Males do not represent two discrete populations, heterosexual and homosexual. The world is not to be divided into sheeps and goats. Not all things are black nor all things white.
â€¨â€¨The only unnatural sex act is that which you cannot perform. â€¨
~ Alfred Kinsey (1894-1956)
â€¨â€¨Continuing my trilogy of three prophets of the sexual revolution – having profiled Sigmund Freud and Margaret Mead – we now come to perhaps the most zealous and fanatical, the person who most effectively and comprehensively used the machinery of “science” (including his iconic lab coats, charts, graphs and reams of data) to hide and rationalize his Caligula-like sexual depravity, which we are only now realizing knew no boundaries due to the extreme censorship that exists to this day of “The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction” at Indiana University.
Of course, I am referring to Dr. Alfred Kinsey, whose most singular and enduring legacy is normalizing homosexuality as just another lifestyle choice in his famous book, “Sexual Behavior in the Human Male” (1948), which 20 years later would set the stage for America’s sexual revolution of the 1960s, perhaps even inspiring such societal upheavals as the Stonewall Riots in New York’s Greenwich Village, which historians believed sparked the homosexual revolution in 1969, leading to the legalization of same-sex marriage in six states to date.
However, Alfred Kinsey in his famous book devolved even deeper into the abyss of increasingly deviant sexuality behaviors – pedophilia and pre-adolescent sexuality (including sections on the repeated raping of babies and small children), masturbation, sadomasochism, cannibalism, bestiality, even using his wife and his all-male research assistants in spontaneous orgies in his home … all in the name of “science.”
In my study of history, literature, politics and philosophy, one of the most enduring and tragic leitmotivs I’ve found is this: Show me a monopoly [liberal fascism] and I’ll show you tyranny [societal collapse]. In a previous article on anthropologist Margaret Mead, I quoted fellow anthropologist Dr. Martin Orans, who in his 1996 book, “Not Even Wrong: Margaret Mead, Derek Freeman and the Samoans,” exposed Mead’s anthropological work on the Samoans as a total fraud and asked these series of deeply probing Socratic questions:
How did Mead’s “Coming of Age in Samoa” – which Orans shows to be riddled with “extensive methodological faults” and plagued by a “paucity or absence of supporting data for her argument” – become so influential?
How could anthropologists and other eminent scholars have largely ignored such blatant defects?
How could generations of university professors have included “Coming of Age in Samoa” as required reading for students?
How could such a flawed work have served as a steppingstone to fame?
Orans pulls back the iron curtain of progressive lies, education atheism and liberal propaganda and admits that the No. 1 reason is “ideological … we wanted Mead’s [e.g., Darwin's, Marx's, Nietzsche's, Freud's, Kinsey's] findings to be correct. We believed that a more permissive sexual code would be of benefit to us all.”
Like Machiavelli, Descartes, Hobbes, Rousseau, Marx, Hegel, J.S. Mill, Darwin, Nietzsche, Lenin, Margaret Sanger, Hitler, Freud, Mead, Betty Friedan and Sartre, Kinsey’s atheism animated his hatred of America’s Judeo-Christian traditions, especially in regards to sexual morality. Kinsey’s “research” was in essence a grand pseudo-scientific fraud perpetrated against American society where he used male prostitutes and prisoners incarcerated for sexual deviancy and violent, psycho-pathological behaviors as his test models, which of course skewed his findings but gave Kinsey all of the scientific data and fraudulent conclusions he so desperately coveted. For example, it was later revealed that Kinsey used data from a single pedophile and presented it as being from various sources.
Review Dr. Orans questions and plug in any of the most famous books by author’s I’ve cited above and you will rightly deduce that their celebrated books were merely thinly disguised and pathetic attempts to deconstruct the Judeo-Christian traditions of philosophy, morality, science, medicine, law, economics, culture, society and intellectual thought by: 1) deconstructing, killing or ignoring God, the Bible and natural law, 2) denigrating the good while deifying the evil, the depraved, the primitive, the unremarkable and the unjust, and 3) instituting abnormal behaviors demonstrative of the writer’s own personal character and life choices by slavishly following this diabolical yet simple aphorism: The primitive = the natural = the good.
British psychiatrist and Kinsey biographer Theodore Dalrymple defined Kinsey’s infamous legacy in this manner:
Alfred Kinsey was a very strange man. He was repressed sexually until quite a late age, and then expressed his sexuality in more and more bizarre forms as he grew older. His was a classic case of the appetite increasing with the feeding. Once you are on the treadmill of exploring sensation as the key to contentment, you have to experience more and more extreme things. I think this explains the logic of artistic production and how “transgressive” becomes a term of praise.
Expanding Dr. Dalrymple’s analysis beyond medicine and science to history, politics, economics, culture and society, it would appear that our modern-day zeitgeist is this – the regressive ["transgressive"] = the progressive [politics] = the good.
Echoing Machiavelli’s paradigm of the lion (ruthless) and the fox (trickery), which the prince must exert, Kinsey believed that humans should not be defined by what they ought to do, but only what they actually do. Therefore, to Kinsey sexual deviation is a myth; any sexuality is acceptable, regardless of how morally depraved, because since it exists in somebody’s mind it must be part of the natural spectrum and therefore cannot be illicit, abnormal or unnatural. This aspect of Kinsey’s theory is derivative of Descartes who created the dualist self, which is a spirit/ghost trapped in a machine. Once the spirit is removed from the body all that remains is a machine that under Kinsey’s expression of human sexuality was merely mechanistic, hedonistic and devoid of love.
Kinsey’s virulent atheism is the driving force he has in common with the liberal canon of amoral writers cited above. His pseudo-science ushered in the sexual revolution, legitimized, disseminated and facilitated both in courts and classrooms to coerce a perpetual movement that began in the 1960s and through which American society is cursed with today under the liberal academy and the Democratic Party in the Age of Obama.
