Book Claims 'Homosexuals Have Shortened Lifespans, Chronic Conditions, Lower Quality of Life'
This weekend right wing voters are attending the annual Values Voter Summit, hosted by the anti-gay hate groupÂ Family Research Council. PresidentÂ Donald Trump made historyÂ Friday morning by kicking off the conference with a Christianity-laden speech to attendees during which he promised them that now he's president, "We are saying 'Merry Christmas' again."
Like many conventions, there is ample memorabilia being distributed by vendors and activists.

From the Amazon description:
The HEALTH HAZARDS of HOMOSEXUALITY answers the question: "Why should we be concerned about homosexuality?" The mainstreaming and normalization of homosexuality has created a public health crisis affecting us all. Meanwhile, the media gives little attention to the broader crisis, and the medical authorities deliver mixed messages to those at high risk â€“ especially young people. There is an astoundingly disproportionate incidence of medical and psychological pathologies among homosexual men, lesbians, and bisexuals. Yet the general public knows little about the baneful nature of homosexuality and its associated addictions and behaviors that invite disease. This book brings together information from widely dispersed and hard-to-find sources, summarizing recent medical and psychological research in laymenâ€™s terms.
It also claims to cite CDC statistics, and offers up what we assume are some of the very reasons Mass Resistance is labeled a hate group:
Topics include: â€¢ Why homosexuality is a public health issue, and not just a private issue â€¢ The politicized medical and mental health establishments â€¢ The â€œborn gayâ€ myth: homosexuality is not innate â€¢ How many identify as â€œgayâ€, lesbian, or bisexual â€¢ The mental health issues: depression, anxiety, suicidality, substance use, partner abuse, and BDSM (bondage/sexual sadomasochism) â€¢ The self-harming lifestyles and sexual practices of homosexual men and lesbians â€¢ The disproportionate disease incidence among â€œgaysâ€, lesbians, and bisexuals â€¢ Why homosexuals have shortened lifespans, chronic conditions, lower quality of life â€¢ How HIV/AIDS is re-emerging as an epidemic among homosexual men â€¢ The â€œsafer sexâ€ lie and other mixed messages from the medical establishment â€¢ How the CDC is spreading false optimism on HIV drug treatments â€¢ Bisexuals have the highest incidence of pathologies â€¢ How lesbians and heterosexuals are imitating unsafe homosexual male practices â€¢ The psychological and medical issues of transgenderism â€¢ Child abuse: interventions supporting â€œtransgenderâ€ identities in youth.
In response to the mainstreaming of lies and hate, people on Twitter are responding by mocking the book's title, announcing they or others are "homosexual hazards."
