Posted on 06/04/2013 8:15:15 PM PDT by EveningStar
Gay conversion therapy, as it is known, supposedly helps gay people overcome same-sex attractions. But mainstream psychologists say the therapy is ineffective, unethical and often harmful, exacerbating anxiety and self-hatred among those treated for what is not a mental disorder.
In 2013, two cases involving the therapy to convert gay people into heterosexuals hit the courts, with one seeking to sue counselors who offer the therapy and the other seeking to defend them.
Here are five things you need to know about the therapy and the current lawsuits.

This is pro-homosexual propaganda.
This man: JOE DALLAS ( an ex-gay man ), will disagree with this article:
EveningStar promoting the left, in this case the homosexual agenda.
Don’t be so paranoid. I don’t promote the left and I couldn’t care less about any homosexual agenda.
You do promote the left, and you posted this pro-homosexual propaganda.

I remember reading how it was done back in the 1950s.
A man was shown photos of naked people. If he only got excited when he saw the photo of a man, he was given an electric shock.
Don’t know if it worked or not but there seemed to be less queers back then. We didn’t even know what they were till we were in our late teens. We always thought a “queer” was a person that was just strange.
When we found out what they were, we had a hard time comprehending it as it just was not right.
Wow, what a fair article.
No mention of the recent studies conducted by New Zealand geneticists that showed sexuality to be extremely fluid.
And of course, the appeal to authority. “The APA says its not an illness, you know!”
The APA are politicized hacks, no more reliable than astrologers. They change their categorization based on protests, not results.
It fits every criteria of a mental illness. Every single one. It is also lethal and immoral. You can judge this condition based on the company it keeps.
Liberace - pederast
Harry Hay - NAMBLA ally
Harvey Milk - chums with Jim Jones
If someone wants to be cured of a vile condition — why stand in their way?
Interesting. I did not know about those other three articles by her.
BTW, I just did a search on her and you missed one:
“How Celibate Gay Christians Deal With Desire”
>> I couldnt care less about any homosexual agenda.
Then WTF are you doing here?
I’m certainly not promoting any.
You should know something about her, you have posted at least five articles by this lefty and pro-homosexual activist writer.
That was me at age 14 (ah, sweet innocence). I was 14 before I knew homosexuality existed. At 15 I came across the first homosexual ever. He was about 40 years old and assaulted one of my best friends, and went to prison. A few years later, I was assaulted by another unhappy gay. So, yeah, I admit to being "homophobic."
You posting this thread by this pro-homosexual, activist writer, was promoting the homosexual agenda.
Homosexual agenda troll.
It’s not a requirement to hate homosexuals to oppose the canonical Homosexual Agenda which, by the way, is extremely deleterious for Liberty if you didn’t already know that.
I found six. This one is the first I posted by her that deals with homosexuality.
I’ve posted quite a few articles from LiveScience by various authors.
