Netflix's "Pray Away" and The "Ex-Gay" Movement,

Netflix’s “Pray Away” and The “Ex-Gay” Movement

This really is nothing new or shocking, and it’s been happening for a long time. I’ve been posting about it for a long time. In short, there are twisted, vile people out there who truly believe they can turn gay people into straight people through a process called reparative therapy, or conversion therapy. It doesn’t work, it’s totally ridiculous, and it can leave behind scars that never go away. 

And now there’s a new Netflix documentary about conversion therapy out there by a documentarian named, Kristine Stolakis. So it’s not coming from a gay man’s POV. And for those of you who think I’m being too critical, I would state the same thing about a documentary on slavery that was produced by a white person. That’s just a fact that you can’t argue.  

Many places now are making reparative therapy illegal

In any event, the documentary seems to try hard. 

“…this really is a movement of hurt people hurting other people, of what internalized homophobia and transphobia looks like when it is wielded outward.”

Here’s more.  Unfortunately, I think that statement is full of crap. You know what I think the movement is about? Homophobic, religious straights who need to be charged as criminals for practicing conversion therapy. Lock them up and throw away the GD keys. 

And this link will lead you to a website called Born Perfect where they list US states that have already banned conversion therapy.
