VICE Reports: Pilgrims Were ‘Super Gay’

Published

on

Vice published an enlightening Thanksgiving piece Thursday about the alleged “super gay” nature of the colonial Pilgrims.

“Dig into the history and you’ll see plenty of early American colonizers were super gay—and their compatriots had views of it that were complicated, to say the least,” the piece was sub-headlined.

Those darn Pilgrims and their non-acceptance of the LGBTQIA community back in the 1600’s.

“According to historians and original records, the pilgrims founded an unusually queer society—one that wasn’t straight-up accepting of all that queerness, per se, but had a more complicated relationship with it than you might think,” the piece said. “In fact, as historians note, the name ‘Merrymount’ can also refer to a Latin phrase meaning ‘erect phallus’—quite a coincidence, given the men erected an 80-foot pole in the center of town.”

The publication did make sure to note that the Pilgrims’ understanding of human sexuality was not as polished ours in the current year, though.

Apparently there’s a guy at Harvard that studies all this, because what else with they do with that huge endowment?

“[Indigenous] gender roles—not all the time, but a considerable amount—were completely foreign to the Europeans. Every tribe had their own word for it, but there was a considerable amount of gender fluidity,” Professor of Practice in Media and Activism in Studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Michael Bronski told Vice. 

“[C]learly, they were f****** before they were married,” the noble academic added.

Not all of the Pilgrims were gay, Vice noted. There was still some of that 1600’s Puritan traditionalism going on in the colonies. Sodomy was apparently punishable by death back in those days. But that did not stop the more promiscuous of Pilgrims.

“My reading of this is that the Puritans were like, ‘people do this stuff, but it really shouldn’t be public,’” Bronski reportedly said. “‘We don’t want to go too far punishing them, because that would hurt the community.’ The most important thing is to keep the community stable.”

And there you have it – the true story of Thanksgiving. The Pilgrims were gay.

Baylor University Students Rallied in Favor of Removing Monument of the University’s Co-Founder

Even Texas isn’t safe from woke iconoclasm.

America’s culturally radical experiment will never end. 

On February 1, 2021, a number of Baylor University students kicked off a protest in front of the statue of Judge Robert Emmett Bledsoe Baylor, calling for its removal. According to the Baylor Lariat, the demonstration took place on the 176th anniversary of Baylor University’s  founding and the first day of Black History Month.

According to Dion J. Pierre of Campus Reform, the protesters were dressed in all-black and held Black Lives Matter signs as they surrounded the statue for a photograph.

 “The point of the picture is not to remove Judge Baylor as a whole,” student Sam Onilenla commented.  “It’s to remove Judge Baylor from campus. I don’t want to see it on campus because I know I’m not supposed to be here, according to him. Having him off campus is going to be the start of racial healing.”

Onilenla continued by observing that Baylor was a “slave owner…and Confederacy supporter” whose effigy has no place “right in front of Waco Hall.” 

“There’s nothing religious about killing slaves or having those ideas,” Onilenla declared.

The Baylor student wants the Baylor statue to be moved to the Mayborn Museum. 

The protest of this statue was motivated by an incident in January when the Baylor University Police Department was called in to address a noise complaint against black students in the library. 

One officer allegedly said, “this is not a basketball arena. This is a study area.” 

According to the Baylor Lariat, the students were offended by the officers’ statement, which led them to create a petition that ended up receiving over 3,000 signatures.

On February 16 to 17, the Baylor Board of Regents reviewed a report and heard presentations by the Commission on Historic Campus Representations. This commission was set up in 2020 to determine if any “statues, buildings, or other tangible tributes on the Waco campus reflect a racist past.” 

This entity will likely determine the fate of the Baylor monument.

Texas has not been exempt from the cultural radicalism that most of the nation has been subjected to during the last year.

In a BLP report, athletes at the University of Texas were considering the removal of “The Eyes of Texas” song because of its supposedly racial connotations.

Texas right-wingers need to get ready to defend their heritage. The fights ahead will be cultural in nature and very much outside the milquetoast economic subjects they generally talk about.
