With gay marriages legal in all states, Sexual Revolution is complete in US
With the Supreme Court verdict legalising same sex marriages in all American states, the country has plunged into celebrations. Why not? The Sexual Revolution that began in the Western world in the wake of Industrial Revolution, is now complete. Normal marriages have become “cold”, Same sex marriages “hot”.
It was more than a decade back when I had written the following in my book, The Killer Sex:
Sexual Revolution has taught us that sex is not for life, but life is for sex. That sex must overrule every other consideration and overcome every obstacle in its way. If it is the custodian of law, it must learn to behave; if it is the inspector of religion, it has to be dismissed; and if it is the police of morality, it has to be confronted. It has made us believe that sex must not necessarily be between a human and a human; it can be between a human and an animal. That sex must not always require two sexes; it may be between a man and a man, and between a woman and a woman. That sex must not have to be between two adults: it may be between an adult and a child. That sex may not unfailingly involve those who are not linked by blood; it may involve a mother and a son, a father and a daughter and a brother and a sister. That sex should not always be limited to two individuals; many may join simultaneously. That sex must not necessarily use organs that are naturally meant for it; any organ that can be penetrated is fit for coitus. That sex must not necessarily be enjoyed away from the public gaze; it may be performed in front of their staring eyes and exhilarating hearts and brains. That sex must not necessitate any formal declaration; any two consenting individuals can have it without warranting any social or legal sanction. That, in extreme circumstances, sex does not even require consent; if one is smart enough to hoodwink law or bold enough to face it, one may even rape without fearing too much. That sex does not have to be for fulfilling one’s legitimate physical and psychological desires; it may also be for filling one’s coffer. That sex need not be the corollary of love; it may be purchased or sold in the market. That whatever comes in the way of sex must be mercilessly gotten away with even if it is a human-in-making. In a nutshell, Sexual Revolution has convinced us that sex knows no bounds. The old saying must be redefined thus: everything is fair in love, sex and war.
Though I had touched upon the subject of gay marriages in that book, at that time my main focus was how normal marriages are being made unpopular by the merchants of sex. Marriage was the first casualty when the economic fundamentalists realised the huge potential of sex and sexual attraction becoming a global market. With more and more women required in the market, marriages were considered a big impediment. One law after the other was promulgated to make marriage obsolete. Marriage before a certain age was declared illegal; sex at any age was legal. Marriage with more than a woman was banned while promiscuity prospered. Abortions and children out of wedlock became the order of the day. Marriage still continued to be popular after a certain age because the natural desire to have children and their nurturing still made people feel for it. They at least chose to try, even at the risk of its failing in majority of the cases. At that time, I did not fully realise that within about a decade, the “revolution” will turn abundantly gay.
When homosexuality attracted the attention of big business, rules were changed. If gay business is to grow, regular production of gays was necessary. They realised that heterosexual behaviour being inherent in every human, it could be difficult to sustain homosexuality. Not only its institutionalisation and glorification are necessary to make people addicts of homosexuality, new ways will have to be found to keep up the momentum. So, while marriages of heterosexuals were never promoted, same sex marriages were mooted, and have now become legal all across the Western world. With gay couples adopting children (all of whom are born through heterosexual relations), their growing in the company of gays will make them more likely candidates of homosexuality. With the clan of homosexuals rising in numbers, they will choose to marry their children among themselves, of course boys with boys and girls with girls.
While celebrations are on for the gays, there are not many tears for the lives of children who, adopted by gays, will have to grow in an entirely abnormal habitat. A normal child requires the love of a mother and a father; he will now have the company of either only men or only women, with none being their natural parent. And these poor children will have no choice of their own in choosing their “parents”.
What a revolution! With social issues like abortion, single parenthood, out of wedlock child birth, divorces crippling natural relationship between man and woman, the world must brace up to face another set of issues, with abnormal children produced by gay families. The problem will not take more than two decades to become full-blown. But two decades is a long time for the big business. Let them first commercialise, the problem; when the right time comes they will commercialise solutions.
President Obama must be cheering too. He has kept up his promise to safeguard the “rights” of gays. It is natural that the ruling for him was a “victory for America”. “When all Americans are treated as equal, we are all more free, “ he said. “Long Live American Equality!”
