This is a question Controversial Beliefs

Some mugs still think the MMR injection gives children autism (it doesn't), while others are of the belief that we're ruled by billionaire lizard people. Tell us about views outside the mainstream which people go glassy eyed if you bang on about them (Your grandad's a racist - no need to tell us, thanks)

asthma - makes you gay
My mother is of that quaint war time generation who have never quite understood political correctness. Racism or discrimination is bad of course but drawing attention to someone's religion or background then pigeon-holing them along the lines of a 1970s sitcom is order of the day. Examples:

She has nothing against the jews particularly but while growing up every 10th person who appeared on telly was outed by my mother, "he's jewish you know."

Nowadays the obsession is "homosexuals" my mother does not like to call people gay because "they have hijacked that word". As a family we now all play spot the gay and like to point out to mum that "he's a homosexual you know".

Anyway, my sister split up with her husband of 20 years recently and, long story short, he has now in his mid 40s come out as gay and lives with bloke. My mum loves her (ex) son in law so has had a hard time coming to terms with it. She's striving for a reason for it and here it is: son in law has ashtma and has been taking inhalers for 30 years. There's obviously something in them - some sort of hormone - that builds up in your system and turns you into a homosexual. It's true because my gay friend is also asthmatic and on inhalers. I'm not sure she should publish her findings justy yet (but maybe that MMR gives you autism doctor will take up the cudgels!)
