Do we want to discourage young men and women from developing a homosexual habit because we hate them? Just the opposite. We love them and don’t want to see homosexuality deprive them of their health and their very lives.
The Gay and Lesbian Medical Association, again not a part of the vast, rightwing conspiracy, publishes a list of at least 10 health risks associated with homosexuality, lesbianism and transgenderism.
Here are just some of the health risks the GLMA lists for homosexuality: HIV/AIDS, STDS (syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, pubic lice, hepatitis, Human Papilloma Virus, herpes, etc), substance abuse, alcohol abuse, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, prostate cancer, testicular cancer, colon cancer, and anal cancer.
To borrow from the experts the New York Times quotes, we should “evaluate how (homosexuality) is hurting us as a society,” reconsider our “policy making in public health,” and make sure that homosexuals are “receiving enough help to quit.”
