The conversion therapy techniques included having them strip naked in group sessions, cuddling and intimate holding of others of the same-sex, violently beating an effigy of their mothers with a tennis racket, visiting bath houses “in order to be nude with father figures,” and being “subjected to ridicule as ‘faggots’ and ‘homos’ in mock locker room scenarios,” the suit said.

That sounds more like a bad acid trip than therapy. These a-holes should not be licensed to practice.

Nevermind that there is no evidence sexual-orientation "conversion" has ever worked. Nevermind that these "therapists" theories of why a man is gay fly in the face of all evidence on the subject. And certainly nevermind that gays can and do live happy lives out of the closet. (aside from the effects of other people's bigotry, needless to say)

Nevermind all of that. The methods for "curing" them sound f***ing stupid at face value. That alone outs these "therapists" as quacks.

So hell yeah, this guy should sue! Maybe then the quacks will get their licenses revoked for ethics violations as well as being too bat-s*** crazy to legitimately "treat" other people.

Coming soon to TV ads and bus benches near you.

The real issue here is the tragedy of how some gay people, in unnecessary desperation will seek out these SOB's who only want to part them from their money or some other form of recognition/reward (religious, etc).

One of the most important tenets of therapy is getting people to accept who they are.

It is interesting to note once people accept themselves they are less likely to want to change (with the understanding this does not apply to destructive or self destructive behavior).

If gays are willing to subject themselves to this sort of thing to become straight, that would seem to be pretty strong evidence that homosexuality is not a choice in the first place.

Since last time I looked we didn't really need everyone to produce as many kids as possible, either to work the farm or to repopulate the earth after a plague or famine, I suggest letting people love whomever* they'd like.

* Consenting adult, and all that.

What.The.Fuck?!?

I've hope these guys take their "counselors" for every dime they have.
