At one point in the recording, amid a tittering exchange about pansexual people, Chan interjects her opinion on the nature of homosexuality.
“You know, to be quite honest, I know this is not politically correct,” she says. “I never bought in that you are born, that you are born gay. I can’t imagine it.”
As the talk shifts back to pansexual people, whose sexual orientations encompass all gender identities, Chan asks, “How can that be?”
“I will say, ‘Strip down! What equipment do you have?’” she continues. “I’m telling you. Crazy. We’re getting to crazy realm.”
Stevens agrees that it’s “politically incorrect in some circles” to claim that people choose to be gay.
“The newspaper will get to you,” he warns.
“That’s why I never would say that outside because they kill me,” Chan says. “When I say that it’s … behavioral preference, they say that, ‘No, you’re born with it.’ But I never bought into that.”
An aide suggests that homosexuality could be linked to biology: “Americans can, with almost a 90 percent success rate, identify gay people by their face alone,” he says.
“No, that’s because they shave,” Chan said. “And I also think they could take hormone shots.”
