cure them of homosexuality by engaging in the acts

the ol’ dry off by getting in the shower technique.


#3

I mean that kinda kills the point if they end up liking it, but then again the guy was 72 :face_vomiting:


#4

Daddy I think my treatment is wearing off… should I get my jock strap and black ankle socks?


#5

Wasn’t this a Kids In The Hall sketch?


#6

These days I just assume that anyone attempting to “cure” homosexuality via science or the supernatural is a self-loathing closet case. The downside is that it does remove a sense of delighted surprise when I read a story like this.


#7

When you’re so bad at sex that you persuade people to never have sex again, this is the job for you.


#8

His God already forgave him.


#9

Maybe he was so gross and disgusting that the idea was that it would put them off gay sex forever. If he provided barf bags in the office then that would lend support to that theory.


#10

I imagine this scene played out much like the witch scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

“Who is gay?”

“Uh, fa**ots. Gay ducks! Uh - Doogie Howser!”

“And am I any of those things?”

“Uh, no. No.”

“Then that means…”

“Uh… you, you aren’t gay?”

“Yes exactly! And that means having sex with me…”

“…It, it means it isn’t gay either!”

“Precisely! Flawless logic!”


#11

Wouldn’t this be homeopathic medicine? (Homopathic?)


#12

I am not sure I follow. Could you explain further about how some other people are too ugly for sex?

(@ActuallyARegular not sure at all why that’s in reply to you. It isnt!)


#13

There’s no picture of this guy. Maybe it’s a kill-or-cure shock them straight treatment?


#14

Certain classes of people (politicians, tv evangelists, apparently the entire Catholic church hierarchy for 2000 years, the Trump administration, and these people who attempt to “cure” sexuality and gender), if you assume the worst, you’re almost never wrong.

There ought to be a word for this.


#15

I’d suggest “Unemployed.”


#16

I hear that logic works for priests and altar boys, too.


#17

It is basically a vaccine


#18

Homoapathetic medicine, on the other hand, doesn’t really care if you’re gay or not.


#19

Now the whole enterprise sounds like the perfect plot for a gay porno. You know, if enough gay porno is made with a “Reparative Therapy” theme, the association could become permanent – much like with poolboys and pizza delivery. Help us, Gay Porno, you’re our only hope.
