  1. Blimey. About time.

  2. Maybe the funding allocated for trying to find a cure for gayness would be better spent on finding a cure for stupidity. They can even test on PFOX…..

    Homosexuality is consider a normal variation of human sexuality. How can something that is normal be ‘cured’? More importantly why?

  4. There is already a cure for paedophilia, and it’s chemical castration
    It is far more effective than psychiatrists or a sex offender register
    And if it doesn’t work…real castration

    Unfortunately the problem comes down to human rights, – peados still have them and can resist such treatments because of THEIR rights and not their victim’s

  5. ‘Jeralee Smith, PFOX’s California educational director, attacked the decision to end state funding into studies on homosexuality.She added: “I just don’t think any door should be closed when we’re trying to stop attacks on children.” ‘

    Ooh, yes, and let’s investigate why some people like cereal for breakfast and some prefer toast – because it’s about as relevant when considering sexual attacks on children.

  6. Not backward at all then!

  7. i think we should investigate the causes and cures for joing PFOX, organisations like that do lots of harm, . not to mention that whether someone is gay or not is a complete non factor as to whether they will perform an attack on a child, so what this person from PFOX said is a complete non sequiter designed to make people afraid of gay people for no reason other than she decided to connect it with attack on childeren.

  8. I am never ceased to be amazed by California! No wonder its called LaLa Land! Most of the men in Hollywood films have been Gay for as long as films have been made but deny it; they allowed Gay marriage then banned it yet you can make the most XXX rated films without being taken to court for it……LaLa Land we Do/don’t might/maybe/love you !

    Hey folks, It’s already been repealed. That law no longer exists, which should REALLY put an end to the Ex-Gay Group of Crap the Religious RIght is still trying to peddle!!!

  10. Can the editor please explain why there is no window to leave a comment on the South African lesbian who has been raped????????????????????????????????????????????????????/

  11. You can always ‘violate’ someone by using foreign objects, so chemical castration would only solve half the puzzle, imho.
    OTOH, this gay cure law is so obsolete that most people probably have forgotten about its existence. Please put it out of its misery now, Cali.

    The so-called Gay cure is beyond satire. Absurd nonsense. That we’re a decade into the 21st Century and debates such as this are still front-and-center is truly disheartening.

    Perhaps Darwin was wrong …?
