Yeah, it's not easy to love a left hand with that job description!
What got me thinking about it is the old Middle Eastern edict about pork being unclean - it was parasites. Something unhealthy was going on with shellfish too.
I'm guessing the especially strict edict against gays is because the Jews were greatly outnumbered by people who didn't like them - populate or perish! It's pretty obvious why men were instructed in the Bible to avoid menstruating women - fear :)
