High Status People and Sex



1. Are women more attracted to Obama or McCain?

Most of the time women are more attracted to men with feminine traits such as tenderness, considerateness and kindness, as well as those with feminised faces. (Gender bending )

Obama or McCain? Who knows.

Except at the time in their menstrual cycles when they are most fertile, Women prefer non-macho men.

What was said on Corfu

Posted to Flickr as Metzes. Author Unai Guerra

Back in August, we had an interesting meze dinner at the Taverna A.

You probably know this place, which is in a small bay on the north coast of Corfu.

Eleni produced crispy courgettes, prawn saganaki, stifado and lots of other tasty things to go with the red wine.

We said our 'hellos' to Rupert, George and all the others. We thought we recognised Lord W. and Ben S.

As we supped our humus, an interesting question was asked.

"How come," asked Peter, "that planet Earth got all the good stuff?"

"What do you mean?" asked Elizabeth.

"Aluminium?" asked Mr D.

"What I mean," said Peter, "is why has the Earth got just the right amount of sulphur, phosphorous and so on to make living things?"

"And just the right amount of heat and light," said George.

"And the water," added Rupert, as he stuck his fork into some octopus like thing. "The Earth has water."

"And the other planets just don't have the right stuff," said Peter.

"It's as if there was some kind of intelligence involved," said Elizabeth.

"The really big question," said Mr P, "is how the chemicals became life?"

"There's a lot we don't know," said Andrew.

"Babies," said Elizabeth. "When do they suddenly become conscious? Maybe their consciousness exists outside their bodies."

"I've thought about that," said Mr D. "The Earth has been around for a few billion years. But homo erectus only appeared about one or two million years ago. So where was consciousness before men came along?"

PRESS AWARD 2008


Photo from: news.bbc.co.uk/.../html/5.stm

The Scotsman and Scotland on Sunday are both owned by the Johnston Press which has John Fry as its new chief executive (Telegraph)

We are awarding our 2008 press award to these two newspapers because they have consistently come up with world-class stories which certain other newspapers have missed.

1. The newspaper Scotland on Sunday reported 16/9/ 2001 that Osama bin Laden made his fortune in part by working with Jewish-Russian mafia operations in Qatar and Cyprus. (Cached)

2. 'It is time to put right the wrongs' - Scotland on Sunday

3. Lockerbie evidence was faked

4. HBOS takeover: Still time to save 'The Bank' - The Scotsman

"Unionist politicians have claimed an independent Scotland could not have afforded the £37 billion the UK Treasury has found for the banks... But the UK government does not have the money either and will borrow it from the world money markets in the form of a gilt auction. An independent Scotland could, arguably, have done the same."

Between the lines: Small countries looking best placed for recovery.

This article points out that Scotland would be better off being independent.

R L Stevenson and boys

Stevenson by John Singer Sargent

Philip Hensher, in the Spectator, reviewing 'Robert Louis Stevenson' by Claire Harman wrote:

"Most of his best books barely contain a woman at all; you can tell the effort the ones in Weir of Hermiston ... cost him; and most of the ones which are there are completely conventional and flat...

"Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde ... a thousand sinister touches ... Hyde smaller and younger than Jekyll... What is it really about? Homosexuality?

"...the question of Stevenson’s sexual relations with his wife; we know that they had decided not to have children."

Richard Mansfield in Jekyl and Hyde, 1895.

From the Review by Dr Noreen Doody in the Sunday Business Post: (http://archives.tcm.ie/businesspost/2005/02/13/story2256.asp )

"In The Strange Case of Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde...the darkness and homoerotic overtones in the book are associated by Harman with Freud's work on dreams and illicit desire.

"She offers some interesting reflections on possible ambivalence in Stevenson's own sexual orientation and quotes Andrew Lang as saying that the author 'possessed, more than any man I ever met, the power of making other men fall in love with him'".

Stevenson by Girolamo Nerli

A review in The Age points out that Stevenson's wife, Fanny, was 10 years older than Stevenson and had been previously married, bearing two children, Samuel and Isobel

Samuel apparently inspired Stevenson to write Treasure Island and he collaborated with Stevenson on The Wrecker and The Wrong Box.

Stevenson's contemporary, Andrew Lang, wrote that Stevenson ‘possessed, more than any man I ever met, the power of making other men fall in love with him’.

Many of Stevenson's closest male friends were homosexual.

Harman refers to Elaine Showalter's account of Jekyll and Hyde as a novella-without-women about "homosexual panic".



From The Economist (http://www.economist.com/printedition/displayStory.cfm?Story_ID=3598705):

"Treasure Island" began as a map he painted for his stepson one rainy day, followed within days by chapters serialised in a children's paper, Young Folk.


