Irony At Its Finest

Andy’s right; this is sublimely ironic:

A central figure in the attempt to interpret the writings of Freud as endorsing homosexuality as a psychological illness has just died. His name was Charles Socarides, and his main contribution to the psychoanalytic literature was to assert that fathers induced homosexuality in their own sons in the first months of a baby’s life. His own son, Richard, of course, turned out to be gay – not only gay, but the Clinton administration’s liaison to the gay community.

It’s good enough when people like Phyllis Schlafly and Alan Keyes have gay kids, but when the guy blames fathers for causing homosexuality – boy, that’s some delicious irony.
