Swiss Politician Blames Gay Suicide On Incontinence

New Next Now reports:

During a debate on funding for sex ed, Zurich city council member Daniel Regli lashed out at Lust und Frust (“Pleasure and Pain”), a site that is supported by the city’s education department. Regli complained the site promoted promiscuity and homosexuality, but didn’t lay down the “fact” that “homosexuals with multiple partners take their lives between the ages of 30 and 40… because their anal muscle is not holding up as it should. ”

Regli has had to rescheduled appearances to avoid critics, some of whom have called for his resignation. In a statement, the progressive-minded Young Socialists said if Switzerland’s hate crime law included homophobic statements, he’d be up on charges.

Regli is a member of the Swiss People’s Party (SVP), a right-wing populist political party with strong Christian leanings. Claiming a doctor friend told him about this startling statistic, he told the news show 20 Minuten, “I said Saturday what nobody wants to hear.”

Yet another idiot who feeds on the assumption that all, or very nearly all, gay men engage in receptive anal sex. I'd have no problem if it were true but my experience has shown me that it's very far from being accurate. However, it is still quite a general belief - witness just about all the jokes and passing derogatory comments referring to gays. Also, it's hardly surprising that this fella is one of a Christian-inclined party. I'd like to hear one, just ONE, of these arse-obsessed preachers sermonising women (and there must be millions of them worldwide) on not allowing themselves to be anally penetrated for the same reason. I'm waiting.
