Ok, folks.

Smoking: choice.

Homosexuality: not a choice.


I also couldn't tell if they were trying to say that homosexuality is "dangerous" for the homosexuals or for their kids (Heather's "two mommies"). It was a horrible comparison, but I don't think logic is what they were going for.

How can being gay be harmful to anyone?

It harms Jesus and god of course. they just can't deal with it. And fundies of course because you know it is their job to make everyone conform.

More dangerous than smoking? How does this work? Do the 50-year-old married couples who sneak away into the Ramble for nostalgia's sake catch especially contagious and lethal forms of pneumonia?

I just can't even...That video :angry-banghead: :angry-banghead:

From a quick pubmed and google search, there is no Journal of Epidemiology (unless you are talking about the journal of the Japan Epidemiological Association). There is an American Journal of Epidemiology, a Journal of Epidemiology and Global Health, and a Journal of Clinical Epidemiology but no Journal of Epidemiology (and I doubt they read the Japanese version).

There are however several articles which do show that gay and lesbian men and women (particularly young men and women) are more likely to participate in risky behaviours (smoking, drinking, etc), but guess what??? It turns out that if young LGBT people live in an area with supportive religious community they are much less likely to engage in these behviours: Am J Public Health. 2012 Apr;102(4):657-63.

Well, yeah. Duh. Smoking might kill you, but at least you'll go to heaven. Whereas, if you're gay, you'll go to hell. If that's not dangerous, I don't know what is.

^^Here's an article I found that breaks down Janet Porter's B.S., including a link to the actual journal article she "cites." Props to Michael Ross for dispelling false fundie data and bringing Porter down about five pegs. :clap:

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.
