From the "I Kid You Not" Department

How far would you go to save your son from the "evils" of homosexuality? I guess as far as jail.

Dan Savage, who filled in for Andrew Sullivan last week, shared some interesting information found on Dr. James Dobson's website. He includes some information from a Dr. Joseph Nicolosi and it goes a little like this:

Meanwhile, the boy's father has to do his part. He needs to mirror and affirm his son's maleness. He can play rough-and-tumble games with his son, in ways that are decidedly different from the games he would play with a little girl. He can help his son learn to throw and catch a ball. He can teach him to pound a square wooden peg into a square hole in a pegboard. He can even take his son with him into the shower, where the boy cannot help but notice that Dad has a penis, just like his, only bigger.

So let me get this straight (no pun intended): if you shower with your son and show him your wang, that will make him straight?

I really can't believe Dr. Dobson is basically supporting having grown men shower with their sons. I mean, aren't there some laws against this?

You can look at this and laugh, but there is also something sad about this. These people are so afraid of homosexuality that they will go to any length, like being accused of sexual molestation, to protect their kid.

It's bizarre and laughable Dennis.

I accept that Americans are too hung up about even the slightest bit of nudity (though it's odd to hear it from the Theocracy Brigade). That said, not being freaked out about seeing your dad's or brother's private parts is an entirely different proposition than showering with them. I don't think showering together is necessarily molestation, but it's better just to avoid the situation in the first place. But it makes you wonder why a dad showering with his son doesn't raise any eyebrows but two men or two women in love with each other is the end of the world.

Sounds like Dr. Joseph Nicolosi and Dr. Dobson need some help from PFOXS.
