In an interview with CNN, Carson argued prisons prove people choose to be gay. "Because a lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight -- and when they come out, they're gay," Carson said. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question." The American Psychological Association says says "there is no consensus among scientists" on how a person's sexual orientation is developed.
