Elisabeth Hasselbeck thinks a lot of older lesbians would have turned out straight ... if they could only land a man.%0D %0D The co-host of "The View" said older women who have led heterosexual lives are choosing same-sex partners because men their age are chasing younger women.%0D %0D "All the older men are going for younger women, leaving the women with no one," Hasselbeck said on Tuesday.%0D %0D Joy Behar, a co-host of the show, immediately blasted the 33-year-old, calling her late-blooming lesbian claim "ridiculous."%0D %0D "Being gay is not just holding hands and walking through the tulips," Behar said. "I don't think that you suddenly wake up and say, 'You know, I think I want to do that.' You wanted to do it; you were just trapped in a system that said 'get married.' "%0D %0D Hasselbeck then said that women might turn to homosexuality later in life not for sex, but companionship.%0D %0D The conservative Hasselbeck has been known to spar with her more liberal co-hosts and is no stranger to controversial statements. She once argued that the morning-after pill should be banned even in cases of rape and incest, and she criticized ESPN's Erin Andrews for being the victim of a stalking because she was "wearing next to nothing."
