7 Insane Right-Wing Reactions to Gay Rights Gains

1. A life sentence?!?

The African nation of Uganda has faced sharp criticism from the international community for permitting the killing of a gay man (he was bludgeoned to death), which could soon be legal under Uganda’s proposed anti-homosexuality bill. (The country’s version of Rolling Stone also published a call to hang homosexuals, and then listed 100 people’s names.)

2. Crying apocalypse.

Perhaps the most predictable argument against marriage equality, but one that right-wingers insist on using anyway, is that marriage equality will make us all die. And no, I’m not referring to the marriage-equality-will-cause-the-death-of-human-species-due-to-lack-of-reproductive-sex argument (although they’re fond of that one, too). I mean the argument in which we all die--soon.

3. Sounds a lot like eugenics...

Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association has a bold new idea about how to interpret emerging genetic explanations for homosexuality, which--for anyone with basic knowledge of history--is going to sound a whole lot like eugenics. His theory?

“Homosexual children, on this theory, are born evolutionarily and genetically disadvantaged. They have been overexposed or underexposed to testosterone because something has gone wrong in the process of genetic transmission. In other words, they are the product of a genetic abnormality at best, a birth defect at worst,” Fischer writes on his blog.
