70+ years of treating us like lab rats
In light of this week's National Association For Research and Therapy of Homosexuality convention, we thought we'd take a look back at some of the laughably antiquated yet still-frighteningly-relatable ways that people have tried to "cure" us throughout history. Here are but two:
November 13, 1938 -- Oakland Tribune
March 3, 1943 -- Wisconsin State Journal
Oh how far we've come, right?
Unfortunately, both articles ('43 and '38) parrot 2009.

Apparently we're all homosexual before puberty! Who knew! LOL.

NARTH mentions the APA but they forgot -
the American Psychiatric Association
the American Counseling Association
the National Association of Social Workers
the American Academy of Pediatrics
the American Association of School Administrators
the American Federation of Teachers
the National Association of School Psychologists
and the National Education Association
ALL THESE ORGANIZATIONS say that 'repairative' therapy is dangerous.

Bejeezus. I laughed, then I cried, then I laughed, and then I had to lie down. How history impishly repeats itself...
