Why does it seems like there are more people LGBTQ today than, say, 20 years ago? Is it because that community, along with their allies, have created a society where it’s safer for people to come out and be honest about who they are?
Not according to Christian Right activist Dave Daubenmire. He’s blaming vaccines. Seriously. He made the claim on his “Pass The Salt Live” webcast yesterday.
Daubenmire is proof that reading doesn’t make you smarter.
“I read a lot of stuff,” Daubenmire said. “Have you noticed the explosion of deviant sexual proclivities? It used to just be homo and straight, then there was homo and straight and bi, then homo and straight and bi and trans, and homo and straight and bi and trans and gay; they keep adding initials, right?”
“I was reading something that this was happening, literally this was happening because our DNA is being changed,” he continued. “Our DNA is being changed not only through what we eat but through the stuff that we’re seeing right here. Who knows what was injected into some of these deviant sex people as children. When they say they were born that way, maybe they were vaccinated that way.”
You can’t vaccinate the “bi” into people. You also can’t cough “lesbian” on them. Or insert the “gay” gene into someone’s DNA. And while we’re at it, voting Democrat doesn’t make you trans. LGBTQ people existed before vaccines, straight people get vaccinated without changing their orientation, and why the hell am I still trying to refute the irrational claims of a Christian who just makes things up in the name of God…
At least that chyron on his screen is on point: “Christians are choosing to be ignorant.” He got that right, at least.
