Must Be Something In The Water: Mayor Believes Town’s Tap Water Is Turning People Into HOMOSEXUALS



A mayor in Peru made some interesting claims recently about the quality of the water in his town. Huarmey Mayor Jose Benitez actually believes that the number of gay men in his town is directly connected to the water.  He says that there is something toxic in the water that is causing men to turn gay.

The mayor, noting high levels of Strontium in the tap water, says that the water comes from Tabalosos, a town where there are allegedly 14,000 gay men.

 “Unfortunately strontium reduces male hormones and suddenly we’ll be as Tabalosos, as other towns, where the percentages are increasing of homosexuality,” Benitez says.  “Young people have low self-esteem by this stigma."

Dr. Robert Castro Rodriguez, dean of the College of Pharmaceutical Chemistry of Lima, says that Benitez is wrong.  He says that strontium can lead to bone cancer, anemia and heart problems, but not homosexuality.
Bolivian President Evo Morales once blamed the injection of female hormones into chickens for the presence of homosexuality.  Morales then argued "and because of that, men who consume them have problems being men.”

The hormone issue might have some merit. It is worth researching in detail, rather making a generalization. There are researchers who specilaize in this research.

Such nonsense is to be expected from people who do not study science or the biology of the human body. These insane kind of people are usually living in fantasy and/or a semi-reality where belief in Demons, Angels, Gods, and all sorts of ridiculous other machinations is normal to them. There are at least two biological reasons why men are gay and a host of psychosocial reasons. If these leaders of nations and local areas are thinking and saying very stupid things like this, they should be immediately replaced, because they are showing obvious signs of just how detached from reality they are!

BUSLESS is a complete moron if he/she actually believes that...the stupidity of homophobes like this is staggering, if it were not so funny...to capitalize "homosexual" to draw more attention to it and at the same time mock LGBT persons, shows how black folks are in the Dark Ages when it comes to accepting non-heterosexual people in general. You would THINK that "intelligent" people would know enough to know not to stigmatize others after their OWN ancestors were tortured for 400 years and they themselves still catch Hell to this very second. You Negroes need to stop buying into stupid shit like "water makes you gay" or whatever this strontium argument is....accept people for what they are and mind you OWN damn business. Heterosexuals got too many issues of their own to worry about us gays...(why are YOUR men making babies and not caring for them? why are YOUR men in jail so bad? why are YOUR men running to white women because of the Angry Black Bitch Syndrome?)you heteros got too much on your plate to worry about what causes people to be gay...fix YOUR house, and we will worry about ours...
