Gay Sex is Like Taking a Dump in Your Bed, Says Lawmaker

steve-hickey-south-dakota.jpgRemember Steve Hickey? If you need a refresher, he's the evangelical pastor and Republican state representative from South Dakota who made headlines last week when he wrote an appalling letter to the editor calling gay sex a "one way alley for the garbage truck."

Yeah, that guy.

In his letter, Hickey implored medical and psychological professionals in the state to "come out of the closet" and speak out against anal sex. Instead, Dr. Kevin Weiland -- a Democrat and one-time political candidate -- responded with a letter of his own, calling Hickey's bogus claims claims "sick," "crude," and "hurtful and entirely wrong."

Yesterday, in an interview with the Argus Leader (the newspaper where he submitted his initial hate-filled letter), the pastor continued his vile harangue against "gay sex." And believe it or not, he managed to truly outdo himself in the vulgarity department, outrageously likening anal sex to allowing multiple people to poop in your bed and then sleeping in it -- for a year.


Watch, after the jump (skip to 21:20 for Hickey's disgusting comment).

You heard that right, folks:

"[H]ere's what I'd like to ask Dr. Weiland: do you tell your patients to wash their hands before they eat? Why? Because you touch a doorknob and you don't want to get it inside your body. I hesitate to get crude again, but Dr. Weiland, is it OK for, you know, eight of your friends that you're in love with to take a dump in your bed and then you can sleep in it all year long?"

Holy desperate for attention, Batman! The image of someone wallowing around in a bed full of shit is so disturbingly vivid that I can't help but wonder how much of Pastor Hickey's spare time is spent watching hardcore scat porn. (He's clearly not actually watching run-of-the-mill gay porn or having anal sex himself, because that's just not how that all goes down.)

Rep. Hickey clearly has a severe case of Gay Hysteria: he can't talk or apparently even think about gay people without automatically thinking about them having sex -- and not just any kind of sex, but one of the most extreme, fringe, rarely-performed sexual activities in either the heterosexual or homosexual repertoire. Dude's got some serious issues.

How many hours of research do you think have gone into Rep. Hickey's ordurous, offensive statements? Do you think he's hiding any poop-covered skeletons in his closet?

UPDATE, 6:45 P.M. EDT: David Badash over at the (GLAAD Award-winning!) blog The New Civil Rights Movement reports that Rep. Hickey is also spewing out homophobic bile on Twitter. Ripping a page out of the Paul Cameron playbook, Hickey parrots the false claim that gay men don't live as long as straight men:


Hickey's assertion is such an egregious lie that it was even refuted by the authors of the very study he cites. But this is a guy who equates anal sex with rolling around in a bed full of poo -- clearly, facts don't matter.
