Mary Cheney Discussion

Update: John Kerry just made this statement in Las Vegas (received from his campaign):

I love my daughters. They love their daughter. I was trying to say something positive about the way strong families deal with this issue.

There's lots of discussion over Kerry's bringing up Mary Cheney during last night's debate on whether gays are born gay or become gay by choice or socialization. While Bush answered he wasn't sure, Kerry immediately responded it's a biological matter, i.e,. that's how someone is born. Elizabeth Edwards this morning said:

ELIZABETH EDWARDS ON ABC RADIO: "She's overreacted to this and treated it as if it's shameful to have this discussion. I think that's a very sad state of affairs-- I think that it indicates a certain degree of shame with respect to her daughter's sexual preferences-- It makes me really sad that that's Lynne's response."

I think "Sexual preferences" is a politically incorrect term. Homosexuality is not a choice. It's how one is. That was the point of the debate question. The better term is "sexual orientation."
