(A brief History of Homo, Part 2) In hypermasculine ‘egalitarian’ homosexuality, the basis of the New Gay Man cult, the individual’s Erotic Target, is himself, in the form of a masculine man. This results from the peculiar social conditions he operates in.
The New Gay Man is an individual with Sexual Inversion, that is to say, he is male, but has female or passive sexuality.
(In sexuality) activity is put into operation by the instinct for mastery through the agency of the somatic musculature (the body); the organ which, more than any other, represents the passive sexual aim is the erotogenic mucous membrane of the anus.
Feature pic: apparently Sir Ian thinks ‘gay men’ are more masculine than straight men. Well, women are better judges of this than men…but really I think it’s because we don’t have to try as hard as gays.
In other words, penetration implies a hierarchy, mastery in the male or active and passivity in the partner, and also a binary — the desire to dominate and penetrate and the desire to submit and receive.
A male who desires to attract others who can satisfy his sexual Inversion, that is, his need to be penetrated, should appear to be feminine: he should have feminine gender, because gender is how we advertise sexuality to others. Dr J Michael Bailey put it like this:
both the members of an egalitarian homosexual relationship are (homosexual). Both (are males who) want masculine men…Even if one of the partners would…enjoy taking the feminine role – taking a female name, wearing a dress, (becoming) a woman, he would refrain in order to make his partner (who seeks masculinity) happy. If a (homosexual male) wants to attract (heterosexual) men, he should (transition into) a woman. If he wants to attract (homosexual) men, he must stay a man.
To put that another way, the New Gay Man is obliged to perform in a manner completely at odds with his nature, because of the society he lives in. He has female sexuality and should present as feminine; but instead he is obliged to perform masculinity.
The gay ghetto of LGB
The New Gay Man is attracted to powerful masculine men, but, partly because he has retreated to within the cultural ghetto of ‘LBG’ he no longer has access to them, as he would, say, in Asia or Latin America, or would have had even in the West until about 1970.
This dramatic change occurred because of a ‘gay’ activist movement which held that both partners in a relationship between two males (or females) were equally homosexual. This is ‘egalitarian homosexuality.’ It is unique to the West and simply does not happen, at least to any statistically relevant manner, elsewhere. But this cultural shift meant that masculine partners were no longer available to homosexual men, because they refused to accept the cultural stigma of being homosexual, which very few actually were anyway.
The male Sexual Invert’s Erotic Target is always a masculine man, to whom he wishes to submit sexually. He is in fact a woman pretending to be a man, but who inhabits a male body. Deprived of access to such men, he begins to locate his Erotic Target on himself, in a reflexive masturbatory cycle. This will cause him, over, time to perform an exaggerated and theatrical pseudo-masculinity, in order to make his appearance match the qualities of his Erotic Target — in this case, a hyper-masculine male.
Erotic Target Location Error
This is an Erotic Target Location Error. This condition is sometimes called ‘Autoandrophilia’ and we can compare it usefully to Autogynephilia, which also depends on an ETLE. However, it is more difficult to understand than Autogynephilia, where the subject’s sex and sexuality are conformed, because in this case the subject has Sexual Inversion and thus is a male with female sexuality. He might look male, but actually he is a woman.
His desire is to be sexually receptive and he constructs an internal narrative within which sexually submissive men remain masculine.
His ideal sexual partner, to recap, is an extremely masculine, heterosexual man. He creates, in his mind, this ideal sexual target, which is exactly the same as any other male Sexual Invert’s, but then identifies with it. Just like the Autogynephile, he wants to become that which he desires — in this case, a masculine man.
Trad vs modern
Compare this to the traditional situation in the West or that which obtains practically everywhere outside it, even today. Here, Sexually Inverted, ie homosexual men are seen by both themselves and the society around them as not being men. They are defined by their natural lack of masculinity and are happy with that. When and if they can, they seek sexual encounters with masculine men, often in secret. But even though this does still occur in the West, the New Gay Man is at pains to deny it, because he has been culturally conditioned to see himself as precisely what he’s not — masculine.
The ETLE may occur, therefore, because of social intolerance of his natural femininity. However it may also occur because of a mistaken mapping of sexual desire in his early masturbation sessions, in which he will inevitably be fantasising about big hairy men delving him. Unlike our Asian, who actually could find such a man or at least a close approximation, this avenue is denied the New Gay Man — paradoxically because of the ‘gay liberation’ of the 1970s.
This actually was a straitjacket, a corral that separated ‘all things gay’ from ‘all things straight’ — itself exemplary of the inability of USicans to conduct nuanced thinking. No longer were homosexuals able to liaise with straight men, because of those men’s fear of being called ‘homosexual’ themselves.
However, while it may satisfy those masturbatory desires, just as happens with the Autogynephile, the ETLE leads to problems in relations with partners. This is again because the Invert himself has female sexuality and desires to be receptive in sex. He is more or less repulsed by penetrating and by femininity in his partners, but ‘egalitarian’ homosexuality demands that he must both penetrate them and by doing so turn them into women.
This is the true source of Bailey’s quote ‘a hundred bottoms looking for a top.’
Penetration is the big problem. The culture our man is part of considers itself ‘egalitarian’, a concept, in sexual relations, that until recently did not exist. Prior to this, and everywhere outside this cult now, all sexual relations implied a power hierarchy of some kind.
Physical sex requires a hierarchy, which is in direct conflict with the man’s Autoandrophilic character, itself trying to be the most butch and masculine in town. His host persona desperately wants to be penetrated, but the invented one — a masculine man — absolutely rejects it. This is cognitive dissonance on the seismic scale.
No emotional commitment
This man will penetrate just as he masturbates, frequently and without emotional commitment, because he could only give such commitment to a man much more masculine than he is. At the same time, he is driven to hyper-masculinise himself and rapidly finds that this is a vicious cycle: all the men he knows are role-playing women themselves, all striving to be more shrill in their performed masculinity than the next.
As a result, he is constantly seeking the mythical character who can at once be genuinely masculine and at the same time accept his own performance of masculinity. But this is a fool’s errand, for no such man exists.
