'Ex-gay' ex-plores political options

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 15-19"Ex-gay" activist James Hartline has announced that he's running for a City Council seat in San Diego's third district (a seat that's been held in recent years by two different lesbian Democrats).

Though keeping with the theme, we hear those voters wishing to change from lesbian to Hartline leadership will not merely have to follow their hearts and minds, but rather they'll be required to attend group counseling, purchase books and other materials, attend therapy sessions, beat the sh*t out of pillows, blame their parents for their past gay votes, listen only to those whose political ideas support Hartline's, and pray a lot. Then and only then they will maybe, possibly become an "ex-lesbian" -- but not fully hetero -- district.

Oh, and they won't be able to just sit back and enjoy their new "ex-gay"-led lives. Instead, they'll always have to struggle and ward off the memories of all the gay leaders who came before them.

While this may all sound hard, there is one payoff (for at least male voters): If they do go the Hartline route, they are unlikely to have to deal with "hardness" ever again.
