agrees with me as he once said…
“If you look over the history of societies, you will find that some of the most highly intelligent people… were all homosexuals”
