homosexual world 1984 Delany, Samuel R. "The Tale of Fog and Granite " in Flight from Neveryon. Hanover, NH: Wesleyan University Press (1994; c. 1984); pg. 40. [Year indeterminate.] "Yet he remembered that almost every woman he'd been to bed with since his sixteenth year he'd told about his homosexual adventurings; all had been fascinated. If anything, it seemed to smooth the sexual preliminaries. Only if some other male might overhear it would he hesitate to tell a woman he wanted to pleasure of these masculine explorations.

homosexual world 1985 Delany, Samuel R. "The Game of Time and Pain " in Return to Neveryon. Hanover, NH: Wesleyan University Press (1994); pg. 23. "Among the sexual encounters with adults (almost all of them men) that plague, pleasure, and -- perhaps -- heal as many such lost children as they harm (for it is not hard to be kind to those who provide pleasure; and kindness must often do for those who lack all love), there were, now and again, those who wanted to collar and chain him.

'No way!' Udrog had protested.

And was surprised when his protests were, generally, heeded.

Then, of course, there was the man who suggested as an alternative: 'Well, will you chain and collar me!'

That was certainly more feasible.

Only thirteen, Udrog had done it--and had recognized in the shaking, moaning body beneath his juvenile assault a naked pleasure, which made the boy (as he hit and cursed and labored) pant, sweat, burn...

But when men asked to abuse him, he still said no -- sometimes. " [Many more refs. to homosexual pedophilia, not in DB.]

I looked up 'Enigma' and 'Ultra.' I found a fellow named Peter Thornton. His picture looked like you. The books made him seem like a hero.'

Tuthy smiled wanly.

'but there was this note in one book. You disappeared in 1965. You were being prosecuted for something. They didn't say what you were being prosecuted for.'

'I'm a homosexual,' Tuthy said quietly.

'Oh. So what?'

'Lauren and I met in England in 1964. We became good friends. They were going to put me in prison, Pal. She smuggled me into the U.S. through Canada.'

'But you said you're a homosexual. They don't like women.'

'Not at all true, Pal. Lauren and I like each other very much. We could talk. She told me about her dreams of being a writer... I worked too hard... burned myself out and had a nervous breakdown. My lover--a man--kept me alive throughout the forties...' " [More.]

"...wore dark wings of paint around their eyes, and affectation that, when Clodon first saw it, struck him not so much as sexual as it did a simple sign to signify what position you held in the endless chain of displacements, replacements, and exchanges, that made up life on the bridge as much as it did life in the market beyond. The masculinity Clodon treasured and that, yes, he would admit it, seemed so subtly compromised by the homosexual encounters that, despite his basic inclination, from time to time necessity forced him to take part in, at first seemed easier to secure by showing no sign at all. Yet those hustlers, usually older, whose self-presentation was a parody of that same masculinity, with great weapon belts and bits of armor worn over old rags and rude retorts to half the inquiries from potential clients and even more foul language than was customary on that most foul-tongued walkway...

homosexual world 1994 Delany, Samuel R. "Appendix: Closures and Openings " in Return to Neveryon. Hanover, NH: Wesleyan University Press (1994); pg. 287. Pg. 287: "All novelistic narrative... takes place more or less against the following grid: Imagine an equal number of male and female characters. Now divide both into upper class, middle class, and working class, an equal number of males and females in each. Now, for each class and sex, divide your characters into children, adults, and oldsters. For the more modern tale-teller, the grid can be refined even more. Split each of the resultant groups into equal numbers of heterosexuals and homosexuals... But this chart, this grid must eventually specify every possible racial/social/age/gender/sexual type, all of which become ideally equal through their accessibility on this fictive grid. "; Pg. 286: "Immediately on this imaginary chart we must be able to locate the sixty-four-year-old upper class homosexual Hispanic woman comic-book artist as easily as the twenty-eight-year-old heterosexual lower-middle-class white male private detective.

