If you remember, last week Anderson Cooper ran a three-part series about Kirk Andrew Murphy and the “Sissy Boy Experiment” that drove him to commit suicide. For a long time Jim Burroway of Box Turtle Bulletin has followed the lethal experiments of George Rekers. So what new insights does Burroway have on this almost 40-year-old story?
Burroway and Anderson say that every “ex-gay” patient they’ve met has still had a strong homosexual orientation. Burroway says media needs to continue discrediting ex-gay therapy’s touted “successes” to prevent its traction and that we should create a national organization to help the survivors of ex-gay therapy (as no such organization currently exists).
