A fact that the Main Stream Media hid (and quite well) during the Prop 8 battle is the fact that up to 75% of Gay males in a “committed relationship” or a “marriage” accept their partner having open sexual relations with another male.
It seems a little incredulous, so let me break it down so that we are all on the same page.
Robert and Gary are married. Or deeply committed to each other. They are “partners.”
It’s OK with Robert if Gary goes out and has sex with Fred. And Gary thinks its OK if Robert has a sexual relationship with Martin.
You don’t believe me? Ask David Benkof over at the Jerusalem Post. He wrote a column about it. Here’s the highlights:
“…many male couples, including those in “marriages,” have arrangements with each other that allow for mutually agreed upon infidelity under certain circumstances…”
“…many gay couples are quite open about their mutually approved “adultery.”…”
“…Even gays and lesbians in monogamous relationships tend to see nothing wrong with consensual adultery, even when a couple has children. …”
The entire article is here. Do you need more? Perhaps David Nimmons is a big enough name for you. You know, the founder of Manifest Love and a Gay Leader in New York.
In his book, The Soul Beneath the Skin, David cites numerous studies which document approximately 75% of Gay Men in a “committed relationship” are not monogamous. They go out and have sex with other men. And they both accept that. Even when they have children in their “family.”
Remember Bob and Gary? And Fred? And Martin?
That’s another reason why it’s Gay Marriage Gay Lifestyle is not OK.
I’d welcome your thoughts if they are on topic. And if you want to say, “No, that’s not true,” then do some research first, perhaps contact David Nimmons (he’s Gay and will tell you the truth) or David Benkof (he got hate mail from Gays when he suggested that they try monogamy…and he is bi-sexual)
Stay tuned, much more to come.
