Atheist: I thought you used logic and evidence, why can’t you see that homosexuality is wrong?

by Rachel on April 20, 2011

Forget the bible!!! But it seems that to find the majority of you I need to ask in the spiritual section lol. Anyways that is a different question for another day.

So I googled the harm in gay sex. I am no doctor but its obvious that gay sex is harmful especially in men. I am not the type to ask long questions but I want to post this from a medical expert:

. Anal-genital

Anal intercourse is the sine qua non of sex for many gay men.22 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. The single layer tissue cannot withstand the friction associated with penile penetration, resulting in traumas that expose both participants to blood, organisms in feces, and a mixing of bodily fluids.

Furthermore, ejaculate has components that are immunosuppressive. In the course of ordinary reproductive physiology, this allows the sperm to evade the immune defenses of the female. Rectal insemination of rabbits has shown that sperm impaired the immune defenses of the recipient.23 Semen may have a similar impact on humans.24

The end result is that the fragility of the anus and rectum, along with the immunosuppressive effect of ejaculate, make anal-genital intercourse a most efficient manner of transmitting HIV and other infections. The list of diseases found with extraordinary frequency among male homosexual practitioners as a result of anal intercourse is alarming:

Anal Cancer
Chlamydia trachomatis
Cryptosporidium
Giardia lamblia
Herpes simplex virus
Human immunodeficiency virus
Human papilloma virus
Isospora belli
Microsporidia
Gonorrhea
Viral hepatitis types B & C
Syphilis25

Anyway, now do you see why its not normal! And that is not the complete article either.

LOL wow, and I thought that those who dont believe in God are the intelligent ones. But the answer regarding protection, thats hilarious! A condom doesn’t shrink a mans penis. Its still going to tear any rectum over time. Stop trying to out smart God.

Then don’t do it and you won’t have to worry at all…AT ALL.

Angie April 20, 2011 at 12:13 pm

Doesn’t your Bible say to not judge other people? I think you’re the one who isn’t being logical.

Quite Alright (Baron) April 20, 2011 at 12:19 pm

but straight couples can still catch STDs and oral sex can still be performed.

S April 20, 2011 at 12:37 pm

your confusing homosexuality, with anal sex. even woman have anal sex and it may not be good for you, but that dosn’t make homosexuality wrong!

Shane April 20, 2011 at 1:26 pm

Are you this passionate about women who participate in anal sex? If you have sex you are taking a risk, either take the risk or don’t, but don’t condemn the people who do. Not all gays participate in anal intercourse, some only do oral.

Avocado April 20, 2011 at 1:48 pm

FYI…some straight couples have anal sex, too. Furthermore, with the right PROTECTION (like condoms and having only one partner), these issues aren’t a problem. Next, women tend to have vagina-to-vagina sex. Lastly, homosexuality is seen in virtually ALL mammals.

FAIL.

Edit: No, it doesn’t “shrink a man’s penis,” but it DOES prevent leakage of semen, as well as protection from most of those diseases you mentioned. “Out smart God”? LOL, it’s called basic physical science, my friend, which you apparently have never had.

Q April 20, 2011 at 1:49 pm

I’ve never said it’s wrong or right. I just happen not to care what consenting adults do with their sex organs.

Patch April 20, 2011 at 2:41 pm

So you got your “evidence” from catholiceducation.org…that sounds like a completely unbiased source for fact…

Imperfectionist (2) April 20, 2011 at 2:58 pm

Bro heterosexual couples practice anal sex as well.
You don’t dislike gays, you dislike sodomy
EDIT: anal sex isn’t wrong because you have a chance of catching something, you have that problem with oral, and vaginal sex as well.

You’ve been touched by Imperfectionist

Caboose April 20, 2011 at 3:10 pm

Anal sex is the 3rd most popular form of sex among homosexual males. They engage in oral sex and mutual masturbation far more often.

Also, straight people have anal sex as well. So you have no good argument here.

The Vegan Butcher April 20, 2011 at 3:22 pm

I know girls who like anal sex does that make them gay? There are risk in “regular sex” . Point is homosexuality isn’t “wrong” you can’t control who you are attracted to.

Mon April 20, 2011 at 4:10 pm

You seem to forget a few things:

1. Straight people have anal intercourse as well.
2. Not all homosexual men have anal intercourse.
3. Lubricants and condoms reduce a lot of the risk.
4. What other people do in bed is none of your business.
5. We shouldn’t be in the business of regulating other people’s sex lives. What two consenting adults do together is their own concern.

timelady April 20, 2011 at 4:40 pm

I’d rather deal with those types of problems than be stuck in a lifestyle that I was miserable. If I were gay being forced to be in a hetero relationship would probably make me suicidal.

beastlt12 April 20, 2011 at 5:05 pm

Awesome! haha

‘Catholiceducation.org’

Gay sex is bad (unless it’s with little boys)

magpieix A.L.M.N. April 20, 2011 at 5:45 pm

Nice unbiased source you got there.

