Sure, it sounds daft. But we say don’t dismiss Bolivian President Evo Morales’ theory too quickly. It may go a long way toward explaining why Colonel Sanders was such a spiffy dresser.
The Guardian UK has the deep-fried details:
Evo Morales has claimed that both homosexuality and baldness can be caused by the humble chicken.
Speaking at an environmental conference on Tuesday, Morales said chicken producers injected fowl with female hormones and insisted that “when men eat those chickens they experience deviances in being men”.
The Bolivian president since 2005 added that eating chicken could make men go bald.
Morales’s theories do not appear to have been immediately accepted by the scientific community, to put it mildly, and have been criticised by Spain’s National Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Transsexuals and Bisexuals, which sent a letter of protest to the Bolivian embassy in Madrid describing the president’s remarks as homophobic.
