I say "relative silence" because, unless he's a Catholic priest, the relativist left's false narrative is that a "gay" man is always the victim and never the victimizer.
Nonetheless, this latest episode has once again shined the spotlight on the long-established link between the homosexual lifestyle/movement and pedophilia - a link that, despite "progressive" denials to the contrary, is hiding in plain sight.
Egan has filed suit against Singer and several other high-profile Hollywood figures for homosexually assaulting him and other boys repeatedly at several "'infamous' coke and twink pool parties" back when Egan was 15 and Singer was 32. (In the "LGBT" vernacular "twinks," also called "chicken," are highly sought-after underage boys used for sex by adult "gay" men.)
Egan's claims eerily mirror those of former child actor Corey Feldman who similarly alleged last year that such homosexual abuse is rampant, even systemic, in Hollywood.
But are these allegations really that shocking? Regrettably, the overwhelming weight of the evidence indicates that the abuse runs rampant well beyond just Hollywood.
To be sure, not all homosexuals are pedophiles. Yet a grossly disproportionate number of them are. I don't write this to be insensitive, "hateful," intolerant or "homophobic."
It's "just the facts, Ma'am."
Consider, for instance, a study published in the left-leaning Archives of Sexual Behavior of over 200 convicted pedophiles and pederasts. It found that "86 percent of offenders against males described themselves as homosexual or bisexual." This demonstrates, as notes Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council, that "homosexual or bisexual men are approximately 10 times more likely to molest children than heterosexual men."
The connection between homosexual abuse and "gay identity" is undeniable. Although clearly not all "gay"-identified men and women abuse children, or were abused as children, the verifiable reality is that an alarmingly high percentage of them do and were. As with most forms of abuse, the cycle is both circular and vicious. "Born that way?" Not so much. "Made that way?" Sadly, it appears so.
But of equal concern is the fact that many of the most prominent "LGBT" activists across the globe have either overtly endorsed, or given their implicit approval of, what the left euphemistically calls "intergenerational intimacy" (read: child rape).
Take "marriage equality" activist Peter Tatchell, for instance. The GLAAD-affiliated blog "GoodAsYou" glowingly describes Tatchell as a "noted British rights activist." He's "one of the most widely respected leaders of the international LGBT movement" one of the blog's commenters gushes.
following in The Guardian, one of the U.K.'s premier newspapers:
"The positive nature of some child-adult sexual relationships is not confined to non-Western cultures. Several of my friends - gay and straight, male and female - had sex with adults from the ages of nine to 13. None feel they were abused. ... [I]t is time society acknowledged the truth that not all sex involving children is unwanted, abusive and harmful."Or remember Kevin Jennings, President Obama's "safe school czar" and founder of the sexual extremist group GLSEN?
Wrote the Washington Times of Jennings in 2009:
"A teacher was told by a 15-year-old high school sophomore that he was having homosexual sex with an 'older man.' At the very least, statutory rape occurred. Fox News reported that the teacher violated a state law requiring that he report the abuse. That former teacher, Kevin Jennings, is President Obama's 'safe school czar.' ...Jennings later lied about the encounter until audio surfaced of him bragging on it. "I looked at [the boy]," he quipped, "and said, 'You know, I hope you knew to use a condom.'"
"In this one case in which Mr. Jennings had a real chance to protect a young boy from a sexual predator, he not only failed to do what the law required but actually encouraged the relationship."
Still, this pattern of homosexual abuse and facilitation of such abuse by the "LGBT" movement is nothing new.
Take Jennings hero Harry Hay. Hay is considered the "founding father" of the modern "gay rights" movement. Among other things, he has been honored as an "icon" for "LGBT History Month" by the entire homosexual activist community.
Not surprisingly, Hay was a child rape enthusiast and avid supporter of the pedophile North American Man/Boy Love Association, or NAM/BLA. In 1983, while keynoting a NAM/BLA event, Hay said the following:
"It seems to me that in the gay community the people who should be running interference for NAM/BLA are the parents and friends of gays. Because if the parents and friends of gays are truly friends of gays, they would know from their gay kids that the relationship with an older man is precisely what 13-, 14-, and 15-year-old kids need more than anything else in the world."sexual predator known to have statutorily raped, repeatedly, a drug-addicted, teenage, runaway boy. Milk's punishment? The Obama administration just awarded him an honorary USPS postage stamp.
Am I the only one who sees the pattern here? Has the goddess of "tolerance" really driven the world completely blind with madness?
If consistency holds, and these allegations against Bryan Singer prove true (the evidence suggests they well may), I'll wager he ends up with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the next keynote at the annual HRC Gala.
I'll also wager that, either way, we'll soon begin seeing more "intergenerational sex" aficionados "coming out of the closet."
Welcome to the bottom of the slippery slope.
