This is absolutely shameful and disgusting. What is WRONG with this psychiatrist, and where did he get his degree?! What YEAR did he get his degree?!
From the article: David Pickup, a Los Angeles-area counselor who specializes in reparative therapy, said he has helped many clients “maximize their heterosexual potential,” when they have come to him because they believe there is a cause-and-effect reason, such as sexual abuse, for their same-sex attraction.
That is some of the dumbest shit I’ve ever read. Yeah, I’m so sure that people are gay due to sexual abuse. WTF does “maximizing heterosexual potential’ MEAN?! Are there actions and behaviors, outside of whom you have sex with, that quantify people as gay, bisexual or straight? That’s news to me.
