Homosexuality in microscopic parasites
Schistosomes or “blood flukes” are microscopic parasites who live out their adult lives in permanent mated pairs.
Usually, the thread-like female lives in a groove along the male’s boat-like body.
Sometimes, however, two males will pair up. One takes on the female role, staying smaller and thinner, but technically remains male and the two will never reproduce. They just float together in the host’s blood, soaking up nutrients.
This makes them significantly less harmful, because it’s the eggs of a mated pair that make the host extremely sick. If you had gay worm couples in your bloodstream, you might never notice at all. Gay blood flukes are chill blood flukes.
If you separate them, the two males will search for one another and rejoin as soon as possible.
"Gay cure" was approved today in Brazil.
Yes, you did read that right! The Brazilian Human Rights Committee approved today something they call “the gay cure”. It is still a project so, in other words, it still needs to be approved by two other committees in order to become a law.
We were taught that Brazil was a secular state all our lives, even though we knew Christianity outweighs other religions. But that is not true at all. We live in a Christian dictatorship. The president of our Human Rights Committee, Marco Feliciano, someone that should defend minorities, is a known for being a RACIST HOMOPHOBE evangelical pastor. They thought if they approved this while those other protests were going on, we wouldn’t notice it. But we do. We know what’s up AND WE ARE ENRAGED.
This project is about letting psychologists and psychiatrists “act on homosexuality” and help homosexuals “find the cure”. They also say being against this project makes us homophobic, because “we should let the homosexuals choose to be cured.”
Homosexuality is not a disease, we are not in the 1200s and this is horrific. Spread the news, don’t let them think we are distracted!
