James Dobson's Patented Cure for the Gay


Matt Yglesias gets points for finding the funniest thing I've seen this week. James Dobson's advice on how to ensure your son doesn't catch The Gay:

Meanwhile, the boy's father has to do his part. He needs to mirror and affirm his son's maleness. He can play rough-and-tumble games with his son, in ways that are decidedly different from the games he would play with a little girl. He can help his son learn to throw and catch a ball. He can teach him to pound a square wooden peg into a square hole in a pegboard. He can even take his son with him into the shower, where the boy cannot help but notice that Dad has a penis, just like his, only bigger.

Too… many… jokes… choice… paralysis… kicking… in…

ADDENDUM: Via the folks at The Corner, I see this line is actually a passage Dobson approvingly quotes from a fellow traveler's unpublished manuscript, not the Dob's own original wisdom.
