.- President of Bolivia Evo Morales, who is considered a champion of gay rights in Latin America, angered gay-friendly organizations last week after stating that eating genetically modified chicken leads to both homosexuality and baldness in men.

Morales made his comments during a recent climate summit in Cochabamba, Bolivia.

“The chicken we eat is loaded with feminine hormones.  For this reason, eating this chicken leads to disorders in men,” Morales said.  “In Europe, all men are bald, and it’s because of what they eat.  You don’t see bald men among the indigenous peoples.”

During his remarks, Morales also said that it was commonplace in Bolivia for janitors who clean bathrooms to use Coca-Cola to unclog toilets.

Spanish artist Cuco Suarez, who is bald, responded to the comments by saying, “I am going to start eating genetically modified chicken to make sure I don’t start growing hair again.”  The mayor of the Spanish town of Oviedo also reacted saying, “Evo has figured out the reason why I am bald. Now I know who to sue.”

The statements by Morales also caused an uproar among homosexual groups in Latin America.

The climate summit in Cochabamba ended with a call for the creation of a “climate court to sue countries and businesses that do not meet their goals for reducing carbon emissions.”
