imageSan Francisco, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – Texas Governor and former presidential candidate Rick Perry has just endeared himself to the homosexual community.

In a speech before members of the Commonweath Club of California, Perry admitted that in the same way he has the genetic makeup to become an alcoholic, he also has the genes to become a latent homosexual. Perry’s comments all but confirm his belief that the gay lifestyle is not a choice.

“I (may) have the genetic coding (that I’m inclined) to be an alcoholic, but (and) I have the desire  not  to do that, and I look at the homosexual issue the same way,” Perry said in his San Francisco speech. The governor however refused to reveal a timeline in which he will act upon his gay genes.

The Log Cabin Republicans, the lgbt group within the GOP, immediately praised Perry and vowed to fully endorse his candidacy should he decide again to run for president in 2016.

The San Francisco Pride Committee convened an emergency meeting last night and unanimously voted to make Perry an honorary grand marshall at this month’s pride parade and celebration.

Now, scientists at the Human Genome Project have found evidence pointing to the existence of not one, but two or more so-called “gay genes.”

“Sexual orientation has nothing to do with choice,” said lead researcher Michael Bailey of Northwestern University in Chicago. “Our findings suggest there may be genes at play, and we found evidence for two sets that affect whether a man is gay or straight.”

Meanwhile, researchers at Stanford University are about to announce the results of a ground-breaking study that explains why people become heterosexual. They discovered a mutant gene which they named HTXL-1 which is responsible for a person’s heterosexual orientation.

“During the first three months of pregnancy, human genes circulate inside the fetus, trying to claim their proper position in the baby’s overall genetic makeup,” the researchers said. “During this process, a few genes mutate, causing a great imbalance in the genetic makeup. This mutation and imbalance produce right-leaning genes and eventually determine a person’s heterosexual orientaion,” they added.

The study concluded that 90% of fetuses develop these mutant genes.



imageAtlanta, Georgia (The Adobo Chronicles) – CNN’s  loyal viewers will easily recognize Don Lemon, currently the most high-profile African American news anchor who is also openly gay. He has risen from weekend anchor to weeknight host of a new news – or is it opinion – program on the 24-hour cable news network.

It is no secret, however, that Lemon has been very critical of blacks in many of his opinionated  on-air rants: admonishing blacks to pull up their pants, to no longer use the word “nigga,” to finish high school, no more make babies out of wedlock, and to not resort to littering.  Three weeks ago, he told blacks to just “get out of the hood” to escape the violence and ongoing gang warfare. More recently, Lemon defended Justin Bieber’s racist comments against blacks and turned the heat back on the African American community, to the bewilderment of Lemon’s followers.

Well, today, television viewers found the answer to their dilemma.

As he concluded his broadcast tonight, Lemon said that he has decided to finally come out of the closet. “I’m gay, but everyone already knows that,” he said, with tears in his eyes. “I’m not what most of you think. I’m white, and if I offended anyone with my seemingly anti-black comments, I apologize,” he said.

Both the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association could not be reached for comment. The Adobo Chronicles kept on getting the outgoing voicemail message at the CNN newsroom.

There are rumors that Lemon is being courted by Fox News to join its prime-time news and pundit team.
