 Robert A. Heinlein`s Gay Deciever Car`s Bug War


Although Robert A. Heinlein`s novel, Starship Troopers (1959), about an Earth of the future attacked by intelligent alien arachnids (spiders) from the planet Klendathu doesn`t seem to have any connection with his novel, The Number Of The Beast (1980), which features the space car Gay Deciever, the correlating factor is HIV/AIDS. The `incurable killer disease` of the late 20th century was spread by `gay`, that is, homosexual men, mixing blood, shit and semen in each others` anuses during mockeries of human sexual intercourse, which through sperm fertilization reproduces from women`s ovum and host wombs species` brainpower for invention, and so represents future development. Grammatically, it`s `i` before `e` except after `c`, but Heinlein`s car is `i` before `e` after `c`, and deliberately so, because it`s a D.C. `ever car`, that is, a `supercar` based on D.C. Comics` Superman character, who arrives on Earth as its savior after his planet, Krypton, is destroyed. Although Superman is known for his `super vision`, Gay Deceiver poses the question: `D` y` see ever?` Although D.C. `ever` is super heaven, there`s no superman sign that humanity will ever escape from being supervised over its spreading of the HIV/AIDS` `blood plague` (Rev: 11. 6) because, in a world threatened by HIV/AIDS transmissions, supervision isn`t sight guided by others who believe you can`t see, but who believe you shouldn`t. Gay Deciever`s name obviously represents an attempt to deceive `gays`, that is, The Number Of The Beast is devised to be gaze deceiving to those who, presumably, don`t want humans to see beyond their supervision. As a `biological weapon`, HIV/AIDS keeps women in fearful faithfulness to men`s slave ring in monogamy: `Men cursed the God of heaven for their pains and their sores, but refused to repent of what they had done.` (Rev: 16. 11) What they done was prefer men to women, which is a species` sterilizer`s mode. Bbecause of accepted taboos and conventions peculiarly indicative of a preference for sterility amongst science fiction publishers, Heinlein`s The Number Of The Beast presents a solution unpalatable to men since ancient Greece`s host womb enslavement of women`s host wombs in homosexuality and pederasty for warfare against humanity became the model for democracy: sexual reproduction between women.



 In Christian iconography Jesus` mother, the Virgin Mary, is depicted crushing the head of the serpent with her foot, because the serpent, Satan, was the angel turned into a serpent by God for rejecting God`s plan that the human host should be greater than the angelic. Placed in Eden, the paradise of heaven on Earth, Satan, tempted Eve, the first woman, to `eat of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil`, that is, death, and reject God`s `fruit of the tree of life`, which was immortality, `You shall be as gods.` (Gen: 3. 5) Telling Eve she`d have `enmity` with the `serpent`s seed`, God told Eve her `seed` would have Redemption after God`s expelling Eve, and the first man, Adam, from Eden, if Adam labored, although Eve would experience labor pain, which was fulfilled in the birth of Jesus from his mother, the Virgin Mary: `You shall crush the head of the serpent with your foot, but he shall bruise your heel.` (Gen: 3. 15) Because futanarian women have penis` semen of their own for the sexual reproduction of their own brains` powers to liberate their human race from ephemeral host womb slavery to men of the host womb enslaving `serpent`s seed`, they`re God`s `foot`. Although Satanism is strong, `woman`s seed` will be triumphant: `And the dragon was wroth with the woman and went to make war upon the remnant of her seed.` (Rev: 12. 17) Grown since its days as a serpent in Eden, the `red dragon`, Satan, represents slavery`s attempt to prevent an enslaved human species from escaping.



