Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt

WebMD has an article today with the following headline:

“Many Straight Men Have Gay Sex.”

And in case you don’t get it, here’s the lede: “Nearly one in 10 men who say they’re straight have sex only with other men, a New York City survey finds.”

Yeah, I hate to break it to you guys, but if you’re having sex with other men, then you’re gay. This also begins to explode the myth that homosexuality is in-born and not a behavior you pick up. There may be a biological pre-disposition, but it’s not destiny.

More than anything else though, it just goes to show how confused and chaotic our society’s approach to sex has become. In reality it’s fairly simple: a bond between a husband and wife for the purposes of procreation and sacramental unification, a bond of love that results in total-self-giving between the spouses and allows us to cooperate with God in the act of creating new life ex nihilo.

Not any more though. Sex is a million different things, 99 percent of which are unfulfilling and empty, providing a momentary thrill followed by a crushing emptiness. But that’s okay, they all say, because whatever two consenting adults decide to do is de facto moral and right. Yeah, right.
