I have been considering the acceptance and promotion of "transexualism" over at FE, and I happened to watch the movie "Infamous," which depicts Truman Capote's life at the time of the writing of In Cold Blood.
Capote, a famous American writer, was notoriously effeminate -- he was extremely so...
Much more than that. He was blatantly homosexual.
It caused me to consider how one should treat men who are extremely effeminate? I think we've all known of sissies from our youth who were very shocking in their behavior, their walk, their voices, and their interests. Some men are so effeminate that they seem to have a feminine build. As a child, and as depicted in the film which was set in the 1960s, I remember effeminate boys causing intense anxiety among both women and men.
Hmm that seems strange since the 60's had some of the biggest effeminate liberals and homosexual lovers around: the hippies.
Some men are so effeminate that it's extremely difficult for them to disguise it. What should they do? If they are celibate and not being brazen, how should one behave towards them?
Well again I don't agree with my grandfather on everything but I can thank the man for telling me and showing me how to be a real man in life and not a "sissy." I remember quite well back in my younger days he constantly critiqued me on everything I wasn't doing: not able to tie a tie, not able to do anything on my own, etc. and calling me out as a sissy if I ever showed emotion. Now I'm sure these days our effeminates would call such a thing "cruel behavior" by a grandfather towards his grandson but to me it was the perfect rearing in this world I needed to become the strong man I became today. It reflects the values of an older culture that would look in horror and disgust at today's boys (including our grown-up "men") running around whining and showing emotion. The man never hugged me (and I would never do such a thing to my boys either) but it's what he has done for me that has helped me out the most in this world: how to be a strong man who can survive life by manly strength and willpower.
I have a former coworker who's effeminate. I speak to him and treat him kindly, but I don't discuss romantic relationships with him or anything that might lead him to disclose anything -- I've also taken to praying for his conversion just as I pray for my own conversion.
Hmm well I am reminded that with the allowing of homosexuals into the priesthood because of the Vatican II ideal of "tolerance" it caused the most massive abuse the Church ever did: the sexual abuse of young altar boys and the covering up of it.