 Heinlein`s concept of Gay Deciever is eclectic, Gay, D` y` see ever? He draws on the title of a track by English heavy metal rock group, Led Zeppelin, `D`yer Mak`er` (1973), from the album Houses Of The Holy, where the language has a sexual connotation, that is, `Did you make her?` Although the song draws upon Jamaica reggae music, `D`yer Mak`er`, is about realizing a painful truth: `When I read the letter you wrote, it made me mad mad mad. When I read the words that it told me, it made me sad sad sad.`1 Although Heinlein and Zeppelin seem a curious mix, the band`s song, `Trampled Underfoot`, from the Physical Graffiti (1975) album is about oil and cars, whereas Gay Deciever is fueled by water: `Groovin' on the freeway, gauge is on the red. Gun down on my gasoline, I believe I'm gonna crack a head.`2 Admitting they were Satanists, Led Zeppelin, whose symbol was an exploding airship, appealed to the gun totin` automobile culture of the US, where car manufacturers reputedly bought up patents for water fueled cars,3 because the oil producers didn`t want technological development to interfere with their lucrative business. Science was held back by the oil and car industries, so women`s human futanarian `seed` for the production of brainpower to liberate the species from slavery was underfoot the `gas` pedals of the demon driven. It`s a question of whether science fiction is realizable, that is, can science make a car that`s forever, and if so, `Did you make her?` If futanarian `woman`s seed` isn`t to escape from men`s HIV/AIDS` transmissions into unsupervised sex, God`s `foot` must avoid being crushed by the feet of car drivers, who don`t want a level of technology from which humanity can escape. If God`s foot is trampled in Satanism, `woman`s seed` is made to accept it by Satanists.



 Although Heinlein`s Starship Troopers appears as an extraterrestrial war with an alien race, the euphemism `bug war` deployed in the text suggests that it`s `biological warfare` which is the subject that, by the late 20th century, produced `geek` software experts devising `bad machine code` to transmit viruses to computers based on HIV/AIDS` paradigm of men`s brain eating sexually transmitted disease (STD). Heinlein`s Starship Troopers envisions a cure for lethal STD transmissions, where `STD` is `Starship Troopers Defense`, after US President Ronald `Ray Gun` Reagan`s Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) of March 23, 1982, a `ground and space based missile system` known as `star wars` from the Star Wars (1977) movie featuring an orbiting `Death Star` built to kill planets. As science fiction writer, Arthur C. Clarke, whose short story, `The Sentinel`, was made into a movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), by Hollywood `Babylon` director Stanley Kubrick, he was widely credited for the `invention` of the telecommunications` satellite,4 so `IE` was the abbreviation used by the Microsoft corporation for its `internet explorer` software, while Heinlein`s name for his supercar, Gay Deciever, emphasizes, `IE`, because it`s a `space-time continua vehicle` capable of accessing all alternative universes, fictional or real, that is, it`s a `search engine` devised to discover an escape from - or a cure for - the `death camp` humanity had been imprisoned in by BEMs, where BEMs aren`t alien spiders from Klendathu, but the `bug-eyed monsters` of men`s intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) armed with nuclear warheads designed to eradicate a plague zone for those whose eyes see BEMs everywhere. In short, the human species` days are numbered by `the beast` of Revelation, but there`s a solution in positively ID-ing the alien. In Starship Troopers the `bug war`, fought by Rico`s Roughnecks, are its boy sons. Rico, who lost his home Buenos Aires, during a bug raid over Argentina, commands a platoon dropped from starships by women pilots called `mothers`. It`s an allegory of men`s warfare against the human futanarian species of `woman`s seed` bred to wage war against her. Although it isn`t explicit, the starship pilot mothers` boy sons represent poisons, that is, the bugs of Klendathu are depicted as alien, but men represent the parasite that somehow untold millennia ago inveigled itself into the human futanarian species of the host womb of `woman`s seed` to steal her penis and replicate itself to emerge as what parasitologists call a `parasitoid` that kills the host after its emerging. In short, `the bugs` of Klendathu and the mothers` boy sons, who`re dropped onto the `bug world`, are allegorically identifiable as men`s poisoning, because they`re waging war with the help of an enslaved species` host womb for the production of aliens that are keeping `woman`s seed` imprisoned on Earth as the equivalent of the arachnid menace of Klendathu in order to exterminate a species to which it`s given plague by means of its ICBMs, so that the women won`t be frightened by not seeing the `bug-eyed monsters` (BEMs) anymore.



