Homophobic Surgeon General nominee's writings picked up by MSM

Raw Story/PageOneQ features ABC’s coverage of anti-gay Surgeon General nominee Dr. James Holsinger, author of the anally-obsessed paper “Pathophysiology of Male Homosexuality.”  The word about this man’s homobigoted statements has made its way into the MSM.

On Thursday, ABC News reported that President Bush’s nominee for surgeon-general, Dr. James Holsinger, may be in trouble because of his “homophobic statements.

In 1991, Holsinger wrote a paper on “Pathophysiology of Male Homosexuality” for the United Methodist Church, in which he argued that homosexuality is unnatural and unhealthy. As reported in The Nation, “Holsinger argues that male-female ‘reproductive systems are fully complementary’ because ‘anatomically the vagina is designed to receive the penis.’ The remainder of his paper is a graphic account of the ‘delicate’ rectum which is ‘incapable’ of ‘protection’ if ‘objects that are large, sharp, or pointed are inserted’ into it.”

Will the Bushies let Holsinger twist in the wind or defend him? They have no political capital to spend.

See video after the flip.

This will be a tasty confirmation hearing; I can’t wait for someone to read some of the more colorful quotes from Holsingers paper, such as “the logical complementarity of the human sexes has been so recognized in our culture that it has entered our vocabulary in the form of naming various pipe fittings either the male fitting or the female fitting depending upon which one interlocks within the other.”

Adding to Holsinger’s problems, ABC concludes, the committee which will consider his nomination is chaired by Senator Ted Kennedy, a supporter of gay rights, and includes among its members presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Chris Dodd.

Senator Obama (D-IL) released the following statement Thursday morning, “America?s top doctor should be a doctor for all Americans, and so I have serious reservations about nominating someone who would inject his own anti-gay ideology into critical decisions about the health and well-being of our nation.”

Joe.My.God has a hilarious bit of business about Holsinger.

Since Surgeon General nominee Dr. James “Asshat” Holsinger likes to use plumbing analogies to illustrate his opposition to gay sex as dangerous and dirty, I’d like to provide him with my top ten favorite gay plumbing terms.

10. Back vent
9. Suction head
8. Blow bag
7. Hole saw
6. Discharge tube
5. Nipple clamp
4. Manhole
3. Rim hole
2. Reamer
