A Letter to Dr. Robert Spitzer

"I believe I owe the gay community an apology for my study making unproven claims of the efficacy of reparative therapy. I also apologize to any gay person who wasted time and energy undergoing some form of reparative therapy because they believed that I had proven that reparative therapy works with some 'highly motivated' individuals."

- Dr. Robert Spitzer, who organized and began the “Ex Gay” movement.

Dr. Spitzer,

Quite frankly, your apology means little to nothing to the hundreds of thousands of gay people you murdered. The ones who went through shock therapy, a torture device in which young men were strapped to a chair with electric wires attached to their scrotum as pictures of naked men and women passed in front of them. If they reacted in any way that resulted in "homosexual behavior" they were given a shock to their testicles.

Or how about the women who were used as human pin cushions drawing vile after vile of blood putting some in anemic comas?

Or how about the gay people you frightened so severely, that they eventually ended up killing themselves? Because of the fear you instilled in the general populous, gay people were labeled: "mentally ill", or "sex fiends". And who can get a job, or an apartment, or find love when their a known sex criminal?

So your apology sir, means nothing. Your apology needs to be dumped in a river and sunk to the bottom with an anvil tied to it's feet. You're a murderer and should be legally and morally charged as one. And by the way, as your apology drowns in the muck and scum of a filthy pool of distilled water surrounded by old moss and dead plants, do us all a favor:

Tie the anvil to your own feet, and jump in after it.
