HumpDay Funny : Confessions of an Ex-Gay Superstar

 Sadly, this video is not parody; but it could be easily mistaken as such…

Meet Randy Thomas, ex-Executive Vice President of Exodus International (the pray the gay away people) and supposed Ex-Gay.

The “non-profit” group promotes the message of “freedom from Homosexuality through the power of Jesus Christ.” This is a great read from UC Davis regarding attempts to change sexuality.  Here is an excerpt :

Based on its review of the studies that met these standards, the Task Force concluded that “[E]nduring change to an individual’s sexual orientation is uncommon. The participants in this body of research continued to experience same-sex attractions following SOCE[sexual orientation change efforts] and did not report significant change to other-sex attractions that could be empirically validated, though some showed lessened physiological arousal to all sexual stimuli. Compelling evidence of decreased same-sex sexual behavior and of engagement in sexual behavior with the other sex was rare. Few studies provided strong evidence that any changes produced in laboratory conditions translated to daily life. Thus, the results of scientifically valid research indicate that it is unlikely that individuals will be able to reduce same-sex attractions or increase other-sex sexual attractions through SOCE” (pp. 2-3).

In addition, the Task Force found evidence to indicate that some individuals experienced harm or believed they had been harmed by these interventions. 

Something about Mr. Thomas seems inauthentic. I can quite put my finger on it… and why is the following song playing in my head?
