It Couldn’t Have Happened to a Nicer Bigot

Okay, well it could have – but this happened in San Antonio and not Maryland.

From the San Antonio Express-News:

“So disgusting!”

That exclamation escaped the lips of District 9 Councilwoman Elisa Chan on May 21 in her City Hall office, where she was meeting with members of her staff to discuss the city’s proposal to update its nondiscrimination ordinance, adding protections for sexual orientation and gender identity.

In the course of the conversation, Chan expressed her unvarnished views on homosexuality, which range from befuddled to intolerant.

She revealed that she believes being gay is a choice and that gay people should not be allowed to adopt children, and she voiced revulsion toward the LGBT community.

Unbeknown to the councilwoman, an aide, James Stevens, was secretly recording the meeting on his iPhone. (He’s now a former aide; Stevens, 28, quit this week.)

In the recording, which Stevens gave to me, the councilwoman and her aides strategize how to oppose the ordinance publicly without revealing her feelings.

Right-wing politicians shoot up formaldehyde from the jar that contains the brain of Lee Atwater.

At one point in the recording, amid a tittering exchange about pansexual people, Chan interjects her opinion on the nature of homosexuality.

“You know, to be quite honest, I know this is not politically correct,” she says. “I never bought in that you are born, that you are born gay. I can’t imagine it.”

As the talk shifts back to pansexual people, whose sexual orientations encompass all gender identities, Chan asks, “How can that be?”

“I will say, ‘Strip down! What equipment do you have?’” she continues

Looks like she’s also getting transfusions from Barney Frank and Cathy Brennan.

[“]I never would say that outside because they kill me,” Chan says. “When I say that it’s … behavioral preference, they say that, ‘No, you’re born with it.’ But I never bought into that.”

An aide suggests that homosexuality could be linked to biology: “Americans can, with almost a 90 percent success rate, identify gay people by their face alone,” he says.

“No, that’s because they shave,” Chan said. “And I also think they could take hormone shots.”

… as well as the ‘doctors’ who ‘treated’ Alan Turing.

“We do not want to attack any group,” she says. “I’m respectful of their choices, right?[“]
