Dennis Prager turned in his expense report to Townhall last week and, in an effort to explain away some 1-900 calls, he made up a conversation with a woman who was made Full Metal Mary Cheney by higher education (it's true! it can really happen!):
Perhaps the most important argument against same-sex marriage is that once society honors same-sex sex as it does man-woman sex, there will inevitably be a major increase in same-sex sex. People do sexually (as in other areas) what society allows and especially what it honors.
This would be the "if everyone jumped off a roof while having buttsex, would you do it too?" talk that your mom or dad had with you when you were a kid. You remember...
Anyway, onward to the lesbian:
One excellent example illustrating this is an article recently written in the McGill University newspaper by McGill student Anna Montrose. In it, she wrote:
It's hard to go through four years of a Humanities B.A. reading Foucault and Butler and watching 'The L Word' and keep your rigid heterosexuality intact. I don't know when it happened exactly, but it seems I no longer have the easy certainty of pinning my sexual desire to one gender and never the other.
(Michel Foucault is a major French "postmodern" philosopher; Judith Butler is a prominent "gender theorist" at UC Berkeley; and "The L-Word" is a popular TV drama about glamorous lesbians.)
I interviewed Anna Montrose, a bright and articulate 22-year-old woman, on my syndicated radio show. She is a fine example of the type of thinking and behavior a homosexuality-celebrating culture -- such as that at our universities -- produces.
The following are selected excerpts, edited for reasons of space, from that interview. The full transcript, the audio and her original article are all available on my website, www.dennisprager.com.
DP: Prior to attending university you had your 'rigid heterosexuality' intact. Is that correct?
AM: I think that that's pretty fair to say.
Whoa. What exactly does Dennis (DP) mean by "rigid heterosexuality". Is he flirting? And let's not even get into what "DP" means.
Sorry. Here's more:
DP: You didn't know you were sexually attracted to women until you went to university? You had lived 18 years and thought you were only sexually attracted to males.
AM: That's true, but I also had never had a boyfriend either. I didn't date --
DP: Whether one has a boyfriend or girlfriend is very different from what one wants to have and where one's sexual fantasies lie.
AM: Yeah, that's completely true.
DP: All I'm saying about sexual choices is that society has a deep impact on sexual choices including whether it's same sex or opposite sex. So my whole position is: Thousands of years of Western civilization preferring male-female bonding leading to marriage and family is a good thing, and Anna feels that it's a bad thing. Is that totally fair? Or am I putting words in your mouth?
There he goes again. Looks like Dennis is trying to lure her back from the Dark Side. Then he starts trying to get her to tell him about, you know, 'doing it' with a chick:
DP: Have you acted upon your new revelation of not being a rigid heterosexual?
AM: What do you mean 'acted on'?
DP: Well, had sexual contact with females.
AM: I guess I have, yeah.
DP: Have you had with a male?
AM: I had. I had a boyfriend for a year.
DP: Is there any difference or are they both equally meaningful to you?
AM: Well, there is definitely a difference, but they are also both meaningful.
DP: Well, when you had sexual contact with a girl, were you naked? (sound of a zipper)
AM: Um. Yeah. Sure. We were naked.
DP: Cool. So, like, what did you do, you know, with her? Was she hot? (fumbling noises...creepy wet squicky sound)
AM: Look, I really have to go. I have midterms...
DP: No! Wait wait I'm almost done with the, uh, interview....So what are you wearing? (moaning)
AM: I'm going to hang up now.
DP: I'll bet you're blond and the other girl had like black hair and was totally into it and then the two of you started rubbing your---
AM: Jesus. You sick bastard---(click...dial tone)
DP: Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh gawd! Mommy! Unh unh. Mommeeeeee----(whimpering...sound of a cigarette being lit)
Okay. I made part of that up. But it was higher education that made me do it....
