This South Dakota Republican Is So Obsessed With Gay Sex He’s Begging Doctors To Condemn It

South Dakota state GOP Rep. Steve Hickey has a problem — he’s obsessed with anal sex. He’s especially obsessed with gay men having anal sex. In fact, Hickey thinks about gay men having anal sex so much that he wrote a desperate letter to the Argus Leader newspaper in which he begs the medical community to condemn it.

The Argus Leader has not published Hickey’s letter yet, but he posted it on his Facebook page for all to read. Apparently, he doesn’t mind embarrassing himself on social media. In response to a lesbian couple challenging the state’s ban on same-sex marriage, Hickey decided to reveal his obsession to the world.

Consider this an open letter to the medical and psychological communities in South Dakota. The subject is homosexuality, which is about to be a front-page topic for the next few years in our state. I’m asking the doctors who practice in our state, is the science really settled on this issue or is it more the case that you feel silenced and intimidated?

Actually, the medical and psychological communities are settled on this issue. Hickey, a pastor, obviously didn’t get the memo, but science has been out of the closet about homosexuality for decades.

In 1973, the American Psychiatric Association removed homosexuality from its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Psychiatric Disorders. The American Psychological Association declared that it was not a disorder in 1975. Furthermore, the American Medical Association policy prohibits discrimination against homosexuals, condemns so-called “conversion therapy” to turn gay people straight, and even opposes the lifetime ban on gay men from donating blood. Despite Rep. Hickey’s demand that medical authorities come forward to call gay sex unhealthy, the fact of the matter is that any kind of sex has risks, even sex between straight couples. All sexual activities carry a risk, which is why the medical community recommends using condoms and contraception when engaging in sexual intercourse. Of course, when issues do arise, doctors are there to treat them, but this doesn’t mean anything to Hickey. He believes there are doctors who will condemn gay sex in the name of health.

Certainly there are board-certified doctors in our state who will attest to what seems self-evident to so many: gay sex is not good for the body or mind. Pardon a crude comparison but regarding men with men, we are talking about a one-way alley meant only for the garbage truck to go down. Frankly, I’d question the judgment of a doctor who says it’s all fine.

Hickey sure does know a lot about anal sex between two men doesn’t he? He even knows which way the garbage truck goes. It’s too bad he doesn’t read his own Bible as much as he writes about gay sex. In Leviticus, gay sex may be considered a bad thing, but so is eating shellfish. Approximately seven million Americans are allergic to shellfish, but people still eat it every day. This is really no different than anal sex, except that when complications arise from doing either, doctors will gladly treat them, because that’s their job.

Doctors aren’t just going to start coming out of the woodwork to condemn something just because an anti-gay bigot demands them to do so. Science has already decided this issue. Are there risks in having anal sex? Yes, and health organizations even list what they are, but there are risks in having vaginal sex too. Any doctor will say the same thing. Physicians aren’t in the business of telling people what they can or can’t do in their own bedrooms, and they don’t differentiate between heterosexual sex and homosexual sex because the only difference is what sex organs are used, and how. The risks are all the same. All they can do is tell people what the risks are and how to be safe.

If it were up to conservatives, however, anal sex and oral sex would be banned and homosexual relations would also be outlawed. Fortunately, what people do in their private lives is protected by the Constitution. The only way people like Hickey can enforce his imaginary anti-sex laws is by placing a sex cop or surveillance camera in every bedroom across the country. This is something that an overwhelming majority of Americans would oppose. In short, people have anal sex and will continue doing so in the future regardless of any laws against it.

Hickey recently tried defending his crude and ridiculous letter by telling the Argus Leader that gay sex is comparable to letting eight friends “take a dump in your bed.” Seriously, how does Hickey know what it’s like to let eight friends “take a dump in your bed”? Surely, he must have personal experience to back up his claims, right? He was responding to Dr. Kevin J. Weiland, a Democratic candidate who countered Hickey’s letter with one of his own. Hickey asked for doctors to speak up and he got what he asked for. He just didn’t get the response he demanded. And then Hickey whined about it, which is why we all now have a mental image of Hickey’s friends having a poop party in his bedroom.

In the pantheon of conservatives who are overly obsessed with gay anal sex, Steve Hickey joins failed GOP presidential contender Rick Santorum and failed GOP Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli. All three men abhor anal sex, even when straight couples do it, but they just can’t get the image of two men doing it out of their minds and it makes them so angry and so frustrated. The three of them should get together and take their apparent frustrations out on each other. Perhaps they’ll feel better. But, as doctors will tell them, there are risks to consider and they should get protection first. And if they’re not that into each other, they could always have a poop party. Just ask Steve Hickey — he knows all about that, too.
