The traveling homosexual problem

March 10, 2009

“Every year, a quarter or more of homosexuals visit another country.20 Fresh American germs get taken to Europe, Africa and Asia. And fresh pathogens from these continents come here. Foreign homosexuals regularly visit the U.S. and participate in this biological swapmeet.”

Finally, a logical explanation for the high mortality rate in Palm Springs.

(By the way, I had a hunch that that random “20” was an endnote reference that our commenter forgot to delete, so I did a little Googling. Turns out this paragraph was lifted directly from a Family Research Institute pamphlet about how gay men are relentlessly icky and distressingly non-xenophobic; among other things, it informs us that “gays carried HIV from New York City to the rest of the world.” If you’d like to read a delicious take-down of this paragraph, and an explanation of why its statistics are ludicrous as presented, click here.)

(And yes, the post title is for all you math geeks.)

    Not being a math geek, I feared the title might be a reference to Neil Diamond’s “Brother Love’s Traveling Salvation Show.” I know desperate times call for desperate measures, but I’m relieved to know it has not yet become necessary, in the struggle against bigotry, to reference Neil Diamond songs. I apologize for doing so myself.
