The View's Elizabeth Hasselbeck says she knows why lesbians come
out later in life: there are simply no available men.

Her theory is that older men tend to date younger women, "leaving older women with no one," she said.

"Being gay is not just holding hands and walking through the tulips," Joy Behar retorted. "I don't think you suddenly wake up one day and say, 'Oh, I wanted to do that.' You wanted to do it, but you were just trapped in a system that has just said, 'get married.'"
