  •  Conversion therapy. (14+ / 0-)

    Even if conversion therapy worked - it doesn't - it still wouldn't prove that being gay was a choice. If it was a choice people could simply choose not to be gay any longer.  Needing therapy not to be gay implies that it isn't a choice.

    And in any case, even if it were a choice, it still doesn't imply that gays aren't entitled to equal protection. All we have with the conversion therapy is people saying "I'm not gay anymore!" But they seem to "relapse" quite a bit. You often hear from the right that same-sex desires are so overwhelming that it takes enormous will power to resist. But the only people who find gay sex irresistible are gay.

    The book is not just awful, it's stupid. Why would being molested by a gay uncle make someone gay? If reminds me of people who think that you can rape lesbians into heterosexuality.
