I thought the article was fantastic – even if the methods may not have been the most straight forward.

MazDragon – I felt the same way. In fact, when I finally came out to myself I was never tempted by the ‘ex-gay’ movement because I’d put myself through the ‘treatment’ program already.

Interestingly, even the author of the article acknowledges how the therapy influences his understanding of himself (& I doubt he’s ever been a Xian). It provides a powerful method of subverting your thoughts and making you question yourself.

yep….the self doubt aspect of the article is interesting isn’t it.

I remember my 6 months in the live in program……all sense of self worth and knowing were undermined completely that I basically became a zombie…..a drone…..just gave over my life to the leaders.
