Please help keep the research and therapy alive that is improving and the lives of people who want to be free of homosexuality. Narth does not have millions of dollars flowing into it from big corporations like Pepsi Cola but we can make a difference. Give what you can.
That the task force feels compelled to use the term “positive” blatantly betrays the fact that this was a completely unscientific opinion, but a political one. Scientific facts are neither “positive” nor “negative.”
Pedophiles, rapists, serial murders, and other mentally unbalanced people think they are "normal" too.But that doesn't mean they are.
All these gay activists have to do for a reality check is look at nature's design, and how all creatures follow closely natures intended design instinctively.
Perversion is not normal. Performing sexually deviant acts on another, or allowing another to do the same to them is not normal. It's the equivalent of someone cutting themselves. It's an act of self punishment in order to release a building anger against themselves deep in their subconscious that they don't know the reason for.
Degrading another in the same manner is like striking back at the person or thing that caused this repressed memory. And flaunting it to everyone in society is a cry for help, to be noticed. These queers are always extremely angry, disturbed individuals. Always quick to become agitated, then lash out to those around them. They rarely have a long term relationship, because they mistake their lust to degrade, "punnish" their selves or lash out at another for Love. They are so mentaly damaged they are incapable of allowing themselves to love or be loved.
I think that NARTH might approach the problem from a different angle, positing that there might be more than one kind of homosexuality. One that is treatable, and one that is perhaps not treatable.
This would put the APA on the spot, first of all, because they have no proof that homosexuality is a single thing, and for them to make a statement to that effect makes it a dare to prove they are wrong. That is, from that point, anyone who asserts that there is more than one form of homosexuality, that can be distinguished in some manner, can publish a paper about it.
NARTH can point out as evidence that there are individuals who believed themselves to be homosexual, or had homosexual inclinations, but who were willfully able to change their orientation, at least to their own satisfaction.
