WARNING this chapter contains graphic details of the types of perverted acts homosexuals perform. We include them for your information, so you'll know exactly how depraved they are. We hope you are not too offended.
Uh, thanks?

Do you know what a what a "Golden Shower" is?

Yes.

Have you ever heard of fisting?

Yes.

What really happens in gay baths?

I understand a great deal of gay sex.

What is the hidden political agenda of the "gay" community?

Fuck, stumped me. Metafilter homosexuals, please fill us in.

Sodomy really is a habit, just like smoking. When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I reach for is a big, juicy cock. I don't even think about it anymore, it's such a habit.

1. I remember when things like this were getting friends of mine thrown out of their homes, and it pisses me off yet again to know that this guy was causing all of that pain and didn't even have the ability to question anything that would make sleeping with the sex you're interested in for the first time seem somehow nefarious in its own right. Ugh.

2. "No! Stop!! Help!!" - Evil. This man was evil.

3. How weird when he exposes that most of his brand of homophobia is like the worried whispers of baby brothers hearing about everything for the first time and getting it all wrong but then not having anyone wiser about the way of things to sort them out once and for all.

4. Nearly every proof he gives for why queers are icky is true for "hetrosexuals", too, and often in far greater numbers.

5. I'd love to sit and interview someone of this mindset to try and get into each of their ideas and see where the edges meet up. I keep feeling like if we learned how to understand how to talk to people who have built up this kind of wall of illogic and fear, we could go far in solving many more problems than just this one.

If a hundred people quote this, I'll send everyone in the thread a dollar.

Okay, I won't actually send anyone a dollar. That could be a lot of people. I'll bake you all cookies instead.

Not baking any goddamned cookies, either.

Ah yes, the "The Siren Call Of The Homosexuals" (p. 3).

I prefer the Annie Lennox recording, though of course many of our recruiters play the Judy Garland version while hiding in the bushes near high schools or the Senate Office Building.

It's an incomplete and sordid lifestyle, totally absorbed by illicit sex!

Most of the contacts involve kissing - and that means saliva exchange.
That sounds just terrible.




Where do I sign up?

Two thoughts:

1) Dude, his name was Dick Hafer?

2) Gonna go out on a limb with this one, but I have a feeling Dick Hafer probably sucked on a few cocks in his day. Just guessing.

I ducked into a public bath
To indulge in a little erotic math:
One is a solo, and two is a pair,
Three is a party, and four is a dare;
Any higher number in the lavat'ry
Is just that much more fun for me.
Because what could be better than cottaging
When you're in the mood for frottaging?

But there was a man that we knew of
Who illustrated a review of
And made an ado of
His interest in taboo love.
Wherever we went, there he'd be
With a pencil and paper set on his knee
Through the glory hole in the lavat're
Peering through to see whatever he could see.

He watched us there quite greedily
And his pencil flew quite speedily
And he begged for more quite needily
As he illustrated in the lavat're.
He was a cartoonist he repeatedly asserted
And he would remain long after the john was deserted
And would take down notes with his eyes averted

But we always figured that he was just perverted.

Actually, you know what, with all the talk about a secret homosexual agenda, I think it would be awesome if one actually exists - some policy shift shared among and worked for by millions of homosexuals yet without the awareness of us straights. (Bisexuals get to run errands but don't really know what's up.) I think it would be even more awesome if it's a complete non-sequitur, like the creation of a new national park or increased regulation of the financial markets.

You guys can let me know. I promise to keep the gay secret.

I think this wouldn't only make you sad and/or angry. This is beyond logic, and nothing you can reason with.



From page 9: It's disgusting, you can't tell who's perverted by looking at them.

Barry: Are all the guys in here ... you know?
George Sr.: Oh, no, no. No, not all of them.
Barry: Yeah. It's never the ones you hope.
George Sr.: Hope?
Barry: Think.

Dick Hafer was just jealous because the "History of Sodomite Society" looks like way more fun than he ever had.

It's often said that if the rhetoric can be made to apply smoothly to another group by just inserting their nouns and stats into it (say, heterosexuals, for instance), that the rhetoric itself may be a bit suspect.

