Like, you guys, when Roger Helmer, the British lawmaker, tweeted the above line — “Why is it OK for a surgeon to perform a sex-change operation, but not OK for a psychiatrist to try to “turn” a consenting homosexual?” — in reference to reparative therapist Lesley Pilkington possibly losing her license — he was actually defending you fagalas!

“I am always surprised by the instant indignation of a strident minority,” says Helmer in response to the criticism he received. “I am making a comparison between a lifestyle choice of a homosexual who would prefer not to be a homosexual and a lifestyle choice of a woman who would prefer to be a man. All I am saying is that homosexuals have a right, if they want to do so, to seek professional counselling and advice – I have not suggested homosexuality is something that needs to be cured.”

See! If gays want to be cured of The Gay, that should be their right. MP Helmer: Civil rights champion.
