Heterosexual Agenda: The Opposite of Mamas’ Boys

September 13th, 2010

One of the more preposterous stereotypes about gay men is that they are in some way “too close” to their mothers. Joseph Nicolosi, one of the founders of the National Association for the Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) has built his career on the theory that too-close mothers and too-distant fathers make gay men.

It’s such a shame that some of us were close to our mothers. Maybe we could have benefited from having a role model like this guy:

Steve Molin, 58, a self-employed contractor with a history of bizarre behavior, told police that his mother accidentally fell out of his moving vehicle shortly before midnight Tuesday while driving on Carey Road in Berlin, Md. He said he backed up after she fell.

“It was just an accident,” he told a judge Thursday, according to the Maryland Coast Dispatch. “She suffered from Alzheimer’s and was playing with the windows.”

But Detective Cpl. Mike Lupiwok, of the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office, said investigators concluded that she had been run over two or three times. “The investigation showed it was intentional,” he said.
