Video: That Phil show we talked about but never showed you

by Jeremy Hooper

We posted several times about the "Dr. Phil" episode that booked two anti-LGBT faith-based personalities, Focus on the Family's Glenn Stanton and NARTH's Joseph Nicolosi, to counter the established medical community on the subject of gender identity. We did not, however, get around to showing you clips from the show. Now, thanks a tipoff from our friends at ExGayWatch, we will.

In the first one, Nicolosi and Stanton convey their movement's convenient theories (overbearing mother/detached father) to a visibly annoyed mom:

And you know what? We have to give credit where credit is due, and offer a kudos to Dr. Phil for immediately pointing out that Stanton/Nicolosi's play-acting extends beyond transgender issues. We still think there is a great potential for danger in booking this sort of show; but it is nice that there was far more of an attempt to shed a light on what's really going on here than there was during Glenn Stanton's last appearance.

Here's another clip, this one shedding light on the actual medical science that surrounds gender identity:

Fair. Reasoned. Fact guiding the research rather than research that conforms to their desired outcome. A concern for the child's actual welfare, and not what their religious beliefs tell them is the only acceptable norm. The difference between the two sides is simply not point/conterpoint -- it is science vs. agenda.

Your thoughts

I love how Toni looked into Nicolosi's eyes and said "I think your theory sucks"

This is basically advertising ex-gay clinics... for transgender kids. God forbid we should fail to conform to gender roles.
