Tenured (?) wingnut professor on crack
I normally wouldn’t waste my time on the crap that emits from the keyboard of Professor Mike S. Adams over at Clown Hall, but this classless loose cannon of homobigotry is stationed in my state; he teaches criminology at the University of North Carolina – Wilmington. In a screed entitled “Fat Lesbians on Crack,” he shares his wisdom — comparing lesbianism with alcoholism:
Imagine for a moment that we were to forbid a counselor from expressing her objection to overeating, despite proven health risks, simply because the obese individual likes to eat and claims some genetic predisposition to obesity.
Or imagine for a moment that we were to forbid a counselor from expressing her objection to over-drinking, despite proven health risks, simply because the drunken individual likes to drink and claims some genetic predisposition to alcoholism. (Or, worse, imagine she likes crack!).
But you don’t have to imagine forbidding a counselor from expressing her objection to homosexuality, despite proven health risks, simply because the gay individual likes homosexuality and claims some genetic predisposition to gayness.
Jesse over at Pandagon has the smackdown:
You see, a counselor refused to counsel a woman on her lesbian relationship because she believed that homosexuality was immoral. Ergo, alcoholics would be protected from the discrimination of being told that their drinking is bad for them because of The Gay. Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi singlehandedly destroyed Alcoholics De Anonymous, don’tcha know?
What would happen if a gay therapist refused to treat a conservative Christian, or if Rod Parsley somehow found himself waiting in an ER while they tried to find a doctor who didn’t mind treating a massive jackass? Wait a second – it’s hard to hear your answer over the caterwauling.
