  1. These people ALWAYS get these people to appear in their promotional materials (posters, radio/television ads, etc.) while their fresh out of their “re-orientation therapy”. There is a VERY good reason for that. They want to get them on the record before the delussion wears off.They NEVER go back to these people a year or two later and make a PUBLIC report on how they’re doing with their supposed newly formulated orientation. More shameful yet, those who allowed themselves to be used to lure people into these snake-oil therapies through ads where they tell gay people how they’ve personally experienced sexual orientation change, keep their bloody mouths shut and don’t say a word when they realise that the whole thing was a scam and that they aren’t now and never were anything but gay.These people really disgust me.The fact that such unscientific rubbish is allowed to be peddled as “therapy” and “psychology” and isn’t outlawed as practicing psychology and medicine without a license is a disgrace.

    CTV (the Canadian equivalent of ITV) is a major corporate sponsor of Pride Toronto. They wouldn’t have knowingly put this advert on the air… but are quite capable of having done it accidentally!

    The only thing I can say is “Oh Please!” And if was gay for 13 years, thank God he went straight, we don’t need people like him giving us a bad name. I mean, can you imagine taking 13 years to decide something like that. Shame.
