Hi-Larious Hy-Pocrisy

Sorry for not getting this up sooner, but it's been a busy weekend. Let us just say that the last thing I remember was walking into Macy's to look at new towels.....and everything else is a blank, right up until we came to with paintbrushes in our hands and a redecorated pair of bathrooms.

Anyway, Matt Foreman, of NGLTF fame, whining (as we reported last week) about the possibility of un-gaying babies in utero:
As Matt Foreman from the Task Force put it, “It’s not playing with the number of toes you have; it’s really manipulating your very essence. So many people see gay people only in terms of sexual behavior, as opposed to what sexual orientation is really about, which is how you fit into the world. I don’t want to get mushy, but it’s about your soul.”

Uh huh. But a few weeks before that:
Any woman needs to be able to terminate a pregnancy when her life will be degraded on account of it, no matter her sexual orientation, no matter how she became pregnant.

This is about much more than access to abortion, as important as that is. It is about who controls our bodies and our sexualities. Reproductive freedom and gay rights are inextricably intertwined.

So, to summarize:
  1. Babies in utero are beings with souls
  2. It is awful and evil to change the sexual orientation of those babies, as it is an affront to their souls.
  3. Killing these babies, however, is no affront to their souls at all, and is actually a good thing, an expression of "freedom" that supports "gay rights".
Being straight is many things, not all of them pleasant, but I doubt even the most hardcore queen would choose death over it, as Mr. Foreman seems to prefer.

Unless, of course, one's being gay is really the only thing they have going for them.....
