254: Gay Pride & Prejudice

by Philosophy Talk

Does the uproar over gay people and gay rights qualify as a moral panic – when stereotypes end up scapegoating an entire population as society attempts to dictate and regulate what is bad?

Album Notes
The question of gay rights has become a hot button issue, with opposition taking on the air of a moral panic and support taking on the air of a righteous crusade. John and Ken attempt to dispassionately examine the competing scientific, religious, and philosophical visions of the nature of gayness. They explore the consequences of those competing arguments for and against gay rights with cultural and psychological anthropologist Gilbert Herdt, editor of Moral Panics, Sex Panics: Fear and the Fight over Sexual Rights. This program was recorded live at the Marsh Theater in Berkeley.
