Hunter Walker of the New York Observer highlights the lesbian past of Chirlane McCray who, for the past 20 years, has been the wife of Bill de Blasio, a likely candidate for mayor of New York City. Such stories are a lot less rare than the “gay gene” theorists would have you believe, but because the born-that-way mantra is essential to the argument that homosexuals should be treated as a special category for civil-rights purposes, these stories don’t usually get much attention.

    The door sometimes swings both ways. We are all born the way we are. Some play on the same team, some the opposite team and some can play for both.

    We are all born that way. Or some other way. “Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.”

    We are born of flesh, and prone to seeking the pleasures of the flesh. Separate the pleasure from the bioliogical need to procreate, however, and $#!+ happens. That’s why homosexuality tended to become more visible in empires and prosperous civilizations than among, say, the Aka people of central Africa.
