Where? MCCR, 1919 Decetur Come on by A Disturbed Peace Feeling guilty By Brian McNaught If I was a merchandising genius, I would market Irish Catholics as "guilt sitters." If people wanted to get rid of their guilt for the day, they would give us a call and, for a reasonable fee, we would feel guilty for them. It's normal for Irish Catholics to feel guilty. We seem to feel guilty about everything. Maybe it's in our genes or maybe we're the products of absent Fathers and domineering Sisters. Who knows? But we feel guilty about a lot, like the fact people are starving in Africa and we are not. In watching Roots and Holocaust, I accepted full responsibility. Homosexual Irish Catholics are perhaps even more guilt-prone than non-gay Irish Catholics, surely because we try so hard to be perfect. We seem to love to embrace the culpability for the world's inequalities. Some of our guilt is silly, such as feeling badly that our grandparents had to "walk six miles to school through 10 feet of snow," and we had car pools. And some of our guilt is not silly, such as that which we share with people of all races and religions who contribute to injustice. The difficulty is in separating the two. For instance, I feel guilty sometimes that I was not born female. Because I was a boy, I had a lot of encouragement and opportunities that women my age did not have. When I put myself in their place, I am enraged. Feeling guilty that I am a man, however, is silly. Thier is nothing wrong with being a man. Maleness is not a "sin." Butsexism is a "sin." Sexism is something that sexist men should feel guilty about. If gay men tell jokes about women or make "fish" comments, they should feel guilty. If gay men refuse to share power with women merely because they are women, they should feel guilty. If gay men contribute in any way to the inequalities ofthe sexes, I suggest they should feel guilty. Likewise, lesbians who discredit gay men merely because they are men should also feel guilty. I feel guilty, too, because I was not born black or brown or yellow. Because I was born white, I have had privileges people of color in the United States have never had. When I imagine myself as a Third World homosexual struggling not only with straights for my rights but with other homosexuals too, I am sickened. But feeling guilty for being white is silly. There is nothing wrong with being white. There is no "rightness" or "wrongness" to skin color. But there is a "wrong- ness" to racism and within the gay community it is most heinous. White gay women and men who permit gay bars to require additional pieces of identification from Third World homosexuals should feel guilty. White gay men and women who tell "nigger" jokes should feel guilty. White gay men and women who don't encourage the participation of the Third World homosexuals in their organizations and who do not share power with people of color, I suggest, ought to feel guilty about their racism. Likewise, Third World gay women and men who reject all white homosexuals merely because of their color should also feel guilty. Sometimes, when I am watching television or attending a lecture, I will close my ears so that I imagine what it would be like to have a hearing impairment. I have also closed my eyes and tried to walk down the street or around the house. Frequently, I feel guilty that I was born ablebodied. Especially when I imagine that I could easily lose my senses and limbs and realize how that would effect the responses of other people to me, I am horrified. But it is silly to feel guilty that I am not blind. Being without physical challenge is not culpable but it is culpable to restrict the access of disabled gay men and women to gay functions and gathering places. Gay organizations which, when planning functions, do not consider wheelchair access and do not provide signers for the deaf, should feel guilty. Gay men and women who tell "Helen Keller" jokes should be ashamed. Gay establishments which discourage the patronage of physically challenged people, except when safety is a legitimate issue, I encourage to examine their consciences. It is silly to feel guilty that I wasn't born poor but it's not if I deliberately contribute to the inequalities of class privilege. Liking people solely on the basis of their economic background is as offensive as hating people solely on the basis of from which part of the country they come. It is silly to feel guilty that I am not old but it isn't if I contribute to the alienation of elderly gay women and men. It is silly to feel guilty that I am not an alcoholic but it isn't if I am so insensitive that I have a party without providing non-alcoholic beverages. It is silly to feel guilty because I was not born a Jew but it isn't if I listen to "Jew jokes" without expressing my disgust. It is perfectly alright for me to be a young, ablebodied, white Irish Catholic gajr male from an upper middle class backgroung. It's not just OK, it's great because that is all I can be. What is not OK is for me to feel guilty about who or what I am and it is not OK for me to make my qualifications the standard for everybody else. I feel guilty that this column may sound a bit preachy, but I would have felt guiltier if I had allowed much more time to pass before I reminded myself and my friends aboutsomeoftheinjusticestowhich we contribute. And that guilt wouldn't have been silly. £ 198? BRIAN MCNAUGHT J
