“They have found pathways that have been difficult to discover,” the film’s website says. “They deserve to be celebrated and encouraged in their willingness to stand up for their own truths.”

Watch the super creepy trailer. Or don’t.
In the mood for more? Here’s another one. This one is clearly inspired by Game of Thrones, a show that regularly deals with themes of magic, bisexuality, and incest.

None of these clips has anything to do with “Game of Thrones”. 🙁
Honestly, if being a gay or gay-leaning person is that harmful to your ego, to your mental health and/or to your sense of righteousness who I am to try to get you to commit to a “lifestyle”? For many being gay is incredibly isolating and ego bruising, and they never quite evolve beyond the internalized homophobia, depression, self-loathing and/or self-destructive instincts. That’s especially the case if you contend with religious guilt or a disapproving family. There are many who don’t how to “be gay” while still maintaining a healthy ego and self-respect. So, do what you feel you gotta do. The only issue I have is when this is administered to minors. For the most part though these things are jokes. Most people don’t need this stuff to alter their identity or “lifestyle”.
Funny how the “voices of the silenced” seem to never shut the f*ck up.
And seem-eem-eem to echo-o-o rather a lot-ot-ot…
Also funny that’s it’s always centers around religion. The same freaks that are listed as hate groups and the morons who cling to it. Like you’ll never hear about an athiest ex gay.
It’s worth contacting PayPal and ask them to refuse to be the payment gateway for Core Issues Trust. If enough of us do that, they’re likely to agree to stop processing funds for them.
Hi. [ I’m a PayPal customer. ] I’d like you to stop processing payments for Core Issues Trust. They are an LGBTQ+ hate group, promoting conversion therapy. Thanks.

Thank you for reaching out, Toby. We will look into this.
If these people are detaching themselves from GLBT identity politics, I don’t have a problem with it. GLBT identity politics is a choice that eventually stifles a person’s lifetime experiences.
In the short term, GLBT is personally empowering but its rules will ultimately narrow your life’s experiences.
I think we should respect a person’s choice to detach himself from the choice of GLBT identity politics.
Oh, shut up Brian, no church is offering to convert anyone from GLBT identity politics, they want you to try and stuff your tiny limp dick up an aging fanny instead. Got it?
I don’t know much about detaching oneself “from identity politics,” but trying to detach a person from his sexual orientation is cruel and deceptive for the simple reason that it doesn’t work. The conversion therapy programs are all faith-based and do nothing more than raise unrealistic expectations.
Of course it’s possible to be celibate or have sex with a woman if your faith in your religion is strong enough — priests vow to be celibate, and many of them do it precisely because they KNOW they are gay. But, to deny yourself because of your religion is ultimately damaging to your psyche because deep down you know you haven’t “changed” and are living a lie.
The ultimate cruelty is forcing underage kids into such programs, which is why some states have outlawed the practice.
When Exodus International went out of business in 2013, its last president, Alan Chambers, said he didn’t believe a “cure” for homosexuality was possible and that gays should instead be helped to reconcile their orientation with their religion. He also said 99.9 percent of the people he had encountered in two decades with Exodus did not rid themselves of same-sex attractions.
Jaxton/Brian knows that this isn’t about “indentity politics”, but he turns every topic into a reason to hate on women, gay men and “identity politics”. Though he refuses to admit it, he ultimately believes that if a man can manage to have sex with a woman without vomiting and can maintain a hetero image then he should be with a woman and maintain a hetero image no matter the dimensions of his attractions, desires, passions, romantic instincts and romantic satisfaction. And of course, identifying as gay remains the worst possible thing to do. He would probably be with a woman now if he didn’t hate women so much. But he also hates gay men. So, he’s likely lonely as hell. He resents any man who openly loves and commits to another man no matter their identity.
His self-loathing and internalized homophobia is more apparent than ever, which is saying something. I feel as bad for him as someone can feel for an obvious troll.
They’re trying to “cure” people of their same-sex attraction. You buffoon.
Religion in a nutshell = a problem masquerading as the solution to that problem. You tell people something’s wrong with them, ingrain it into their heads, and then say “See? You’re unhappy because of your ‘lifestyle’… not the guilt and shame we’ve placed on you for being a godless degenerate that the Lord will never look upon with favor.”
People can keep solely blaming religion or bullies. But at least one-third of the queer, gay, gay-leaning and trans people I’ve encountered seemed to contend with self-loathing, depression, internalized homophobia, internalized trans-phobia, self-destructive instincts, etc. And only a few grew up in a particularly religious enviornment. Clearly, religious constraints and religious guilt is an issues. But there are quite a few problems that extend beyond that.
Don’t discredit the attempts to loosen men from the binding ropes of gay identity politics. Identity politics is a set of rigid rules with some worth in the short-term but not the long term in your personal development.
Oh, and let me tell you that I’m a handsome man with a hairy chest and pecs that cause even straight men to get on their knees in sweaty admiration. Eat your heart out.
PRINCE OF SNARKNESS aka DIVKID
Phwoarr! if anything will convert ‘em back..
No, they’re on their knees sweating, because they’re praying you won’t touch them. Hey, contrary to your delusional beliefs, not every straight boy wants a female-to-male transgender like yourself in his life.
Sooooo…. You live near Dallas? 🙂
“Straight guys”. Is that not an “identity”? And yes, “rigid rules” don’t apply for a group that’s telling people indulging a certain “lifestyle” is gonna equate to eternal damnation, and they need to do all their their power to change.
Your internalized homophobia, hetero worship and misogyny would at least be easy to respect if you weren’t so hilariously contradictory.
As I said, you’re likely a lonely, hateful person who sneers at any openly gay person you meet and spends most of his days looking for “straight guys” to hook up with. You think you’ve beaten the “identity politics” game. But you’re really just like any other self-hating and hetero-worshiping faag. But as I mentioned I kinda feel bad for you. Being a gay or gay-leaning man who contends with self-loathing and isn’t interested in men who actually are truly interested in loving a man- it always equates to a sad life. I’ve seen it myself.
Seriously… I think the “gay rights” movement is demonic but gays aren’t. I say the same thing about the Alt-Right and white people. And it’s NOT Christianity that’s anti-gay. That theology is laughably frail. I agree Romans 1:26-27 is problematic, but would mean Paul breaks the intent of Moses’ Law. God was talking about male temple prostitutes. This is confirmed in 1 Kings 15:12. Jesus himself was explicitly pro-gay. There are gay couples in Luke 17:34-35. Two men in bed…, and two women grinding “in the same [place]” in the Greek. THEY’RE GRINDING IN BED.
I’m not religious at all. Never have been, despite growing up in a religious family. But I can respect it if it’s not disrespecting me or others. And my family respects me.
The “gay rights” movement is hardly “demonic”, but it’s always had problems. I can agree with Brian/Jaxton that too much emphasis is placed on identity, and it’s generally overly driven by narcicism and socialogy. There’s not enough focus on genuinely assisting people. There isn’t enough focus on confronting self-destrucive patterns, self-delusion and self-understanding. There’s not enough focus on helping people with obvious “issues” when it comes to their sexual and romantic instincts and habits. There’s not enough focus on helping people who have experienced molestation or rape at a young age. All these things, along with extreme religious beliefs and practices, is partially what leads to self-loathing and the mentality of someone like Brian/Jaxton.
If you’re going to talk about the voices of the silenced how about gay conservatives? I see us being silenced all the time. There seems to be a site https://rainbowright.com for them but Queety certainly doesn’t do anything to let their voices be heard it seems.
