While I was not tortured by any program to "fix" my sexuality, as a result of the culture in which I lived I did make the effort and married in the 70's. My wife knew of my sexuality prior to our marriage and we were going to fix me; alas, if it ain't broke, you can't fix it.
She and I moved on from our folly and both have lived full, complete and mostly happy lives.
People subjected to the horrors of being forced to attempt this fix deserve to have the programs they were in exposed for the frauds that they are.
It is time for the John Paulk's of the world to make SURE THAT HAPPENS.
