Jamming the Truth about Homosexual Behavior

Dr. James Holsinger, president Bush's nominee for Surgeon General, is coming under attack from the gay rights activists and the media for a study he prepared in 1991 on behalf of the United Methodist Church of which he is a member. The study, entitled Pathophysiology of Male Homosexuality is a review of the medical literature available in 1991 concerning the the physiological aspects of homosexual acts and their overwhelmingly negative health consequences. (You can read the report here, but be warned, despite the clinical approach, it is graphic due to the subject matter).

The substance of the report is being "jammed" in the media by focusing predominantly on an example he uses of how sexual complimentarity is so ingrained in our culture as evident in the naming of pipe fittings.

The full quote summarizing his physological report is this:

It is absolutely clear that anatomically and physiologically the alimentary and reproductive systems in humans are separate organ systems; i.e., the human does not have a cloaca. Likewise it is clear that even primitive cultures understand the nature of waste elimination, sexual intercourse, and the birth of children. Indeed our own children appear to intuitively understand these facts. I think we should note that these simple "scientific facts are the same in any culture - patriarchal or matriarchal, modern or primitive, Jewish or gentile, etc. 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 pipe fitting or the female pipe fitting depending upon which one interlocks within the other. When the complementarity of the sexes is breached, injuries and disease may occur as noted above.

Therefore, based on the simplest known anatomy and physiology, when dealing with the complementarity of the human sexes, one can simply say, Res ipsa loquitor - the thing speaks for itself!

But this statement is presented in a barage of news stories as:

Sixteen years ago, he wrote a paper for the church in which he likened the reproductive organs to male and female "pipe fittings" and argued that homosexuality is therefore biologically unnatural.

Say what?

This is to be expected along with the personal invective hurled against him by the gay activists, however what is odd is the defense the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is offering:

It should be noted that in 1991, homosexuals were banned from the military and several years before that, homosexuality and Haitian nationality were considered risk factors for HIV/AIDS. Over the last 20 years, a clearer understanding of these issues has been achieved. Any new compilation of scientific information on health issues facing homosexual populations would have a substantially different focus.

So, since 1991 the scientific health consequences of homosexual behavior have substantially changed over the last 20 years, homosexuality is no longer a risk factor for HIV/AIDS?

It doesn't look like it. Out America's own website tells about the health risks of homosexual behavior. Here is a passage about just one of the diseases linked to homosexual behavior:

More than 60 percent of men without HIV and 90 percent of men with HIV who have sex with men are infected with the human papillomavirus in their anal canals [anal warts]. More than 24 million Americans carry HPV, and there are approximately one million new infections each year.

And Homosexuals are now admiting that HIV/AIDS is a "Gay Disease."

Why then is the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services saying that the scientific research has led to a clearer understanding of the health risks of homosexual behavior, when Dr. Holsinger's study has only been more emphatically confirmed by the reserach?

So here is the question:

Does the State have a public health interest in promoting natural sexual behavior and a positive duty to inform the public that homosexual behavior is unnatural and objectively harmful as the chief cause of a host of diseases?

Regular smoking shorten's a person's life by 1 to 7 years, in contrast regular homosexaul behavior shortens a person's life by 24 years!

Given the public record on homosexual behavior, what should the Surgeon General's policy be toward homosexual and other unnatural sexual behaviors which spread disease and early death in society?
