No, I was targeted and scapegoated because I was gay, and didn't conform to gender stereotypes that are pushed onto boys in our society. My family was very homophobic and sexist-toward-males, so that spurred on my older brother to do this to me and ensured the neglect and condescension that I received in the aftermath.
I'm glad I'm gay, I don't want to be straight or 'macho,' and I don't think people that are are any more 'natural' or better than I am.
It really disturbs me how popular the ex-gay movement is at this website.
