Abnormal behaviour

Abnormal behaviour

By Mac Fingall | Sun, August 11, 2013 - 12:00 AM

THE WORLD IS NOW embroiled in discussion on homosexuality and same-sex marriage. It is a discussion that should be of concern to everyone for if allowed to dominate it could spell the end of mankind.

Homosexuality speaks of being sexually attracted to a person of the same sex. We all know that sexual activity between man and woman results in childbirth, which allows the world to continue.

Sex between two men or between two women cannot produce children – therefore it will be seen as  non-productive. But can it be seen as normal?

The way the human body is designed holds the answer to the question. The female body is designed  to accommodate the male body and the male body  is designed to fit the female body. This cannot be a mere coincidence.

This has to be an act of God, or for those who do not understand “God”, it has to be an act of nature – the phenomena of physical life not dominated by man. Therefore, this has to be seen as natural and normal.

It should now be clear that the sexual activity between “same-sexes” or homosexuals is not normal.

Having established the abnormality, I will now look at the ramifications of such an act.

Some people talk about the morality of homosexual behaviour. Personally, I don’t even get that far.  I believe that it is physiologically wrong for men to engage in sexual activity with other men. The anus  is made for exit only.

The sphincter muscle, which is an involuntary muscle, is designed to snap shut so tightly  that nothing can pass – not even the  slightest seepage.

The constant probing and invasion of the anus can and does cause the sphincter muscle to lose its elasticity and as a result it then cannot shut as tightly as it was originally designed to do.

Abnormal act

The result is that because of this abnormal act – homosexual activity – the individual whose sphincter muscle is not functioning as it should now has  to wear diapers.

Does this not prove that the human body is not designed for this behaviour – male or female?

Then there is the problem of faeces (excrement) getting into the bloodstream. If there is any broken skin, the faeces can enter the bloodstream and the result can be “acquired immune deficiency syndrome”, better as AIDS.

In my opinion, AIDS, being the result of this abnormal act, tells you that there is a punishment  for going against the natural wishes of God.

Now let us look at the normal and natural act of heterosexual activity. The vagina, which is placed in the perfect position for the pleasure it provides, is used only for sex and the results thereof. Surely I don’t have to tell you that it was not created to carry drugs.

Now, in understanding the imperfections  of life, it is easy to understand that everyone will  not be equally equipped mentally or physically.  When therefore there is an imbalance and an individual has mixed feelings or has both male and female reproductive organs making them a hermaphrodite, then this is understandable but  this is not the norm.

I remember, at a school overseas, where I was teaching, there was such a child, and we had several meetings to determine in which dressing room that child should change for physical education classes.  It was decided to let the individual change in girls’ dressing room. The assumption was that place  would be safer.

It made me understand things that I never even thought of. There was empathy and sympathy.

That was one individual in a school of several hundred. Surely not the norm.

Adopted children

But now imagine a society where several adopted children are living in homes with two gay parents.  The environment is sure to overpower them. To be influenced from so young with all the mannerisms  and inflections and blatant and obvious observations. Unnatural behaviour and practices constantly exhibited would become the norm to the child.

I believe that we should not neglect the abnormal ones, but our laws should focus on the normal ones.

 Same-sex marriage and homosexuality should not be encouraged.

It might not be "normal" being that it is not the orientation of the majority, but it is quite natural, and when one considers the frequency of its occurrence throughout history and even other species, it is then also quite normal.

Mac this is an unfounded and bigoted piece.

There are so many things that are not natural for humans that we maintain and indeed consider normal.

There is so much stupidity and misinformation in this article that my head hurts. It is scary to think that Mr. Fingall was allowed to teach people's children.

1. His comment that if homosexuality and gay marriage is "allowed to dominate it could spell the end of mankind" is the worst kind of rank, factless scare-mongering. The fact of the matter is there have always been homosexuals - it is not new. The fact is also that most humans are naturally inclined to be heterosexual.

2. The diapers/sphincter comment was just patently ridiculous. How many homosexuals are walking around wearing diapers? The truth is very few people are so damaged by anal sex that it requires diapers - and those are usually people who were forced (ie raped). The comment just had no place here.

3."If there is any broken skin, the faeces can enter the bloodstream and the result can be “acquired immune deficiency syndrome”, better as AIDS."! In 2013 are we really allowing people to spread such blatant, simplistic misinformation about how AIDS is spread? Mr. Fingall just went from point A to point Z as if faeces in the bloodstream automatically means you will get AIDS. I would like to think this is just ignorance but considering the whole tone of this column, I feel like it's deliberate misinformation.

4. Then to sum it up, is his comment that "the vagina... is used only for sex and the results thereof." Sooo.... what about vaginal functions like menstruation and urination? Are women aware that our vaginas are only to be used for "sex and the results thereof"? Should we make arrangements to pee from elsewhere then?

Fail all around Mr. Fingall.

Let's sweep it under the carpet.

There: now it's out of sight, so we can be much happier now.
Please come forward to the year 2000.
Please? -not even 2010...
we'd be content with moving you up to just 2000.