"'People don't know themselves back there, Casper. They cannot take a deep breath and know themselves. Knowing they have -- facts. Wisdom, not so. Most are hung up on sex. Women are trapped in male bodies, thousands of gay men long to be hetero . . . Humanity has fallen into a bad dream, rejecting spirituality, clinging to self -- to lowly biological origins.' "

If they so much as suspect you of being offensive, or bigoted or even faintly patronizing to any of those groups you can get fired from your job, sued in court . . . you're an outcast.'

homosexual world 1996 Fry, Stephen. Making History. New York: Random House (1996); pg. 307. "'You're putting me on, right?'

'No, no. Really. Homosexuals are called gays and they have parades and Gay Pride marches and Mardi Gras festivals and whole streets and quarters are given over to gay shops and gay bars and gay restaurants and gay banks and gay insurance brokers, gay everything. Only it's a bit more complicated because they've started to use the word 'queer' again, just as blacks call themselves 'niggers' . . . it's called 'reclaiming,' something like that. In Hawaii gay people can even get married. There's a right-wing backlash of course. The liberals think there's still a lot of discrimination, the Bible-thumpers think it's all gone too far and that political correctness is an un-American contamination.' "

Pg. 111: "...was not only embalmed in heroin through most of his adult life but had murdered his wife--and, like O. J. Simpson, got away with it. He was openly queer long before most other gays uncloseted themselves, and his published erotic fantasies dwelled obsessively on pedophilic rape and murder.

Delany] produced a novel/memoir/diatribe, The Mad Man, with the doubtful thesis that HIV is not the cause of AIDS, a favorite lost cause among queer theorists, the late Michel Foucault among them... Ursula Le Guin and Joanna Russ have shared Delany's fate, to some degree, but since their (feminist) sexual politics are less radical than Delany's (whose pornographic novels are as doctrinairely transgresive as de Sade's), they have maintained an emeritus standing within the genre, while Delany seems to have changed his permanent address from science fiction to academe.

Even though our organisation has always been tolerant of such victimless 'crimes' as prostitution, blasphemy, drug-taking, belonging to a trade union, sex and/or procreation outside marriage, homosexuality and so on, the societies in which we have to live and with which we have to trade have usually had other ideas, so secrecy and blackmail have never been entirely off the menu.

'That's stupid,' Shawbeck said... 'How in hell does a disease know whether a woman is shacked up with somebody or now?'...

'It's in the stats,' Dicken counted. 'We checked this out very thoroughly. It's transmitted from males to their female partners, over a fairly long exposure. Homosexual men do not transmit it to their partners. If there is no heterosexual contact, it is not passed along. It's a sexually transmitted disease, but a selective one.' "

The symbs were breeding subcultures like clap in a brothel; it was politically inevitable that there would be gay communities springing up in the vast chagas of Ecuador and southern Venezuela.

homosexual world 2010 Hickman, Tracy. The Immortals. New York: ROC/Penguin Books (1997; c. 1996); pg. 134-135. "The last of the graveyard shift shuffled past Gene, leaving him alone once more. It was the same song, he reflected, and always the same refrain. In the eyes of the 'natural' world--as the majority so often enthroned itself--the homosexuals were freakish and dangerous, a threat to the natural order of humanity. Over the march of centuries, that same watchful patriarchal eye of western civilization turned on the whim of history its gaze in alternating turns of amusement, disgust, pity, hatred, tolerance, anger, indifference, and raging, murderous violence.

Yet Gene knew this history was not fully his. The gays and lesbians shared an occult culture and history that was their own--even the word 'occult' was misunderstood as being demonic and evil rather than it original meaning: 'hidden.' For hidden truly represented their roots--roots from which they all to often felt cut off and alone. "

homosexual world 2010 Hickman, Tracy. The Immortals. New York: ROC/Penguin Books (1997; c. 1996); pg. 135. "Their [gays & lesbians] past was not written in books but carried on through oral traditions of dubious reliability. Those parts that were not passed on by word of mouth were left only to be guessed at from the shadows of texts whose nuances were purposely left unclear. Hidden was their culture, which through ages as old as mankind developed into a civilization of secret signs and rituals--not for the calling down of some dark power, but simply to identify one another and communicate with a language that was their own. Such communication, whether through small symbols in meaningful places, verbal keywords that were meaningless to the hostiles about them or subtle gestures of recognition, became as integral a part of who they were as the air they shared with all life. Only with the supposed cultural enlightenment of the twentieth century did gays and lesbians attempt to forward that culture openly, hoping that their roots could be established in the sunshine at last.

