All hail Dan Savage.
“Homosexuality is a choice”: It’s a ridiculous statement that’s been around as long as bigotry and hatred.
Recently, US Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson made the mistake of sprouting this incredibly misinformed view in an interview with CNN.
Carson blatantly stated that being gay is a choice: “A lot of people who go into prison, go into prison straight, and when they come out they’re gay,” he told CNN.
Columnist Dan Savage wasn’t about to let Carson get away with the offensive comment and he had some choice words for him…
If being gay is a choice, prove it. Choose it. Choose to be gay yourself. Show America how that’s done, Ben, show us how a man can choose to be gay. Suck my dick. Name the time and the place and I’ll bring my dick and a camera crew and you can suck me off and win the argument.
Bravo, Dan Savage. We’ve found a new hero.
