Coburn Chief Of Staff: All Porno Is Gay Porno

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Here is Sen. Tom Coburn’s chief of staff, Michael Schwartz, at this weekend’s Values Voters Summit, talking about pornography. He has a number of interesting thoughts on the subject. Did you know that all porno is GAY porno? It is, seriously.

The audio is quiet and not really worth listening to, so just read:

“Pornography is a blight,” Schwartz told an audience in a crowded room of the Omni Shoreham hotel. “It is a disaster. It is one of those silent diseases in our society that we haven’t been able to overcome very well. Now, I may be getting politically incorrect here. And it’s been a few years, but not that many, since I was closely associated with pre-adolescent boys, boys around 10 years of age…”

GO ON?

“But it is my observation that boys of that age have less tolerance for homosexuality than just about any other class of people. They speak badly about homosexuality. And that’s because they don’t want to be that way. They don’t want to fall into it.”

Schwartz told the crowd about Jim Johnson, a friend of his who turned an old hotel into a hospice for gay men dying of AIDS. “One of the things he said to me,” said Schwartz, “that I think is an astonishingly insightful remark… he said ‘All pornography is homosexual pornography, because all pornography turns your sexual drive inwards.”

There were murmurs and gasps from the crowd. “Now, think about that,” said Schwartz. “And if you tell an 11-year-old boy about that, do you think he’s going to want to get a copy of Playboy? I’m pretty sure he’ll lose interest. That’s the last thing he wants! You know, that’s a good comment, it’s a good point, and it’s a good thing to teach young people.”

This: “And if you tell an 11-year-old boy about that, do you think he’s going to want to get a copy of Playboy? I’m pretty sure he’ll lose interest. That’s the last thing he wants!”

HAHAHAHAHAHAH.

“Hey, Junior, if you read that Playboy, then you’re a FAG.”

    By ten they are already reading Playgirl. His information is sadly outdated.

    I’m pretty sure sticking your man-meat into a porn starlet is not gay

  • Joshua Norton

    Did you know that all porno is GAY porno?

    Well, all HIS porno is, anyway.

    Mikey’s still feeling pretty bad about spanking it to a Tiger Beat Magazine at the age of 45.

  • Way Cool Larry

    Wow, after all those years I must be totally GAY by now. I had no idea. Can’t wait to tell my wife!

  • Mull_Man

    So porn must lead to fondness for musicals and Judy Garland. This explains a great deal – thanks republican thought leader!

  • Way Cool Larry

    Just wondering… does not being able to control one’s sexual desires automatically make one become a conservative? I think that might explain a lot, especially about their obsession with controlling sex.

  • Joshua Norton

    Repubelicker “Family Values” Freaks have a bigger stash of gay porn than all the gay guys in the USA combined.

    How about squish porn, that the NYT was gracious enough to introduce to me Saturday? Does it turn your sex drive “inwards”?

    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/19/us/19scotus.html?_r=1&scp=2&sq=dog%20fighting&st=cse

    Thanks NYT! And also for telling me dog fighting is legal in Japan! I feel better about Hiroshima and Nagasaki now!

  • jaba the slut

    So…….then what does the gay porn make you turn into?
    It is so difficult to figure this voo-doo shit out.

  • yargisbargis

    My son is turning 11 soon, so thanks Mr. Schwartz, I’ll be sure to tell him not to turn his sexual drive inward but spread that sperm around!

  • TGY

    He’s right, you know. Put down that goddamned Playboy mag and go buy a hooker, for the love of Plastic Jesus.

    Also, “They don’t want to fall into it.”? So homosexuality is some kind of puddle?

  • norbizness

    At least the “well, at least Coburn might have smart people working for him” theory has been blown out of the water. P.S. Blown Out of the Water is a great gay porn re-imagining of the movie Splash.

  • smitallica

    I’m a bit confused. So watching Tory Lane suck off a black guy whose dick is as long as my car is actually directed at me? So that means I’m the one packing a car-length black schlong? Ok, I need to diagram this…

  • Hed007

    Well, I do have a “man’s hand” touching me when I see the porno. Maybe he has a point.

    Going blind too.

  • drpangloss

    Wait so wanking is homosexuality too? Guess I’m gayer than Liberachi. This guy is a Singularity of Stupid so dense no rational thought can escape.

  • JMP

    Of course an 11-year-old isn’t going to want a copy of Playboy; they all have access to the internet nowdays and know how to get to the actual, hardcore porn instead. That’s why the porn mags are dying just like the newspapers.

  • OReillysVibrator

    “See, I realized that sexually-appealing images would turn my sexual drive inwards. The way to avoid this is to surround yourself with things you find sexually repellent. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why I was caught with all that male pornography on my computer.”

  • Manos: Hands of Fate

    Why do we just expand this reasoning to every other kind of negative human behavior.

    Michael Schwartz went on to explain that his views reflect his own experience. “In college, I happened to walk in on my roomates watching ‘The Girls of Mount Holio’ featuring a Mr. Rod Hardstone. After no more than five minutes seeing Mr. Hardstone in action, I found myself having very, VERY, icky thoughts about Roddy…I mean Mr. Hardstone.”

    does being a guy and only having sex with women make me a lesbian?

    i guess i am gay.
    thanks for the increased self awareness, schwartzie.

  • RoscoePColtraine

    Can we ratchet up the masturbation-guilt, while we’re at it? We’ve been looking for a way to stop boys from doing that. Homosexual / Autosexual…young’uns won’t know there’s a difference. Too bad it’ll only be the churchy kids developing angst and deep psychosis. The heathens will figure, “this means I’m gay? So be it.”

