A member of the dominant culture of anal sex who, by his words and actions, works to maintain and support that culture while denigrating and censoring other points of view.

The word "analist" is also used to characterize the dominant culture of anal sex itself.

Further explanation:

Gay men today live under a dominant culture of anal sex.

A culture (sometimes referred to as a "paradigm") is a set of norms which structure how group members perceive the world and how they behave.

A dominant culture or paradigm is pervasive and acts to exclude all other norms and competing worldviews.

A dominant culture or paradigm presents itself as the correct way of understanding the world, and its adherents work to censor and silence competing ideas, while actively supporting group norms.

There are different names given the adherents of dominant cultures, usually based upon the name given the culture.

So for example, "communists" supported "communism" and "fascists" "fascism."

In our writing about the dominant culture of anal sex, which some call "analism," we refer to "analists."

An analist is to the dominant culture of anal sex as a White Supremacist is to segregation.

Both are agents of the majority culture who work through word and deed to keep cultural norms in place and in power.

A good example of an analist is Dr. Stephen Goldstone of, who in his writing and advice columns seeks to facilitate and encourage men to have anal sex even while acknowledging that "an anus is not a vagina" and that anal penetration is "the highest risk sex act that men who have sex with men can perform."
