Separating the man from the soy

Jim RutzAn amazing proclamation from a column by James Rutz (pictured), chairman of Megashift Ministries and founder-chairman of Open Church Ministries, titled, “Soy is making kids ‘gay’”. Yep, apparently it’s just that simple folks, Mr Rutz blazes on without nary a mention of sources or anything resembling science, but I’m sure those things will just fall into place. Here’s the gist of his commentary, but feel free to read it yourself from the link above.

SoyThere’s a slow poison out there that’s severely damaging our children and threatening to tear apart our culture […] The dangerous food I’m speaking of is soy. Soybean products are feminizing, and they’re all over the place. You can hardly escape them anymore. […] 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. **(Most babies are bottle-fed during some part of their infancy, and one-fourth of them are getting soy milk!) Homosexuals often argue that their homosexuality is inborn because “I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t homosexual.” No, homosexuality is always deviant. But now many of them can truthfully say that they can’t remember a time when excess estrogen wasn’t influencing them.

mustardAs you can see, irrefutable (errr…irresponsible?) proof! Of course there’s no mention about how lesbians come to be, but my sneaking suspicion says that it’s Dijon Mustard. What other use can there be for it? As for anyone ordering out for Chinese tonight, they can rest easy because…

P.S.: Soy sauce is fine. Unlike soy milk, it’s perfectly safe because it’s fermented, which changes its molecular structure. Miso, natto and tempeh are also OK, but avoid tofu.

Ah, so soy sauce won’t give you the gay, so it’s not all bad news! I stumbled across this nugget thanks to Right Wing Watch, but have since expanded to take in some of the better titles being given this newly stated information which includes, It’s the Soy, I Tell Ya to Soy milk will give you teh ghey or my personal favorite Gay soy conspiracy revealed! My title was the top I came up with out of six, so I feel I did my best. Meanwhile back in reality the best scientific debunking comes from a commentary from the editors of Scientific American on the topic. Hmmm, I’ll never look at my vegetarian friends the same again! {sarcasm}
