If It Doesn't Fit, You Must Acquit

Y'know, one day it would be great to see Bush put someone in a position of authority over the health and wellbeing of the citizens of the United States without that person being an inveterate dogmatic whose "medicine" is more Bible-based than science-based. Today is not that day.

Gay sex, [Dr. James Holsinger] warned, can lead to "lacerations, perforations and deaths...The anatomic and physiologic facts of alimentation and reproduction simply do not change based on any cultural setting. In fact, the logical complementarity of the human sexes has been so recognized in our culture that it has entered our vocabulary in the form of naming various pipe fittings either the male fitting or the female fitting depending upon which one interlocks within the other. When the complementarity of the sexes is breached, injuries and diseases may occur as noted above."

So, basically, it's the typical old "the parts don't fit" argument. As well as all the old tired points of AIDS, anal fissures, and, of course, fisting. Keep in mind that this is also the same Holsinger who believes in the validity of "ex"-gay therapy.

Man, there's a part of me that wants Barney Frank to just read this thing before Congress, just to see the look on Holsinger's face when an actual gay man calls him on the carpet for his sham science.
