Magnet Metaphor Proves It: Gay Attraction ’Unnatural’
Member’s of the faculty at Nigeria’s University of Lagos has reportedly embraced a post-graduate student’s scientific proof that same sex attraction between men or between women is "unnatural."
The UK-based site Pink News reported on the story in a Sept. 15 post.
Claiming he has "used physics to prove gay marriage wrong," a post-graduate student at the university, Chibuihem Amalaha, posited that the behavior of magnets provides direct and concrete evidence as to how human beings ought to conduct their romantic lives.
Magnets have two poles, one carrying a positive charge and the other a negative. If two poles of the same charge are brought near one another, magnets will repel, rather than attract. Only when a negative and positive pole are brought into proximity will magnets snap together due to magnetic attraction.
Amalaha touted the binary nature of magnets as evidence from nature that human beings are meant to live according to binary sexuality.
Indeed, Amalaha declared, his observation "means that man cannot attract another man because they are the same, and a woman should not attract a woman because they are the same."
A Nigerian newspaper, ThisDay Live, hailed the argument as a scientific "breakthrough," Pink News noted.
The paper interviewed Amalaha, who expressed his conviction that if he’s not a hot name in science now, he will be once the awards committees of the science world get wind of his research and the advances he’s made into complex questions of neuroscience, genetics, and biology using a simple observation from the realm of physics.
"Recently my lecturer at the Department of Chemical Engineering, Professor D S Aribuike, pointedly told me that I will win Nobel prize one day, because he found that my works are real and nobody has done it in any part of the world," Amalaha told ThisDay Live.
Amalaha’s comprehensive brilliance also found incontrovertible evidence from other areas of science that demonstrate once and for all that men and women are the only genuinely possible sexual combination. From his work in chemistry, the ingenious polymath noted that reactions only occur when an acid is combined with a base -- not when an acid is mixed with an acid, or a base with a base. Further, the realm of biology offers indisputable proof that men cannot be sexually attracted to other men, nor women to other women: Who, Amalaha argued, has ever seen a rooster attempting to have intercourse with another rooster instead of a hen? Or observed a lion in sexual congress with another of his own gender?