Stevenson on Samoa http://www.historycooperative.org/journals/cp/vol-05/no-02/salesa/index.shtml

Jane Stevenson, in the Observer, wrote:

http://books.guardian.co.uk/reviews/biography/0,6121,1396312,00.html :

"In his time, Stevenson was a writer's writer, who fascinated and infuriated friends such as Henry James by his stylistic brilliance, his charm and his waste of his talents on boys' books and thrillers...

"He has been most keenly appreciated by masters of English who have come to that language from another, notably Borges and Nabokov...

"(From Harman) we hear plenty about his oddly effeminate self-presentation and his attractiveness to homosexuals...

"Harman is particularly hard on Fanny Stevenson, who is described as fat, greying, coarse, loudmouthed and unbalanced... It's interesting that the sort of Americans who came to the Old World to hob-nob with literati thought Fanny the equivalent of trailer trash."

John Carey's review of Harman's book in the Sunday Times:

"Fanny answered Louis’s need to be mothered and protected."

Classic American Hero - Billy James Hargis

Billy James Hargis became very rich.

Who is the classic American hero?

The lovely Sarah Palin, or the 'gay' John Wayne, might be considered classic American heroes but the best candidate for the title is Billy James Hargis.

Billy James Hargis (1925 -2004) was was one of the founding fathers of the Christian Right and he liked boys.

In the 1950s and 1960s, his Christian Crusade ministry was broadcast on more than 500 radio stations and 250 television stations.

Hargis preached about the evils of sex education, the welfare state, Communism, liberalism, women's liberation and, of course, homosexuality.

Hargis loved Israel and preached in favour of Israel.

Hargis accused Martin Luther King Jr. of being a Communist-educated traitor.

Hargis was was one of the first fundamentalist Christian leaders to urge his followers to get involved in politics.

Hargis was a close friend of General Edwin Walker and he became a member of the John Birch Society.

In 1975 Harry Dean claimed he had been an undercover agent for the FBI. In 1962 he infiltrated the John Birch Society. He later reported that Walker and John Rousselot had hired two gunman, Eladio del Valle and Loran Hall, to kill President John F. Kennedy.

Hargis founded the 'Christian Crusade' in 1950, a "Christian weapon against Communism and its godless allies."

Hargis formed the American Christian College in 1971 in order to teach fundamentalist Christian ideas.

Hargis was not all that he seemed.

After leaving school in Texas, he attended the Ozark Bible College at Bentonville, Arkansas, but left before he could finish his course.

Perhaps, like so many Americans, he had little undertanding of the Sermon on the Mount, but knew a bit about the Old Testament.

David and Jonathan

According to The Telegraph, 2 December 2004 (Billy James Hargis):

"In 1974 Hargis had conducted a wedding for two of his students.

"On their wedding night, in an episode reminiscent of the scene in Cabaret when Sally Bowles and Brian Roberts admit to having had affairs with the bisexual Max, the bride and groom confessed to each other that neither was a virgin and discovered that Hargis had deflowered them both.

"Not long afterwards, three male members of the college choir, the All-American Kids, approached the college authorities alleging that they too had been sexually abused by Hargis over a period of three years.

"Hargis had allegedly justified his acts by citing the Old Testament friendship between David and Jonathan and, just in case his victims were minded to consult biblical texts that were sympathetic, threatened to 'blacklist' them for life if they talked.

When he was confronted by his colleagues, he allegedly admitted his guilt, blaming his behaviour on 'genes and chromosomes.'

Was Hargis working for the CIA or Mossad?

John Lennon



Albert Goldman’s 'The Lives Of John Lennon' (1988) claimed that John Lennon had a gay affair with The Beatles' manager, Brian Epstein, during a four-day holiday in Barcelona in April 1963. (Cached)

It also refers to a number of relationships which Lennon reportedly had with other men.

Goldman claims that Lennon visited underage boy prostitutes in Thailand.



When Epstein went into a London rehab centre, Lennon sent him flowers and the message, “You know I love you . . . I really mean that. John.”

The death of Epstein came just before the end of Lennon’s marriage to Cynthia.

Philip Norman has written 'John Lennon: The Life'.

According to Philip Norman, John Lennon wanted a gay relationship with Paul McCartney.

McCartney admits he often shared a bed with Lennon.

Philip Norman quotes Yoko as saying that people in the Apple office referred to McCartney as 'John’s princess'.

From Philip Norman we learn that John Lennon worshipped 'with a quasi-sexual intensity' the Beatles’ first bassist Stu Sutcliffe. (John Lennon: The Life by Philip Norman - The Sunday Times review ...)

Lennon wrote letters to Sutcliffe 'similar in length and tone, he claimed, to the ones he later sent Yoko'.