Great Gazoo April 20, 2011 at 6:29 pm

Funny….but there are no stats here that show the rate is any higher than sexually active heterosexuals.

devout atheist, god is dead. April 20, 2011 at 7:19 pm

the only useful piece of advice in your cut and paste homophobic rant was “forget the buy-bull”

Rick G April 20, 2011 at 8:19 pm

I always figured that both abortion and homosexual living would be against the “best practices” concept of an atheist. Why?

First, start with abortion. By today’s standard, Einstein’s mother would have been told that he had a genetic defect, and would not do well in the world. How many “Einsteins” have been aborted over the past 40 years? Maybe the genius that would have found the solution to Fusion energy, warp drives, etc. The only HOPE of an atheist is that someone from among HUMANKIND can solve the problems of the earth. With all that genetic potential being thrown in the trash or furnace, they should be in an uproar.

The second, homosexuality. The same concept. That sperm that was wasted, could have been the ONE! But no, that end of the gene pool is closed to the true homosexual. Atheists should demand that humans be allowed to continue to “evolve” and by wasting that genetic material is a sin against mankind.

Ask April 20, 2011 at 8:38 pm

Ever heard the expression, “it feels right”? Maybe it feels right, for them. Maybe, just MAYBE, attraction =/= choice. Meaning, you don’t have a choice about what someone is attracted to. You will never be able to outright stop it. Quit trying.

Just this guy, ya know April 20, 2011 at 8:49 pm

I’m sure some of us believe that, ut there is NO logical reason to think so. Your “fact” are incomplete or just plain wrong

Jedi Groundhog April 20, 2011 at 9:01 pm

If we went with logic and logic alone, then worshiping an unseen entity that changes from belief to belief would also be considered illogical, and thus wrong.

alucard0469 April 20, 2011 at 9:59 pm

So if gay men are 10 percent of the population. assuming that the rest is straight with even 35 percent of them engaging in anal intercourse that is a lot more than gay peoples percentage. also if your religious and we’re gods perfect creation why in the hell would he put the male g-spot ,which is your prostate, then. add if sperm lowering your immune system is your main argument then we should stop cumming in females (yea no way in hell right) and just cause thier gay doesnt mean all they do is engage in anal sex there are other ways to reach climax

Believer April 20, 2011 at 10:32 pm

Oxford University’s International Journal of Epidemiology reports: “Life expectancy at age 20 years for gay and bisexual men is 8 to 20 years less than for all men. If the same pattern of mortality continues, we estimate that nearly half of gay and bisexual men currently aged 20 will not reach their 65th birthday.”
Gary Glenn of the American Family Association of Michigan comments on this data that, “judging by the number of years at risk, homosexual activity is up to three times deadlier than smoking.”

The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention report that men who engage in homosexual behavior are 860% more likely to contract a sexually transmitted disease (STD), increasing up to 500% their risk of contracting HIV/AIDS.

The Medical Institute of Sexual Health reported in 1999 that
- “Homosexual men are at significantly increased risk of HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, anal cancer, gonorrhea and gastrointestinal infections as a result of their sexual practices.”
- “Women who have intercourse with women are at significantly increased risk of bacterial vaginosis, breast cancer and ovarian cancer than are heterosexual women.”
- “Significantly higher percentages of homosexual men and women abuse drugs, alcohol and tobacco than do heterosexuals.”

Why would anyone want to put someone they say they love at such risk?

God Bless You!

homosexuality is wrong? Homosexuality is not a choice. People dont just wake up one day and say “hey you know what, i wanna be gay” and you cant cure anyone of homosexuality, its been scientifically proven. So why is it so wrong? I know a lot of gay people who are the greatest, nicest people i have ever met! I cant possibly turn my back on them because “anal sex is not normal” What the fuck is crap that you are throwing at us? yes, there are health risks involved, but their are also helth risks involved with penis-vagaga sex. and also with rideing the subway, and grilling cheeseburgers, and everything else that we do in life! so shut up and get a life and stop hating on people for no goddam reason. FOOL!

jethom33545 April 20, 2011 at 11:53 pm

You showed your colors in the final sentence.Your real objection to gays is religion.Gays are born that way.Liking sex is normal behavior-straight or gay.

A Zebra Striking April 20, 2011 at 11:54 pm

Actually that seems rather factual to me as I have been in both the medical and natural health field for 10 plus years. Many may wonder why the inject certain medicines rectally. This is because it enters the bloodstream very rapidly due to the thin membrane. Therefore, the risk of many diseases. In addition, the rectum is not made for this extreme sexual activity, just for the reason that people, (either heterosexual or homosexual or bio-sexual) need to satisfy their lustful tendencies.

Of course each one is going to scream “that it is their right”. Obviously everyone does their own thing and do not want to be told otherwise. They should just do some investigating into medical journals before they cause irreversible harm to themselves and others.

Added: There is a scripture that speaks against homosexuality and other sexual practices that are considered “unnatural”. Guess they will have to argue with God.
