In other anti-gay news, the Washington Post has published an article on the anti-gay movement and "reparative therapy." The article focuses on the failures and "successes" of the "therapy." At the end of the article, the Post gets some quotes from Columbia University professor Robert Spitzer, the author of a study on anti-gay "therapy" that many in the anti-gay movement site as proof that gay individuals can change and become straight:
Spitzer said his results have been misrepresented. "It bothers me to be their knight in shining armor because on every social issue I totally disagree with the Christian right," he said.
"What they don't mention is that change is pretty rare," he added, noting that the subjects of his study were not representative of the general population because they were considerably more religious.
And Spitzer calls "totally absurd" the twin hypotheses that everyone is born straight and that homosexuality is a choice.
Bring on the truth, indeed.
