“Do you think being gay is a choice?”
“I don’t have an opinion on every single issue out there. To me, that’s, I don’t know. I don’t know the answer to that question.”
The Wisconsin governor said he supports the current ban that keeps openly gay leaders out of the organization but that he believes the Boy Scouts, not the government, should decide that kind of policy.
On whether being gay is a choice or not, Walker said that’s “not even an issue for me to be involved in.”
George Takei suggested on Facebook that perhaps Walker might want to choose to be gay, just as an experiment…
“To show how chooseable one’s sexual orientation is, I suggest he turn gay for a month. Or even just a week. You know, to give us gays some hope that we can change our orientations, too.
Being gay or straight isn’t a choice. But remaining ignorant is.”
