Karl Heinrich Ulrichs, the first openly gay man, argued in pamphlets starting in 1864 that " an Urning [his coinage for a gay male] is not a man, but is a type of hermaphrodite, a man-woman with the sexual orientation of a woman," a "third sex." Ulrichs used the Latin phrase anima muliebris virili corpore inclusa (the soul of a woman in the body of man) to sum up his theory: "Distinct from the feminine persuasion of our sexual drive, we Urnings have still another feminine trait in us which, so it seems to me, offers the most positive proof that nature developed the physical male germ in us, yet mentally, the feminine one." A century before Ulrichs, molly houses existed in 18th century England whose participants engaged in feminine behavior.A contemporary witness: "they rather fancy themselves as women, imitating all the little vanities that custom has reconciled to the female sex, affecting to speak, walk, tattle, curtsy, cry, scold, and to mimic all the manner of effeminacy that ever has fallen within their several observations." Historical examples of possibly gay men include the Greek/Roman kinaidos/cinaedi and Native American berdaches.
Jared's room is decked out with camouflage, airplanes, and military toys, while Adam's room sports a pastel canopy, stuffed animals, and white horses. To prove this correlation, a group at Northwestern University recruited homosexual and heterosexual adults who had videos from their childhood (i.e., from ages 0 to 15 years), and we also videotaped them during an interview.When Stahl came for a visit, Jared was eager to show her his G.  Subsequently, we recruited homosexual and heterosexual adults to rate the degree of gender nonconformity from both the childhood and the adult video clips.In other words, people can pick up on non-sexual cues like movement, speech, and appearance to correctly assess whether someone is gay or not.These differences are not just superficial mannerisms either, but are deep inside the brain.Thus, if gay men are not feminine, there is no mechanism for them having been born that way.
If gays don't acknowledge that gay is on average more effeminate, then they can't insist that they are born that way. Adam's mannerisms matched his feminine interests: there was no difficulty telling which boy was more effeminate.Even a cursory review of the science tells us that gays indeed are born that way.But there's an important caveat that the gay activists don't mention when trumpeting this good news.In the interest of working with a common source accessible to all, can anyone find gay men on You Tube who are not at least somewhat effeminate? ) An effeminate ex-boyfriend of mine could flirt with women better than any other man I've seen.Or take a Canadian show called "1 girl 5 gays." With a rotating cast of about twenty gay men talking about "love and sex," you'd think one would be masculine but all exhibit varying degrees of effeminacy not generally seen in straight men. So I asked him why he didn't want to have sex with women.The verbal fluency and memory of gay men exceeds that of other men, mirroring that of women.
