Republican Presidential Candidate, Ben Carson, Thinks Being Gay Is A Choice Because Alot Of Inmates 'Turn' Gay In Prison
CBS News- Likely Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson believes that being gay is a choice, because prison has turned "a lot" of ostensibly straight people into gay people.
In an interview that aired Wednesday on CNN, Carson was asked whether being gay is a choice, and he replied, "Absolutely."
"Because a lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight, and when they come out, they're gay," he explained. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question."
Let's play a little game of "get in the mind of an ignorant radical republican bigot". I got to say, as someone that normally steers clear of any sort of political controversy, this has become one of my favorite games. Might grab a 6 pack and stay in this Saturday and practice my strategy. Anyway, a black republican? Where have I heard of this before? Oh shit! Life imitating art, Jay-Z and Nas said this would happen! So here's my question, what could possibly make Carson think that being gay is a choice. Might this have something to do with it? Well well well, would you look at that? Ben Carson used to be a rabid democrat. I wonder what changed his mind? Could it have been 4+ years at Yale, associating with predominantly white right wing activists? Could it be that Ben Carson changed his political beliefs not because he had some intellectual awakening , but because it was extremely convenient for him at the time? Well doesn't that sound familiar. Does anyone really think that prison turns people gay? More often than not people that go into prison straight come out straight. Just because they undoubtedly had some very gay experiences doesn't make them homosexual. Is Ellen Degeneres still straight because she took a few dicks in her in adolescence? Being open sexually during a prison term is convenient for the sexual needs of inmates just like being being a republican at Yale is convenient for having a social life.
"So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question."
Why yes, something did indeed happen when they were in there. It's a little thing called rape, ever heard of it? Pretty sure rape of any kind doesn't determine your sexual orientation. I think most victims of the despicable crime would agree. Listen if people come out of prison gay it's because they no longer know how to associate with females. It's not because they would rather ravage a man from behind.
Technically speaking, being gay is a choice. Homosexuals do make a conscious decision to out themselves as such. Its a conscious decision that is based off the unconscious attraction they feel to the same sex. Being gay is a choice in the same way that a child choosing to play with trucks or barbies is a choice. It's not a choice in the way that choosing an outfit to where is a choice. There is a very right and a very wrong answer depending on the individual. If being gay was a legitimate choice, that wasn't a matter of preference, do you think that gay males would choose to penetrate an asshole all the time? All things being equal, the vagina just seems like a much safer, and more comfortable place for a penis.
I actually like when these stories come out. They make me happy. Not because I agree with Ben Carson. Not because he makes even a modicum of sense. But because, if someone this dumb can be a presidential candidate I have a legitimate opportunity to be the leader of the free world. Is this there a list somewhere? I want to sign up. I'll be preaching for the day after the Super Bowl to be holiday and for four day work weeks while Ben Carson is up there alienating the vast majority of a increasingly liberal society. I can guarantee right this second that I have a better political platform than Ben Carson, and I am as versed in politics as James Winston is in the English language. It might be a small win, but I am more fit to run this nation than the guy that compared homosexual relations to pulling a Sandusky or taking Lassie from behind.
P.S. Someone give Ben a polygraph and ask him if he has ever watched lesbian porn. If he says 'no' then he certainly isn't fit to be president, and if he says 'yes' than his entire campaign is shattered. Grow up Ben. Gay is the new black. Society is cool with it now. Your forefathers would be ashamed.
P.P.S. If this guy in charge of anything more than putting his shoes on the right feet than I am moving to Canada. I mean, really?