'I'd better set you straight so you don't hurt Gaby. She's fallen in love with me. It has something to do with isolation; I was the first person she saw afterward, and she developed this fixation. I think she'll grow out of it because she's never been significantly homosexual before. Nor heterosexual, for that matter.'

'She covered it up,' he suggested.

'What year is this? Nineteen-fifty? You astonish me, Gene. You don't hide anything from those NASA tests. She had a homosexual affair, sure. I had one, and so did you. I read your dossier. You want me to tell you how old you were when it happened?'

'I was just a kid. The point is, I could tell about her when we made love. No reaction, you know? I'll bet it's not like that when you two make it.'

'We don't--' She stopped herself, wondering how she had been drawn in as far as she was.

She was holding back essentially because she was not homosexual, she was bisexual with a strong preference for the male sex, and felt she should not get involved with a woman who loved her unless she felt she could carry through beyond the first act of love.

Which had to qualify as the silliest thing she had ever heard. Words, words, just stupid words. Listen to your body, and listen to your heart.

Her body had no reservations left, and her heart had only one. She turned over and straddled Gaby. They began to kiss...

'I can't say I love you and be honest about it, because I'm not sure I'd know what it felt like with a woman... I can't say for sure that I love you.'

Gaby smiled.

'Life is full of disappointments.' She put her arms around Cirocco and pulled her down. "

Mother, with a capital M, becomes the dominant figure in the family. She may be playing around, too, but she's taking care of the kids; she's around most of the time. Thus, with father a lower-case figure, absent, weak, or indifferent, the children often become homosexual or ambisexual. The wonderland is also a fairyland.

'Some features of this time could have been predicted. Sexual permissiveness was one, although no one could have seen how far it would go. But then no one could have foreknown of the Panamorite sect, even if America has spawned lunatic-fringe cults as a frog spawns tadpoles. Yesterday's monomaniac is tomorrow's messiah, and so Sheley and his disciples survived through years of persecution and today their precepts are embedded in our culture.' "

'It's not that Chib rejects homosexual relations. Like most of his contemporaries, he's sexually ambivalent. I think that he and Omar Runic still blow each other occasionally. And why not? They love each other. But Chib rejects Luscus as a matter of principle. He won't be a whore to advance his career. Moreover, Chib makes a distinction which is deeply embedded in this society. He thinks that uncompulsive homosexuality is natural (whatever that means?) but that compulsive homosexuality is, to the use an old term, queer. Valid or not, the distinction is made.' "

"I really doubt whether any human culture could ever have sustained precisely this attitude toward sexual congress for long. I'm aware that free-love cults have sprung up from time to time and place to place, but the meaning of sex, the charge on it, must have been different. Among us there were always men and women, with all that that implies; and where the pockets of license were homosexual they were clearly separate from the mainstream. The oldest cultures we know about were horrified by incest. "

homosexual world 2990 Anthony, Piers. Phaze Doubt. New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons (1990); pg. 298. [Author's Note] " an amateur magazine, Fosfax. I was accused of doing a poor presentation of a lesbian, in the second Adept novel, Blue Adept. It must have been poor, because I had no lesbian character there, or in any of my novels. Apparently some readers assumed that a woman who hated men had to be a lesbian; I don't see it that way. Bu tin this novel I do have a lesbian, and any of that persuasion may now chastise me for doing it wrong. Certainly homosexuality is not one of my stronger subjects, but I felt that it wasn't fair to exclude a sizeable segment of the human population--about ten per cent--from representation in my fiction. Do I think that such folk are misguided, and that appropriate therapy will show them the error of their ways? No. No more than therapy would turn me gay... No, I don't exclude them from friendship, and yes, I wouldn't want my daughter to marry one. " [The author inexplicably repeats the old ten percent myth.]

"cause and origin of homosexuality had long ago been established as purely genetic in all by 3% of the cases... the 9 chromosomal complexes responsible had been identified, and could, in ine out of ten cases, be altered successfully in prebirth individuals.
