Poppers and lubricant are ‘God’s way of telling you gay sex is unnatural’

The British journalist Rod Liddle has taken it upon himself to say that poppers and lubricant are “God’s way of telling you that… [gay sex] is unnatural and perverse.”

On the heels of the UK government’s ballyhooed ban on amyl nitrites of every stripe — which found MP Crispin Blunt revealing himself to be a poppers user during the final debate — the associate editor of The Spectator has rattled off a nasty little article which includes lines like:

“I’m astonished to find that it’s proposing to be banned and, frankly, so were many other gay men.

“Did we really have to hear all about Crispin Blunt’s sex life?”

“I would have thought that the requirement for amyl nitrate to relax the sphincter muscle and lube to accommodate entry was God’s way of telling you that what you’re about to do is unnatural and perverse. Or your body’s way of telling you – your call. So eeeeuw.”

When the bill becomes law in April, selling poppers — or even offering them to somebody — could land you seven years in jail.

In case there was any room for misunderstanding, Liddle says he’s all for the poppers ban, because they’re “very bad for you.”

He suggests Blunt and other gay men use a crowbar instead.
