New Year’s Resolution: More Gay Sex

by , under GLBT Issues, Politics

More Gay Sex!Right-wing nutjobs are urging people to “Quit Gay Sex” and promoting a false parallel to news organizations that are urging people to “Quit to Live” smoking. They claim, falsely, that: gay people are in “the dangerous and addictive homosexual lifestyle” and “Life-threatening sexually transmitted diseases among homosexuals are on the increase.” The seem to be ignoring some facts…
1. “Homosexuality” is not just about sex, but about relationships and love.
2. Homosexuality is not “addictive” but an at-birth characteristic.
3. Not all “homosexuals” are men.
4. Lesbians have lower instances of sexually-transmitted diseases than heterosexuals.
5. Most gay men are not HIV-positive.
6. Most gay men aren’t promiscuous; most don’t practice unsafe sex.
In light of this, I’m planning to start a “More Gay Sex” campaign, urging gay people to have more (safe, healthy, responsible) gay sex during the new year. And I’ll pledge to do so myself, as a New Year’s Resolution. And if you’re not gay, please have more heterosexual sex in solidarity, to show your support for my new campaign.
Who’s with me?
One person pointed this out: “Instead of ‘Quit Gay Sex’ how about we substitute ‘Make a Promise to Be Faithful to Just One Partner.’ Oh wait. That’d be gay marriage, wouldn’t it? My bad.”

    I recently heard a comedian (can’t remember who) ask why gay marriage was such a big deal? He figures it should be heterosexual marriage that should be restricted, given that we’re the ones who keep producing all these gay babies.
    It was funnier the way he said it, but maybe that “Quit Gay Sex” campaign should be extended to heterosexual sex, too. If we stop making babies, this homosexual “problem” will eventually go away!
    Wait a minute… Did I just suggest we all stop having sex? What, am I crazy? Unpost! How do I unpost this?
