In the Closet

Dan at Bleakonomy has great post about the tragedy of the closet, and how it warps people, and, if they are Republican, how the series of lies forces them to contort themselves and react out against their interests. Here is the money quote, for me.
First of all, can we all take a moment to observe that a man like Ashburn would surely have chosen not to be gay if it were subject to personal choice. Can we lay to rest the notion that being gay is something for which people can opt in or out? If this were a choice, this man would not have checked the "Homo" box.
An excellent point.
