Misology in America Part 3:Scientific Fraud - Homosexuality
By Robert E. Reis
Misology is the hatred of objective knowledge gained by the scrupulous use of the scientific method when it contradicts the political goals, ideology or religious faith of the misologists.
Misologists dominate the discussion of public policies in several areas in the modern world.
In the United States misologists predominate in the media, the universities, the schools, and among the elected politicians and the clergy.
In Part 1 I presented evidence that misologists dominate the public discussion of the distribution of the general mental ability factor or IQ in various identifiable human genetic clusterings.
In Part 2 I presented evidence that misologists dominate the public discussion of the health hazards of smoking tobacco.
This essay will document the stranglehold misologists hold on the public discussion of homosexuality.
Homosexuality is erotic activity with another of the same sex. A homosexual is a person who directs sexual desire towards another of the same sex. Queerly enough, homosexuality was not part of the English language before 1892.
Before 1973 the American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychology Association, and the National Association of Social Workers recognized homosexuality as a formal disorder. A disorder is an abnormal physical or mental condition.
The seminal scientific study used to normalize homosexuality appeared in 1957. Dr. Evelyn Hooker claimed that “homosexuals [are] not inherently abnormal and that there [is] no difference between the pathologies of homosexual and heterosexual men.” [3 Hooker, E., “The Adjustment of the Male Overt Homosexual” (Journal of Projective Techniques, 1957,
An honest scientist would have used the existing standardized projective tests for psychopathology. Hooker ignored the existing standardized tests and invented her own.
Hooker should have selected two groups of men, one homosexual, the other heterosexual, that were carefully matched for characteristics and who were kept ignorant of the purpose of the study.
Instead, Hooker deliberately recruited homosexual men with the help of homosexual activist groups who told the homosexual men the purpose of the study was to transform society’s attitudes towards homosexuality. She later boasted publicly that, “I knew the men for whom the ratings were made, and I was certain as a clinician that they were relatively free of psychopathology.” [14 American Psychologist, April 1993 Vol. 48, No. 4, 450-453] She deliberately screened out subjects who admitted to being in therapy for mental or emotionally problems, thus insuring there was little risk of too many people revealing pathological symptoms on her projective tests.
During her experiment Hooker was shocked to discover that her male homosexual subjects were revealing aspects of their personalities that conflicted with her theory. Each of her subjects was initially to be evaluated with three well-known psychological tests. When Hooker found that two of the three tests easily distinguished homosexuals from heterosexuals, Hooker simply omitted the results of the two tests that proved her hypothesis was wrong from her report.
This piece of fraudulent garbage was the primary “scientific” report relied on by the American Psychiatric Association to decide that homosexuality was not a medical disorder.
In 1965 Dr. Judd Marmor, a psychiatrist at UCLA, picked Hooker to be the chairman of the National Institute of Mental Health Task Force on Homosexuality. Marmor soon became Vice President of the American Psychiatric Association.
The Task Force on Homosexuality also included Alfred Kinsey’s close colleagues Paul Gebhard and John Money.
Paul Gebhard would be a key player at the American Psychiatric Association meeting that normalized homosexuality. Gebhard is the co-founder of the Sexual Information and Education Council of the United State (SIECUS). What kind of man is Paul Gebhard?
An interview with Gebhard was recorded in 1992 where he discussed how the Kinsey Institute got “data” about the sexuality of children as young as six months of age. The Kinsey Institute ordered pedophiles to keep careful records of their activities for scientific purposes. The transcript of this interview reveals the ethical standards of Paul Gebhard.
Interviewer: “So, do pedophiles normally go around with stopwatches?”
Like Gebhard, John Money, had unconventional attitudes towards homosexual pedophilia. “If I were to see the case of a boy aged ten or eleven who’s intensely erotically attracted toward a man in his twenties or thirties, if the relationship is totally mutual, and the bonding is genuinely totally mutual…then I would not call it pathological in any way.”
Money was awarded the Magnus Hirschfeld Medal in 2002 from the “German Society for Social-Scientific Sexuality Research”. Magnus Hirschfeld (May 14, 1868 - May 14, 1935) was a German Jewish physician, sexologist, and gay rights advocate.
In 1971 the American Psychiatric Association agreed to sponsor a special panel —not on homosexuality, but by homosexuals. The program chairman had been warned that if the panel was not approved, homosexual activists would ruin the entire convention.
The activists secured an appearance before the APA’s crucial Committee on Nomenclature and Statistics, responsible for publishing the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
Until 1973 the DSM had defined homosexuality medically, on a par with other sexual “deviations” because homosexuals did not have an adult person of the opposite sex as their primary object of sexual interest.
The APA created a special task force composed almost entirely of the same people from the Kinsey Institute who had packed the NIMH Task Force.
Another of Kinsey’s co-authors, Wardell B. Pomeroy, served on the 1973 APA Nomenclature Task Force. In his book Boys and Sex: Wardell B. Pomeroy Co –author of the Kinsey Reports, he writes that having sex with the male animal, ... whether it is a dog, horse, bull or some other species, may provide considerable erotic excitement for the boy…Psychically, animal relations may become of considerable significance to the boy who is having regular experience…[ and] in no point basically different from those that are involved in erotic responses to human situations…
In Variations magazine, Pomeroy offers this advice:
Wardell Pomeroy (like all his male colleagues) one of Kinsey’s lovers, argued the Kinsey data found that homosexuality was not associated with psychopathology. Pomeroy did not reveal the Kinsey data itself was fraudulently skewed by flagrant population sampling biases, and the badgering and even bribing of its many imprisoned or otherwise institutionalized subjects.
The new committee invited testimony from homosexual activists, homosexual psychiatrists and homosexual psychologists.
Charles Silverstein, Ph.D. (who would later author
The National Institute of Mental Health presented its official position on homosexuality: 1. Exclusive homosexuality was a normal part of the human condition. 2. Homosexuality did not meet the requirements of a psychiatric disorder since it “does not either regularly cause subjective distress or is regularly associated with some generalized impairment in social effectiveness or functioning.
Following the advice of the new homosexual advisers, two -thirds of the APA’s Board of Trustees voted to remove homosexuality as a psychiatric disorder, with only two abstentions.
By 2002 the misologist community was suggesting that sadomasochism, pedophilia and fetishism and all the other deviations should be removed from diagnostic terminology of the American Psychiatric Association.
The misologists expect us to believe that decades of research and clinical experience have led all mainstream mental health organizations in this country to the conclusion that homosexuality is a normal form of human sexuality. The facts are otherwise.
Scientists have discovered there are differences in the behavioral patterns and psychology of homosexual and heterosexual males and females. For example, there is markedly greater prevalence of alcoholism among female homosexuals compared with female heterosexuals and there is a markedly greater incidence of suicide attempts by male homosexuals compared with male heterosexuals. The number of homosexuals reporting psychiatric hospitalization is at least five times as high as it should have been if the theory there is “no difference” between homosexuals and heterosexuals were true.
The Laumann Study is admitted to be a landmark scientific study of homosexuality in the United States. [Edward O. Laumann, John H. Gagnon, Robert T. Michael, and
Laumann shocked the misologists when he observed that homosexuality is not a stable trait. Furthermore, the authors found to their surprise that its instability over the course of life was one - directional: declining, and significantly so. Homosexuality tended spontaneously to “convert” into heterosexuality as a cohort of individuals aged, and this was true for both men and women.
This finding was so unexpected that researchers all over the world have sought to corroborate or disconfirm it. This body of research has confirmed that homosexuals often become heterosexuals as they age, heterosexuals almost never travel in the contrary direction as they age.
