MarkK,

I am glad to see that you posted this here. Being a survivor who also happens to be gay is like being silenced twice.

It's interesting that he was so instrumental in getting homosexuality removed from the DSM as a pathology, but that his research in this area was so greatly misused and misinterpreted.

Let's not hold our breath for the ex-gay industry to notice he recanted and remove their citations quoting and distorting his work.

I love it that bullshit has finally been called bullshit. Likely the ignorant bullshit will continue but hopefully with a lesser emasculated roar.

We all know it, you dont need the guy to recant it, but at least he had the balls to finally set things str8.

I agree that it will continue but I do not think all know it is crap. Some will hang onto these antiquated thoughts for dear life.

I look for more pioneers in this to bail and make public statements over time.
