Video: Heterosexual MN lawmaker Glenn Gruenhagen knows more about being gay than you do

by Jeremy Hooper

Is there anything more charming than a conservative heterosexual "explaining" homosexuality? Take it away, MN State Rep. Glenn Gruenhagen (R-Glencoe):

I love how these folks act like the science behind this is just some simple experiment that any kid with a science fair deadline could accomplish on a weekend. They act like because the credible scientific community—which fully falls on the side of there being some sort of bio-genetic root and most fully rejects that "ex-gay" nonsense—has not locked down one specific gene that is rainbow-hued, all gays everywhere are lying when we say our orientations feel as inborn as heterosexuals perceive their own orientations.

Then again, reductive "explanations" of who we are, what we supposedly want, the havoc we purportedly wreak, and the generalized detriment we bring to society is what has long defined the opposition movement. That's not going to change. We'll just have to be sure to wave down from the high road that will lead to us our ultimate victory (and peace).
