Tushnet also links back to a spring debate on reparative therapy hosted by pro-exgay science pundit Prof. Warren Throckmorton.
Tushnet’s readers are generally thoughtful and conservative. The one truly annoying comment came from “L.,” who simultaneously acknowledges a lesbian orientation while rejecting lesbian behavior by marrying and having four children. There’s nothing necessarily wrong with that course of action; it’s the projection of her own prejudice that galls. Emphasis is mine:
My point, though, is that in today’s culture gays are depicted as having no control over their actions and as a lesbian, I know this to be untrue.
Perhaps I’m not meeting the right people, but the only folks I encounter who depict gays as consistently having no behavioral self-control are, frankly, the exgay and antigay ideologues.
