Elisabeth Hasselbeck: Women Come Out as Lesbians Later in Life Because All of the Men are Taken


Elisabeth Hasselbeck's explanation for why many women come out of the closet later in life:

"Older men are going for younger women leaving the women with no one."

Scoffs Joy Behar: "That's ridiculous. I'm sorry. Being gay is not just, you know, holding hands and walking through the tulips. There are things that people do sexually. I don't think you suddenly wake up one day and say, you know, 'I think I want to do that.' You wanted to do it, but you were just trapped in a system that said, 'get married.'"

  1. If this woman were any more brain dead they would have to put her on life support.

  2. why do we have stupid people in tele and in office? they hold us back from evolving into an intelligent race.

  3. Sounds like EH is keeping her options open. "You know if I can't find a guy, I'd go for the ladies." Priceless.

  4. What a moron... so if you take that logic to it's conclusion, then all the gay men who come out in later like do so because all the women are taken. So I guess she's saying that all the gay men and lesbians should just get married. Wow, why didn't we think of that sooner. Would have eliminated all the controversy over marriage equality...

  5. Geez...

  7. How appropriate that our "fierce advocate"/disgrace of a president is visiting the show on Thursday. In one hour of TV, he will manage to further lower the office of the President and validate these awful women. A win/win situation!

  8. Repulsive...such a pretty face too.

  9. You know, there was an article a few years back in scientific american that argued a similar premise...that with populations with an unequal ratio of men to women (less men than women), more women are left without an opposite sex partner, and that the population of lesbians increases. They actually had data that "loosely" confirmed their hypothesis.

    I wonder given that the population of women in the u.s. to men is on the decline compared to what it was, if less men will be gay. Look at china, where there ratio of men to women favors men (more men than women)...this has been linked to more frequent homosexual activities...but orientation isn't just the act, so who knows. THe fluidity of sexuality as a byproduct of the absence of opposite sex mates in a population is interesting. But for most actual gay and lesbian people, this isn't opportunistic...perhaps there are more bisexuals or heteroflexibles out there (put your tongues back in your mouths, self hating homos!)... I look at most sexualities and what they're willing to do for temporary gratification and puke. No offense! LOL!

    Anyway, that's clearly not this cunt's position, and she can go fuck herself with a rusty hook. Actual lesbians aren't gay because they haven't found the right cock yet. Clueless bitch.

  10. Do you think they pay Hasselbeck to be dumb, just to make the show more "interesting"?

    Posted by: Max | Jul 27, 2010 9:53:51 PM

  11. "How does one get through life being both that opinionated and that stupid all the time?"

    On your back, of course!

  12. Did it ever occur to her that these women might be lesbians because, well, they are? And how does she explain gay men who come out when they're young? As usual, she's clueless but whatever.

  13. no being gay isnt a choice they were lesbians years ago. they didnt want to give up their families and friends. and it was easier to fake since they dont have to get anything up...

  14. Not that a give two fucks about anything on The View but do you think the bitch is actually that stupid or its all part of an act for ratings? People don't really think that do they? I mean, I'm gay, I run in almost entirely str8 circles and I don't have any friends (again they are mostly str8 men) that think sexuality is a choice. They get it...how can this stupid hole not? Its for ratings right?

  15. aren't "journalists" supposed to be smart? sure, everyone says something a little wonky every now and again, but with this one!?...

    it's a wonder joy didn't just whip her shoe at EH's face.

  16. What kind of world do we live win where MORONS like Elizabeth & Sherri get paid 6 figures a year and teachers get paid jack????

  19. Who is "we" when Elizabeth says "WE'VE done studies"?! Really...she's so interested as to be involved in "studies". Really? Spare me. They rehearse these talking points minutes before they walk on the stage...there is no "we" Elizabeth...moving on. This is an entertainment talk show...no real meat here except silly "scandalous" comments to get media attention.

  20. There was speculation that Joy Behar may take over for Larry King on CNN. As long as they give her control over such a show and let her make the decisions, I thoroughly support her there :)

    Elizabeth, on the other hand....

  21. she should really try to get a spot on fox news as a 'co-host'.
    she's blond, and shares all the same opinions as the men she would be 'supporting'.
    fair and balanced.

  22. Good Lord, I am so tired of this celebutard's leftist idiocy... I understand that ABC and BaaBaa WaaWaa want to present well-rounded and opposing points of, you should excuse the phrase, view. But when something patently ridiculous (on either side) is said on-air, it needs addressing. That they (ABC & Walters) continue to allow this completely unenlightened and uninformed redneck to espouse this kind of nonsense, is beyond reason. She belongs on FOX, not ABC.

  23. "..the men are evacuating for these younger women.."
    What has bowel movements got to do with this?

  24. YET AGAIN.....The View comes up with these fairy tail studies to prove their hideous negitive views of the LGBT and anyone who is not White.....

  25. Hate to chime in with this, because Elizabeth can be a moron more often than not, but you conveniently left out the last segment of the show where an actual psychology professor / sexual behavioralist was on and essentially confirmed exactly what Elizabeth was saying. A woman's sexuality is far more fluid than a man's. I'm sorry, but this has been proven by many people. Women can jump between ships far more easily than men can. Joy was flat-out wrong in this case.

    Compulsory Heterosexuality and the Lesbian Existence by Adrianne Rich would be a good read for some of you (and Elisabeth, to boot).