  • Manos: Hands of Fate

    It should be noted that Schwartz was speaking on a panel titled “THE NEW MASCULINITY” which sounds like the gayest workshop ever.

  • AnnieGetYourFun

    I’m going to go out on a limb and say that a 10 year-old boy will speak negatively about heterosexuality, too. In fact, if I recall my male classmates at that age, the only thing that interested them was poop.

    Not that anything has likely changed in the 22+ years since then.

  • Extemporanus

    The answer is: I would be Perez Hilton.

  • Count Spatula

    Hey Michael Schwartz…. wanna see my inward-facing sexual drive?

  • Jim Demintia

    Yeah, just like when 200 years of telling boys it will make you go blind, insane, and grow hair on your palms really put a stop to masturbation.

  • Rascalcat

    Let’s see now, I just saw a study that says the red states lead the nation in porn consumption, not to mention teen pregnancies and STD’s, so if all porn is gay and the red states lead the nation in porn consumption, doesn’t that make them all gay?

    Not that there is anything wrong with that. :-)

  • oldguy

    Give the guy some slack; he’s been trying to have conversations about the gayness with 10-year-old boys he’s been associated with for years and they speak badly about it. They react with intolerance. This is a very sad story.

  • Airborne Toxic Event

    They hate porn because they’re communists.

  • RoscoePColtraine

  • AbstinenceOnly Ed

    [re=415460]TGY[/re]: Yes, a puddle of Santorum

    Homosexuality is not something you “fall into” unless you are /drumLOL/ GAY. I grew up in San Francisco, drove past the “Polk Gulch Saloon” every morning and live near the Castro. I have yet to “fall” into a puddle of cock. You don’t “fall” into it unless you want to, unless it’s who you are, deep down, but are just to repressed to admit it, Mr. Schwartz.

    What happens if a husband and wife watch porn together while having normal heterosexual sex? Just cold doin’it all monogamous and procreative style.

    That’d be pretty fucked up, right?

    Also, the cat might be watching from down the hall.

    Dr. Calvin Beisner, National Spokesman, Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation

    THE NEW MASCULINITY – Dr. Pat Fagan, Senior Fellow and Director, Center for Family and Religion, FRC
    Feminism has wreaked havoc on marriage, women, children and men. It is time to redress the disorder it has wrought and that must start with getting the principles and ideals for a new “masculinism” right. Such a “masculinism” will have its dovetailing counterpart in a new “feminism” for they mutually define each other and, in nature, are meant to be complementary.

  • ChernobylSoup v2

    Cool. One more way to justify porn to my wife. “Honey, I swear it’ll make me more interested in redecorating the house.”

  • Prommie

    I’m releived that this is finally being put out there. Come on, this guy is right, he is just speaking the truth. The logic is simply irrefutable. If you like to play with cock, your gay. It doesn’t matter whether its your own cock, or someone else’s cock, if you play with cock, you are gay. Yup, the hard truth is that your own dick is a gateway cock to other cocks.

  • swayzeland

    [re=415494]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: 10 year old boys: Republican think tank par excellence. They like making bomb noises. They like playing with toy guns. They think ketchup is a vegetable. They can’t respond to an argument with anything smart, so they just yell out.

  • lumpenprole

    All porn is gay porn if you’re a family values Republican.

    In fact, all toilet paper is also gay porn. Just ask Larry Craig.

  • ph7

  • sezme

    “But it is my observation that boys of that age have less tolerance for homosexuality than just about any other class of people.”

    I imagine he’s speaking from personal experience of his close associations with young boys, and the fact that they definitely did not want to suck his cock. But what a brilliant idea! Tell them they’ll become gay if they look at pornography, come back in a year, tell them that they are now gay (because really what non-Amish boy hasn’t looked at pornography by age 12) and therefore, get busy with the sucking.

  • PrairiePossum

    ‘All pornography is homosexual pornography, because all pornography turns your sexual drive inwards.”

    Yeah boys, Schwartz doesn’t want you to turn your sexuality inward. Instead you should let your inner freak free and fuck your sister, a goat, or a tranny hooker, like Schwartz daddy taught him.

    I’m not the world’s biggest empiricist (see: nom de plume) but having spent a large amount of quality time with my own vag, i can say with confidence that it has not made me want someone else’s.

    Looking at porn only turns you gay if you do it in a men’s restroom in the Minnesota airport while adopting a wide stance. Even then, the causation is a little hazy.

    You should have seen the litter of Value Voters attendees who careened over to Good Guys, Camelot, Archibald’s and the Palace Friday night and Saturday night–they loaded up on whiskey, bourbon and beer, tipped the dancers, paid for “private dances,” got into fights, four of them got arrested for disorderly conduct, and a whole crew of them went to some diner about 3 a.m. Sunday and ordered dozens of early-morning breakfasts, some of them still with dancers from the clubs. Then there was something about a late-night, after-hours party at some townhouse on C Street on Capitol Hill, and that party apparently went on until 5 a.m.!! There was some rumbling about a late-night, or early morning, run to a nearby 7-11 for certain health products, Dorito’s, liters of Diet Cokes, and several boxes of Slim Jims.

  • TVarmy

    It’s like homeopathy. You expose people to materials meant to titillate one sexuality, and it will turn them into the polar opposite. Thus, we need to start subsidizing gay porn and showing it on TV 24/7, which will do the reverse of turning sexuality inwards. This senator may well have cured the gay!