 In The Number Of The Beast Gay Deciever is invented by Heinlein`s central protagonist, Professor Jacob `Jake` Burroughs, whose name is itself a homage to Edgar Rice Burroughs, who wrote the `Barsoom` stories of red Martian Princess, Dejah Thoris, who in A Princess Of Mars (1912) for example, observes that Earthmen aren`t women, or red Martians either: `... Earth men, almost without exception, cover their bodies with strange, unsightly pieces of cloth ..`,5 whereas Dejah Thoris ornaments her nudity, because a single species of women wouldn`t be made to feel prey by men`s alien taboos about sexuality. The taboo against mother-son incest and father-daughter incest is designed to prevent the daughter-mother species` interaction that would afford women the possibility of explaining human futanarian sexuality to their successive generations. Jake`s sometime co-pilot is D.T. Burroughs, his daughter, who`s baptized Dejah Thoris, while her crew member husband`s name, Zeb Carter, is a mnemonic to the reader of Earthman, John Carter, Dejah Thoris` hero of Barsoom. Hilda `Sharpie` Burroughs is Jake`s wife, although Jake and D.T. engage in a bout of incestuous wife-swapping, which is the best Heinlein could do for women`s daughters given the publishing conventions of the science fiction of the early 1980s upholding those societal taboos against incest preventing women from sexually reproducing with each other as a socio-economically independent species. A rather bizarre upholding, of course, because science fiction was designed to examine societal possibilities, rather than uphold the perspective of the alien parasitoid devourer of the human futanarian species of `woman`s seed` in its wars against her.

 The married pairs, Jake and Hilda, and Zeb and Deety, visit Barsoom (Mars) in Gay Deciever, because Earth society`s marriage taboos are the theme of The Number Of The Beast, which gets its name from Jesus` disciple, John, who wrote in his prophetic apocalypse, Revelation: `The number of the beast is the number of a man and his number is six hundred three score and six.` (Rev: 13. 8) The premise of Heinlein`s novel, The Number Of The Beast, is that the number of alternative universes accessible to the car are six raised to the power of six raised to the power of six, that is, `10, 314, 424, 798, 490, 535, 546, 171, 949, 056.`6 The meaning of the number is that men and women constitute 66.6% of the human potential of the Earth, if futanarian women with their own penis` semen for the sexual reproduction of the human species` brainpower are accepted as a part of the equation. Daughters that don`t understand their species` sexual taboo is human futanarian `woman`s seed` can`t reject marriage with a man they don`t want, because they prefer a `wife`. Consequently, at least from those daughters` point of view, as a race kept in blind ignorant unconsciousness by a mass media that denies `woman`s seed`, men are alien host womb enslavers in parasitism upon the host womb of their race.

 Being forced to accept men is against women`s single species` interactivity, which is made schizophrenic for many daughters, because they can`t see anything approaching normality in the mirrors of their dreams. They`re expected to marry and have children outside of their own species` inclination. Often without even the knowledge that their species` taboo against men is genuine, because they want to sexually reproduce with futanarian women with their own penis` semen for the fertilization of the ovum in their own host wombs. Although women`s sexual orientation seems defined and definable to men, a daughter without a penis might have the sexual orientation of a futanarian woman with a penis, which is doubly difficult, because she doesn`t want a woman with a penis, she wants to be the woman with the penis. Although `lesbianism` is the tag categorizing her as socially aberrant, but acceptable within normative standards, a woman is accepting the taboo of her species, if she doesn`t want men, rather than being tagged with a label suggesting she`s societally defective, because she`s made to perceive herself schizophrenically as a woman who wants women in the abjuration of men as the only possibility of sexual reproduction, whereas women are a possibility, which would go some way to healing her schizophrenia. D.T. in The Number Of The Beast says of Jake, her father, in the very first line of the book: `He`s a mad scientist and I`m his beautiful daughter.` (Ch. 1) Mad, because he thinks he can keep her whereas, if her orientation is human futanarian `woman`s seed`, it`s normatively Christian, and in accordance with Jesus` teaching of loving one`s neighbor, for D.T. to want to escape from men, and her father, into whatever heaven she can find in the arms of another woman as the representative of her own species of `woman`s seed`.



