Steave Deace believes his wife is nothing more than a traditionally acceptable orifice. - Elf M. Sternberg
Steave Deace believes his wife is nothing more than a traditionally acceptable orifice.
Last night, on the drive home from karate class, I made the unfortunate mistake of turning off the ipod (full of show tunes, natch) and turning on Steve Deace, a Catholic-oriented darling rising star of the right, whose tagline reads "Fear God. Tell the Truth. Make Money."

Deace was dissing Michelle Obama-- you know, one half of the First Marriage since Teddy Roosevelt to be both on their first marriage and to have avoided even a whiff of infidelity-- about her praise for Michael Sam, the NFL draft pick who decided to come out of the closet before he was chosen for a team. "This is a woman who says to her children, 'I admire a man who wants to have sex with a waste disposal.'"

That Deace's approach to Sam's sexual orientation comes down to the act of anal sodomy only emphasizes his use and abuse of The Ick Factor. But when Deace writes that way, when he reduces the emotional and romantic universe of same-sex attraction to the mere act of using another human being for getting off, he reduces his own relationship to his wife to nothing more than access to a traditionally accepted hole. I can't help but wonder how she feels about that.

Years back, I ran into someone using the "anal sex is icky" argument for being anti-gay on a BBS (yes, *that* long ago)

I pointed out that straights do anal too. Then I asked *him* to come up with percentages for how much of the population was gay, and how much of the straight population does anal.

Funny thing. If you get someone to do that you'll most likely be able to some that that several *times* as many het couples as gay couples do anal.

Seems that the percentage of gays such folks come up with is usually a lot lower than the "standard" 10%. Which means that they have to come up with a *really* low percentage of anal sex for the straights to have the numbers come even close.

It doesn't *quite* qualify as a mathematical trick, but it's close enough to one to be useful in many an argument.

Really bothers those folks when you can use "their own" numbers to show that more straights than gays do anal (in absolute numbers). Brings their "logic" chains crashing down in ruins.
