Advent Calendar 20 December 2014: Du & Ich 9, 1979 – paragraph 175
Du & Ich issue 9, 1979, was a theme issue about the 10th anniversary of the abolition of paragraph 175, the Nazi law that forbid homosexual relations. The magazine published a spread with reactions from the public, as reflected in reader letters to mainstream media in 1969 (click to enlarge):
Roswitha R. in Kaiserslautern writes:
“For me as a mother, these people are criminals – no matter how moral or respectable they are. I demand for the protection of my son: Quickly do away with (lit. ‘make the process short with’) these misfits of the human society!!!”
I think the gays who do everything to fit in and who think that not as “moral” or “respectable” gays destroy for ALL OF US should do a close reading of Mrs Roswitha R’s letter, since it is evident that they will be hated by Roswitha and her likes no matter how hard they try.
In general, the fear that homosexuals threaten to seduce society’s offspring seems to be very common. Today, you can’t utter such an accusation against homosexuals without being accused of being a homophobe. That’s why we invented the so called “pedophiles”, (by which we today mean a male person attracted to another male person under the age of 27), where straight and gays alike can compete in fearing the most.
