Quote# 93163

A Minnesota resident speaking before the House Civil Law Committee offered a shockingly inaccurate testimony in an attempt to thwart the approval of same-sex marriage in the state.

Mike Frey, a "concerned" father and husband, spoke in front of the committee on Tuesday and cited Minnesota's sodomy law, struck down in 2001, which defined sodomy as both anal and oral sex. He attempted to argue that gay sex poses a danger to citizens of the state because it results in the spread of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).

He claimed that heterosexual sex could be safer because the vagina has a "barrier of cellular tissue that doesn't allow the sperm ... to penetrate the blood flow," but anal sex doesn't have such protections.

"When ejaculation occurs inside of a colon, it's highly absorbent material, the cells do not have a barrier for the sperm and those enzymes to enter into the blood flow," Frey said. "When the enzymes enter into the blood flow, and a continued, prolonged environment of that happens, these enzymes in the blood flow, it causes what we know as AIDS."

Frey's discussion of AIDS during a same-sex marriage hearing is striking because AIDS affects people of all genders, races and sexual orientations. The information shared by Frey is not only homophobic, it is also misleading.

Am I the only one who wonders how and why he came to be called to testify in the first place? Lets ignore the rest of the bullshit he spews. (And what does gay sex have to do with letting gays marry in the first place?)

This is what happens when someone is taught abstinence only sex education. They are taught and then repeat a lot of outright lies.

Somebody tell that man about bacteria and viruses.

"The information shared by Frey is not only homophobic, it is also misleading."
How can "information" be homophobic? Homophoby is an emotion (-phoby = fear) or in the broadest sense a social-political leaning. Information in and of itself can neither feel anything nor does information have an opinon, because it isn't a conscious thing.

Maybe he's the comic relief?

NO, no, no, AIDS is god smiting homos with disease for their sin. What are you, some kind of liberal with all your sciency atheist blabber?

Of course, the irony is that the level of ignorance and dishonesty displayed by Mike Frey only contributes to the spread of STIs.

Hang on, I thought sperm had magical healing properties that reduce the chances of cancer, like that other guy says!

@UHM: Poor writing. Information can't be misleading either, though its presentation can be. The author should have said his testimony was both homophobic and misleading.

Yeah, that colon wall, just paper thin, so I've heard. It's a wonder every single person ever to live didn't die of septicaemia. Vaginal penetration, on the other hand, never results in lethal infections.

It's both hilarious and frightening at these people's lack of intelligence when it comes to sexual biology. This is the same kind of thinking which makes them claim that a woman can't get pregnant if she is raped. And these are also the same people who want to replace all sex education with "don't have sex until you're married."

So much wrong. For starters HIV is NOT an enzyme it is a virus.

These types of guys keep talking about vaginas like they have some super powers. A vag can "shut that whole thing down" in the event of "legitimate rape" and now apparently they have special cellular barriers to keep out that HIV...

Is this a quack who thinks semen causes HIV and that it's not actually a virus? Seriously, what enzymes are causing AIDS?? Also gay men will continue to engage in sex whether they are married or not SO... Also does this mean there's no reason two women shouldn't wed...?

3/18/2013 6:51:15 AM

Seconded, Arctic Knight. This is what happens when you don't give people proper education on sex.

Lies, to quote a certain Congressman, straight from the Pit of Hell.

If this barrier exists, how come the virus is easier spread from man to woman, than from woman to man? Does the penis have an even better barrier?

What does gay sex have to do with gay marriage, btw? If anything, gay marriage might make gay people even more faithful. Couples who only have sex with each other don't get these "enzymes", regardless of genders involved, ya know.

Tell me he smokes. Oh please, oh please, oh PLEEEEEEEEASE tell me he smokes. The irony would be delicious.

@Doubting Thomas

And remember, these are the same people who think they're better qualified to teach kids about sex than some evil nurse or something.

Christians and the science of coming up with crazy explanations to trick themselves into believing the stuff they're supposed to believe.

Who is this guy?

The more I listen to these people, the more amazed I become at the vagina's capabilities.

3/18/2013 12:07:25 PM


Well, the female reproductive tract is effectively a deathtrap for sperm...

Of course, viruses aren't exactly sperm, now are they?

3/18/2013 12:13:51 PM


What the everloving fuck do enzymes have to do with AIDS?!

3/18/2013 10:11:39 PM


The information shared by Frey is not only homophobic, it is also misleading.

No, it's a lie. Have the balls to say that.

3/20/2013 3:49:41 AM


"shockingly inaccurate"

Now, now, this is not shocking. All homophobes are consumed with the hate of love to the point that their brains stop working.

3/20/2013 4:13:51 PM

Some random Homo sapiens

It is pretty sure that HIV derived from SIV (Simian Immunodeficiency Virus).
Mike has probably heard that and now denies the existence of HIV because it would be an example of evilution. Hence the nonsense with enzymes.

3/23/2013 3:10:40 AM


The last sentence is the greatest understatement I've ever heard.

5/7/2013 12:10:52 PM

Let´s forget that in Africa, heterosexual sex is the number one cause of AIDS spread, has this idiot realised that, if human anatomy worked the way he thinks it does women wouldn´t have the period?. PLEASE.
