The Great Mirror of Same-Sex Love - Prose - 20. Margaret Mead’s Definition of “Perversion”


Margaret Mead's Definition of "Perversion"


WASHINGTON — After the Nixon court horseshit decision on Virginia's [anti-gay] laws, all is not quite lost in D.C.

Margaret Mead, the anthropologist, told the Washington Press Club that “[Same-sex love] is perfectly good for some people. Extreme heterosexuality is a perversion.”

God bless her – she's long been my choice for the first woman president.

—Boyd McDonald, [i]







[i] “Margaret Mead Definition of ‘Perversion’” Boyd McDonald, reprinted in Meat. How Men Look, Act, Walk, Talk, Dress, Undress, Taste & Smell, Volume 1, San Francisco 1981, p. 111, under the title Heterosexuality Termed “Perversion”
