Utter nonsense: "'Conversion therapy': Therapy that isn't," by Lara Embry

Read that article with the following in mind:

One of the comments there says:

"...the author, Lara Embry, has first hand knowledge of a gay person who converted to be straight. Her former spouse, Kimberly Ryan, subsequently married a man, and then she engaged in a custody battle over the child that was borne by Ms. Ryan. The tone of the article, which includes ridiculing colleagues who masquerade as "formerly-gay", seems to disavow any possibility that a person may change their sexual orientation, or even re-discover their true sexual orientation. Her perspective as an independent, objective scientist in this matter, may in fact be tainted by her experience with her former spouse."

Unfortunately, they don't supply URL's to the individual comments.

I located this article on Embry: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1332928/Gleeful-family-day-Jane-Lynch-stepdaughters.html

It's probably not the best article, but it was the handiest one covering most of the various people involved.

I don't watch TV, but I remember the case concerning Kimberly Ryan.

I would have expected that the newspaper would have required a disclosure about that.

This one was also interesting (a number of them are):

"Again, you seem to place great emphasis on the difference between sexual orientation and sexual behavior. Can I assume that you're OK with conversion therapy if the gay child is not truly oriented for homosexuality, but merely confused and in an experimental phase for sexual behavior? Furthermore, who can truly determine whether someone is gay by orientation? Can psychologists read the minds of people who claim they are gay? Can young teens even decipher their attraction for members of the same sex? It may be simple hero worship, deep friendship mistaken for love, or lack of a male role model. If young teens find both boys and girls equally attractive, does that mean conversion therapy is still prohibited?"

I'm certain that it is okay to be pasting these here under "Fair Use."

Here's Lara Embry false propaganda without a disclosure about her taking another woman's child from her: "Conversion therapy": Therapy that isn't - Los Angeles Times

Now, consider Embry's statement about Reparative Therapy. Also read my recent post: New Jersey Assembly Fascist Dem, Eustace, Announces Legislation to Ban Conversion Therapy.
