Masculine Men Do Not Have Gay Sex, Peter LaBarbera Claims

Peter LaBarbera of the Americans for Truth about Homosexuality (AFTAH) made some eyebrow-raising claims about masculinity within the gay community as part of a discussion with former Infowars reporter David Ortiz this week.

As Right Wing Watch first reported, Ortiz claimed that widespread acceptance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights (LGBT) represented "the death of the American male" because "you cannot be a masculine nation and support homosexuality."

LaBarbera, who is no stranger to anti-LGBT remarks, then suggested Chicago's International Mr. Leather event was an example of "faux masculinity" and "a homosexual version of masculinity," before concluding: "Masculine men do not have sex with other men."

Earlier this year, LaBarbera argued that Starbucks had "sold its corporate soul...to the homosexual agenda" after viewing the coffee giant's new ad for the Teavana Oprah Chai Latte, which featured what he described as "an alphabetic homoerotic embrace.”

He also slammed openly gay NFL recruit Michael Sam in an interview with Voice of Christian Youth America's Vic Eliason, saying the former Missouri defensive lineman and first-team All-American is "deluded" and must "become an ex-gay, an ex-homosexual.”
