Well, Dr. Seuss' rhetoric was also unscientific

by Jeremy Hooper

The folks at DormItem have discovered pics from Alfie’s Home, an "ex-gay" children's book written by "former homosexual" Richard Cohen. Here is but one page:

Oy! And here this writer thought Where The Wild Things Are was scary as a child! This lil' tome would have surely given me nightmares "ex-good dreams."

For the rest of the seriously disturbing pages (including some involving an uncle molesting his nephew), click the link below. Then, once done there, be sure to quickly grab and consume a copy of Heather Has Two Mommies, before your brain is made to believe that the world has finally gone irreversibly mad.

The world's most disturbing children's book? [DormItem]

Your thoughts

Yeah, because as a 5 year old who had no idea what being gay was it was the lack of heterosexual themed books that really did me in. All those years growing up reading hard-core gay themed picture books really warped my mind. If only some one would have read me a badly illustrated story about a loving heterosexual family I could have been saved all these years of suffering as a well adjusted gay man!

You know for a man who works around so many gays, sorry "former" gays, you think he could have found some one with slightly more creative artistic skills. If he's going to play out our stereotypes at least he could employ the ones that count.

That is seriously the sickest and saddest thing I have seen.

Perhaps i should write a book about my parents who loved me (and are still together after almost a half-century), about all the people from my childhood who didn't molest me, and how i think I'm gay because i like dick.

Naw, that'd never sell.

Scariest thing about that book?

It seems like the kid *isn't* necessarily gay. Sure, he admits to a guilty little thrill at being molested by his uncle. But otherwise, he seems to base questioning his sexuality on what his uncle did to him and the way that he's getting bullied at school.

But he never out-and-out (pun probably not intended) admits to being attracted to other boys. Sheesh, "ex-gays" are clueless...

No frickin' way.

Seems to reinforce the the fact that being molested does not make a person gay. Didn't *we* already know that. Do they not realize that this does not help their cause?