Since I know quite a few heterosexuals who are into the same kinds of "deathstyles", even to the extent of having a noun substitute for the baths, I think I shall give this choice bit of rhetoric a miss, except for humor value.

Maybe it's the late hour, but I can't stop laughing at Dick's frequent reaction of yelling AAARGGH into public waste and mail receptacles.

I also love the phrase "Enough already! Let's move on to some OTHER area of sodomy!"

I feel sorry for this twisted little man. He's obviously a self-hating closet case, and he was so transparently titillated by the SHOCKING DETAILS OF ILLICIT SODOMITE SEX that he probably had to take a two-fingered whack at his micropecker after every page. He was so sexually repressed that the very idea of simple oral or anal sex itself, homosexual or not (they put the PENIS in their MOUTH! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!? fap), was extreme and tantalizingly forbidden to him. He probably endured a lifetime of unsatisfying, furtive, dutiful procreation/missionary-only humps with some frigid hag whose equipment he wasn't even compatible with, all the while dreaming of golden showers and hating himself for it.

Interestingly, the "details of sodomite sex" reads almost exactly like a page Fred "God Hates Fags" Phelps, a similar self-hating closet case, has/had on his website, especially the "they consume each other's waste" parts. This might even be the source material. Although Phelps' list consisted of hilariously detailed "statistics" like "fags consume 4,658 pounds of feces per annum".

I think Queen Dick doth protest too much.

And I don't care what HETEROsexuals do in their bedrooms but the thought of it makes me sick. (I don't like the thought of channel surfing and snoring w/ maybe 10 minutes of snogging every month).

"As you might imagine, saliva contains many germs and substances not normally found in the rectum."

Yeah. Because the most important worry in oral-anal contact is what germs will get into the anus.

Christ, what an asshole.

Full of hate, but well-drawn by someone who knew how to cartoon, which is at least refreshing... and even occasionally funny. (The cop being led away by another cop saying "I got hit with a purse," for example. Not a terrible gag.) He had to do a lot of research to get all that stuff in there, so it isn't just a spew of idiotic ignorance. It's a spew of educated ignorance.

It probably won't surprise you to find out that he is also the author of Aids is Looking for You. Unfortunately, I can't find anywhere to buy it (the amazon pages says unavailable) or any product reviews.

I would however, love to see this comic on the seat of everyone in the republican convention. There would finally be a line to the men's restroom.

The cop being led away by another cop saying "I got hit with a purse," for example. Not a terrible gag.

Actually, that was the one part of this goofy little mess that was really offensive, since it was in reference to the Stonewall Riots, the pivotal moment in gay rights history. It's the same as if he'd drawn two Birmingham cops, fresh from turning fire hoses on black civil rights protestors, saying "they chucked spears at me" or something like that. The "sodomite sex" stuff was just laughable since it's so obvious the author is secretly fascinated with it, but the "purse" thing was pretty crass.
posted by DecemberBoy at 1:54 PM on September 4, 2008


Being a sodomite in the Gay Lifestyle sounds BRILLIANT! I'd never heard about it until now. Do you think me and my boyfriend could join in next time there's a boring Tuesday?

lol at the guy in the 'letters' section asking which part of this isn't actually fact.
posted by mippy at 2:28 PM on September 4, 2008


I doubt the significance of Stonewall would have meant a thing to this jerk.
posted by mippy at 3:43 PM on September 4, 2008


The Lovely Ladies of Stonewall chucked their pumps (as well as anything else that wasn't nailed down) on the first nights of the riots, at least. The purse thing wasn't impossible, and speaking as a 'mo, I don't think it's effective as a slur.

OK, I gotta confess that I kind of enjoyed it. Yes, it was bigoted, yes, it was hateful. But it engages in a kind of puerile purience that I'm always going to enjoy, no matter where it lies on the political spectrum.

I also love how it'll make *everybody* shit. Liberals shit because it's such a reactionary thing. Conservatives shit because the stuff described in there in such loving detail really does turn their hair. Hetboys shit because the gay stuff squicks 'em. Gays shit because they feel so slighted. The whole thing rapidly turns into a great big poo party.

And it has an arcane charm as well. A bit like a lawn jockey or a Tijuana Bible.

Comics needs more people like Dick Haver. He's like the right-wing S. Clay Wilson of the 1980's.
