Bolivian President Evo Morales should thank his lucky stars that he’s a socialist and not a conservative, otherwise he might become the laughing stock of the chattering classes. The Hugo Chavez crony is
. . . under fire on Wednesday for suggesting that eating hormone-injected chicken could provoke male deviance at a global climate change summit.
Bolivia’s opposition and homosexual groups criticized comments made by Morales at the first “people’s conference” on climate change the previous day, in which he said that chicken producers inject birds withfemale hormones and “when men eat those chickens, they experience deviances in being men.” . . . .
Spain’s National Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Transsexuals and Bisexuals sent a protest letter to the Bolivian embassy of Madrid, calling Morales remarks “homophobic.”
The president of Argentina’s homosexual community, Cesar Cigliutti, said: “It’s an absurdity to think that eating hormone-containing chicken can change the sexual orientation of a person.”
I’m sure Joe Solmonese is struggling with the proper means to react. On the one hand, Morales expressed a crackpot theory that makes some social conservative notions about the causes of homosexuality seem sensible by contrast. On the other hand, he is a socialist who generally says all the “right things” about the causes of global oppression.
It’s just social conservatives who say silly things about people like us. Left-wingers also have some pretty hare-brained notions about homosexuality. Let’s hope the national gay organizations do a better job of acknowledging it.