 As a search engine, Gay Deciever corresponds to an IBM (International Business Machine) computer, that is, an eye B-EM, susceptible to `geek` devised `bad machine code` corresponding to `the bugs` that destroy John Rico`s home, Buenos Aires, in Starship Troopers, that is, permanent memory, so it isn`t surprising to discover that `the beast` in The Number Of The Beast is a replicating BEM attacking the crew, because without eyes there isn`t useful memory for the business of living. Although the first mass produced automobile came off the Henry Ford conveyor belt at his plant in Detroit, state of Michigan, USA, as the Model T Ford in 1904, the basic design hadn`t changed in 100 years, and the eight windows with side mirrors and two pairs of lights - fore and aft - is nothing if not suggestive of a wheeled insect with compound eyes, that is, the arachnid represented as attacking the Earth in Starship Troopers from the `bug planet` of Klendathu. Or, in other words, automobiles correspond to Heinlein`s vision of the alien parasitoid devourer of the future, and a tank full of oil on the plain of Megiddo near Israel`s port of Haifa, where the final battle of good with evil is destined to take place, according to the Bible, supports the truth of his vision, while Revelation provides an apocalyptic description of a `plague of locusts` resembling cars and full tanks: `And the locusts looked like horses prepared for battle, with something like crowns of gold on their heads, and faces like the faces of men. They had hair like that of women, and teeth like those of lions. They also had thoraxes like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the roar of many horses and chariots rushing into battle. They also had thoraxes like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the roar of many horses and chariots rushing into battle. They had tails with stingers like scorpions, which had the power to injure people for five months. They were ruled by a king, the angel of the abyss. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek it is Apollyon.` (Rev: 8-11) Conceived as an automobile with an engine transmission, the car is a transmitter of pictures corresponding to `TV` because male braining of men and women as a single creature wearing each others` clothes as a transvestite `TV` is what the automobile television is transmitting. Moreover, because men`s farming of humans as a transvestite `TV` for the transmitting of pictures that homosexuality in pederasty for war against `woman`s seed` doesn`t want, it`s a vehicle for the transmission of HIV/AIDS` pictures, that is, pictures of a dying species, and the reason it`s relatively unchanging is that men want to trap the animal in time to watch it die; lest it develop brainpower enough to escape their parastoid evil.

 Heinlein`s foursome encounter a `black beast` in The Number Of The Beast after it arrives at Jake`s home as Ranger Bennie Hibol, an anagram of Bob Heinlein: `... here's my authority!` The `Ranger` pulls a gun on Zeb: `I drew, lunged, and cut down in one motion-slashed the wrist, recovered, thrust upward from low line into the belly above the gun belt.` (Ch. 9) Dissecting the creature, Jake and the others discover that it`s hermaphroditic, which human futanarian women are. Consequently, the `Black Hat`, as they call it, represents a secret nature. With its curious capacity for bending the knee both forward and backward it can`t be human, but its black hermaphroditism does intimate the racism of those who`d want slaves to be able to kneel both ways, because miscegenation between black and white was taboo in the Southern States before and after the American Civil war (1961-5) to manumit African slaves brought to work in the cotton plantations there. In other words, kneeling both ways is a metaphor for the ways in which blacks were required to beg forgiveness for their master`s sins against them. It`s fallacious to suppose Jesus` teaching was that the evil should be prayed for so that they`ll be forgiven, although the evil presuppose that this is what the enslaved human race is for, that is, the evil should be prayed to so that they`ll stop being evil and then they`ll forgive the victim for being abused, which is why Heinlein`s `Black Hat` can kneel both ways.



