Kinda reminds me of a joke I once heard:

Because his __________ tastes like __________.

This should be fun:

Let's do a little math, shall we?

First time I knew I liked guys: 11 years old
First time I did anything with a guy: 19 years old
First serious boyfriend: 23 years old
First time trying soy anything: 26 years old

Yeah... his logic holds up... (rolls eyes)

Soy didn't make me gay, but I do hate those SoyJoy commercials--"fortified with optimism". Not only is the commercial dumb, but WTF is the slogan supposed to mean??

The headline is written for shock value, but there is some credence to the growing school of thought among the health community that soy has many health risks to it, and the estrogen isoflavones could very well have a conceivable impact on the sexual development of infants.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/food/Story/0,,1828158,00.html

Even the UK is starting to come around to the risks processed soy presents. It's not implausible to reflect on it.

Interesting article. Perhaps a bit off the deep end, but that makes it entertaining.

Luckily I have protection. I have a soy allergy!

I was not lactose tolerant as a baby and was fed soy formula. I turned out straight. Therefore I have killed this author's theory. IMHO, I think this guy's article earns the stupid opinion piece of the week award.

Rather linear thinking and illogical, isn’t it? The author, nor any of the scads of research that has been cited, doesn’t make a causal correlation saying that if you have soy formula you’d become gay.

It’s simply saying that there could be a correlation. Given the endocrine system, a veritable ‘overdose’ of estrogen due to soy milk (both the UK Guardian and this article cited something akin to 5 birth control pills’ worth) means it’s entirely possible that there could be some consequence.

Regardless of this individual item, there are many demonstrable adverse impacts associated with processed soy. That alone should scare the hell out of everyone, really. We eat far too much in the way of processed foods—soy, carbs, sugars, starches, preservatives, you name it.

David Sedaris did mention in his latest book that he thought a particular brand of Japanese Soy Snacks did taste "vaguely of penis". Now we have the explanation apparently.  Smile

btw, if you haven't read or heard his bit on going to Tokyo of all places to quit smoking - you should. It's one of the funniest things ever. It's from his latest book, "When You Are Engulfed in Flames."

For every negative of soy there are plenty of other benefits. Soy is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids and DHA. The phytoestrogen effect is still extremely inconclusive. Some studies say it might increase your risk for cancer but others say it might decrease it. One thing is for certain, it won't make you gay. But I am not an unbiased source since I work for a very large agribusiness that processes soy in the soybean capital of the world.

Not that I believe the claims of the author above, but have you ever eaten anything processed from the supermarket, bread for example commonly has soy flour in it, I don't think it is possible to reach 26 years and never had something with soy in it.

I am not sure ingesting phytoestrogen (or testosterone) makes much difference in blood levels of the hormone.

Estrogen is currently being used by Urologists to stimulate the production of testosterone in the 50-plus male crowd, as my fellow boomers plan to live forever.
