Porno Pete LaBarbera upset over full frontal male nudity

LaBarbera
I haven't picked on Porno Pete LaBarbera for a while and I think he is feeling lonely.

On his Americans for Truth webpage, he is on a new crusade. Apparently he is upset that the Huffington Post ran a spotlight on male full frontal scenes in movies in its Gay Voices section.

Now in all honest, I was initially put off by the feature, but then I came to the understanding that there a is a good cultural discussion which can arise from it. For years, motion pictures had no problem showing female frontal nudity and now things seem to be balancing out. What gives? Are some male actors less afraid to show off their possible "shortcomings?" It's an interesting thing to talk about when it comes to gender and power.

However, LaBarbera refused to become so enlightened. To him, it's a part of the gay conspiracy:

The HuffPo video reminds us of one salient point in the national debate over homosexuality: “gay” guys like to see other men nude, and lesbians like to see women nude. Thus, the perversion of homosexuality turns seemingly “safe” places like gym showers, dorms and collective military showers into potential leering zones for those beset with aberrant sexual desires. (At many colleges, students are forbidden  under “nondiscrimination” codes from demanding a new roommate because they don’t want to room with a homosexual.) Thus the privacy of sexually normal people is violated.

I'm going to ignore that crack about "normal people."  I just want to know how many times did LaBarbera have to "look" at the video in question for him to fully register his "shock."

"sexually normal"? he must have a definite definition of what that is but I am willing to bet that full-frontal nudity gets about the same attention from absolutely every sexual person...normal (whatever that is) and otherwise. It quite obviously peeked his interest enough´to give it a gander.

He has lost it. Why does he think it's a gay agends thing?
Men and lesbians have been drooling over hot nude females for a long time. It's about time for the women and gay men to enjoy a nude male for a while.
I often wondered why it was OK to have a nude woman and not a nude man. Let the man be viewed as a piece of meat and see how they like it.

I'm sure LaBarbera then will be so pleased with his fellow gay haters at the Vatican -- for in the Sistine Chapel, where the next confab of cardinals will choose a pope -- there's some 250 naked men leering down, or 100 leering up (hard to tell,eh?) at all that male nakedness! Or, this is the sort of man who would take a sledgehammer to Michaelangelo's "David"

Oh yah, M.A. was gay, so maybe that's it. I guess the ceiling has got to go!

TO BE HONEST he is probably a closet homosexual himself and is denying it by overreacting about trivial things such as this. I swear...

so a whole segment of the population has to be treated as second class citizens, just because pete doesn't want anyone to "leer" at his weewee.. please labarbera grow up...

As a lesbian I enjoy looking at named men, Im going to guess that in Porno Petes world, that must mean im secretly straight.I also must admit despite being in so called "leering zones" I have yet to leer at any of the women I share a shower with at the gym.

And once again Peter pushes the "all gay people (or at leas the men) are nothing but slathering sexual predators" narrative.
