Evaluating Michael Swift’s 1987 “Gay Manifesto”

front mel white.jpg

If it is not evident that homosexuality (and now LGBTQIAP+) is a movement with goals and is even a worldview then, please emerge from under the ginormous rock under which you have been living.

But no one has to rely on outside observers to come to such conclusions since those within the movement are very open about it.

Dylan Pontiff admits public library Drag Queen Story Hour is “the grooming of the next generation. We are trying to groom the next generation.”

Sason Bear Bergman stated wrote an article titled “I Have Come to Indoctrinate Your Children Into My LGBTQ Agenda (And I’m Not a Bit Sorry)” wherein it is admitted “I am here to tell you: All that time I said I wasn’t indoctrinating anyone with my beliefs about gay and lesbian and bi and trans and queer people? That was a lie” so that children can become “like us” despite if that “goes against the way you have interpreted the teachings of your religion.”

Daniel Villarreal write an article titled, “Can We Please Just Start Admitting That We Do Actually Want to Indoctrinate Kids?” wherein it is stated, “Why would we push anti-bullying programs or social studies classes that teach kids about the historical contributions of famous queers unless we wanted to deliberately educate children to accept queer sexuality as normal?” and “We want educators to teach future generations of children to accept queer sexuality. In fact, our very future depends on it. Recruiting children? You bet we are.”

And we come to our focus with Michael Swift’s 1987 “Gay Manifesto” the preface of which notes, “This essay is an outré, madness, a tragic, cruel fantasy, an eruption of inner rage, on how the oppressed desperately dream of being the oppressor.”
Well, that was 31 years ago (as of when I am posting this which is Dec 2018) so let us review his manifesto and see if fantasy has become reality.

He actually begins with:

“We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms, in your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all male clubs, in your houses of Congress, wherever men are with men together.”

Well, this has become so every day that well, it is every day: from George Michael in men’s bathrooms to the Jerry Sandusky Penn State scandal to Barney Frank having a gay brothel being run in his apartment and so very many other examples—consider this section: check, check, check.


“Your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us.”

This has resulted in our sons and daughter actually virtually no longer being allowed to be called by the gender binary terms “sons” or “daughters.” This is not only a fantasy but an art of war style tactic that combines socio-politics, culture and chemicals. For example, George Dvorsky and James Hughes noted:

“Efforts to treat female depression and male aggression, autism and ADD would give us ways to make the brain more androgynous.
Francis Fukuyama lamented these trends, the “masculinizing” of depressive women’s moods by antidepressants, and the “feminizing” of ADD boys with stimulant medications, in Our Posthuman Future, asserting that they were the result of pressure to conform to an “androgynous median personality” in American society” (“Postgenderism: Beyond the Gender Binary,” Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies, IEET Monograph Series-03, March 2008).

Asked for examples of chemical employed towards such ends, Hughes stated, “Pseudo-estrongens and endocrine disruptors, specifically thalates from plastics.”
Note that they speak of ways “to make” the brain more androgynous and how many children are on hardcore pharmaceuticals which flood the bodies of girls with testosterone and the bodies of boys with estrogen: no wonder they are confused and their bodies are blob-like and somewhat amorphous in terms of gender.


“Women, you cry for freedom. You say you are no longer satisfied with men; they make you unhappy. We, connoisseurs of the masculine face, the masculine physique, shall take your men from you then. We will amuse them; we will instruct them; we will embrace them when they weep. Women, you say you wish to live with each other instead of with men. Then go and be with each other. We shall give your men pleasures they have never known because we are foremost men too, and only one man knows how to truly please another man; only one man can understand the depth and feeling, the mind and body of another man.”

Well, this truly is pure fantasy. Not the fact that man-stealing is not possible but that only men know how to truly pleasure men. FYI: the overwhelming majority of all humans who have ever existed are unaware of that and some of use, yes it is true, discuss such things with our opposite gender spouses so that we can know how to better please each other.


“All laws banning homosexual activity will be revoked. Instead, legislation shall be passed which engenders love between men.”

Need I comment: such is the case and along with it we are also seeing laws banning bestiality revoked.


“All homosexuals must stand together as brothers; we must be united artistically, philosophically, socially, politically and financially. We will triumph only when we present a common face to the vicious heterosexual enemy.”

All of any groups has never banded together but the astonishing thing is that even non-homosexuals take on a homosexual worldview and attack those who disagree with homosexuality even if they disagree agreeably. The art of war aspect is clear in the reference to “artistically, philosophically, socially, politically and financially.” Also, note the us versus them victimhood mentality, “the vicious heterosexual enemy.”


“If you dare to cry faggot, fairy, queer, at us, we will stab you in your cowardly hearts and defile your dead, puny bodies.”

Well, what this has resulted in is not stabbings but new-speak whereby making such statements can cost you your reputation, your job, your carrier, your business, your ability to use social networking sites, etc., etc., etc. And yet, indicative of our culture de jour, Swift refers to “hetero swine” which is viewed a-okay non-hate speech.

“We shall write poems of the love between men; we shall stage plays in which man openly caresses man; we shall make films about the love between heroic men which will replace the cheap, superficial, sentimental, insipid, juvenile, heterosexual infatuations presently dominating your cinema screens. We shall sculpt statues of beautiful young men, of bold athletes which will be placed in your parks, your squares, your plazas. The museums of the world will be filled only with paintings of graceful, naked lads. Our writers and artists will make love between men fashionable and de rigueur, and we will succeed because we are adept at setting styles. We will eliminate heterosexual liaisons through usage of the devices of wit and ridicule, devices which we are skilled in employing.”

