Taiwan Presidential Candidate Refused To Answer ‘Gay’ Questions

Tsai Ing-Wen is a 54 year old single woman running in the 2012 presidential race of Taiwan who refuses to talk about her sexuality.

AFP has the story:

A would-be presidential candidate in Taiwan on Saturday refused to answer questions over her sexual orientation and lashed out at a political leader who had asked her to clarify whether she was gay.

“I don’t want to answer his question and I most certainly won’t do it. If I answer him I will become an accomplice of sexual suppression,” said Tsai Ing-Wen, chairwoman of the main opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Tsai, who is 54 and single, had been asked about her sexuality by a former chairman of the party, Shih Ming-teh.

“There is nothing wrong with any sexual orientation or marital status and no one has the right to question others … We need to work harder to defend the human rights of all sexual minority groups,” she said in a statement.
