Soy Loco

WorldNetDaily writer Jim Rutz has found the enemy… and it is soy:

There’s a slow poison out there that’s severely damaging our children and threatening to tear apart our culture. The ironic part is, it’s a “health food,” one of our most popular.

Now, I’m a health-food guy, a fanatic who seldom allows anything into his kitchen unless it’s organic. I state my bias here just so you’ll know I’m not anti-health food.

The dangerous food I’m speaking of is soy. Soybean products are feminizing, and they’re all over the place. You can hardly escape them anymore. …

Soy is feminizing, and commonly leads to a decrease in the size of the penis, sexual confusion and homosexuality. That’s why most of the medical (not socio-spiritual) blame for today’s rise in homosexuality must fall upon the rise in soy formula and other soy products. (Most babies are bottle-fed during some part of their infancy, and one-fourth of them are getting soy milk!) Homosexuals often argue that their homosexuality is inborn because “I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t homosexual.” No, homosexuality is always deviant. But now many of them can truthfully say that they can’t remember a time when excess estrogen wasn’t influencing them.

Now, soy may be responsible for lots of things–chief among them, bland high-protein foods–but somehow I doubt widespread male homosexuality is one of them. Nor does this theory also explain the apparent rise in female homosexuality in recent decades… but I’m sure Rutz has a theory involving trans-fatty acids or something for that.

Elsewhere, Steven Taylor rightly gives this article the mocking it deserves, although Jason Kuznicki may be the exception that proves the rule.

    Some things are so insanely stupid they cannot be adequately parodied.

    However, I would just like to note that when I click on the link to the WND column, at the very bottom, there is a generated advertising link to

    Is there some kind of study for this, or is it just speculation? Sounds awfully farfetched, and kind of fearmongering-makes me wonder where Fred Phelps is.

    Soy is hard to digest. Much better the protein shake.