Well, the bit about statues and museums is very old non-news. The part about other forms of “art” has also been with us for a long time and even more so now with homosexuals being grossly overrepresented in media (and in a 99.9% positive manner at that).


“We will unmask the powerful homosexuals who masquerade as heterosexuals. You will be shocked and frightened when you find that your presidents and their sons, your industrialists, your senators, your mayors, your generals, your athletes, your film stars, your television personalities, your civic leaders, your priests are not the safe, familiar, bourgeois, heterosexual figures you assumed them to be. We are everywhere; we have infiltrated your ranks. Be careful when you speak of homosexuals because we are always among you; we may be sitting across the desk from you; we may be sleeping in the same bed with you.”

This is a simple statement about coming out of the closet—along with which, now a days, comes special protections and rights under neo-laws.


“There will be no compromises. We are not middle-class weaklings. Highly intelligent, we are the natural aristocrats of the human race, and steely-minded aristocrats never settle for less. Those who oppose us will be exiled. We shall raise vast private armies, as Mishima did, to defeat you. We shall conquer the world because warriors inspired by and banded together by homosexual love and honor are invincible as were the ancient Greek soldiers.”

A well oiled machine has certainly been constructed consisting of homosexuals, in fact all LGBTQIAP+ personages, as well as their hetero supporters who certainly act in this tyrannical manner. However, while some ancient Greek soldiers were of that persuasion: they did not conquer in the name of a chosen lifestyle that guarantees extinction.

“The family unit-spawning ground of lies, betrayals, mediocrity, hypocrisy and violence—will be abolished. The family unit, which only dampens imagination and curbs free will, must be eliminated. Perfect boys will be conceived and grown in the genetic laboratory. They will be bonded together in communal setting, under the control and instruction of homosexual savants.”

Since he views disagreement with acceptance and celebration of homosexuality as “lies” then all such families will go by the wayside: as many most certainly have (including many broken up by the doings of heteros). This is traditionally why tyrannies have attacked families since families are basically micro-governments within macro-governments and the macro will not tolerate the power of the micro. One can only imagine what is meant by “Perfect boys” but such gene editing is either here now or soon will be.


“All churches who condemn us will be closed. Our only gods are handsome young men. We adhere to a cult of beauty, moral and esthetic. All that is ugly and vulgar and banal will be annihilated. Since we are alienated from middle-class heterosexual conventions, we are free to live our lives according to the dictates of the pure imagination. For us too much is not enough.”

Churches are currently under attack no so much by being closed but from being corrupted form the inside by homosexual activists who change theology in order to follow cultural trends de jour. As for “Our only gods are handsome young men…a cult of beauty…and esthetic” well, male temple prostitution has been around for a very, very long time. Note the reference to “moral” and what that means within the context of being “free to live our lives according to the dictates of the pure imagination” particularly when spike with “too much is not enough”—absolute freedom corrupts absolutely. Also, he appeals to some styled (and clearly fantasy) absolute homosexual esthetic whereby to annihilate that which he/they consider “ugly and vulgar and banal.” Since he sees himself as “alienated from middle-class heterosexual conventions” then he sees himself being free from any and traditional (and thus, beneficial) ethos.

“The exquisite society to emerge will be governed by an elite comprised of gay poets. One of the major requirements for a position of power in the new society of homoeroticism will be indulgence in the Greek passion. Any man contaminated with heterosexual lust will be automatically barred from a position of influence. All males who insist on remaining stupidly heterosexual will be tried in homosexual courts of justice and will become invisible men.”

He forsees a new world homosexual order and in essence, we are already there under the more all-encompassing rubric of the LGBTQIAP+ worldview lifestyle(s)—including the religion of sex.

“We shall rewrite history, history filled and debased with your heterosexual lies and distortions. We shall portray the homosexuality of the great leaders and thinkers who have shaped the world. We will demonstrate that homosexuality and intelligence and imagination are inextricably linked, and that homosexuality is a requirement for true nobility, true beauty in a man.”

Indeed, they have not only rewritten history (such as George Washington in drag) but have turned history classes into classes about homosexual activism—as well as classes that were formerly about literature, etc. It is undeniable that some homosexuals are intelligence and imaginative and that both may be inextricably linked but who would have ever denied that? But that “homosexuality is a requirement for true nobility, true beauty in a man” is mere delusion, of course.

“We shall be victorious because we are fueled with the ferocious bitterness of the oppressed who have been forced to play seemingly bit parts in your dumb, heterosexual shows throughout the ages. We too are capable of firing guns and manning the barricades of the ultimate revolution.”

Well, we certainly live in an era and culture where purposeful dumbing down has led to a culture base on feelings and so being ferocious is par for the course.

The last line of the manifesto is:

“Tremble, hetero swine, when we appear before you without our masks.”

I cannot help but empathize with Swift’s frustration.
I also cannot help but note that—as is that case with any group—homosexuals’ worse enemies have been homosexuals.
Also, I cannot help but note that such an endeavor denotes a deconstruction of reality—which Swift elucidates quite clearly—and that this fight against objective and absolute reality is what is actually, au fond, causing Swift, et al., the ultimate frustration.
