The "ick" factor

I've been emailing one of you about what some of us call the "ick" factor.

You know, when people say something to indicate that their real problem with homosexuality is that it is icky. Sometimes you can just see them shudder a little.

I have a way of responding. I want to share. It's fun.

I tell them that I understand. There are lots of things that we find disturbing to think about. But finding something disturbing to think about has nothing to do with whether it is moral. Here's the proof:

Imagine that I am about to make you watch one of two videos. One is gay p*rn. The other is a home video of your parents having s*x. Which do you pick?


  1. Ha! That cracked me up! I'm going to use that if you don't mind.

  2. Almost hyperventilating with laughter. You are the best, Beth.

  3. I'll have to remember this one!

  4. Love it! That's great.

  5. HA HA HA

    That is so funny. I can just see the dumbfounded look on someone's face.

    Poor Baby R if he ever got asked that question. He'd have to say "What's the difference."

  6. That's fantastic reasoning and a hilarious example! Couldn't supress a giggle there...
