Writer Of THAT Notorious Gay Culture ‘Take Down’ Takes On His Haters

by Rob Smith June 01, 2016

The self-described “gay, Jamaican, conservative Democrat” who penned a divisive takedown of gay culture is baaaaaaack, and he’s here to explain a bit more about his initial piece.

Honestly, we thought that with a title like Loveless, Narcissistic Sex Addicts: A Gay Man Critiques His Community, there wouldn’t be much more to say, but we guess we were wrong.

The Windy City Times caught up with DePaul University professor Jason Hill to discuss the backlash, his background, and, of course, those mean and nasty gays:

Hill told Windy City Times that the editors had changed his title and equally harsh subheads—one of which read, “We’re so lonely, we almost want AIDS”—but stood by what he wrote in the main text of his article. In an age of Grindr and Scruff, he said, gay men will be unable to find harmony in their relationships unless they can develop a stronger moral contract.

These are conclusions he came to because, of course, he’s an “ethicist by training”:

I’m a moral philosopher, an ethicist by training. I tend to look at things from an ethical standpoint. I thought I needed to write a piece that would hold those members, some members of the community guilty of these sorts of behaviors, accountable.

But I [also] wanted to talk about the culture itself, and what constitutes gay culture itself—the ethos, pathos, mores, norms and protocols under which the people that suffuse that culture under which people are socialized. There seemed to be something pretty skewed in many respects.

He also has the groundbreaking theory that apps like Grindr and Scruff foster sex addiction:

One, I think, is the way I think the culture fosters sex addiction, I think, through the proliferation of certain apps that I think are incompatible with the desires and aspirations of gay men who I think want a monogamous or sustained relationship. I thought there was a huge disconnect in the aspirations of those individuals who want a certain life for themselves, and have certain behaviors or habits that cultivate and foster it.

The two are diametrically opposed. One can’t have one’s cake and eat it as well. …If you are faced with a multiplicity of options, the impetus to get to know one person, to hone in on one person and now them intimately, and to build up a bond, is completely lost.

There’s plenty more self-righteous psychobabble where that comes from.

Feel free to take it all in.

The ick factor of a piece like this being penned specifically for a conservative outlet like The Federalist is pretty high.

Either way, it starts a conversation that should be had, but perhaps next time a less “highly trained” ethicist can break it down for the regular folk and be a bit less offensive while doing so.
