Truths you will never see in the US press

Diversity destroys communities. Every academic study shows that diversity lowers mutual trust and civic engagement.

Feminism has made women significantly less happy and less likely to find men willing to marry them.

Islam teaches contempt for non-Muslims and is the direct cause of almost all terrorism in the world. More specifically, Saudi/Wahhabi/Sunni Islam is the cause of almost all terrorism.

Saudi Arabia funds terrorist-training Madrassas around the world, but all Western governments are too corrupted by petrodollar baksheesh to ever say anything about it.

Identical twin studies show that homosexuality is learned behavior, not genetic. I didn't say people don't have the right to be gay, only that it is a choice. Gays were not, for the most part, "born that way".

Most racism in America is blacks deliberately targeting whites for violence, not the other way around. Blacks commit violent crime at about 20 times the rates that whites do, and this is independent of income level. To be fair, Asians commit violent crime at less than half the rate that whites do.

White people on average are the least racist group on earth, by various measures, such as willingness to have neighbors of a different race, or to allow minority immigration.

Asians show that being a minority is not a significant impediment to success in America, contradicting the narrative about blacks and Hispanics which we are supposed to believe.

Smallpox and other diseases killed around 90% of the Indians soon after the Spanish first arrived. The US never distributed smallpox blankets. That story is fraudulent.

Anything else that you will never ever see in the NY Times?

I don't want to offend, but it is important to put truth above feelz.

That being said, we can't allow drugs to cross our borders. The drug war should be focused on preventing importation of drugs.

The war on drugs HAS been focused on preventing importation of drugs for 50 years while spending untold billions of dollars. With almost zero success. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.

If prisons were empty and addicts had nothing to get high with I would believe you. The fact that the streets are flush with foreign drugs is evidence that there has been no true focus on preventing importation. The border is a sieve.

War on drugs was a Republican coup to politically neutralize blacks and hippies who made tremendous political gains in the 1960's.

The war on drugs has succeeded 100% as planned. Only the plan was never to stop drug use, but rather to curtail civil liberty and destroy power of opposition.

And by fighting for the electorate I mean he is proposing legislation that would effect DIRECT BENEFITS to tax payers and not "trickle down" mock benefits which actually are reallocations of our taxes to the businesses who have the power to reward representatives careers by rewarding their desired behaviors as expressed by their lobbyists.

Yes, but it's relative to what's around you. 2000 years ago in Britain, tribal loyalty didn't even extend to the whole of the British Isle. Now it includes all Europeans. What constitutes foreign is highly dependent on who the competing tribes are. If extra-terrestrials started a colony on Earth, I bet race would start seeming insignificant compared to the illegal aliens.

Tribal trust ultimately comes from people of "like" genes banding together to compete with people of "more different" genes. What constitutes "like" depends on what competition you see.

Patrick says

Genetic and learned are not the only two options. Environment is a third. Scientific studies have shown that testosterone in the womb relates to increase change of homosexuality. This is biological, but not genetic. Development of the brain is another thing that varies even in identical twins. I think you are overlooking these two things.

Also, if being gay is a chose, then you should be able to choose to be gay. Go ahead and try it. I bet you'll fail. I don't mean just suck some dude's cock. I mean choose to enjoy sucking a dude's cock. I don't think that's possible. I can't even choose to enjoy kelp.

Is there any evidence that heterosexual people can choose to be homosexual?

I mean, seriously, does any straight guy here think he could will himself to be gay? Until that happens, I don't buy being gay being a choice, not that it matters anyway. Rights should not be based on that.

this report by New Scientist rubbishes his argument:

A genetic analysis of 409 pairs of gay brothers, including sets of twins, has provided the strongest evidence yet that gay people are born gay. The study clearly links sexual orientation in men with two regions of the human genome that have been implicated before, one on the X chromosome and one on chromosome 8 …
‘It erodes the notion that sexual orientation is a choice,’ says study leader Alan Sanders of the NorthShore Research Institute in Evanston, Illinois.

Development of the brain is another thing that varies even in identical twins. I think you are overlooking these two things.

I think he's trying to generate page views and comments by posting provocative assertions, even if they are obviously wrong. Read what he calls "The Joy of Triggering." He might have such a limited understanding of human nature as to believe what he wrote, but more likely he has a better understanding of business and what will drive people to spend more time posting more comments on his website.

Having said that, I suppose one could distinguish between situational homosexuality and innate homosexuality. Sparta and other ancient cultures showed broad potential for homosexual behavior, and FortWhine insists that any child who sees a gay couple will immediately turn gay. (That's his story and he's sticking to it, as it's the only way he can justify devoting so much time to the Reseda truck stop toilets.) Both history and present reality show examples of people who are innately gay, e.g. Emperor Hadrian, Peter Thiel, Tim Cook, etc. These three famous examples show that some men, even if they could have almost anyone, want male and not female. The percentages can be debated, and pre-natal hormones are the best proved factor.

IIRC, Patrick is married to a woman who teaches public school. If he wanted to know more from a source he trusts, he could ask her. Kids are coming out around the age of puberty. They have no memory of being anything other than gay. "60 Minutes" ran a fascinating report on gay and straight kids, including observable behavioral differences long before puberty. Gay people exist, and know it, so Patrick only hurts his own credibility with assertions that people know to be false.

I do not think that is the case. I do not think Patrick is being disingenuous. I think he believes what he wrote.

However, he is incorrect in assuming that if a trait isn't triggered by genetics, then it is cultural or personal choice. Biology includes the genome, the epi-genome, and environmental factors that cause genes to turn on and off often at different times and for different durations, and environmental factors that cause the brain to lay down different connections regardless of genes.

