In an effort to boost her claim that being gay is a choice, Christian conservative Linda Harvey argues that gay people are secretly heterosexual.

Harvey, the founder of the Columbus, Ohio-based Mission America, made her claim in a op-ed titled Reality: Everyone is a Heterosexual.

“But try to tell that to the Human Rights Campaign, GLAAD, and the various self-important 'gay' bloggers,” Harvey wrote. “With claws and teeth exposed, the monster purveyors of 'tolerance' try to come off as noble moralists, but confront them with the truth and the artifice falls. Their reactions are violent for a simple reason: fear.”

“They wonder if they might actually be heterosexuals after all.”

“'We can't let anyone figure this out, not while this television coverage is going on!'” she mimics HRC as saying during the Winter Olympics in Russia.

“So the perpetually ticked homosexual movement will screech, prance and whine, accusing everyone in Russia of mob attacks, or human rights violations, or whatever.”

“The infuriated 'gays' are all closeted heterosexuals, terrified someone will find out and blow the lid off this movement.”

“People have emailed me: What drives these fanatics? Why are they so unhinged? It finally struck me. They are desperately afraid.”

Nowhere in her rambling rant does Harvey actually explain why, if gay adults are actually straight, would they choose to be gay. Of course, that's not the point. The point is to boost Russia's claim – enshrined in its law prohibiting “gay propaganda” to minors – that forcing gays underground, away from the eyes of children, will lead to a gay-free generation.
