Linda Harvey: Reading Queerty Makes Kids Gay

In the hallowed groves of right-wing nuts, Linda Harvey holds a special place. The Mission: America founder has taken it upon herself to protect children by telling that that gay is not OK because we all know what a self-esteem builder that is. Her latest bit of advice to kids: don’t visit gay news sites because you might turn gay.

“Homosexual-themed pornography is extremely accessible to young people if they ever visit any websites covering the gay agenda as news,” says Harvey in a broadcast. “For instance, if your child was doing a report on same-sex marriage just researching the political issue and visiting sites that are sympathetic to the social and political goals of the homosexual movement may quickly bring them in touch with explicit images because many of the homosexual news blogs have soft-porn gay dating sites or worse as ads.”

And of course, Harvey adds, kids are susceptible to sexual feeling “and may mistake these for the pervasive fiction of some inborn gay identity.” Because we all know that heterosexuality is such a fragile thing that the mere image of a shirtless hunk can vaporize it in seconds. Of course, if you’re reading this, you probably knew that already.
