Transcript ancient Mesopotamia as in modern Europe." This included homosexuality, both male and female. Impotence, nocturnal emissions, VD, and ejaculatio praecox is also attested by Babylonian literature. Already there were several positions of intercourse practiced by these peoples. ONE SURVIVING BIT OF WRITING TELLS US THAT TI PRIESTESSES PERMITTED ANAL INI COURSE: IT IS POSSIBLE THAT TEM PRIESTS DID ALSO. One surviving illustration on an ancient plaque shows a rear entry. Circumcision did not seem to play as significant a ritual or religious role with the Babylonians as it did with people of the Nile area, but it was hardly unknown. There survives a Meso- potamian stone phallus which antedates even Abraham and it is circumcised; so Moses was certainly not the first to introduce the custom as some Bible readers have often thought. In one of the earliest disputes over who is "most" worthy before God (see Gen. 4), Godhomor- ed the worship of the homosexual. (Dr. Paul Roberts has correctly shown that the word in the Jewish Septuagint where the KJV has de- - sire in Gen. 4:7 is the same word used in Gen. 3:16 where 'desire' is clearly sexual. The root of the same word is found again in Song of Solomon 7:10 where the connotation is again clearly sexual. It may be inferred that Abel has sexual desire toward his brother, as the KJV had sexual desire toward his brother, as the KJV rightly reads.) Since homosexuality is so ancient and ubiquitous, it becomes clear that neither religion nor punitive law has made much significant change in its prevalence, only in the visibility of its practice. Sooner or later everyone must come to recognize from thousands of years of known history that heterosexuality is the dominant sexual behavior in man, but also that homosexuality is equally natural. 'Natural' includes a wide spectrum of behaviors of which the dominant behavior is but a part of the whole. Terry from Tyler HOMOSEXUALITY 25 Questions & Answers The INSTITUTE FOR THE STUDY OF HUMAN RESOURCES has released the following: Magazine articles, books, news reporting, movies and public discussions of homosexuality are so plentiful today as to indicate a genuine public concern about the subject and a desire better to understand it. However, the layman has difficulty in finding simple, straightforward answers to many of his questions readily available in convenient form. To help fill this need the following pamphlet has been prepared by a panel of highly qualified social scientists and specialists, each of whom has studied homosexuality extensively and at least one of whom is himself homosexual. In addition to his study, each of the panelists has done much interviewing and counseling work with male and female homosexuals, gaining thereby a broad insight into the attitudes and behavior patterns of several thousand such persons. The aim of this publication is The aim of this publication is to replace misconceptions and fears about homosexuality with a better understanding of the subject. It is hoped that this will result in improved and more humane attitudes toward those men and women for whom homosexuality is their way of life and effect a better integration into society of such individuals, many of whom are worthwhile and useful people. Such a goal would seem to be preferable to the traditional practice of alienating them and increasing the numbers of individuals who are a burden upon society. 1. WHAT IS HOMOSEXUALITY? It is the condition of being sexually attracted and drawn to members of one's own sex. 2. WHO IS HOMOSEXUAL? The only basis for deciding whether one is or is not homosexual is a continuing erotic preference for partners of the same sex. 3. DOES A HOMOSEXUAL ACT MAKE ONE A HOMOSEXUAL? No. Many boys and girls during early childhood and adolescence have homosexual experiences without lasting effects. Also, under special circumstances, such as military service and personal life, homosexual behavior sometimes occurs on a temporary basis. 4. HOW MANY HOMOSEXUALS ARE THERE? No one really knows. However, several authorities have estimated that perhaps one out of every ten adults could be so classified. Therefore, the number would total many millions. 5. CAN HOMOSEXUALS BE EASILY IDENTIFIED? Contrary to popular belief most homosexual men and women are indistinguishable _rin appearance from other people. (Ll/L tfc#ila*-^ life, at all social and economic levels, and among all cultural groups. Homosexual tastes and personalities vary as widely as do heterosexual. Some male homosexuals are feminine in manner and appearance and some female homosexuals seem masculine. Tranvestites, those who prefer the clothing of the opposite sex, and transsexuals, those who feel they are trapped in the body of the wrong sex and therefore seek surgery, usually have a psychological makeup quite different from that of most homosexuals. 6. IS HOMOSEXUALITY UNNATURAL? From a scientific point of view it is not. It would seem to be one of the natural variations of human sexuality which some societies are more willing to accept than are others. Endocrinologist Harry Benjamin, M.D., has written, "Do we know what 'normal' means? I don'tknow I believe that we only know what is customary." 7. ARE HOMOSEXUALS MENTALLY ILL? No. To label homosexuality as a mental illness use as Che most accurate ilim'ty to be found in phy- le body it its most "citing and beautiful. .,,..
