Oh, this is the joke nominee.... Now you're going to pull out the serious one, right?

Bil posted last week about Dr. James Holsinger being nominated for surgeon general, and how the dude supports "reparative" therapy for the gays. Well, the fun doesn't stop there. Someone dug up this old report he authored, Pathophysiology of Male Homosexuality. It's the same old plumbing argument that makes no sense, depending on the words "naturally", "intuitively", and "obviously" so much that you wonder if he couldn't find enough homophobes to cite to support his position. Yes, according to the possible future surgeon general:

The insertion of unlubricated objects or inadequate dilation of the anus before insertion of a large object can result in tissue laceration.
It's good to know that the surgeon general is concerned about us lubing up and fingering properly before anal! (As I'm writing this, I'm wondering if it's too vulgar for this site, but then again, the possible future surgeon general thought this was a good topic to take on professionally, so I guess I don't know from vulgar.)

Holsinger also makes an important distinction between straight women and gay men getting anal and quotes a "source" as saying:

Few anorectal problems and no evidence of anal-sphincter disfunction are found in heterosexual women who have anal-receptive intercourse.
Phew! The good doctor wouldn't want straight men to have to give up anal! Thank goodness he's looking out for them!

Read the whole thing. It's a good laugh and filled with scientifesque statements about anal sex. I can't take this guy seriously anymore; he's more obsessed with my butt than I am!

If we can't talk about lubricated insertion on here I just don't know what we are here for.

lol. If we outlaw talking about lubricated insertion, then only outlaws will lubricate before insertion!

I've got to know! I've got to know! Bil, Alex, Bruce ... when you use shoe polish, what brand do you recommend?

(Alex, Dr. Holsinger might be more obsessed with your butt than you are, but he's not as obsessed with your butt as I am! ... Oh-oh, I think I just said too much in public ...)

I'm just going to pretend this thread doesn't even exist...

*whistles while he walks away*

Actually, Bil, I think this thread proves my point about Holsinger. He's such a joke, and even serious people like Allen can't take him seriously. *ahem*

*Pretending not to understand the reference* I don't dress formally enough to have to polish my shoes, Allen.
