This Delightfully Offensive Clip From A 1950s Antigay Documentary Is A Must-Watch

by Dan Tracer March 14, 2016

The bitchy narrator of a recently-recirculated, stunning 1950s documentary clip on homosexuality has a few things to say about lesbianism:

“What are the deep-rooted emotions that remove them completely from the company of men, yet at the same time cause them to emulate the masculine appearance, to such pathetic results? Even though these emotions are covered up by a blasé attitude, one is still aware of their underlying sadness.”

Harsh! Perhaps he never considered whether that “underlying sadness” might have been caused by people telling lesbians that they’re pathetic.

Just a thought.

And if you thought that was bad, just wait until you hear his thoughts on gay men, or as he so disdainfully refers to the men on screen — “Them” :

“But while literature and tradition condone the weakness of woman, man receives only the heavy weight of ridicule.”

Watch below, and feel extra grateful for all the pioneering queer people who fought on our and future generations’ behalf:

What about today will people look back on in 60 years and think “Thank God things have changed”?
