HERESY: VALERIE JARRETT HAS TO APOLOGIZE FOR CALLING HOMOSEXUALITY “A LIFESTYLE CHOICE.” Ann Althouse comments:

I remember back in the 1980s, in the radical enclaves of the University of Wisconsin Law School and similar places, when it was heresy to say that sexual orientation was inborn. I remember getting snapped at by a very prominent left-wing lawprof for referring without scorn to research that showed some evidence that sexual orientation was innate. It was all about choice back then, and the choice model was deemed to be the framework upon which gay rights would be built.

It’s not merely important to have the proper views. It’s important to have the proper views when everyone else has them.
