Holsinger scrutiny goes more mainstream

by Jeremy Hooper

 Pr News Archives 2003 Dec2003 03-12 Holsinger Health ServicesSo after a week of growing gay antipathy for the anti-gay/pro"ex-gay stances of surgeon general nominee Dr. James Holsinger, ABC News reported today that the Bush appointee is likely to face an extremely tough confirmation from the Senate Health Committee (which includes, among its members, Ted Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Chris Dodd).

So kids, don't jump to any conclusions should you hear in the coming days that a "Holsinger got borked." After all, in this tabloid culture, it may sound like nothing more than a gossipy story involving Courtney Love (Hole singer) and a wild night of partying. In actuality, however, it will instead be proof that in this day and age of unprecedented access, the gay community is going to unapologetically hold each and every potential government figure accountable for every wrong that they've foisted about us upon the American public. That's not a threat against anyone or any group -- it's a threat against the ugly, mean-spirited bias that has been directed towards us for far too long!

**And don't forget to read the controversial paper (pdf) that Holsinger wrote on homosexuality in 1991. A sample:

"...the logical complementarity of the human sexes has been so recognized in our culture that it has entered our vocabulary in the form of naming various pipe fittings either the male fitting or the female fitting depending upon which one interlocks within the other. When the complementarity of the sexes is breached, injuries and diseases may occur as noted above."
