It took a great deal of courage for me, a sexual abuse survivor, to gather up the strength to trust a stranger to hold me in a non-sexual way, when I’ve only experienced abuse and unhealthy sexual touch for so many years. For Mr. Wolfe and the SPLC to exploit my healing experience to further their political agenda is unconscionable! Mr. Wolfe signed a confidentiality agreement and swore not to reveal any information about me or the details of that event, and he broke that agreement. Who knows how many people he has told about me and the therapy I did that weekend! I feel completely betrayed and harmed by the actions of Sam Wolfe and the SPLC!matter.
The only pain that matters is the one that serves ideological advancement.
So your pain doesn't matter.
In the mental health field, lots of people try lots of different therapies to cope with their problems.
Nobody suggests because one therapy doesn't work for large numbers of people that it's automatically suspect.
Therapies dealing with homosexuality are held up to a standard far higher than anything else in the field.
People constantly relapse from drug and alcohol addictions.
Nobody seriously suggests we stop trying to help them recover, if that is what they choose to do.
What gays are trying to fight is an idea: the idea that people do overcome homosexual attraction.
When homosexuals overcome same-sex attraction, it undermines their ideological agenda, because the foundation of stopping discrimination against gays was that they were born that way, they can't help it, so why not just allow it.
There are people today who are very happy to have overcome same-sex attraction.
Somehow they're not entitled to their happiness.
