In what can only be described as extremely bizarre, a self-published study claims that eating too much fatty food could result in one turning gay or transgender. No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, and yes, that is a very idiotic, not to mention, problematic statement.
According to Author Rita Strakosha, who claims to have “an M.P.S. degree in Clinical Psychology from Albanian University” (highly disappointing, hopefully, anyone who studied liberal arts would have more common sense than that), there is a connection between eating unhealthy food and being gay.
After self-publishing the e-book on Amazon which she later took down and published on her blog “due to controversy” and so there is “wider access”.
It claims: “Homosexuals… [often eat] large amounts of high glycemic index foods and fat, or eating an imbalanced diet, leaning toward carbohydrates. Some studies show an increased rate of obesity among homosexuals.”
“Gay men, lesbian and bisexual women report a higher odds of sugar-sweetened beverage consumption than straight men and women.
“Access to a high-calorie diet and alcoholic drinks was limited to the social elite circles in the past. Homosexuality as well appears to have been more frequent among that group.”
The paper ties homosexuality to fats, sugars and alcohol, proceeding to claim that cutting fatty food out of your diet can “prevent the return of homosexual attractions”. It argues that following a healthy diet with no sugar and sleeping adequately will ‘cure’ (cure, seriously?) homosexuality in an individual and prevents its return. Are we even in the 21st century?!?!
Honestly, I’ve never read such a trope of garbage in my life. My diet consists of a steady stream of junk food and I “haven’t turned gay yet”. Also, what about all those vegans who are gay? This argument has far too many flaws to even go into. Please stop the world, I want to get off.
