Audio: Subjectively, we find 'ex-gay' odd; Objectively, we find 'ex-gay' otherwordly

by Jeremy Hooper

-While fun, benign, charming homecoming events wherein students dress up in various ways have been regualr parts of high school life for years and years, the ones where students dress up like members of the opposite sex are now somehow part of the "gay agenda™."

-Pro-equality educators are secretly gay.

-Gays should keep their lives "behind closed doors."

-More than marriage equality, most gays' true goal is to be "in the middle of the park with no clothes own."

That and more "logic" from professional "ex-gay" Charlene Cothran and her like-minded buddies:

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson Interviews Charlene Cothran About Overcoming Homosexuality [YT]

Dr. Seuss. Bert & Ernie. That seemingly chemically-altered person who screams obscenities at me every time I walk under the 59th Street Bridge.

To this writer, all of the aforementioned people sound more connected to the actuality of the world than some of these "ex-gay" personalities do. And I say that not to be rude, purposely unmindful, or snarky. Honestly. It's just that when these folks describe a lay of the land that is so thoroughly out of whack with the lay of my own world, I can't help but see the cat in the hat, a pair of a Muppets, or a charming young bridge-dweller who yells about her desire for me to "eat her raw f**k" as being more connected to truth than those who position billions of people's pure, natural, historically-reccurent internal attractions as arising from the deliberate murmurings Satan's deceptive whisper!

Your thoughts

Wow! There must be a lot more gay people in the world than even I think that there are. Everyone in elementary, secondary education is gay, according to Charlene - especially those in administration. And, speaking from personal experience (since I seriously doubt that Ms. Charlene even graduated from High School, let alone went on to college), I would suspect that almost all post-secondary educators are gay (certainly gay sympathizers - which according to Charlene, means GA'-AY). You would think that it would be impossible for us to lose ballot initiative fights.

What is highly apparent, though, is that since Cothran (so clearly) had no future as a leader in the LGBT movement (certainly no "professional" leadership position), her choice to become an anti-gay-for-pay makes a lot of sense. Where else could one of her "qualifications" be so eagerly embraced, and foisted to a position of prominence. And, to think, any of us could do the same thing, if we were only willing to make up lies and pass them off as truth. And, of course, become self loathing mounds of proteinaceous fibers.

Cothran believes gays want the "freedom to be homosexual in the middle of the park with no clothes on"?

Who the hell does she hang out with? I've never met a gay person fighting for that kind of right. Glad she went to the dark side. We don't need that kind of crazy in the gay community. Good riddance!

You could get someone to claim they're an ex-sasquatch if you convince them they'll burn in a fiery pit for eternity if they say otherwise and give them a big paycheck every time they make shit up about their former life as a sasquatch. *funny how every single ex-gay had a life full of every gay stereotype peddled by the people paying them...*

She's not in ANY significant relationship, and has never been married. Rev. Jesse Lee...same thing. I have debated him in person on his own show, trust me, no intelligent woman would have him.

So this truly begs the obvious...who the hell are THESE people to judge committed relationships, gay or not, when they can't cut any of their own?

Just a though, doncha know!

Yea, Regan, Charlene says she's living a celibate life. But of course "I simply stopped having sex with anyone" doesn't sell nearly as well as "Look, I've changed -- honestly!"

When you're living a celibate life, no sex, no relationship...that's EXSEXUAL, not ex gay...and certainly not heterosexual!

Who do they think they are fooling?

Regan, I like the way you think!
