Maybe you feel some good old fashioned self-loathing. Maybe youâ€™re just feeling mentally retarded. In either case, you could consult the web site of NARTH, the National Association for Research and Treatment of Homosexuality.
NARTHâ€™s message of a change you do not and should not want comes as one of the countryâ€™s most notorious â€œEx-Gayâ€ prison camps has been shut down in Tennessee for dispensing prescription medications without a license. The perversely named Love In Action has been temporarily prevented from shoving gays back into the closet due to the license dust-up. The organizationâ€™s facilities made news earlier this year when the lavender dreams of a youngster named Zack suffered a head-on collision with the anti-gay bigotry of Zackâ€™s parents.
Researching the ex-gay movement is barf-inducing. These people have their hate-filled mitts in virtually every state. Their religion-tinged web sites include questions such as â€œAre disasters a warning Jesus is coming?â€ Hereâ€™s how Queerty sees it: Katrina came and went. Bush is still here. And Madonna is obsessed with Kabala. All those disasters, but not even a phone message from Jesus. The best strategy for combating the ex-gay tide has yet to be determined. However, we have seen some straight guys in outfits so fashion-challenged that we hope somebody will immediately start a National Association for Research and Treatment of Heterosexuality. Inborn or not, heterosexuality is responsible for a disproportionate percentage of wardrobe debacles and should be dealt with before it is too late. After all, when the Messiah comes, do you want him to see you, or anybody, in Bermuda shorts and a polka-dot top?
