Update (15 November 2021)

Richard Wagner was the one who had asked “Are Traps Gay?” in reference to one of his least known Operas, Tannhäuser und der Sängerkrieg auf Wartburg (WWV 70), which is German for “Tannhäuser and the Minnesängers’ Contest at Wartburg.”

Okay, everything is going according to plan regarding the draft copy of Part V of “Total Educational Effort.” I can’t believe the Answer to the Question of “Are Traps Gay?” is related to the coinciding Question of “Are Parochial Schools the Answer?.” The Trap and the Parochial School will become socially acceptable again if young men and young women are familiar with themselves and their sense of restraint, sexually if not financially. This is too good.

“If one starts with the anatomical difference, which even a patriarchal Viennese novelist was able to see was destiny, then one begins to understand why men and women don’t get on very well within marriage, or indeed in any exclusive sort of long-range sexual relationship. He is designed to make as many babies as possible with as many different women as he can get his hands on, while she is designed to take time off from her busy schedule as astronaut or role model to lay an egg and bring up the result. Male and female are on different sexual tracks, and that cannot be changed by the Book or any book. Since all our natural instincts are carefully perverted from birth, it is no wonder that we tend to be, if not all of us serial killers, killers of our own true nature. ”

―Gore Vidal, United States: Essays 1952-1992, ca. 1993
