Richardson Clarifies Queer “Choice” of Words

Within seconds of getting back from the forum, we received the following note from Bill Richardson, who seemed to intimate that homosexuality is a choice:

Let me be clear — I do not believe that sexual orientation or gender identity happen by choice. But I’m not a scientist, and the point I was trying to make is that no matter how it happens, we are all equal and should be treated that way under the law. That is what I believe, that is what I have spent my career fighting for. I ask that people look at my record and my actions and they will see I have been a true supporter of the LGBT community.

Hmmm, still sounds a bit wishy-washy to us. We’ll be sure to get more answers when we interview him later today. Keep those peepers peeled, readers…
