According To This Republican Who Is 100% Not A Scientist, Gay Sex Causes Immune System Failure And Ultimately, AIDS

Bob Frey is a longtime resident of Norwood Young America, Minnesota, who is running for a seat in the Minnesota House of Representatives.

He tried to explain same-sex marriage to his constituents, as well as how AIDS comes to be, but he is completely off the mark with his explanation.

From Minn Post:

When you have egg and sperm that meet in conception, there’s an enzyme in the front that burns through the egg. The enzyme burns through so the DNA can enter the egg. If the sperm is deposited anally, it’s the enzyme that causes the immune system to fail. That’s why the term is AIDS – acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.

Which is completely not supported by the scientific community. It is, however, a theory proposed by Mike Frey (his son), during a debate over same-sex marriage. TC mark
