IT’S ESSENTIAL TO BE PRO-CHOICE, except when it’s not. “I vividly remember back around 1990, the progressive gay-rights-type people I knew were intent upon portraying sexual orientation as a choice. I won’t name the famous lefty who snapped at me for entertaining the notion that homosexuality might have a biological basis: If it exists at the biological level, it will be perceived as a disease and people will try to cure it. That was really the same point as Besen’s, oddly enough, in that it was about acceptance as opposed to treatment.”

Plus this: “Does he want truth to win out or something more like good policy or political pragmatism?” Or, as usual, my tribe.
