Prisons and Homosexuality
Food for thought:
Is there any truth to the premise that the majority of prison inmates are there because it's the only acceptable way to be gay?
No way you say. H'mm, let's look a bit closer. After all, the way you can tell what a person's intentions are is by looking at the results. No matter what someone says or believes, the results don't lie.
All results are produced through communication (verbal, nonverbal, psychic, and, both conscious and unconscious intentions). Just because you lie and say you aren't heading for jail doesn't mean that you aren't unconsciously setting up life to be sent to jail. Later when you are in jail you'll be able to see the truth.
One good test is to ask your friends, "Do you think I'm unconsciously heading for jail?" It's the same for someone who ends up in college or pregnant. "I had no idea when I was a freshman I was heading for college. Or, "I had no idea I was intending to get pregnant so I wouldn't have to study hard enough to go to college; but I see now that's what I was up to."
For example: Let's say that a person is gay but that they don't know it. Or, they suspect they are gay but resist it due to their fears of what others will think. So, they start acting extremely macho and cool (so everybody thinks just the opposite) while unconsciously they start misbehaving, thwarting others, etc., slowly doing more and more bad things, perfecting their "I'm tough act." Nobody suspects that they are covertly trying to get sent to jail where they know with absolute certainty they will be taken in as a "lifer's" punk. In this way no one suspects that they unconsciously behaved badly so that they could be gay in a way that no one would blame them.
Remember, it's only a thought. There's probably absolutely no truth to the premise. Kinda makes you wonder though, especially when you see someone misbehaving who otherwise looks intelligent. Maybe they know something you don't.
