The Times of India has done it again. Having long abandoned any pretense of journalistic integrity, here is the latest rubbish from our favorite go – to desi paper.
Under the cringe inducing headline “ Study links lesbianism to career” , the TOI quotes a dubious study from un-named NGOs in Chandigarh that : ( I am not making this shit up – this is a direct quote!)
A study by two NGOs to understand the nature of lesbian behaviour in the city has found that most women take to this alternative sexuality while staying in hostels of educational institutions or working at call centres and marketing companies
Apart from personal choice, the reasons for these women’s (sic) turning lesbian were found to be an abusive childhood or being widowed or divorced.
There is zero mention of genetic predisposition and makes the whole issue of homosexuality sound like a lifestyle choice as opposed to a congenital orientation.
This sounds like it was dictated by the far right – defense of marriage act types in the US …
Anyways, I matched their “checklist” against my personal history and:
- Stayed at hostel of educational institution : Check
- Working at call centers or marketing companies : Check
- Abusive childhood : No
- Widowed or Divorced : No
Does this mean there is a 50 % chance I am going to play for the other team ? But, but …I love Bruce Willis ..so that can’t be true? Can it ? Can it?
Who writes this crap?
