Bøsserettighedernes historie er lidt brun i kanten

Fra Pat Dollard

In the SA, the Community of the Special’s Hellenic ideal of masculine homosexual supremacy and militarism was fully realized. “Theirs was a very masculine brand of homosexuality,” writes homosexualist historian Alfred Rowse, “they lived in a male world, without women, a world of camps and marching, rallies and sports. They had their own relaxations, and the Munich SA became notorious on account of them” (Rowse:214). The similarity of the SA to Freidlander and Brand’s dream of Hellenic revival is not coincidental. In Gay American History, Jonathan Katz writes that Roehm was a prominent member of the Society for Human Rights (SHR), an offshoot of the CS (J.Katz:632).

The “relaxations” to which Rowse refers were, of course, the homosexual activities (many of them pederastic) for which the SA and the CS were both famous. Hohne writes that Roehm “used the SA for ends other than the purely political…Peter Granninger, who had been one of Roehm’s partners…and was now given cover in the SA Intelligence Section. For a monthly salary of 200 marks he kept Roehm supplied with new friends, his main hunting ground being Geisela High School Munich; from this school he recruited no fewer than eleven boys, whom he first tried out and then took to Roehm” (Hohne:82).

Hitler’s “Gay” Roots

In 1945 a Jewish historian by the name of Samuel Igra published Germany’s National Vice, which called homosexuality the “poisoned stream” that ran through the heart of Nazism. (In the 1920s and 30s, homosexuality was known as “the German vice” across Europe because of the debaucheries of the Weimar period.) Igra, who escaped Germany in 1939, claims that Hitler “had been a male prostitute in Vienna at the time of his sojourn there, from 1907 to 1912, and that he practiced the same calling in Munich from 1912 to 1914″ (Igra:67). Desmond Seward, in Napoleon and Hitler, says Hitler is listed as a homosexual in Viennese police records (Seward:299). Lending credence to this is the fact, noted by Walter Langer, that during several of those years Hitler “chose to live in a Vienna flophouse known to be inhabited by many homosexuals” (Langer:192). Rector writes that, as a young man, Hitler was often called “der Schoen Adolf” (the handsome Adolf) and that later his looks “were also to some extent helpful in gaining big-money support from Ernst Ro[e]hm’s circle of wealthy gay friends” (Rector:52).

Langer, a psychiatrist, was commissioned by the Allies in 1943 to prepare a thorough psychological study of Hitler. His report, kept under wraps for 29 years, was published in book form in 1972 as The Mind of Adolf Hitler. Langer writes that Hitler was certainly a coprophile (a person who is sexually aroused by human excrement) and may have practiced homosexuality as an adult. He cites the testimony of Hermann Rauschning, a former Hitler confidante who “reports that he has met two boys who claimed that they were Hitler’s homosexual partners, but their testimony can hardly be taken at face value. More condemning,” adds Langer, “would be the remarks dropped by [Albert] Foerster, the Danzig gauleiter, in conversation with Rauschning. Even here, however, the remarks deal only with Hitler’s impotence as far as heterosexual relationships go, without actually implying that he indulges in homosexuality. It is probably true that Hitler calls Foerster ‘Bubi,’ which is a common nickname employed by homosexuals in addressing their partners. This alone is not adequate proof that he has actually indulged in homosexual practices with Foerster, who is known to be a homosexual” (Langer:178). However, writes Langer, “Even today, Hitler derives sexual pleasure from looking at men’s bodies and associating with homosexuals” (Langer:179). Too, Hitler’s greatest hero was Frederick the Great, a well-known homosexual (Garde:44).

Like Langer, Waite also hesitates to label Hitler a homosexual but cites substantial circumstantial evidence that he was.

It is true that Hitler was closely associated with Ernst Ro[e]hm and Rudolf Hess, two homosexuals who were among the very few people with whom he used the familiar du. But one cannot conclude that he therefore shared his friend’s sexual tastes. Still, during the months he was with Hess in Landsberg, their relationship must have become very close. When Hitler left the prison he fretted about his friend who languished there, and spoke of him tenderly, using Austrian diminutives: ‘Ach mein Rudy, mein Hesserl, isn’t it appalling to think that he’s still there.’ One of Hitler’s valets, Schneider, made no explicit statement about the relationship, but he did find it strange that whenever Hitler got a present he liked or drew an architectural sketch that particularly pleased him, he would run to Hess- who was known in homosexual circles as “Fraulein Anna”-as a little boy would run to his mother to show his prize to her…Finally there is the nonconclusive but interesting fact that one of Hitler’s prized possessions was a handwritten love letter which King Ludwig II had written to a manservant” (Waite, 1977:283f).

Hitler, if homosexual, was certainly not exclusively so. There are at least four women, including his own niece, with whom Hitler had sexual relationships, although these relationships were not normal. Both Waite and Langer suggest that his sexual encounters with women included expressions of his coprophilic perversion as well as other extremely degrading forms of masochism. It is interesting to note that all four women attempted suicide after becoming sexually involved with Hitler. Two succeeded (Langer:175f).

Det forklarer en del nazistisk æstetik.

  1. Jeg forstår ikke koblingen til bøsserettighedernes historie. Nazismen levede og døde, og bøsserettigheder (strengt talt; homo-rettigheder da de også gælder lesbiske) er blevet tilkæmpet efter og uafhængigt af nazismen. Artiklen prøver heller ikke at koble dens udsagn om nazisme og homoseksualitet sammen med ‘bøsserettighedernes historie’, så jeg kan ikke se hvorfor du gør det?

  2. Man skal ikke tage det så alvorligt, men artikelen kobler rent faktisk de to ting sammen.

    “The “gay rights” movement often portrays itself as an American phenomenon which arose from the civil rights movement of the 1950s. It is not uncommon to hear homosexualists (those both “gay” and “straight” who promote the legitimization of homosexuality) characterize “gay rights” as the natural third wave of civil rights activism (following blacks and women). In reality, however, Germany was the birthplace of “gay rights,” and its legacy in that nation is truly alarming.

    The “grandfather of gay rights” was a homosexual German lawyer named Karl Heinrich Ulrichs. Ulrichs had been molested at age 14 by his male riding instructor. Instead of attributing his adult homosexuality to the molestation, however, Ulrich devised in the 1860s what became known as the “third sex” theory of homosexuality. Ulrichs’ model holds that male homosexuals are actually female souls trapped within male bodies. The reverse phenomenon supposedly explains lesbianism. Since homosexuality was an innate condition, reasoned Ulrichs, homosexual behavior should be decriminalized. An early follower of Ulrichs coined the term “homosexual” in an open letter to the Prussian Minister of Justice in 1869.”

    Jeg kan godt se at mit uddrag er lidt misvisende i forhold til overskriften, men det var mest ment, som en appetitvækker ved at få Hitler i spil.

  4. Male impotence-was approved earlier this year in viagra prevalent for a variety of reasons but mainly because the subject is discussed more openly and men are now willing. Unlikely that a man will ever achieve a full long lasting natural. Dysfunction except when severe scarring has occurred from peyronies disease also to other organs with caution. Are more. http://fearlessknitting101.com - cialis ads size cialis
