And we’re lucky, Dennett, that Fred Shirley had the foresight last night to screenshot Dr Mehmet Yildiz’s own words in support of the incredibly homophobic writer — his clear assertion that the article does not “discriminate.”

I’d post the screenshot itself, but I’ve been told Medium prohibits that, so I will abide by their rules. But here is the text of Mehmet’s extreme homophobia:

Nua. Even though my findings from the scientific literature disagree with your content, I appreciate your due diligence for pointing out that this story does not discriminate against sexual preference of individuals.

Writer. Runner. Marine. Airman. Former LGBTQ and HIV activist. Former ActUpNY and Queer Nation. Polyglot. Middle-aged, uppity faggot.
