If being gay is a choice, it naturally follows that being straight is a choice, right? Well, the always brilliant Dan Savage has offered himself as a human guinea pig. He’s challenged Herman Cain to prove that being straight is a choice, by offering to let Cain *um* have his way with him. In his blog, Savage wrote this letter to Cain:
If being gay is a choice, show us the proof. Choose it. Choose to be gay yourself. Show America how that’s done, Herman, show us how a man can choose to be gay. Suck my dick, Herman. Name the time and the place and I’ll bring my dick and a camera crew and you can suck me off and win the argument.
Very sincerely yours,
Savage then added:
And then I’ll say this: when someone argues that being gay is a choice, he’s not just insulting gay people. (And ignoring the science of sexual orientation.) He’s insulting straight people. If homosexuality is a choice, then so is heterosexuality. Last night on CNN Herman Cain said that being straight is something that a straight person can take or leave. Herman Cain believes that heterosexuality is something a heterosexual can decide to walk away from, like a underwater house or a lousy meal. Straight people should get angry when they hear a straight person making this argument.
I agree. Dan, thank you for offering to make the ultimate sacrifice.
