This Shit has to Stop

Matt Barber
Jesus loves you Matt!

In response to a recent outbreak of staph infection affecting gay men in major American cities Concerned Women for American spokesman Matt Barber has this to say:
(lifted from JMG)
Matt Barber: "The human body is quite callous in how it handles mistreatment and the perversion of its natural functions. When two men mimic the act of heterosexual intercourse with one another, they create an environment, a biological counterfeit, wherein disease can thrive. Unnatural behaviors beget natural consequences.

"In recent years our culture has adopted a laissez faire attitude toward sexual deviancy. Television shows like Will and Grace glorify the homosexual lifestyle while our children are taught in schools that homosexuality is a perfectly healthy, alternative sexual 'orientation.' 'Stay out of our bedrooms!' we're often commanded by militant 'gay' activists.

"Well, now the dangerous and possibly deadly consequence of what occurs in those bedrooms is spilling over into the general population. It's not only frightening, it's infuriating.

"Citizens, especially parents, need to stand up and say, 'No More! We will no longer sit idly by while politically correct cultural elites endanger our children and larger communities through propagandist promotion of this demonstrably deadly lifestyle'. Why does it take a potentially deadly staph epidemic for people to acknowledge reality? Will that even do it? Enough is enough!"

HRC Executive Director Joe Solomnese responds:
"We've come to expect hysteria and gross distortions from an organization like this and normally their bigoted rants don't even warrant a response. But the statement today about MRSA is beyond the pale. In typical fashion, they disregard the facts and instead chose to demagogue the issue in order to fear-monger. Serious medical issues deserve serious consideration, not wildly off-the-mark press releases from anti-gay groups trying to capture media attention. We saw this kind of hysteria in the early 1980's around HIV/AIDS, I'll be damned if we will sit idly by in 2008 and let them perpetrate that type of anti-gay hysteria without calling them out on it."
Thank you for your words Joe. Gay men, get angry- you're allowed. This is YOUR life- YOUR existence too. Do not roll your eyes. Do not relax in complacency. Do not think someone else will do it for you.

Wait, was that a quote from me, talking about religion?

And while we need to call these freaks out, I think we also need to look at ourselves and check the finger pointing and hysteria gay men perpetrate on each other...

Bathhouse drama anyone?

Fear rules the day, folks...is it any coincidence that this MRSA scare makes the headlines at the same time the health department wants to revisit the issue of closing the bathhouses around the country? Has anyone checked the european media to see if they have similar medical issues - many european cities are ok with bathhouses and don't seem to have these issues...hmmmmm

Matt Barber will be caught in a public toilet with a teenage boy. It's so predictable it might as well be scripted.

Eric, this myth was perpetrated by our own UCSF, when it issued an MRSA warning that could be construed to implicate gay men. To its credit, the SF Chronicle printed my letter debunking and rebutting it and asking readers to work together as a world community to defeat this disease. The Castro was inadvertently, incorrectly made to look like a hotbed of disease and infection!
We CAN make a difference: write to your local paper when you see homophobia, and speak out.
Good for your post, Eric.
