Tofu = Gay

So somebody needs to come over and push my mouth shut because I literally cannot believe this article:

Soy is feminizing, and commonly leads to a decrease in the size of the penis, sexual confusion and homosexuality. That's why most of the medical (not socio-spiritual) blame for today's rise in homosexuality must fall upon the rise in soy formula and other soy products.

Thanks to The Daily Dish for this enlightenment. Tell you the truth, if this is true then I'd happily feed my son tofu! I've always said that I'd be thrilled to have a gay child because at least I'd know that the child would grow up in a completely loving and accepting home and hopefully will then be better prepared with our support to face the world of homophobes and people prejudice against gay people.

Seriously, though, people have completely taken their fear of homosexuals a bit too far with this tofu bit. Gimme a break!

You have got to be kidding. This man is an IDIOT. I grew up sharing a room with a gay man (well, he was a gay kid back then) I'm, of course, talking about my brother, who was one of these people who always knew they were gay. Funny thing is...we seldom EVER ATE SOY PRODUCTS growing up.

IDIOT. IDIOT. IDIOT. Damn....This stuff really makes me made. IDIOT,

Oh, I know, Angie, I couldn't believe it when I read it!

Brett, yeah, it's very odd reasoning. One of my cousins is gay and granted, as Chinese, we did eat tons of tofu, but how does that explain how one of my cousins is gay and his brother is not?

What makes me saddest is that people are actually so afraid of being gay or their children being gay that 1.) someone would come up with this convoluted idea and 2.) You know some people have cut tofu and soy products from their diet and their children's diet.

Fear can be a very evil being.

What an idiot!! Mom's have been feeding babies soy formula for 40 years. We would have a lot more homosexuality, if the that were the case. My son who is 3 drinks soy milk and had soy formula. I have no doubt of his preferences. Who cares what anyone's sexual preference is anyway? If it is not hurting anyone, it is no one's business anyway.
