Italian Scientitst Claims Vaccines Cause Homosexuality

vaccine_needle[1]A scientist in Italy is rallying against vaccinations, claiming they make people gay.

Nope, this isn’t a belated April Fool’s joke.

Alternative-medicine proponent Gian Paolo Vanoli told Vice (Translation via HuffPo):

The vaccine is introduced into the child, the child then grows and tries to find its own personality, and if this is inhibited by mercury or other substances present in the vaccine which enter the brain, the child becomes gay.

The problem will especially be present in the next generations, because when gays have children, the children will carry along with them the DNA of their parent’s illness.

Because homosexuality is a disease, even though the WHO has decided that it is not. Who cares! The reality is that it is so. Each vaccination produces homosexuality, because it prevents the formation of one’s personality. It is a microform of autism, if you will. You will see how many gays there will be in the next generation, it will be a disaster.

We’re not Jonas Salk, but if a chemical introduced into the body causes homosexuality, how can it be passed genetically?

Though Vanoli insists homosexuality is “an illness…that does not respect the order of life” he says gays can’t be blamed for their condition, and he supports same-sex marriage in heavily Catholic Italy.

Hey, that puts him one step ahead of the Pope, another weirdo with crazy ideas about human sexuality.

    Apparently there was a HUGE vaccination program in Antient Greece and during the writing of the Bible…who knew!

  • Polaro

    Massive dose of crazy. My homosexuality may be a birth defect, but it is not a disease.

  • MikeE

    what kind of “scientist” is he again?

    oh right! “alternative medicine”.
    you know, if “alternative medicine” worked, it would just be called “medicine”.

    It’s pretty pathetic that a “scientist” doesn’t even know that there’s no mercury in modern vaccines. And that the quantity present in older vaccines was so small that there was absolutely 0 chance of any dangerous effects.

    If this guy had a brain, he’d realize that gay parents don’t HAVE gay kids, and that most gay kids come from straight parents. what a maroon.

  • Captain proton

    so… all the autistic people are gay?

  • MikeE

    best line on one of the news sites reporting this “news” story:

    in the comments section

    1. “yeah, but if vaccines cause homosexuality, how come we have records of there being homosexuality in ancient Greece?”

    2. “dude.. one of their gods was called Mercury!”

    Would someone please go vaccinate Tom Hardy ASAP!!!

    True homosexuality naturally occurs as one of many forms of genetic “pruning” that keeps each species healthy. In this homosexuality is natural and DOES serve a useful purpose. Contrary to fundamentalist belief, being merely gay is not in and of itself deviant nor is it sick.

  • Charles

    He isn’t a scientist. He claims to be a journalist and to have a degree in nutrition from an unspecified American university. More worryingly, he’s an activist in the Movimento 5 Stelle (M5S), which won a third of the votes in the last Italian elections and has been invited to contribute to M5S conferences on health care. He also doesn’t ‘believe’ in AIDS, by the way…

  • 2eo

    About the level to be expected from someone who believes in homoeopathy, absolutely moronic to a man.

  • Charli Girl

    Hey can I get a vaccine for that anchor woman on HLN in the am? SHE IS HOT!! LMAO
    What a funny guy that italaian fella….

  • MuscleModelBlog.com

    This guy is a scientist? A pseudo scientist, perhaps. Every day I think that I’ve heard the most absurd thing I have ever heard in my life…and then I hear something even stranger.


    What can be expected from Italian? he is a fucking Catholic. AdamHomo

    @Charles175: I would suggest not pruning, so much, as serving a different evolutionary function.

    If you want to look at it purely from an evolutionary perspective, human-type social animals need members of the society who are not (automatically/in a pre-technical setting) likely to breed. It’s unlikely to be coincidence that through much of human history, the greatest artists have often been homosexual – as have the greatest warriors. Not being preoccupied with children, homosexuals are more likely to have leisure for thought and composition, leading to the flowering of art and philosophy that advanced society in such advantageous ways.

    As for war: it’s worth noting that one of the most fearsome, and feared, military units in all of history was made up entirely of male couples, on the not-unlikely basis that a man who fights alongside his beloved will fight all the better, because he doesn’t want to look bad in front of his beloved, and as a cohesive unit, because they will want to ensure one another’s survival.

    Autism, wow, we’ve been called many things, but this is a first. Tighten your chin straps boys & gir’s, we are vaccinated with homo.

  • NormdePlume

    What exactly is a “scientiTst”? A really smart straight guy who likes Hooters?

    It is not possible for homosexuality to be caused by a vaccine, because of the fact that homosexuality has been a fairly consistent phenomenon throughout recorded history at the rate of approximately 10 % of the population at any given point in time, and this is true both before and after the introduction of vaccines. Therefore, the introduction of vaccines been no real factor in the number or frequency of homosexual children born, so it can not be linked to vaccines. His methodology is way off. Vaccines have recently come under fire for being the cause of quite a number of other diseases, but he is way off base when he comes to this theory of his. Homosexuality is not a disease, it is an alternate way of being, of expression of one’s affection, and since it appears that the larger number of homosexuals do not have children of their own, his idea of them passing the altered genetic information, altered by the vaccines, in his theory, is patently untrue, as a majority of Gays and Lesbians choose not to have children, but more often adopt children when they do have children. Their so-called “altered” genetics are not transmitted to children, so it is not being transferred on and causing more homosexuality in more children. The standard 10 % figure still applies. There is no more chance that the children of Gays and Lesbians will be Gay or Lesbian that those who are born to heterosexual parents. After all, most of us were born to heterosexual parents, not to Gay or Lesbian parents (though it would have been nice, I must say, I would personally have preferred it to have been that way). But his theory is way off base and just a little level-headed thinking shows that it makes no sense at all.

    I should have added to my comment above that as a scientist, I am deeply ashamed of any scientist who would come up with such a hair-brained idea and actually publish such nonsense and try to pawn it off on the public like this. Such complete and utter nonsense!

  • EngiNerd


    As a scientist I am also deeply ashamed. Hopefully not legitimate journal or funding source will accept his “research.” Giving this man any attention is a horrible idea. He should be shunned from the light and regarded as a quack. Don’t forget in the article he also calls HIV a myth.

    There is not evidence vaccines cause autism or any other disease. People like this put everyone at risk. As less and less people get vaccinated the more people who can get sick and spread disease to those who couldn’t get vaccinated(i.e. herd immunity).
