Herman Cain Says Being Gay is a Choice and Wants to See the Science That Proves Otherwise: VIDEO

Cain_choice

Herman Cain, frontrunner in many of the latest GOP 2012 straw polls, was asked by Joy Behar this morning how he could think being gay is a choice when so many people are vilified for it.

Said Cain: "You show me the science that says that it's not. Could be persuaded. Right now it's my opinion against the opinion of others who feel differently. That's just a difference of opinion."

Cain went on to add that he wouldn't allow his personal opinions to get in the way of running the country, and also repeated his intention to reinstate 'DADT'.

Think Progress LGBT adds: "The American Psychological Association, the world’s largest association of psychological professionals, describes sexual orientation as 'a complex interaction of environmental, cognitive and biological factors.' There is considerable evidence to suggest that biology, 'including genetic or inborn hormonal factors,” plays a significant role in a person’s sexuality.'"

VP Joe Biden, Megyn Kelly, DNC Respond to GOP Debate Booing of Gay Soldier: VIDEOS

Biden

The boos during the question from the gay soldier during last week's GOP debate are still resonating.

Today, VP Joe Biden appeared on The View and called the booing "reprehensible" and Joy Behar scolded the panel for not speaking up or chastising the audience.

FOX News Anchor Megyn Kelly, one of the debate moderators, took exception to Behar's condemnation, suggesting that the audience was booing the question and not the soldier.

Meanwhile, the Democratic National Committee is making hay of the incident in a new attack ad against the GOP.

Watch all three clips, AFTER THE JUMP...

Patti Stanger Apologizes, Then Repeats Her Poisonous View of Gay Relationships to Joy Behar: VIDEO

Behar_stanger

After issuing an apology, Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger appeared on Joy Behar's show last night to do damage control over what she said about gay men on Watch What Happens Live.

Unfortunately, she pretty much doubled-down on those remarks.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

P_stanger Stanger says that people missed the point on WWHL, that she was offering advice on an L.A.-specific gay relationship.

“Whether you're straight or gay, that's player town. Did I say all gays? I said the gays in Los Angeles.”

Stanger then tried to explain her advocacy work on behalf of gay men:

"For five years I have put gay dating on the map. Nobody ever did this. There was no LOGO then. And I did the NoH8 campaign, I was an advocate for gay marriage, I stood up there for my gay friends. I've got more gay friends than Carter has pills."

She then negates her L.A.-specific excuse by asserting that gays "all around the country" are shallow, sex-first, relationship-later individuals, and then insults the gay community on marriage.

Says Stanger to Behar (my transcript):

"In the show when we do the mixers, the guys are passing around the telephone numbers, they're sleeping with each other, even affter the millionaire gets the date he's sleeping with the pool of people. My (gay) friend...says 'Patti this is what it's like around the country.' This is the gay community. I said, 'I'm trying to curb them.' Now this is not the lesbian. The lesbian gets involved. They move in together. They're quiet. They're at peace. But the gay men. They whip it out at eyelock. They get involved, and then they find out later whether or not they want a serious relationship. And I hope they use the privilege in New York of gay marriage, because now they have it. And a lot of gays aren't getting married, even though they have the privilege."

Stanger and Bravo both released apologies earlier in the day.

Said Stanger: “I am so sorry.  I did not mean to offend anyone with my comments last night on Watch What Happens Live.”

Said Bravo: “Bravo regrets the comments expressed by Patti Stanger on Watch What Happens Live last night.  Her comments are not representative of the network’s beliefs and opinions.  We apologize for the offense it caused.”

Joy Behar Talks to Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer About Anti-Trans Right-Wing Attacks: VIDEO

Dwts

Joy Behar talks to Chaz Bono about why he joined Dancing with the Stars, losing weight, hate mail and death threats over the 'controversy', Dr. Keith Ablow and his offensive FOX News editorial, how they'll identify him on the show (author and activist), Cher, and how his dancing is going.

Says Chaz of Ablow: "He's not one of my favorite authors so I don't read him...He's got an agenda so he's jumping all over this to further himself and his career."

They are joined by Chaz's dance partner Lacey Schwimmer, who says some of her fans disagree with the fact that she is dancing with Chaz, but she's not focusing on the negative.
