Homosexual behavior is an attempt to “repair” the wound that left the boy alienated from his own innate masculinity.
Gay activists have mobilized to stop clients from obtaining therapy for unwanted homosexual attractions. Falsely claiming that this therapy involves "shaming" the client or giving him electroshock treatment and nausea-inducing drugs, activists have persuaded some legislators to institute therapy bans for minors-- with bans for adults coming next.
This is the paradox of reparative therapy: it is successful only if the client first faces and accepts his unwanted feelings. The more the person sees the thing inside himself that he rejects, and sees it in the light of truth, the more it dissipates. The task is not to look away from the feelings, but to look through them.
