Meet San Antonio councilwoman Elisa Chan.

She’s under fire after her former aid leaked a recording to a San Antonio newspaper that reveals her disgust with gays.

It’s from a meeting where Chan talks about her anti-gay views and opposition to a city nondiscrimination ordinance.

In the recording, Chan says she doesn’t believe people are born gay and finds the discussion of the term pan-sexual confusing.

Saying—‘We are born with our sexuality,’ she said. ‘Everything else is behavioral preference.’

She also goes on to mention… ‘This is my philosophy, guys,’ — ‘whatever you want to do in your bedroom is none of my business, but do not impose your view on other people, especially becoming policy, because personally, i think it`s just disgusting just to even think about.’

Yes, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but this probably wasn’t the smartest move for Chan.

What does she have to say for herself? Not much, just yet.

Chan told San Antonio Express-News she’s need to hear the recording before commenting on it.
