Transcript HughCrell's Gay Predictions For 1976 Gay prognosticators are known for the high degree of accuracy of their predictions. This is probably attributable to their heightened sensitivity to social attitudes and trends. My predictions for 1975 were without error. For example, I correctly foresaw that someone would be discharged from military service for homosexual conduct. I also knew in advance that a homosexual would be discovered in San Francisco. Uncanny, eh? After long and careful deliberation, I have prepared my predictions for 1976 which I am glad to share with you. 1. A lesbian will compete in the national women's invitational softball tournament in Memorial Park. Another will observe from the stands. 2. Sometime during the afternoon of June 12, a homosexual will appear at the intersection of Montrose and Westheimer. 3. A resident of Pasadena will conclude that she is gay after an agonizing self-appraisal. 4. Pokey Anderson will identify herself as a lesbian before a predominantly heterosexual group. 5. A homosexual will become a parent, but not apparent. Hugh Crell gays and the media The establishment press has never been friendly toward the gay community. On the contrary, they have been active agents in promoting fear and hatred of homosexuals. Take as an example the front page headline of the final edition of the Jan. 8, 1976, Houston Chronicle: "Homosexual Tells Police He Killed Three Men Here." That this account of murder was newsworthy certainly is not in question. But the emphasis on the sexuality of this alleged murderer perfectly demonstrates the Chronicle 's heterosexist policy toward crimes that have a sexual connotation. Recently, the Chronicle ran a story on the arrest of the mayor of Seabrook, Tx. for sexual abuse of children. Nowhere in their coverage did the paper allude to the mayor's heterosexuality. In the same vein, when a rapist's arrest is covered by the paper, have you seen the headline read, "Heterosexual Rapist Arrested." You have not, and you probably will not. The reason for this is clear. The Houston Chronicle and the Houston Post use the word "homosexuality" as a derogatory term that implies a causal factor in the crimes committed. This man or woman committed these acts because they are homosexual , i. e. queer, sick, deranged, etc. The fact that heterosexuals sometimes kill those with whom they have had sexual intercourse, besides raping women and occasionally abusing children (often their own) is never brought to the attention of the newspaper readers.
