There Is No Ex Gay

The NYT is reporting that the APA has officially decided that therapists

should not tell gay clients they can become straight through therapy or other treatments.

More interestingly:

Instead of seeking such change, the association urged therapists to consider multiple options, which could include celibacy and switching churches, for helping clients live spiritually rewarding lives in instances where their sexual orientation and religious faith conflict.

which is something that sometimes is glossed over otherwise.

Still, let’s all welcome the APA to the 21st Century, shall we? Hopefully it won’t be another 100 years before they realize that gender variant people are just gender variant, too.
