The woman who confronted Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson has come forward, saying that she did it to put “a face to the issue” of LGBT rights.

“Do you think I chose to be gay?” Rose Uscianowksi, a 26-year-old medical consultant who identifies as bisexual, asked Carson during a town hall in New York.

“That's a long conversation,” Carson answered, to which Uscianowksi responded, “I think you're full of shit.”

Uscianowski explained her reasons for confronting Carson in an interview with the Staten Island Advance.

“The reason was to let him know that I was born gay and that being gay is not a choice,” she said. “I wanted to make it personal by putting a face to the issue.”

“I've heard Ben Carson say many times that he believes that being gay is a choice. It creates the framework for discriminating against the LGBTQ community.”

“I think it's dangerous if you say that being gay is a choice,” she added. “It creates this idea that being gay is abnormal, and that's what I disagree with.”
