Peruvian Mayor Thinks Water Can Make People Gay

Written by 


In 1997, a movie called It's In The WaterIt's In The Water told the story of Residents of the fictional town of Azalea Springs, Texas who go into a panic after a gay local says the town's water supply is what made him gay. I did not think that a day somebody would really believe it but a mayor of a small town in Peru thinks that the water will make them all gay. No kidding!


The water network of Jose Benitez's town could be connected to other networks in order to develop the access to drinking water, but for Jose, this water, which would contain a strong manganese and strontium rate, would reduce the male hormones of those who drink it and as a result, Jose said: "We will be as in Tabalosos, as in other cities, where the percentage of gays increases!"


To understand, Tabalosos is the Peruvian West Hollywood. A few years ago, a television documentary has alleged that this city had an important number of gay and lesbian residents, and as the water will come from this area, Jose immediately made the link, and it is besides the only one, between the water and the gay population of Tabalosos.

A senior of Lima pharmacology college did not confirm the remarks of Jose, it simply told a local radio that strontium can be responsible for osseous cancers, anemia or cardiovascular disorders.
