  • Prop 8 trial witness: Being gay not a choice (AP)

    AP - Sexual orientation can be fluid, but the vast majority of people have identities that are consistently heterosexual, gay or bisexual throughout most of their lives, a social psychologist testified Friday in a trial challenging California's gay marriage ban.

    Lawyers for two same-sex couples suing to overturn the voter-enacted ban called University of California, Davis researcher Gregory Herek as their final expert witness to bolster their argument that sexual orientation cannot be easily changed. The point is central to the plaintiffs' effort to show that gays deserve the same judicial protection as racial and ethnic minorities.

    The trial, which ended its ninth day, is the first in a federal court to consider whether state bans on gay marriages are unconstitutional.