Think about it. There simply isn't enough data in your genome to fully specify the brain you were born with. There literally aren't enough bits in DNA to represent the brain of a newborn. Such a brain has orders of magnitude more information. Therefore, the brain isn't encoded in DNA. Rather, how to build a brain is encoded into DNA. How this is done is unknown, but what is known is that a thousand identical twins would produce a thousand different brains. Yes, the brains would be very similar, more so than babies with different DNA, but no two babies with the same DNA would have the same brain. The brain is clearly affected by more than just the DNA. It mathematically has to be. You only have one pigeon and five million pigeon holes. You are going to have unused pigeon holes.

I think there are more effective ways to do this. Does Patrick even make money off this site?

In any case, I have to call into question why whether or not homosexuality even matters. Even if it were a choice, that should not affect civil rights or moral judgement. After all, why shouldn't people have the right to choose to be gay? If you could go into an Apple store and have them rewire your brain to be gay, shouldn't it be your choice and your choice alone whether or not to do that? Granted, I wouldn't want Apple "geniuses" messing around with my brain. They'll copy a stink beetle's brain and claim they invented it.

I have to call into question why [it] even matters.

I wondered about that for a long time, and I think the reasons relate to the American Civil Rights movement and partisan politics.

Other countries had what might today be called gay activists, going back more than a century to Karl Ulrichs, Oscar Wilde, Magnus Hirschfeld, and Alan Turing. (Albert Einstein signed one of Hirschfeld's petitions in Weimar Germany.) FDR and Eleanor Roosevelt had openly gay friends, though not gay activists per se.

Real political success resulted from identifying sexual orientation as an innate difference closely related to biological sex (male/female/nonbinary), especially after the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibited discrimination on the basis of sex and religion. A series of cases showed illegal discrimination against women who behaved too much like men (for example, a Price Waterhouse accountant was told to improve her chances by wearing makeup, acting more feminine, and not swearing like the men did). These cases led to a realization that lesbians and gay men were encountering discrimination on the basis of sex and religion: they were doing things that would be entirely appropriate if they had been of opposite sex, that various religions prohibited same-sex couples from doing.

As Democrats became more committed to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and as Republicans continued to oppose it, the nature vs nurture difference gained more significance. Also, as PhRMA has gained political power in recent decades, especially over media since advertising Rx drugs on TV, the nexus between male homosexuality and HIV has ironically brought PhRMA on board. I see a lot of advertising&marketing aimed at promoting sero-discordant relationships, for example, and PrEP (prescribing anti-HIV drugs to people who don't even have HIV but might be at risk of getting it). Note such financial and political exploitation can work against the actual people involved, as vaccine research funding has been cut in order to maintain patronage network revenue models.

That actually is a result of the War on Us. Since black markets increase the price of banned goods hundreds of times over, those junkies couldn't just go to Walmart for their fix, they needed your cat. And how did they learn to rip off car parts? Well, since addiction is a crime, they probably spent time in jail, where they learned how to stay high in a government controlled market.

Genetic or environmental really only matters in terms of government involvement, and probably not even then. I suppose its probably important for the "wash the gay away" folks. .

A.) Prohibiting discrimination and making certain criminal acts hate crimes are one thing and certainly valid. Gay marriage as a legal matter is valid as well.

B.) However, compelling business to conduct itself in a certain manner, and worse yet compelling religious organizations to perform marriage ceremonies is wrong.

Heres the thing....homosexuals in the US already have A. They are now fighting for B under the guise of "gay rights".. That's a pretty big mistake and frankly, morally wrong. Its going to lead them to a similar places that BLM is right now. Once you have the equal footing, you should really drop the matter. Pride parades are fine...as long as you are honoring the history it took to get to where you are now. But from what I've seen, its more like a Trump hate fest, and the parade participants act like somehow they don't already have equal footing.

I agree with A.

Regarding B, the first part (prohibiting various businesses from discrimination), that's been law in many states for many years. Regarding the second part of B, I haven't seen anyone trying to compel religious organizations to perform marriage ceremonies. The nearest I've seen to that was a case in NJ where a church made so much money that it started buying up other properties to rent them out, while still not wanting to pay any taxes. The church made a deal with the town, allowing the church to buy a beach pavilion and not pay any taxes, on condition that the pavilion would operate on a non-discriminatory basis. The church rented out the pavalion for various purposes, including Jewish weddings, then objected suddenly to a gay wedding. The church had no involvement in the wedding, other than owning and renting out the building, so the church had to rent on equal terms or forgo the tax exemption. Similar cases go back a long time, e.g. where religious landlords have bought apartment buildings and tried to evict gay couples from their homes.

I agree with your points about BLM and TDS, but parade participants include a broad range. Yesterday, SF Pride included a long line of corporate floats and representation from some of the most successful companies in the world, followed by the Democratic Socialists with signs demanding "Queer Liberation, not Rainbow Capitalism." The weather was beautiful, pure blue skies, and SFPD ensured a safe event for more than a million people with widely divergent interests and opinions.

I said that "like" and "unlike" is relative to the set of genetic code being compared. That has nothing to do with the relativism of truth.

Think about it, man. If you live in a small tribe composed of 50% Africans and 50% Europeans and you're European, then you'll favor Europeans and may even violently oppose the Africans. However, if you live in a small tribe composed of 50% Africans and 50% homo erectus and you're European, then you'll protect the Africans and violently oppose the homo erectus because the Africans are now the individuals like you.

The Muslim conquest of India killed more than 60 million Hindus who had never done anything to Muslims in Arabia. In Islam, all roads lead to killing disbelievers and striking terror into the enemies of Allah, because Mohamed designed and fabricated ("revealed") the Koran and hadith for that purpose. It is an instruction manual for global conquest, developed over the course of his lifetime. Look at the pacific archipelagos, for example, and Muslims killing other Muslims in the name of Islam.
