TX Councilwoman Elisa Chan Has No Apologies For Homophobic Remarks

San Antonio Councilwoman Elisa Chan released the following statement today in response to last week's leaked recordings, in which she described gays as "disgusting," said homosexuality is a choice, and denounced gay adoption (among other things). 

Chan says:

"The comments from the staff meeting on May 21st were and are my personal opinions and thoughts as guaranteed to me by the 1st amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It is unfortunate that a former member of my D9 Council team betrayed the trust of my staff members and me. I will fight, I will always fight for our freedom of speech, especially in a private setting."

What do you think of her remarks, Instincters?

We're weeping over the "betrayal" of her confidence.

Opinions are like assholes everyone has one and everyone think everyone else's stink...So thank God her opinion means nothing to me.

Well she can go have tea with Sarah Palin  and i hope she drowns in her own opinions.  What did we ever do to this cow.  If we went around voicing opinions similar to this but directed at a race of people we would be labeled racist and very likely loose our job or be fined by a sporting body if we where in a football / cricket team. should I go on.  

Just Shut the F@#$ up LADY !! go back to what ever miss informed lil hole in the ground you jumped out of... 

I bet she love oral sex!!!! Slut!

Political Correctness does not have authority over 1st Ammendment Rights of the U.S. Constitution! If you don't like it then VOTE!

What if someone calls you a gook in private?  How would you feel?  You didn't choose to be a gook, it's just that two gooks had sex and made a bigoted gook. 

Now that's not very nice, is it?

Once again I must say: - "Lifestyle is a choice, sexuality isn't!"

WOW!!! Can't believe she didn't come out with a statement saying she was misquoted LOL :D So original in response shame that as a she comes from a minority she can be so hateful to others and unoriginal in her views.

I'm from Taiwan ,I'm Asian ,and I'm proud of being gay

She should go back to Asia and die there

I know this is probable the wrong thing to do but....  I needed to laugh!  I am a gay man and I have the same rights to the freedom of speech that she has and the right to my opinions.....  with that being said... it should be read like this....  

"Te comments fwom te staff meeting on May 21st wewe and awe my pewsonal opinions and thoughts as guawanteed to me by te 1st amendment to te U.S. Constitution. It is unfowtunate that a fowmew membew of my D9 Council team betwayed te twust of my staff membews and me. I will fight, I will always fight fow our fweedom of speech, especially in a pwivate setting." 

She can talk all she wants...on her way out of office.

Being gay is about as much of a choice as being Asian.  She is ignorant and she breaks the stereotype that Asians are intelligent.  

Well, I'm exercising my First Amendment rights by saying that she is an ignorant, bigoted beyotch.

I may not agree with her personal opinions but I am a staunch advocate of constitutional rights. She has the 1st amendment right to express her opinions and given that she is not spouting them from a pulpit or in council meetings I think it best to simply dismiss her as being naive and unintelligent about LGBT rights.

I agree.  She also has the right to leave the country whenever she wants and take her bigoted opinions with her.

Jamie, I totally agree with the aspect of her having her own opinions and the right to them - what is at greater issue here is the fact that she was/is strategizing to move on those opinions, WHICH ARE HERS ALONE, in legislative action.  She is allowed to have her opinions; she is NOT allowed to have her own personal opinions color her actions on behalf of her constituents.  She is an elected official, elected to represent a portion of the population of her state.  She does not get to make unilateral autocratic decisions based on her personal feelings and opinions.  Bottom line - VOTE THE C*NT OUT OF OFFICE!
