Does an agenda-driven, scientifically-rebuked movement that created its own in-flux status need civil rights?

by Jeremy Hooper

Claiming that the rebuking of their scientifically-repudiated clams constitutes some sort of civil rights violation, the "ex-gay" advocacy organization PFOX is posing this question to its readers:

Click through to the link if we want to see their supporting evidence. It's exactly what you would think (e.g. noting the truths about the "ex-gay" movement is discrimination).

The truth, of course, is that "ex-gay"-identified people absolutely, 100%, in every way needs civil rights. And they have them. A self-identified "ex-gay" person has a sexuality, even if he or she chooses to instead identify in some politically-driven flux state. Like all human beings, those who part of the "ex-gay" movement are either protected from unjust discrimination on the basis of their actual or perceived sexual orientations, or they can step up and help us continue to achieve the needed gains in areas where the law is not yet up to snuff. They are in the same boat as everyone else.

But the other truth, of course, is that "ex-gay" people want us to accept the idea that their agenda-driven, scientifically-rebuked, condemnatory-faith-motivated insistence that being a "former homosexual" is some sort of class onto itself. It's ludicrous, frankly.
