APA Can’t Treat the Gay Out of You!

6 08 2009

From the Huffington Post:

In a resolution adopted on a 125-to-4 vote by the APA’s governing council, and in a comprehensive report based on two years of research, the 150,000-member association put itself firmly on record in opposition of so-called “reparative therapy” which seeks to change sexual orientation.

No solid evidence exists that such change is likely, says the report, and some research suggests that efforts to produce change could be harmful, inducing depression and suicidal tendencies.

Some validation for something I could have told you years ago.  I heard a rumor that you can’t get the black out of people either.  What is this world coming to?

You know what the fun part is? The right-wing will take this study and say, “There are some members of the APA who are ON RECORD saying they believe that reparative therapy works!”
