This article at 365gay.com http://www.365gay.com/newscon05/07/071405childMurd.htm is an illustration of the damage that Reparative Therapy and the ex-gay movement does to children–particularly males.
In Preventing Homosexuality by authors and RT’s Joseph Nicolosi and his wife they encourage restrictive gender roles for the children. It is my strong opinion that this is gender abuse to believe that men and women should only act a certain way. It fosters this type of abuse that this father did to this poor child who is now dead!
