If by chance this has already been posted, my bad. Sorry. This was truly touching as much as it was heart breaking for me. VERY thought provoking here!

    I can't even bear to read this because ex-gays are so fucking retarded.
    I got about halfway down the second page then stopped.

    ^^ I wanted to ' test ' the waters and see how much patience I have germane to the context. ^^^ Moreover, I wanted to know the utter ' fucking retardedness ' and understand the often enigmatic directions people so seemingly often enough wive into, through ' life's ' compass, sexually icon_idea.gificon_exclaim.gificon_exclaim.gificon_exclaim.gif



    It juss left me..... . well, inordinately transfixed, really. My apologies, if it went against your grain, and you didn't care for it so much... icon_idea.gificon_wink.gif

    I read the entire article with great interest.
    My conclusion is that the guy is mentally unbalanced, and there's no way his life will have a happy ending. I can see him going off the edge and killing other people, in the name of religion.

    ".....going off the edge and killing other people, in the name of religion. "




    ^^ That's the conclusion you drew, huh!? .... .Hmm'.... k, .. actually ^^ fair enough ^^ ..... . Albeit, this specific text in the article :::



    "A radical queer activist and a fundamentalist Christian aren’t always as different as they might seem."




    That ^^^ .... . namely ( yet, not exclusively ), was the driving force that fueled my curiosityicon_idea.gificon_exclaim.gif




    Very compelling vantage points' in both societal-philosophic lens given, in the story's narrative. ..... icon_wink.gif




    The convoluted logic on many fronts ( several x' times over ), meta- physically / philosophically; and how humanistically very plausible it insanely is to need and feel vindicated, I guess. Yet, having a impervious desire to merge two polar creeds of the natural world, ... wanting to kinda lock' them both down in unison, interchangeably.





    ^^^This story ^^^... . .. will most likely, stick for quite some time, I'm sooo sureicon_idea.gificon_exclaim.gificon_exclaim.gif

    Anything to do with "ex-gay" should be outlawed, with severe punishment for anyone who breaks that law.
