The Health Risks of Gay Sex
Catholic Education ^ | JOHN R. DIGGS, JR., M.D

Posted on 02/10/2014 11:49:57 AM PST by SoFloFreeper

As a physician, it is my duty to assess behaviors for their impact on health and wellbeing. When something is beneficial, such as exercise, good nutrition, or adequate sleep, it is my duty to recommend it. Likewise, when something is harmful, such as smoking, overeating, alcohol or drug abuse, and homosexual sex, it is my duty to discourage it...

Back in the early 1980s, while working at Beth Israel Hospital, I vividly remember seeing healthy young gay men dying of a mysterious disease that researchers only later identified as a sexually transmitted disease — AIDS. Over the years, I've seen many patients with that diagnosis die...

Anal intercourse is the sine qua non of sex for many gay men. Yet human physiology makes it clear that the body was not designed to accommodate this activity. The rectum is significantly different from the vagina with regard to suitability for penetration by a penis. The vagina has natural lubricants and is supported by a network of muscles. It is composed of a mucus membrane with a multi-layer stratified squamous epithelium that allows it to endure friction without damage and to resist the immunological actions caused by semen and sperm. In comparison, the anus is a delicate mechanism of small muscles that comprise an "exit-only" passage. With repeated trauma, friction and stretching, the sphincter loses its tone and its ability to maintain a tight seal. Consequently, anal intercourse leads to leakage of fecal material that can easily become chronic.

The potential for injury is exacerbated by the fact that the intestine has only a single layer of cells separating it from highly vascular tissue, that is, blood. Therefore, any organisms that are introduced into the rectum have a much easier time establishing a foothold for infection than they would in a vagina.

Somehow, I don't think the media GENIUSES celebrating homosexuality KNOWS this information OR, if they DID know it, would DARE to put this information in their stories.

Well, let’s get real: this fluffy talk in the media about “gay” really is false, isn’t it?

So perchance someone WILL happen to see this source, written by a medical doctor, and TAKE TO HEART the truth that is in the paper.

Excellent article that explains, in medical detail, why homosexual behavior (anal sex) is very risky, at best. Most of the leftists that cheer for 'gay rights' either have no idea what they are encouraging or do know and don't care because they want to support what they wish to believe are an 'oppressed minority', making the liberal supporter morally superior in their own eyes.

Meanwhile, 'gay' rights are being used to trash natural heterosexual marriage by including a sexual perversion as equal in law (and inferred social acceptance) as natural sexual relations that marriage legalizes and religion approves in that context (marriage).

Clearly we need to allow this subset of morality to donate blood to normal society.

Phil Robertson said it briefly and bluntly.

“It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

Although some liberal observers criticized Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson’s remarks about homosexual behavior as “disgusting” and “vile and extreme stereotypes,” the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), one of the federal government’s leading health voices, uses nearly identical and even more graphic language in describing some of the sexual practices of male homosexuals.

Besides, liberals who call Phil's remarks "disgusting and vile" ought to bing the phrases "rimming" and "gay bowel syndrome".

The media love to show happy, adorable, funny, wholesome-looking gay couples in sitcoms and commercials. And viewers see this and say, “Oh, gays are so cute and nice! They just want to love each other! Who would be so mean as to not let them get married?” We’re not supposed to think about the information in this article. That’s why they got so mad at Phil Robertson. He dared to mention what gay men actually DO. And that disgusts normal people.

So here the left is faced with ALL the HARD Scientific Data that the Scientific community can PROVE and yet the left is unwilling or unable to accept the inconvenient truth that anal sex is THE cause of so much disease in the gay community. But who really would expect them to understand REAL science when they are so willing to accept pop-tart science to defend their positions on globullwarming.

Funny how Robertson’s brief description of what homosexual males actually do is considered a “stereotype.” Kinda like saying that water is wet is a stereotype.

The same medical advice is applicable to females that engage in anal intercourse with their male partners.

Homosexuality is unhealthy, self-destructive and leads to a 20 year shorter lifespan for practicing homosexuals.

That is why the homosexual agenda is to promote lies and to silence honesty about homosexuality as “hate speech”. The characterization of honesty as hate speech, the name calling and personal attacks against Christians and the statement that they were “born that way” and have no free will is the way they defend what is indefensible.

Excellent article. One of the most damning books I ever read about the gay lifestyle was “And the Band Played On” by Randy Shilts, who was a gay man. It tracked the early years of the AIDs crisis in North America. Shilts was a gay man who died of AIDS, but it was obvious he didn’t approve of the decadent promiscuity that caused the disease to spread so rapidly. He wrote of the bathhouses in San Francisco (when Dianne Feinstein was mayor), where a man would lay naked on his stomach with a tub of Crisco next to him (to use as a lubricant). Countless anonymous strangers would mount him and ejaculate into his rectum. This kind of hyper-promiscuity is why the disease spread like wildfire in the gay community and the liberals had to create a myth of a heterosexual epidemic to garner the support of the public.

The author briefly alluded to the point that cigarette smoking is far LESS hazardous to one’s health than homosexuality, but the culture condemns the LESS hazardous behavior, and encourages the MORE hazardous behavior.

That just plain ole ain’t rational. Leftism is indeed a form of stark-raving insanity. They’re about 51 cards shy of playing with a full deck.

If this guy is a doctor he's a quack. AIDs is Acquired immune Deficiency SYNDROME! A syndrome is NOT a sexually-transmitted disease. The supposed agent is a 9-kilo base retrovirus referred to as HIV. These were NOT " healthy young gay men". They were homosexuals who had a history of using 'poppers' to facilitate anal intercourse. They had been using heavy amounts of narcotics; they had been taking large doses of antibiotics, antifungals and antivirals for years. These agents suppressed their immune systems to the point where they fell susceptible to a wide variety of illnesses.

On top of this they were given highly toxic " chain- terminator" drugs which eventually destroyed any residual immune resistance they might have had and they died.

This guy doesn't know the first thing about this. Pathetic.

Are you saying that AIDs is NOT transmitted by sexual contact? Then why are people put in jail because they had AIDs and transmitted it to many people because they did not tell them they had the disease?

AIDs indeed is transmitted by sexual contact. It follows that AIDs is a sexually transmitted disease.

My wife and I had a friend with a “gay” son. The son was so damaged by penetration from his well-endowed lover that he had to be rushed to the Emergency Room for severe tearing and bleeding. The doc told him that after that episode, his days of playing the catcher were over. Sniff....

Simple science cannot be defied. To produce light a lamp plug is inserted into an electrical receptacle made for its design. If the plug is inserted into the sink drain it will never produce light and its never a normal use. No amount of social propaganda will ever change that fact.

It appears to me to be around 2002. Here’s a report from the CDC in 2010 that tries to diminish the behavior as the reason for poor health:

“In addition to considering the needs of LGBT people in programs designed to improve the health of entire communities, there is also a need for culturally competent medical care and prevention services that are specific to this population. Social inequality is often associated with poorer health status, and sexual orientation has been associated with multiple health threats. Members of the LGBT community are at increased risk for a number of health threats when compared to their heterosexual peers [1-5]. Differences in sexual behavior account for some of these disparities, but others are associated with social and structural inequities, such as the stigma and discrimination that LGBT populations experience.”

http://www.cdc.gov/lgbthealth/about.htm

Shifting blame from the perverted behavior to their social/economic situation. “It’s really not their fault.”

To all of the lawyers out there, the health risks of cigarettes are being used to prohibit smoking. Could states that are determined to maintain marriage between a man and a woman use the same justification, and could it hold up if it went to the Supreme Court?
