    Mason Stokes, Author of "Saving Julian" Thursday, April 23, 9PM EST

    in Books

    Saving Julian is a darkly comic journey into the sad, strange world of ex-gay ministry.  The novel tells the story of Paul Drucker, a 58-year-old psychology professor and part-time preacher.  Author of Saving Our Boys from the Gay Menace, Paul is much in demand on the ex-gay lecture circuit, sharing the heterosexual gospel with those in need.  As he tells his audiences, “there’s no such thing as a gay man.  There are only men with unmet homoemotional love needs.  And this can be fixed.” But when Paul is caught with Julian, a 21-year-old “escort” he found online, he knows his world is about to fall apart. 


    At the age of twelve, Mason Stokes thought he was a New York Jewish intellectual.  Turns out he was just a gay southerner with a fondness for early-period Woody Allen.  But since both options would have gotten him beaten up, he made other choices, devoting himself to quiet study, courtly manners, and non-threatening outfits.

    This led naturally to an English major (the last refuge of scoundrels), where he found himself obsessed with Russian literature, an obsession he abandoned after failing, on repeated tries, to make it more than halfway through The Brothers Karamazov. 


    Mason teaches at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York.  Saving Julian is his first novel.

    #44: Rethinking Circumcision with Dr. Ronald Goldman

    in Moms and Family

    Have you ever thought about why we circumcise our little boys in this country? We are told it's healthier for the boy, that it protects them from future health problems.  But is that really true? What if there are actually health consequences and risks due to circumcision?  And what about the sexual impacts it has on him as a man?  On tonight's show we're talking to psychologist Dr. Ronald Goldman about the American tradition of male circucision and why you may want to re-think this procedure for your son.


    On this episode we discuss:


    * The history of circumcision and it's "anti-mastrubation" beginnings


    * The health risks of circumcision


    * The actual procedure of circumcision for a newborn boy


    * The sexual and psychological impacts on boys and men from circumcision


    * Why this practice of cutting off a functional part of a male's body continues to this day


    Find out more about Dr. Goldman and his work at the Circumcision Resource Center at http://circumcision.org/.

Snake Oil is Jim's monthly blog column.

Callers may call in toward the end of Jim’s show with questions or comments and some shows include 5 minute free mini navigational consultations (today's show will not get to live calls).
    Todays Show live Column read: Icky Sexuality


    “...From both a practical and spiritual perspective there have and will always be four primary variations for human sexual expression. The same categories also apply to most animal species. People are either heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, or asexual. For the most part sexual orientation is chosen at a Higher Self level before birth. Inevitably in our reincarnation cycles we will experience all of the variations in different lifetimes as part of our evolution and innate desire to experience the gifts and challenges each variation offers. Heterosexuality and bisexuality are the most common sexual expressions overall. 


    While bisexuality and homosexuality seems to be growing more commonplace in society, it only seems this way because it is becoming more socially acceptable to express oneself in either category...”


    People are often uncomfortable with things they cannot understand. Human sexuality itself is actually not a moral or life choice decision, it is part of our wirin. The struggle with gay marriage, new religious protection laws and many other complicated current issues has more to do with our tendency as human beings to lack empathy for those who are different.

    How Gay Marriage Can Undo Our Most Basic Liberties and Truths

    in Politics Conservative

    As I promised yesterday, I made the decision to do a special show today on this issue of gay marriage yet again.  I know, it's old hat for me, old hat for this show, old hat for some of you.  But I saw an article a couple of days ago that as I said, to me it's a most read for all Americans with what the Supreme Court is hearing arguments over right now.  I'll have that article on the Facebook page so you can read it.  But I wanted to discuss some of the finer points of it today, because to me it really hits on not only what has happened in Canada with the legalizing of gay marriage 10 years ago.  It hits on what is already beginning in the United States.  I'll try to reference how on the show today, beginning at 4:30 Eastern time and archived afterward.

    Closet is very deep for gay college basketball coaches

    in LGBT

    Fear. Depression. Anxiety. Thoughts of suicide. These are some of the emotions gleaned from closeted gay and lesbian coaches Outsports talked to during the men's Final Four in Indianapolis. Despite the progress society has made on gay issues, these coaches feel that their careers would be over if they ever came out publicly. So they hide or contemplate quitting the sport they love. One female coach said she knows of 50 closeted lesbian coaches. There are no openly gay male or female Division I coaches in the U.S.


    The podcast also interviews writer Erik Hall, who has profiled several openly gay athletes, his latest being a college cross country runner.
