Dr. Mariam Al-Sohel invented a suppository that would cure homosexuality. How you may ask? By getting rid of an “anal worm” that feeds on semen, according to Summit News.
I wish I could say that I was making this up, but this woman seems like she’s serious. In the video, she said that homosexual urges develop due to a person being sexually attacked “because there is an anal worm that feeds on semen.” The crowd cheered and said, “Praise be to Allah!” Al-Sohel said that the suppository works by exterminating the worm and that taking the suppository in conjunction with a balanced diet is “prophetic medicine” that’s in line with the Koran can cure homosexuality. As you can see from the above image, she thinks that this is just science.
According to the Jerusalem Post, Kuwait criminalizes homosexuality and the laws in place in Kuwait can send LGBTQ people to prison for a lengthy period of time so I suppose that if you really reach far you can spin this to make it seem that Al-Sohel’s intentions are altruistic. But only if you reach really far.
I am confused as to how people can think like this and that others agree with what Al-Sohel claims. Also, if the pill works by exterminating an anal worm that feeds on semen, wouldn’t that mean it only works for bottoms? Also, where did Al-Sohel get her medical license? I think it’s best not to think too much about this, actually.
In all seriousness, the fact that so many cheered and agreed with her is quite frightening. Hopefully, something can be done to help people realize that LGBTQ don’t need to be cured and that any kind of ridiculous remedy.
