Kuwaiti researcher says homosexuality is caused by anal worm, claims she’s invented a cure

Sometimes you just read news reports and all you can do is scratch your head and wonder.

The Jerusalem Post spotted this interview with Kuwaiti based researcher Mariam Al-Sohel. It’s fair to say that she’s not a supporter of the LGBTI community.

In a TV interview, Al-Sohel declared that males who have sex with other males are a third gender, while butch lesbians belong to a fourth gender. Both, in her view, are obsessed with having sex.

Al-Solhel also says that gay people have been attacked by an anal worm that feeds on semen.

“This is science, and there is nothing to be ashamed of,” Al-Solhel said. “The sexual urge develops when a person is sexually attacked, and afterward, it persists because there is an anal worm that feeds on semen.”

Al-Sohel said her inventions of suppositories “cures those urges by exterminating the worm that feeds on the semen.” She added, “Bitter foods increase masculinity” and “the ingredients [for the cure] are the same (for both sexes) but I made them into different colors.”

The German Green Party politician and LGBT expert, Volker Beck, reportedly spoke to The Jerusalem Post, saying, “The cure for homosexuality is popular among religious fundamentalists. It is quackery and charlatanry. Such therapies and their apologists must be warned. Whether it is Al-Sohel’s suppositories or from Catholic doctors in Germany, it is hocus pocus that reveals much about the mental state of these people.”

LGBT and human rights campaigner, Peter Tatchell told the Post: “This takes gay conversion therapy and quack medicine to new heights of absurdity. Anal worms that feed on sperm and make men gay? Foods that make them masculine and straight? This is the most bizarre homophobic nonsense that I have heard in ages. On a sinister level, it is another outrageous Islamic-inspired attempt to eradicate same-sex desires. This academic is mirroring failed Nazi attempts to cure homosexuality. The fact that Muslim broadcasters take this junk pseudo-science seriously shows how dogmatic religion is the enemy of knowledge, truth and human rights.”

Homosexuality is dealt with harshly in Kuwait with long prison sentences for those who are convicted. In 2017, the country deported over 70 people found to be homosexual. Also, in 2017, Kuwait’s National Cinema Company banned a gay scene from the Disney movie, Beauty and the Beast.

    You know, when I first saw this headline, all I could do was laugh. And even now, all I still can do is laugh at the astounding stupidity of humans that’d make someone decide to open their eyes and lie to themselves.

    The woman is simply making economic sense though on a fraudulent level. She identifies a need and finds a way of making money through it but in her case, she intends to make money without providing a solution.
    She should research further.
