Spring quarter classes started this week and I had my first one yesterday! LGBT Seminar. I have a feeling that I will have lots of blog posts coming from discussion in that class!
At the beginning of class we watched this absolutely ridiculous video about how gay people are associated with a lopsided body. But this dude explains it in terms of kidneys. And symmetry. Yeaaah. If you click the video to go through to YouTube, you can see the maker of the video, Happeh, reply to comments on the stupid thing. Here are a few of his ideas behind his medical explanations.
Homosexuality can be caused by the imbalance between the two sides of the body. Or Homosexuality will cause the imbalance to worsen.
Yes it is abstract. What can I do? It is a short minutes long video.
The human body may not rest on a pair of oversized kidneys, but it is a valid theoretical model to use to demonstrate how the human body behaves in this situation."
Just to give you a slightly deeper look at happeh, here is what he says about bisexuality:
"Bisexuality is the intermediate stage between being straight and being homosexual.
A straight person will begin to develop homosexual feelings if they masturbate too much. They deal with these feelings by telling themselves they are bisexual.
Bisexuality only lasts for awhile. The process of the body changing continues until the person becomes fully homosexual.
There are, just like any thing else, exceptions. Not 100% of bisexuals will become 100% gay.
Um.. WHAT?! Excuse me?! So.. does that mean if someone loses a leg or an arm or .. whatever that they are suddenly gay? I'm confused.
But, I saw a weird pattern between this symmetry/lopsided body gay thing. Do you notice anything interesting here?
IS THIS WHY THE GAYS HAVE ASYMMETRICAL HAIR? ARE THEY TRYING TO BALANCE THEMSELVES OUT? IS IT DETERMINED FOR GAYS TO HAVE UNBALANCED HAIR?... AND LIVES?
Okay, CAPS is over. Whatcha think?! Love you all.
