Work safe but not brain safe. And you thought the regular Fundies were bad.

The worst part is, I found myself actually trying to refute him with LOGIC! *rolls her eyes*

To be fair, some of what he says is true. Non-fermented soy does contain chemicals that mimic estrogen in the body and can cause weird health issues if you consume too much of it. And giving kids soy formula is a bad idea for any number of reasons.

On the other hand...what the fuck? Soy causes homosexuality? I kinda doubt Oscar Wilde had a lot of soy in his diet. Not to mention the fact that there is no correlation whatsoever between estrogen levels and homosexuality. And I still want to know how he figures excess estrogen would account for lesbians. Unless by "homosexuals" he means "gay men" because women just don't count?

I fail because I come from a state with major soy bean production and yet know nothing about soybeans. I do, however, know about estrogens and such hormones. Technically, they're androgens (I think. it's been a while since I've had that class) just like testosterone. In fact, they affect the body JUST LIKE TESTOSTERONE. In studies with rats, fetuses that received excess levels of estrogen became masculinized. Now, since only testosterone is keyed to start up the male reproductive tract, this left lots of baby female rats acting and developing like males.

With this theory, he should be explaining lesbians, not gay men. He's right, the baseline IS female. Too much of anything else can only masculinize, not feminize.

Take that, Fundie. SCIENCE PWNS ALL!
