This woman says she can ‘cure’ homosexuality with a suppository that kills ‘worms’

A Kuwaiti “academic” says she has found a cure for homosexuality and it may be the craziest theory ever put forward. LGBTQ people cannot be “cured” since there is nothing medically wrong.

Dr. Mariam Al-Sohel is described by the Jerusalem Post as an “anti-gay and anti-lesbian researcher” and the description seems apt based off an interview she gave to Scope TV. She says her suppository antidote is based off Islamic “prophetic medicine.”

“I discovered therapeutic suppositories that curb the sexual urges of boys of the third gender as well as the fourth gender, which is butch lesbians. They have excessive sexual urges,” she told the host.

“The sexual urge develops when a person is sexually attacked, and afterward it persists because there is an anal worm that feeds on semen,” she claimed. “This is science, and there is nothing to be ashamed of.”

Al-Sohel says her “medicine” works by “exterminating the worm that feeds on the semen.”  Asked how the suppository works for lesbians, she had a quick answer.

“The ingredients [for the cure] are the same (for both sexes) but I made them into different colors.”

Several American states and localities have banned “conversion therapy,” the rightwing Christian version of Al-Sohel’s cure. Medical officials have deemed a form of mental torture that doesn’t work.

Homosexuality is illegal in Kuwait and men found guilty can face extended prison sentences.
