Homophobia-- expanded version

By Diogenes (articles ) | Apr 07, 2004

Which of the following is now deemed to constitute a form of abuse toward gays:

  1. physical violence
  2. verbal attacks
  3. moral censure
  4. suggesting that homosexuality can be altered in therapy

If you answered "all of the above," you would be right.

It’s now a form of abuse not only to sugget that gay behavior is immoral, but even to suggest that it might be susceptible to change by therapy. As one radio show sponsor put it, “We would never endorse those kinds of comments. It's not who we are.''

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
