You Are Who You Sleep With

More evidence that the anti-gay crowd is absolutely obsessed with gay sex. Look at this brilliant statement from Texas Gov. Rick Perry that homosexuals are all about sex because the very word contains the word “sex.” Excerpt from this interview below the fold:

PERRY: …Scouting ought to be about building character, not about sex. Period. Precious few parents enroll their boys in the Scouts to get a crash course in sexual orientation.

SOLOMON: Why do you think a homosexual would be more likely to bring the subject of sex into a conversation than a heterosexual?

PERRY: Well, the ban in scouting applies to scout leaders. When you have a clearly open homosexual scout leader, the scouts are going to talk about it. And they’re not there to learn about that. They’re there to learn about what it means to be loyal and trustworthy and thrifty.

SOLOMON: But don’t you think that homosexuals might also be interested in being loyal and thrifty?

PERRY: The argument that gets made is that homosexuality is about sex. Do you agree?

SOLOMON: No.

PERRY: Well, then why don’t they call it something else?

He seems unaware that the word “heterosexual” also includes the word “sex.” What a dolt.
