MN Homophobe Parades Lack of Basic Science Ed with Laughable Testimony Against Marriage Equality
As one of my Facebook commenters said, “OMFg!! My 8 year old comes home with more accurate sh*t from the playground than this!” And to think, this guy, Mike Frey, a “concerned father and husband,” shared his mind-blowing ignorance with the world as he shared his deep thoughts about why gays and lesbians getting married has something to do to anal sex and AIDS. (HuffPo):

He claimed that heterosexual sex could be safer because the vagina has a “barrier of cellular tissue that doesn’t allow the sperm … to penetrate the blood flow,” but anal sex doesn’t have such protections.
“When ejaculation occurs inside of a colon, it’s highly absorbent material, the cells do not have a barrier for the sperm and those enzymes to enter into the blood flow,” Frey said. “When the enzymes enter into the blood flow, and a continued, prolonged environment of that happens, these enzymes in the blood flow, it causes what we know as AIDS.”
It’s all good because:
Apparently STDs like syphilis did not exist before the invention of anal sex in the 1980s and women never contracted them. Ever. Because… something…
Weep for America — “Is our children learning?”
Also, I’m sure he wasn’t happy with this development (Think Progress):
As expected, the Minnesota House Civil Law Committee advanced marriage equality legislation tonight with a vote of 10-7, reflecting today’s similar vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee. The bill now advances to the full House, but as in the Senate, its potential for passage there is not yet known. Still, that the bill would advance to the floor of both chambers just months after the state defeated a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage speaks to incredible progress in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.
