Liberty University Prof says homosexuality caused by toxins released from porn videos

Judith Reisman, a Professor at Liberty University, published a column in the right-wing conservative venue 'World Net Daily,' that was nothing short of bizarre.

Reisman blames homosexuality on what she calls 'erototixins,' which she says are mind-altering chemicals. She stated that these toxins are somehow emitted through pornography.

She cited a lecture that referred to pornography as a 'visual pheremone.' The lecture also put forth the idea that these visual pheremones rewire the brain, thus causing the viewer to become gay.

In an attempt to add validity to her argument, Reisman cited a case where these pheremones were used on male Gypsy Moths in order to prevent them from mating with their female counterparts. She states that this somehow correlates to the way watching pornography can make you catch the gay.

The lecture in question was delivered by a neurosurgeon from Texas named Donald Hilton, which focused on pornography and its relation to sexual orientation last September. He stated,

Pornography is a visual pheromone, a powerful 100-billion-dollar per year brain drug that is changing sexuality even more rapidly through the cyber-acceleration of the Internet. It is ‘inhibiting orientation’ and ‘disrupting pre-mating communication between the sexes by permeating the atmosphere’ and Internet.”

The title of his lecture was 'Changing the Stamp of Nature: Pornography Addiction, Neuroplasticity, and the ASAM and DSM Perspectives.' His talk also focused on topics such as brainwashing, etc.

Hilton commented about the paper which was the genesis of his lecture, stating,

We have for the first time obtained experimental confirmation that pre-mating communication between the sexes can be disrupted by permeating the atmosphere with an insect pheromone.

"Pornography is a visual pheromone, a powerful 100-billion-dollar per year brain drug that is changing sexuality. … It is ‘inhibiting orientation’ and ‘disrupting pre-mating communication between the sexes by permeating the atmosphere’ and Internet.”

Gypsy moth porn. Beware.

    If this was true, I'd be the gayest gay that ever gayed a gay.

    I believe the correct phrase is "Catch Teh Gay."

  • jeffision

    You need to wrap your body in tin foil and wear protective glasses when watching porn if you don't want to catch teh gay.

    So, the pheromone also makes male gypsy moths want to have sex with other male gypsy moths, right? Because surely this professor realizes there's a difference between "gay" and "asexual."

      The confusion is on Reisman (go to the WND site and search "gypsy moth" to find the article). Except for plopping "gay" and "homosexuality" randomly in the article, she nor the lecture or her other sources made the pornography-gay connection. She only time she referred to homosexuality directly was to imply that its acceptance is caused by sex education was using pornograghy to rewire students brains.

    The "professor" who delivered that twaddle should be fired for gross stupidity, and denied the vote in perpetuity on grounds of mental disease or defect.

    • colourmegone

      Don't forget she's a professor at "Liberty University" which is not known for its academic excellence.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mike.hughjass Mike Hugh-jass

    This "professor" seems a great candidate for the Church of Scientology. Her erototixins seem very similar to thetans.

    Professor? So there is fairy tale professors in US? "Liberty university", religion has nothing to do with liberty or libertarian views, should be called "Dogmatic university". USA was founded by heretic people who run away from Europe to "Land of the free"…

  • Chuck Salerno

    Considering that the first pornography I ever saw was of naked WOMEN from my father's Playboy stash, I have to discount her 'theory' as being anything but publicity seeking tripe.

    If that were true, I'd be the poster boy for the LGBT community!

    Hmmm, these are the kind of scientific conclusions you can draw when you're unimpeded by concepts like chemistry and cell biology

  • six_of_caprica

    I thought it was chicken that caused homosexuality.

  • James Cash

    Fire this 'professor' and then castrate her to be sure she can't reproduce

    > It is ‘inhibiting orientation’ and ‘disrupting pre-mating communication
    between the sexes by permeating the atmosphere’ and Internet.”

    So you'll be affected by it if you're even in the same room with pornography and not even looking at it?

    It's really scary that that specific speech was given by a practicing neurosurgeon – someone they allow to cut open people's skulls and do stuff with their brains, yet is that incredibly stupid.

    How do such STUPID people manage to become professors, of ANY kind ? Does they NOT have ANY standards at all in the USA anymore ?

  • flibberty gibbet

    I'm thinking of suing Liberty University over this article, when I read the title I laughed so hard I busted my gusset!

  • alan martens

    And that place is accredited?? By whom?

  • http://www.facebook.com/diane.yoder.16 Diane Yoder

    Believe it or not, that place is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. Clearly they have low standards in the South.

    "Erototoxins?" Sounds like a billion dollar industry if you could bottle it and sell it.
