At a speech in San Francisco this week, Texas Governor Rick Perry called homosexuality a disorder similar to alcoholism, i.e., one that you can just ignore.
“I may have the genetic coding that I’m inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that — and I look at the homosexual issue the same way,” Perry said.
After saying these words, even his supporters in the audience audibly gasped. Now whether or not you agree with Perry, it’s obvious to everyone that he’s disgusting and wrong on this issue and so are you if you agree with him. Anyhow, below are some funny things Twitter had to say about the whole ordeal.
