The author comments on a blog by American Family Association blogger Ray Rooney, Jr. who called homosexuals perverse for being public about their sex lives. She argues that Rooney does not have real, actual science or medicine to back his opposition of homosexuality as a normative lifestyle. She also finds that Rooney has demonized gays and lesbians by reducing their relationships to some kind of perverted animal instinct.
