Defending your 'power bottom' post as Jesus would

by Jeremy Hooper

Remember on Monday, when this site quite unabashedly took the piss out of the fact that a forty-something, heterosexual, Christian man would see some sort of a weird need to sit down at his computer and write a post containing nothing more than Urban Dictionary's definition of a "power bottom"? Well, said man now has this to say about this site and its writer:

Per the usual, AFTAH received the kill the messenger (or maybe mock the messenger) treatment from “gay” apologists like Jeremy Hooper, a New York City blogger. The poor homosexual activists, their minds reprobate and sold out to sexual sin, can’t understand our purpose: to expose the real (destructive and wicked) behaviors associated with homosexuality lifestyles (and yes, there are many different lifestyles, not one “gay lifestyle”).
The ‘Bottom’ Line: Behavior IS the Issue and Sodomy Is Disgusting [AFT]

Oh, Pete -- you're totally confused, big guy. It wasn't that I woke up with an aim to "kill" or even mock your message. What you saw on the screen was an organic display of genuine disbelief! Seriously -- it was as stunning as it was funny! And to be perfectly honest, if my pals at Queerty, Towleroad, or any other gay blog made a post out of nothing more than the definition of a "power bottom" (a term, btw, that applies mainly to one's enthusiasm, not any certain behavior), my eyebrows would also be raised by their thoroughly bizarre editorial decision! It's just that when it comes from a man who daily shuns my life and love, and who is bold enough to call my mind "reprobate" without knowing the first real thing about me, there is an extra layer of wack-a-doodliness!

Look brother, I know you don't like the homo-sex. Your life's work has made that perfectly clear. But there is a difference between "pro-family" activism and choosing to use an online dictionary to "expose" the fervor with which some gay dudes approach their passive penal positionings. You can act like it's perfectly normal all you want -- but my perfectly valid reaction might be to think that your defense makes you an apologist for a particularly odd version of anti-gay behavior!

Jeremy my buddy - I will leave that one to you. Sometimes it's just too sad to see Peter attempt to morph into a 21st century Paul Cameron.

You've really pegged him. (In the Webster's sense, not the Urban sense.)

You are probably the only one who pays any attention to the truth-challenged Pete. He is probably playing on that to bolster his "credibility" amongst the lying liar crowd.

Based on his obsession, I would disagree with the idea that he doesn't like the homo-sex.

I just emailed the fucker and told him I think he's suffering severe cognitive dysfunction. I linked my blog there. Hopefully he'll start some shit with me because if there's one thing I'm good for, it's being stubborn as all hell when it comes to religious bigots.

Oh Pete, it's so sad when people get desperate in a bad economy. Turning to bad porn is always the last gasp. Pete, seriously, I'm sure you have other skills. Move on. If Ted Haggard can do it, so can you!

I jut don't understand how Pete seems to think only gay people have like, terms for sexual stuff. Donkey punch? Shocker? Dirty Sanchez? Gross (in my opinion, anyhow) as most of thos eare, I know them as hetero-sexcapades more so than gay. Why doesn't Pete do an expose on hetero sex games while he's at it?

In fact, I just heard today about a hetero couple going to Home Depot, buying some kind of electric saw, attaching it to a dildo and using it as a sex toy...as you may have guessed, this experiment went horribly wrong, with the saw tearin through the dildo and inevitably the lady's hoo ha (she had to go to a hospital). Not sure if the couple was married or not. Buuuuut I don't see Pete going all investigative reporting on those people.

Hypocrisy at it's best. Straight people like out of the ordinary sex stuff, too. And, if practiced in a safe and healthy manner, I see absolutely no problem with what anyone does in the privacy of their own wherevers, gay or straight.

Also, as a sidenote, I like that he attached this little quip to his article today:

"I don’t know about his statistics but highly doubt his 38 percent figure for heterosexual anal sex."

Seriously? Perhaps TMI for you guys, but I've tried it with all 3 serious bfs I've had in my life. All of my college roommates tried it with their bfs as well. It's just like, that thing you try eventually, when you're straight.

Is he for real? He "highly doubts" straight people, men in particular, like anal sex? Uhhhh....

"I jut don't understand how Pete seems to think only gay people have like, terms for sexual stuff."

Stef: That's what makes this "power bottom" thing all the more bizarre. It's not even a behavior. It's not anything "shocking." It's just a descriptor for a particular commanding type of sex partner. I would be willing to bet that a majority of the world's gay-unfriendly citizens, regardless of their negatives views on gay sex itself, are quite aware of the fact that some men like to take charge in the bedroom!

Gee, maybe we should post a bunch of Urban Dictionary entries about lurid things heterosexual people do. Rainbow Parties would be one of the tamer ones.....

Pete needs to get over his obsession with the sex lives of LGBT people. It's bizarre and downright pathological.
