Case Summaries

John Allman reblogged this on JohnAllman.UK and commented:

In the experience of Gagged Dad and others, those who testify to having engaged in homosexual behaviours during childhood or adolescence, but not in their maturity, are one of the most vehemently hated minorities in society today, not former victims whose testimony of abuse that they have survived other people want to hear. Vitriolic verbal abuse is typically heaped (even some on this blog) upon those who out themselves as "ex-gay" as Gagged Dad and James Rhodes have done, even when (as for both men) their gay years came to an end before they reached adulthood, and in any case were inflicted upon them by older people of the same sex, who perhaps went on to chose a gay (and perhaps ongoing child-abusive) way of life permanently for themselves. Survivors of homosexual abuse during childhood and adolescence aren't even allowed to publish their testimonies of abuse they "got over" on the sides of London buses, on an equal basis with those who remained in homosexuality.  Many people HATE former victims of underage homosexual abuse who speak out, accusing them of "hate speech", because they out themselves as survivors of underage sodomy, as James Rhodes and Gagged Dad have done. Any ex-gay survivor who goes public can expect a lot of hate mail, if Gagged Dad's experience is anything to go by.  James Rhodes should expect to be shouted down, by strangers who wish to insist that James should tell his story, using politically correct language of which they approve, in order to document what he endured, and has survived.
