One of God's little practical jokes

Scientists have discovered a homosexualist fungus, i.e. a fungus which reproduces through same-sex mating. This fungus infects homosexualists:

...the infectious fungus Cryptococcus neoformans, members of the same "sex" can mate and produce offspring...

"The findings suggest for the first time that the fungus has developed a novel type of sexual cycle, allowing sexual reproduction between members of the same mating type..."

The potentially life-threatening fungus C. neoformans invades the central nervous system to cause disease, most commonly in immune-compromised patients such as organ transplant recipients and cancer patients -- whose immune systems are crippled by immunosuppressive drugs or chemotherapy -- and people with HIV/AIDS. The fungus' global importance as a health threat has therefore risen in parallel with the increased use of such therapies and with the worldwide HIV/AIDS pandemic.
