Quote of the Day: Prime Minister Disowns Lesbian Daughter

October 31, 2007

Cambodia Prime Minister Hun Sen announced during a student graduation ceremony that he is legally disowning his 19-year-old adopted daughter, who is a lesbian, so she cannot claim any inheritance.

“My adopted daughter now has a wife,” he said. “I’m quite disappointed.”

Yet don’t get the wrong idea — the prime minister does not believe in discrimination against gays and lesbians: “Most of them are good people and are not doing alcohol, drugs or racing vehicles.”

Go figure.
