This changes my entire perspective on Colonel Sanders... but forget about that. What I find particularly insulting is how he disses bald people! Chicken Makes You Gay and Other Food Wisdom From Bolivian President Evo Morales - Seattle Restaurants and Dining - Voracious Chicken Makes You Gay and Other Food Wisdom From Bolivian President Evo Morales But the big news coming out of Cochabamba? That eating chicken will turn you homosexual. Just ask President Morales. This wasn't the only gem of foodie wisdom Morales laid down for the crowds in Bolivia. He also insisted that baldness in European nations is a result of eating genetically modified foods and blasted Coca-Cola, saying, "It is harmful. ... Imagine what it contains," and then not saying exactly what ingredient bothered him. After that, he lit into European potatoes, Western medicine and...plates. The plates in particular seemed to really piss him off. Thing is, I gotta give the man credit for one thing. Where any American president, politician or celebrity caught on record making such claims would've immediately started to back-pedal and waffle the minute he or she was called out in public, Morales not only stuck by his guns when called for comment by the newspaper El Tiempo, he actually went further, stating again that eating hormone-treated chicken had dire consequences for both men and women and that, "Baldness, which seems normal, is a disease in Europe, almost everyone is bald and it's related to the food they eat. Among the indigenous people there are no bald men, because we eat different things."
