Responding to a new Surgeon General report that even one cigarette could spur fatal heart attacks in some people, the American Family Association hate group says that it’s time that the government issues similar warnings about gay sex. Because that first cock you suck can be the one that kills you.
What the surgeon general did not say but should have is that the same is true of homosexual behavior: the first act of gay sex can be the one that kills you. While drugs have been found to mitigate the damage done by HIV, there is no cure. Once someone contracts it, he has it for life, a life often tragically shortened by between eight and 20 years, according to the International Journal of Epidemiology. Smoking will cut six to seven years from the lifespan of the smoker, meaning a cigarette habit is less dangerous to human health and longevity than gay sex.
According to the Associated Press, “[T]here is no safe level of exposure to cigarette smoke.” Same goes for participation in gay sex – there is simply “no safe level of exposure.” If a case can be made that cigarette smoking should be made illegal, a far better case can be made for making homosexual sex contrary to public policy, as it was in every state in the Union until 1962, and in 49 states until 1972. It’s still against the law in 12 states, although the Supreme Court, in another egregious act of judicial activism, prohibited states from governing themselves in this matter in the Lawrence ruling of 2003.
The goal of the surgeon general’s office, since it can’t make smoking illegal, is to reduce the smoking rate from its current 20 percent to 12 percent by 2020. We currently have between two and four percent of the population engaging in gay sex. How about we ask the surgeon general to launch a crusade to reduce the gay sex rate from four percent to one percent by 2020? Says the surgeon general, in words that can and should be addressed to practicing homosexuals, “It’s never too late to quit but the sooner you quit the better.” In other words, the official administration policy on cigarette smoking is abstinence. Let’s make it the official government position on gay sex.
