Texas Governor Rick Perry Compares Homosexuality To Alcoholism! Says It's An 'Active Choice!'

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayPolitikLGBT

Rick Perry thinks homosexuality is a choice and even compared it to alcoholism!

And to think this guy came THIS close to being a presidential candidate!

Texas Governor Rick Perry cause quite a stir recently at the InterContinental Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francisco (If you're gonna say some awful shizz about the LGBT community, might as well be in SF we guess!) when he was asked whether or not he believed homosexuality was a disorder!

Being the straight shooter that he is, he gave an excruciatingly cringe-worthy explanation as to why homosexuality and alcoholism are more or less the same thing! Wait, WHAT?!

He says:

"Whether or not you feel compelled to follow a particular lifestyle or not, you have the ability to decide not to do that. I may have the genetic coding that I’m inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that, and I look at the homosexual issue the same way."

Wow. There are so many things wrong here we hardly know where to begin!

Witnesses at the event say Rick's vile comments drew a reaction from the crowd, which makes sense considering he was in San Francisco! We're guessing he forgot he wasn't in The Lone Star State anymore!

It's always dissappointing to hear people being so close-minded about homosexuality, especially when they're saying it's a DISEASE! C'mon Rick! It's 2014!!

    It doesn't matter to me if it's genetic or a choice as long as it's two adults agreeing to do it to each other.

    It isn't a disease, it's a mental illness. It's just wrong to be homosexual. People knew that throughout the history of America until the left wing media started saying crap like 'they were born that way' and 'they can't help it'. Bull. Everything you do in life is a choice and being gay is the wrong choice.

    The guy who turned up wasted at debates last election now claims alcoholism is a choice.

    So let's say we all decide to put his logic into play. That means all gay people will either need to become celibate or force themselves to be with a woman thus forcing them to have sex with someone they aren't attracted to. Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. If you are both two consenting adults I don't see an issue. People really will come up with anything to justify hate. I might have a little more respect for Rick Perry if he just admitted that he hates gay people. At least he would be honest that way and not spew some ridiculous logic to try and justify his hate.

    Homosexuality vs Addiction…Different Why?!


    One is something you choose to experiment with and subsequently may or may not get addicted to..and the other is something you may be attracted and interested in and subsequently realize your self preferences in regards to life!


    There is no comparing the two like the gov'na may have recently thought!
    You do not choose to get addicted or choose your sexual preference but either way one is unhealthy for you and the other can fulfill you,…i'd imagine.

    Soooo…..what is the comparison?

    Re: Mad Dog – Yeah, so just assuming that you are heterosexual - I'm guessing you think that you choose to like other women (assuming you are a male). I highly doubt you ever made a conscious decision to say "I am going to like women." Gays don't make that conscious decision either, it's just how they are and what they are attracted to. Trying to say that it's a mental illness is probably the most ridiculous argument I've ever heard. Two consenting adults being together that just happen to be the same gender is a mental illness? Just be honest and admit that you hate gay people. I really wish people would just be honest and not go on this merry go round to justify there hate with ridiculous logic.

    Absurd. At what age did Perry decide to be strait?
    its not a matter of choice its a natural attraction/desire.
    There's this little gem in the constitution noted as separation of church and state.
    The only groups to oppose equality are those who twist the words of the bible to persuade society to believe that God is against homosexuality-and guess what folks, there is no conformity in society that states we must all abide by a specific religion. Therefore, sexual equality being denied to many is unconstitutional.

    The true heterosexual men are what we call the alpha males, while the other men with homosexual tendencies are called beta males. They are less brave or more sensitive by nature. No doubt due to the fact that their male chromosome is defective and their female chromosome must take over and fill in the gaps.

    Re: Mad Dog – And what field of science, pray tell, did you study to come up with this diagnostic ?

    Re: May God bless DNA – You studied with Mad Dog ?

    [re=6698835]Re: Mad Dog[/When exactly did you decide to be straight? How old were you when you made that decision? Did you talk to your mom and dad about it? You are some kind of creep.

    Re: Mad Dog – I am thinking you're gay. Only gay guys trying to pass for straight says the shit you do.

    Hope they do not nominate him for President, they need a nice moderate Republican to win, folks are tired of the tea party stuff.

    What a narrow-minded dickhead. He needs to get off the politician podium, and open his eyes to the world around him. Its 2014. Women can now vote. Blacks can marry whites. And very soon, homosexual unions will rightfully be free of discrimination.

    I'm amazed that so many people don't understand homosexuality. Ignorant peasants. Even if it WAS a choice, it ain't nobody's business but your own. People comparing homosexuality with pedophilia are absolute scum.

    On a sidenote Mother Earth does not need more heterosexuals breeding; consuming her resources. Adopt.

    Obviously this man knows nothing about addiction. Why would anyone choose to live a life of addiction? If it was simply a choice we would not have people dying everyday of overdoses. I did not choose to be an alcoholic. I did make the choice to try and do something about it and went to AA but it was not an easy road. I deal with my addiction on a daily basis and do the things I have to do to stay sober. If I could just "choose" not to drink my life would be much easier. If you are going to be in office you should really have a level of education greater than that of a child. Although my child, I would say, at three has better judgement than this man!

  22. 22

    Oh, no, Rick, please just shut up.

  23. Right On says – reply to this


    Re: raarnt – Ignorant peasants am I right? Oh by the way how does one go about adopting a child if heterosexuals stop breeding…But seriously those ignorant peasants

    He is an active idiot.

    Re: Mad Dog – Agreed. I think it's the worst mental illness too, which serves no purpose at all, causes AIDS/HIV and will help end the human race. They are selfish revolting sociopaths.

  26. Caroline is a fat slut says – reply to this


    Re: Caroline – People will ALWAYS hate shit-pushing poofs and rug-munching rapists. What they do is VILE AND WRONG. Get over it because homophobia will NEVER stop, no matter what year it is.

    Re: raarnt – We do though - it's a disgusting perversion that causes incurable illnesses, rape/molestion and for hundreds of millions of straight/heterosexual/NORMAL people to lose their hard-earned money to taxes helping them with their unnatural practises. They need to overcome their immorality or eat a bullet for the world's sake.
