Widespread sex addiction is worsening depression among gay men


Vox, of all places, has exposed the deep psychological problems that gay men are having from all too frequent casual sex. The article, written by a homosexual psychiatrist, claims that the "overuse" of the casual gay sex app "Grindr" is making gay men depressed, and that up to 50% of gay men suffer from clinical depression.

And I thought gay meant "happy".

Grindr is the "instant hookup" app for gay men. Some men are getting so much gay sex that it's blowing their minds.

When I open the Grindr app on my smartphone, I see there’s a 26-year-old man with tanned abs just 200 feet away. He’s called “looking4now,” and his profile explains that he wants sex at his place as soon as possible.

Scrolling down, I find 100 similar profiles within a one-mile radius of my apartment in Boston. I can filter them by body type, sexual position (top, bottom, or versatile), and HIV status.

....both Grindr and the research community have been silent on mental health. Yet since 2007, more gay men have died from suicide than from HIV. A staggering number of gay men suffer from depression, with some estimates as high as 50 percent.

A recent survey of 200,000 iPhone users by Time Well Spent, a nonprofit focused on the digital attention crisis, showed that 77 percent of Grindr users felt regret after using the app.

The users I interviewed told me that when they closed their phones and reflected on the shallow conversations and sexually explicit pictures they sent, they felt more depressed, more anxious, and even more isolated. Some experience overwhelming guilt following a sexual encounter in which no words are spoken.

Dr. Shane Kraus, the director of the behavioral addictions clinic at Bedford Veterans Hospital and an assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, says the most promising treatment for problematic Grindr use is likely talk therapy techniques like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).

The article attempts to portray homosexual men as being unhappy because of their use of Grindr. But could it be instead that their use of Grindr is a symptom, rather than a cause?

No matter how much the liberals in control of the media and our educational system want us to believe, the "gay" lifestyle is not a happy one. The sex act itself for men is unclean and high risk for AIDS, venereal diseases, and even incontinence. Homosexual men cannot have children on their own. Homosexuals are, on average, much more promiscuous than heterosexuals. As the article stated above, homosexuality is closely linked to depression and suicide.

There is a therapy for this, but one that liberals not only dislike but also want to ban. It's called "conversion therapy", and it's a voluntary choice among homosexuals who are unhappy with their lifestyles and want to become heterosexual again. But while liberals are perfectly happy to put 12 year olds on dangerous hormones to "change" their gender and/or allow them to abort their babies, they try as much as possible to discourage heterosexual therapy for homosexuals, banning it outright for teenagers and trying to discredit its use for adults.

Exit question: If you believe Vox when it says that Grindr is the problem, not homosexuality, what app or filter or plugin do you think homosexual men can put on their phones to cure their mental problems?

Surge of illegal border crossings corresponds with Trump's mass amnesty offer


There has been a surge of illegal aliens crossing our southern border. A caravan of over 1000 illegals from Central America are trying to enter the country on Easter alone. Breitbart, perhaps one of the strongest supporters of President Trump in the media, finds a direct correlation between the time Trump offered amnesty to 1.8 million illegal aliens and the increasing surge across the border.

Trump's surrender to Dems could cause impeachment, primary challenge


President Trump's decision to sign the spending bill which funds nearly all the Democrat's priorities but gives nothing for border security or reducing domestic spending has disheartened many of his supporters. Even his base on sites like Breitbart are turning against the President, in view of many of the critical comments there. Some people like Ann Coulter think that Trump is depressing his own base, which could reduce GOP turnout in the 2018 Congressional elections and hand the House of Representatives to the Democrats.

Feminist Prof. says husband's repeated requests for sex were violations

Johns Hopkins proudly employs convicted killers


The PBS NewsHour (at the 9 minute mark) last night had an inspiring story about a black church which helped ex-cons get jobs. The program focused on a very sympathetic obese black lady named Cally Thomas. She's soft-spoken, she dresses well, and she even dyed her hair blonde like Beyonce. We're still somewhat sympathetic even after we learned that Cally Thomas is a convicted killer because, as NewsHour assures us, the murder was "domestic violence related", so maybe she won't kill anyone else except boyfriends. But then we learn where Cally has a job; as a janitor at John Hopkins Hospital.
