We all know the proverbial “rubber-necking a train wreck” saying. That is, we know that something will end badly and possibly cost us our lunch, but we indulge anyway. The law doesn’t apply to just disasters and celebrities. It can be projected upon articles, as well.
Take, for example, this editorial by a Mississippi
yokel native named Zack Williams. In this piece, Mr. Williams rails against – you guessed it – the gays. Despite the title – “The homosexual lifestyle is an unhealthy one” – we couldn’t stop ourselves from reading it. And, yes, we feel sick.
Views presented on homosexuality are one-sided, and its portrayal as a completely healthy alternative lifestyle is inaccurate. Fact is, being gay is very hazardous to one’s health.
Homosexuality is unhealthy. Not in the way that cigarettes and booze are unhealthy, but in the way that drinking a shot of turpentine every Wednesday afternoon while perusing real estate catalogues for houses near nuclear waste dumps is unhealthy.
Hey, don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it!
