A few days ago I was on ISHOULDBELAUGHING and Bob was talking about David Matheson and I was INCENSED. Then Towleroad also featured him and I decided I needed to vent. So there.
David Matheson is a well known Mormon and gay conversion therapist who confessed that he found a “new life-giving path” and now wants to date men. Matheson was a prominent member in the anti-gay movement and even authored the book “Becoming a Whole Man.”
In a 2010 interview with ABC’s Nightline, he suggested that gay men needed help with finding a new way of living.
“For some people ‘gay’ is never going to work. That kind of life and that kind of living is never going to gel — ever — with their value system,” Matheson said. “For those men, that’s why we exist, so that they can have another way, another approach of dealing with their sexual feelings.”
But I feel like barfing when these men who have ruined countless men's lives for their own enrichment one day come out and pretend they did nothing. At all. As if putting thousands of men through the hell that is conversion therapy in all its manifestations is nothing. All the while knowing that what they live for is cock. Hypocritical motherfuckers.
When your orientation goes towards a gender, there is nothing you can do to reroute that. No matter how much you pray, no matter how much your Pavlovian reflexes are tuned in, no matter what kind of Clockwork Orange fuckery you go through, you get hard by what you get hard and nothing is going to change that. If you like men, you may be able to fuck a woman or two if you are horny enough and if you close your eyes and think about the men you REALLY want to fuck. But you'll go back to wanting some dick. There is no way around it.
Many of us exist in a continuum (right, bae?) and are able to have sex with both men and women. And that's cool. And I think these are the 'success stories' the ex-gay industry used for years to tout their success. But even the most bisexual of the bisexuals eventually is, well, a bisexual. And they are going to eventually long to fuck someone of their own gender or fall for one. It's bound to happen.
People who have worked int he ex-gay industry and have made money off of people who went to them as a last recourse and have put people through literally emotional abuse while taking their money deserve a special kind of hell. I thing they should be liable for fraud. But you can't tell that to the thousands of stupid souls who submit themselves to an inexistent 'cure' and pay for it in the name of their religion. Conversion therapy is now been banned, but you know Cheeto's Christofascists are working on that. It was one of their cash cows, after all.
Men like Matheson should be ostracized and never be fucked. Ever. Thank goodness I don't know anybody like him or I would be in trouble after I bitch slap them. The gay ex-gays, along with gay republicans are the lowest life forms on the face of the earth and should be reminded every single day of their lives of how undeserving of any kind of affection or pleasure they are.
So, did I tell you how much I don't like ex-gays and gay republicans?
p.s. I missed this movie in theaters, but I'm planning on watching it on Apple ^_^
