Barrett apologizes for calling sexual orientation a 'preference'
Politico ^ | 10/13/2020 | Matthew Choi

Posted on 10/13/2020 6:47:37 PM PDT by utford

Amy Coney Barrett apologized Tuesday for referring to sexual orientation as a "preference" during the second day of her Supreme Court confirmation hearing.

"I certainly didn't mean and would never mean to use a term that would cause any offense to the LGBTQ community," Barrett said, after questioning by Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii). "So, if I did, I greatly apologize for that. I simply meant to be referring to Obergefell's ruling with respect to same-sex marriage."

So - is this where we are? Sexual activity is no longer a choice, and anyone that makes a suggestion that it is is excoriated?

Faggotry should still be illegal everywhere.

apologizing for offending the perpetually offended is probably a waste of time, but it’s part of the confirmation kabuki.

Yes.
And further more don’t make pedos feel bad about themselves these days or you’re a “hater” for “harassing” the “maps”.
Yes, we are at that point in time.

Never apologize.

They consider it to be a sign of weakness.

She’s smart enough to know that.

Yes. This is where we have been for the past 10 or so years.

Barrett did nothing wrong and never should have apologized for the "sexual preference" comment.

Conservatives have to STOP APOLOGIZING to leftists who gaslight the public into believing rightwingers are bigots for using completely innocuous language.

It's weakness. Stop it. pic.twitter.com/mhK3JjPUxW— Lauren Chen (@TheLaurenChen) October 14, 2020

Not sexual activity, serial preference.

As a heterosexual woman, I don’t choose to be attracted to the opposite sex. I most definitely prefer men; I prefer my husband above all other men

I choose to engage in sexual activity with him and him alone.

Bug difference.

I wouldn’t apologize, she has a right to her opinion. To hell with political correctness

Exactly.

You do it once needlessly, they get the measure of you, and will exploit it endlessly

I was with you all the way to the last sentence at the end of your post. Personally, I’m against bugs in bed.

Apologizing to the ugly and militant Hawaiian is a small price to pay for confirmation.

Holy cow, what an auto-spell disaster that was!

Serial should be sexual.

Bug should be big.

As a writer, I’m usually much better at checking my work. Apologies!
