Gawker: Gay Conversions Don't Work, Says Shocking New Study

The gays! They're out there, being painfully gay, and this offends some folks, including some of the very gays who're out there being gay! For this reason, some gays attempt to convert to straightdom, which science now says is ridiculous.

1. You gotta love the conservatives who think gays have chosen the lifestyle and are "just faking it."
Trust me, as someone with a lot of gay friends (something most conservatives undoubtedly do not have), if they really ARE straight, they're either putting on an extraordinarily elaborate act 24/7 or they're the weirdest heteros in existence.

2. Like gay people want to be beaten, harassed, and repeatedly told they are going to
burn in hell. Sounds great, sign me up! :sarcasm:

I'm offended that anyone thinks sexuality is a choice.

3. I'd be willing to bet not one of those so-called "conversion programs" offer
a money-back guarantee if the program doesn't "work." Bloodsuckers.

4. I know of 6 lesbian women who became straight - including 2 cousins.
I don't know, and I've never heard of, any gay men becoming straight.

There's something going on there, but I don't know what. One of my friends was in a lesbian relationship for more than 20 years, and she now has a boyfriend.

The idea that gay people can be "converted" is silly, but people do change.