 Although white Southern ante-bellum women were depicted in movies like Gone With The Wind (1939), starring actress Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O` Hara, with voluminous outflowing skirts that could have concealed a woman`s penis, movie conventions beginning officially with the `Hays code` (1930) established by President Will Hays of the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America (MPPDA) effectively banned women from knowledge of `woman`s seed` in a racist move equal to the ban on miscegenation: `... women, in love scenes, at all times have `at least one foot on the floor` (in other words, no love scenes in bed).`7 Heinlein`s `Black Hat` is a complex figure representing the desire of the slave to protect its freedom. When Heinlein`s crew go to Mars, where the British and Russian Empires are the alternative reality, Deety relates: `The men carried whips; vermin were muzzled. This one vermin - well, `wog` - this wog had managed to pull its muzzle aside and was stuffing this weedy plant into its mouth ... when a whip cracked across its naked back.` (Ch. 29) The wogs are the black hermaphrodites corresponding to black futanarian women, which men don`t want. Hilda explains to Deety: `Deety, these creatures bear the relation to 'Black Hats' that a chimpanzee does to a man. The physical resemblance is closer, but the difference in mental power - Doctor Wheatstone removed the brain from a cadaver; that told me all I needed to know.` In short, the black slave hermaphrodites are inferior to the escaped black slave hermaphrodites, who`re represented as overly protective of their freedom, because human futanarian `woman`s seed` productive of her own brainpower from her own species` penis` semen and host wombs doesn`t want to lose that capacity: `In Windsor colony wog meat goes only to wogs, and wogs don't care.` The disease bovine spongiform encephalitis (BSE) was a brain damaging illness in livestock arising in Britain and resulting from the same procedure, which explains Heinlein`s racism against `woman`s seed`, that is, wogs are fed to wogs in order to give them brain damage, because it wouldn`t be brain damaging for the single independent hermaphroditic species of `woman`s seed` to decode the incest taboo precluding her sexual intercourse with women as the host womb of her single independent species productive of liberating human futanarian brainpower.

 Because simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) arising in chimpanzees in Africa is similar to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which results in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), and ultimately bodily collapse and brain death, it`s perceived as the original form of immunodeficiency virus somehow transmitted to humans. Consequently, Heinlein`s wogs are correlated with black futanarian `woman`s seed`, because he identifies his `Black Hats` with hermaphroditic chimpanzees from Africa. Amongst Moslem women in Islam it`s traditional to wear the single one-piece coverall of the black burka which conceals them from public view. Although Judaism was founded by Isaac, son of Abraham, which has the futanarian tradition that a Jew can only be born from a woman, so women are Jews, Abraham`s other son, Ishmael, by his wife Sara`s maid, Hajer, because Sara gave her to Abraham after she was barren from the birth of Isaac, was the founder of Islam through his descendant Mohamed who received the Koran (610-30 C.E.) from the angels, according to tradition, who`d been told by God that the human host should be greater than the angelic. Women in Islam cover themselves in public lest they be seen by foreigners from nations where women are publically shamed as penisless, that is, the four wives permissible to Moslem marriages represent the democratic potential of a system geared to the sexual production of brainpower from `woman`s seed` within the family. However, Heinlein`s The Number Of The Beast defines them as chimpanzees, because they`re hermaphroditic, black and futanarian, although slightly less African, because they`re clothed: `No makeup, no plastic surgery, a hastily improvised disguise - from the neck down it looked human.` An uncharitable description of Moslem women in their burkas that would assist the US military during the Gulf wars to put oil in their tanks to improve the mobility of the `TV` pictures of the HIV/AIDS` transmission from the craters made by the `biological weapon` of their penisless mothers` boy sons. Although that seems offensive, it`s not as offensive as lying to the rest of the world about the non-existence of the woman`s penis so that it can be extinguished secretly by those who puff on phallically shaped cigarettes in full consciousnsess of what that `smoking gun` means.



