    Dr. Ben Carson, a potential candidate in the 2016 GOP presidential primary, said Wednesday he "absolutely" believes being gay is a choice.

    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.

    welp, he's done for.

    For the record, I have several gay friends, all of them but one were born gay, the other one I'd stake my life on it (and my gay best friend agrees with me on this guy), he wasn't born gay, he is gay by choice but maybe not his choice, I'm pretty sure he was molested and it fucked him up..

    Because it's a behavior, not a demographic.

    Left/Right media who thrive on ad revenue desperately search for things to be outraged about. Whether it's Fox's "War on Christmas" or the Left going after something Scott Walker didn't even say or do.

    Just yesterday a bunch of left leaning websites and alternative media channels were discussing someone who said that Congressmen that do not attend Netenyahu's speech should be hung.

    This "someone" is a older tea party lady with some shitty internet radio show with like 10 listeners. A half a step from ham radio operator.

    Well, he could have been like Howard and written a book about how being gay is a psychological disorder. ;) :D


    Although, that was an opinion that was shared by pretty much every licensed psychologist not that long ago. :dontknow:

    I think this is one of those areas where unfounded speculation does more harm than good until such time as we know more about how the brain actually works.