Mankind wasn't designed to drive cars or fly planes either, by the way..

I have never read so much cow crap in my entire life...I am yet to decide if most of this article was one of Mr. Fingalls 'bad taste' jokes or if he is truly serious. I am not even going to bother to bother with this...-_-

When I was growing up I thought that the ridiculous things that Mac said and did were funny. This however, is just wrong and loaded with misinformation, sexism and fear mongering. I am truly disappointed to see this and even more disappointed in the Nation for even publishing it - especially without a counter-argument of actual facts.

I will take it upon myself to share this article with as human rights organizations as possible. Shame on Mac Fingall for writing this drivel, and shame on the Nation for publishing it.

Disappointed in this, another classic example of homophobic spoutings; moreso, that it comes from an 'educator'.
By-the-way, I am a heterosexual male.

This is an insult to anyone afflicted with AIDS. The Nation owes the people of this country an apology for publishing this bigoted, hateful, uninformed drivel.

Firstly, sexuality cannot be limited to cause and effect parameters. If this were the case, intercourse would take place only for the purpose of reproduction. As sexual beings, regular sexual activity shapes individuals emotionally and socially, and therefore does not solely serve to populate the earth.

As for the varieties of intercourse, despite the hushed nature of the topic, homosexual AND heterosexual couples alike engage in the wide spectrum of sexual activity. Our evolved ability to think and reason and love and hate and have a sense of self all co-exist with sexual desire and gratification in all its colourful acts.

Lastly, there is never a need for outsiders to impose on an individual based on their lifestyle and choices. Our individuality is what gives us a sense of identity and what role we play within our families and our community. No one person has the right to infringe on an individual’s identity and subsequently their life choices. It was than 50 years ago that the miscegenation laws enforced racial segregation and criminalised interracial relationships and marriage in the United States. Our differences make us dynamic and solidify our ability to progress, revolutionise and innovate.

Christian preacher Phil Snider says it best in his speech:

Human rights for everyone – there is no difference.

Disgraceful post, absolutely horrified that the Nation is actually publishing this rubbish. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

Is it more acceptable and considered "normal" when an act has become commonplace? In Barbados most children are born out of wedlock. Is this now normal?

How does an adulterous parent explain to a child that the man who is his/her father was married to another woman at the time of conception? Is this normal? Will this practice be seen as the norm for that child when he/she reaches adulthood?

How we choose our vices and cherry-pick our sins is amazing to me. We have a tendency to compartmentalize and justify them depending on how wrapped up we are in a particular wrongdoing.

A married man can comfortably have two other women in our society and no one bats an eyelid. A woman can cheat on her husband with a young lover and nobody but the husband loses sleep. Is this because these practices have become normal?

The evidence has shown that children born and raised in same-sex households grow up to live "normal" lives and go on to seek different-sex partners and have a family.

The biggest problem a child being raised in a same-sex home may have is teasing from peers that he/she has two moms or two dads. Such teasing is no different than if the parents were heterosexual and had a physical disability or deformity. Children can be cruel and say hurtful things to each other.

What we need to bear in mind is that homosexual children are products of supposedly straight relationships or heterosexual households. The question must be asked, what did those parents do wrong for their children to end up being gay?...cont'd

Part 2...
On the subject of HIV/AIDS, it is very disheartening after all these years of public education and the freely available of information, that Mac Fingall still does not know how the disease is contracted and spread. It is difficult to determine if his position on anal leaks is a misguided understanding or is meant to be a sick joke, because it is really a poor attempt at humor.

I do not understand why same-sex relationships is the "whipping boy" by which our morality and normality is judged, especially when it has been around for almost as long as adultery and fornication.

One can only conclude that homophobia, coupled with bigotry and a desire to discriminate against the targeted and vulnerable group are at the center of this continuous attack, especially by people who should know better.

Fingall is entitled to his views, misguided as they may be. For instance, why same-sex marriage should herald the end of mankind anymore than contraception does is not clear, after all neither are for everyone all the time. And I am genuinely confused about where his logic about 'natural' pleasure leaves us on masturbation and in particular the use of the hand with its fingernails and all.

However, my real concern here is with The Nation. Has the newspaper now abandoned any ambitions to be a world class journalistic output? How could they allow a piece littered with so many clear and easily corrected bits of misinformation to be published in the interest of public debate. Fingall appears to have no knowledge of much of what he was writing about, including the female anatomy and the epidemiology of HIV. This was embarrassing for those of us who feel like ambassadors for our country - and more importantly- it was irresponsible.

I am sorry to say this Mr. Fingall but your writing on this subject sounds so elementary and your sentence structures read like a primary school child now learning subject and verb agreement and the importance of keeping sentences short and to the point.

You equate AIDS primarily as act of homosexuality. Is this true. I certainly do not condone or justify homosexuality because it is wrong on all accounts but if you are going to write like this I might as well be convinced by those who have articulate a pretty good case for homosexual rights. Terrible writing this is.