 In Moslem Islam, Al-Ankaboot is a chapter (29) of the Koran about the industriousness of the spider, while the sura, Al Kahf, relates how a spider span a web across a cave for youths to hide in during pogroms against monotheism. The story from `The Cave`, chapter 18 of the Koran, is that the spider span a web of illusion over the cave entrance so that the youths wouldn`t be discovered. When they awoke from their rest, Islam and monotheism had been built and they were in heaven, because the cave represents the planets amongst the stars destined to be colonized by human futanarian `woman`s seed`. As blind ignorant unconsciousness of `woman`s seed` is the illusion men and women are kept in, the `car boot` of the `speeder` is a part of the delusory world humans live in, while the Moslem marriage of four wives with eight feet between them is conceived as a `spider` by misogynists who want to exterminate `woman`s seed`.  In their black burka one-piece coveralls, Iraqi `hidden` women, corresponding to Starship Troopers` arachnid threat to the US troops, defended their `seed` during the March, 2003, invasion by a nation parading the penislessness of its women like a war medal.

 Islam`s Moslem polygamy is a futanarian `spider` to racists, who don`t accept women`s mode of human sexual reproduction within the family. Consequently, Heinlein`s novel Starship Troopers, made into a Hollywood Babylon movie, Starship Troopers (1997), starring actress, Denise Richards as a pilot mother, Carmen Ibanez, dropping her boy sons to exterminate the spiders of Klendathu as a woman`s poisons, was about how men wage war on women from car boot to oil in the tanks on the plain of Megiddo: `Mystery, Babylon the great, mother of harlots and of the abominations of the Earth.` (Rev: 17. 5) There were rumors that Mary Joe Kopechne drowned after being put in a car boot on July 18, 1969, by Ted Kennedy, whose brothers, President John, and subsequent runner for the Presidency, Robert, were assassinated. The drowning of Mary Joe, after Ted`s car mysteriously went off a bridge at Chappaquiddick Island off the coast of Martha`s Vineyard, Massachusetts, while he walked home, was accounted a `political assassination` preventing Ted from becoming President. However the putative presence of Mary Joe Kopechne in the car boot is representative of the war waged by men on `woman`s seed` to keep itself as her slave driver, and is symbolized by the spider, Ankaboot, in futanarian Islam, which hides its women from men`s deluded eyes, rather than imprisoning them beneath the boot to die blindly. Penislessness for women necessarily means brainlessness for Eve`s `seed`, which explains war amongst the developed nations, who don`t want the women to have sight enough to escape host womb slavery in devourment to the parasitoid alien. `Babylon` was `a woman`, according to the Old Testament of the Bible, that is, the history and law of the Jews, which is the Talmud and Torah, who gave her name to the capital city of the Persian Empire, Babylon, because it was a seat of institutionalized host womb slavery of women for homosexuality in pederasty for war`s abominations. Although the film Starship Troopers depicts a further triumph for the polluting poisons of the oil and automobile industry`s car men, mother Carmen`s boy sons, dropping on the spiders of Klendathu, aren`t all she has under the hood.



 Traditionally a hood is placed over the head of someone due to be executed, for example, Saddam Hussein, who was Iraq`s dictator during the March, 2003, US invasion to depose him after he evinced support for the Al Qaeda terrorist organization operating out of Afghanistan under the auspices of the misogynist Taliban regime which, on September 11, 2001, crashed hijacked civil airliners into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Centre in New York city. Afghanistan`s Taliban regime was deposed in December 2001 and Saddam Hussein was hung with a hood over his head on December 30, 2006, after his regime was toppled. Afterwards Iraq`s Abu Bakr Al Bagdadi led the Independent State of Iraq and Syria against the Western allies, because Al Qaeda leader Osama Ben Laden`s attack on the World Trade Centre was a deliberate effort on the part of global misogyny to reestablish `rough trade`,8 that is, `brutality and violence` associated with women`s host womb enslavement for homosexuality in pederasty for war: `... if there is one place I'm certain is loaded with 'Black Hat' vermin, it's New York City!` (Ch. 33) Although the hood was placed over the head of Saddam Hussein prior to his execution by hanging, Iraq has the fifth largest oil reserves on Earth, while the US ranks eleventh, which means that, because reliance on oil is deliberately retarding of humanity`s development, the hood over the engine of the automobile is the executioner`s bonnet for `woman`s seed`, while the traditional `death cap` worn by the judge is located closer to the car boot of a `speeder`, although the parasitoid BEM slave driver continues to emerge from her tumbril.
