sr41489 posted a topic in "Liberals Only" RoomHello all, This is my first post! I'm glad I found a place where I can voice my concerns, as I feel very compelled to speak out against conservative Republicans. I was reading some friend's post on Facebook about Ben Carson. I only knew a little bit about this person, so I did some research, and read some things that I absolutely cannot put up with... He spoke out against the LGBTQ community, saying some very hurtful and ignorant things, which is characteristic of most conservatives; however, I was very offended because this is an educated man, with a science background and he is a medical doctor. His specific comment was that gay people "choose to be gay" because so many "men go into prison straight and come out as gay." As a woman who identifies with this community, and also a woman pursuing a doctorate in science, I found this to be incredibly stupid and ill-informed. Where was his empirical data on this "observation" of men choosing to be gay after going to prison? What experiment did he run to prove this very idiotic claim? I don't agree with any of his stances on politics or religion, but this issue really hit home for me, and I am disgusted that this man who achieved so much in his life has the audacity to spew such hate. Thanks for reading. -SR
